Why the U.S. Executive Office watches Joe Scarborough & Mika Brzezinski on ‘Morning Joe’ daily
President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and most of their top aides are avid watchers of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, hosted by JOE SCARBOROUGH and MIKA BRZEZINSKI. One White House official reported that much of President Biden’s support staff feel that Morning Joe is the fairest media outlet. According to Axios, “The president often calls co-host Joe Scarborough — a former Republican congressman… to get Scarborough's take on issues.”
Their even-keeled interview style has granted Scarborough and Brzezinski unprecedented access to the Oval Office. Scarborough conducted a touching personal interview with President Biden, and Brzezinski sat down with First Lady Jill Biden to discuss the demands and challenges of running a presidential campaign. Skilled political commentators, knowledgeable interviewers, and effective moderators, Scarborough and Brzezinski are at the helm of today’s most influential political news.
Mika Brzezinski is the co-host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, founder of “Know Your Value” and author of four best-selling books. In 2015, Mika launched “Know Your Value,” a nationwide movement in partnership with NBCUniversal to support an empowered and inclusive community that helps all women recognize, and be recognized for, their worth in business and in life.
Prior to joining MSNBC in 2007, Mika was an anchor of CBS Evening News Weekend Edition and a CBS News correspondent who frequently contributed to CBS Sunday Morning and 60 Minutes.
In 2018, Mika was awarded with the New York Women in Communications’ Matrix Award. Mika, along with Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough, was inducted into the Cable News Hall of Fame in 2016. Mika also served as a Visiting Fellow at the Institute of Politics at Harvard’s Kennedy School in the fall of 2017.
Mika recently released EARN IT!: Know Your Value and Grow Your Career, in Your 20s and Beyond with co-author Daniela Pierre-Bravo, which provides young women the tools to find their voices and build success.
Former Congressman Joe Scarborough (R-Fla.) is creator and co-host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” alongside Mika Brzezinski—a show that Time Magazine calls “revolutionary.” “Morning Joe” features interviews with top newsmakers and in-depth analysis of the day’s biggest stories. The New York Times has ranked Morning Joe as one of today’s top morning news shows and has praised Joe and Mika's natural repartee and off-the-cuff commentary. The New Yorker has described the show as "appallingly entertaining.” In 2016, Joe, along with host Mika Brzezinski, was inducted into the Cable Hall of Fame.
Joe was named to the prestigious “Time 100” list of the world’s most influential people, and Vanity Fair named both Joe and Mika to their 2012 list of “Top Media Power Players.”
In addition to his career in television, Joe is a Washington Post contributor, as well as a two-time New York Times best-selling author. His first work, Rome Wasn’t Burnt in a Day, predicted the collapse of the Republican majority and U.S. economy due to his party's reckless spending. His second book, The Last Best Hope: Restoring Conservatism and America's Promise, draws on the forgotten genius of conservatism to offer a road map for the movement and the country.
Most recently, Joe released The Right Path: From Ike to Reagan, How Republicans Once Mastered Politics—and Can Again, which looks back in time to discern how Republicans once dominated American public life. From Eisenhower’s refusal to let “the perfect be the enemy of the good” to Reagan’s charismatic but resolutely practical genius, Joe shows how principled pragmatism combined with a commitment to core conservative values led to victory after victory.
Joe served as a member of Congress from 1994-2001. While in office, he was a member of the Judiciary, Armed Services, Oversight, and National Security committees.
