Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough took a detour during his interview with White House Press Secretary Jay Carney on Wednesday morning to dress down the spokesman for bringing “talking points” on his show. Scarborough’s fuse was lit when Carney invoked “phony scandals.” Carney argued that the “scandal” part of the IRS affair was mostly the result of “cherry-picked” and “selectively released” information by House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, then ginned up by an eager media that forgot the story once the evidence didn’t support the salacious headlines. The MSNBC host, a former GOP congressman, didn’t appreciate the IRS scandal being referred to as “phony.”
