MSNBC Hosts Fail to Question Chicago Mayor on Smollett Case

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough and Mike Brzezinski recently failed to ask Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel any questions pertaining to the high profile Jussie Smollett case unfolding in his city.

According to Fox News:

MSNBC’s coverage of the scandal surrounding “Empire” star Jussie Smollett continues to raise eyebrows.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel was a guest on Monday’s “Morning Joe,” but the hosts did not ask Emanuel about Smollett. Oddly, co-host Mika Brzezinski teased the segment by noting that Emanuel would discuss the case – but then the moment never came.

“Still ahead, Chicago police blasted Empire actor Jussie Smollett last week, accusing him of staging a hate crime because he was unhappy with his salary,” she said. “We’ll get Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s reaction to the alleged incident, next on ‘Morning Joe.’”

After a commercial break, Emanuel discussed the fact that Mexico isn’t paying for a wall along the southern border, the 2020 Democratic field and various things that he accomplished during his time as mayor of Chicago. Smollett was never touched on while Emanuel conversed with the “Morning Joe” co-hosts.

Last week the network took heat after failing to give the story any attention during their primetime coverage.
