Two modest cable news egos were at each others throats Friday. It started after MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough called President-elect Donald Trump "dead wrong on Russia," and said Fox News' Sean Hannity's interview with Julian Assange was "repulsive."
Hannity, naturally, took to Twitter to respond, in part by accusing Scarborough of secretly gunning for a job at his network. What ensued was an exemplar of restraint and respect.
Butting into a discussion between Scarborough and Hillary Clinton’s campaign press secretary, Brian Fallon, Hannity accused Scarborough of betraying journalistic integrity, conservatism, and his employer.
Hannity also seemed to be responding to comments Scarborough made on the “Morning Joe” broadcast Friday morning, when he called Hannity’s recent interview with Wikileaks founder a “bromance” and “repulsive.”
