Mmm, mmm , MMM! Famed BBC Humor is MIA along with Media Matters’.


On Monday’s Morning Joe, “conservative” (for MSNBC) host Joe Scarborough moderated a panel discussion that would be the main talking point for the day on the liberal network— conservative celebration at Obama’s humiliation in Copenhagen.
