Scarborough Rips Reporter: 'She Chose To Lie'

HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski lit into a New York Post reporter on Monday for publishing what they said was a false item about their conversation with the head of Time Warner.

The item was published in Saturday's paper. It reported that, at the Mirror Awards for media journalism last week, Scarborough and Brzezinski "buttonholed" Time Warner Chief Jeffrey Bewkes. According to Post reporter Claire Atkinson, this is how the interaction played out:

The "Morning Joe" hosts, who just lost their executive producer, Chris Licht, to CBS News, made a tag-team pitch about moving their politically oriented coffee klatch to a morning slot on CNN.

Scarborough didn't skip a beat when warned that On The Money was listening, continuing pitching about how much more convenient the commute to CNN's Columbus Circle headquarters would be.

Scarborough and Brzezinski remembered the meeting differently, as they told the Post. In their telling, Bewkes approached them and joked about having their show move to CNN. ("Morning Joe: is significantly higher-rated than its CNN competition, "American Morning.") Scarborough said he joked back about his morning commute. And that was that.

"It's a lie," Scarborough said. "...She was standing there. She heard the whole thing. She chose to lie anyway."

Brzezinski said that she called the Post for a retraction and has not received one. "They better retract it," Scarborough said.

Eventually, Sierra and Josh Davies were arrested for it. Josh remains in the Spokane County Jail, facing 22 charges ranging from theft to money laundering. Sierra is facing brand new charges: prostitution.
