MSNBC host Joe Scarborough called out the “B.S. being spewed” his own network and others on the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri in August. Scarborough exposed the networks for reporting lies that claim Brown was shot in the back or with his hands up, citing the forensic evidence and witness testimony.
“I have sat here quietly and listened to B.S. being spewed all over this network and all over other networks,” Scarborough proclaimed. “I can’t take it anymore.”
Scarborough said he had it when five St. Louis Rams players emerged from the tunnel with their hands up, a common expression used by the rioters and so-called protestors that is based upon a widely debunked account. The initial claims came from Dorian Johnson, a co-conspirator in the strong arm robbery committed by Brown only moments before Officer Darren Wilson shot the teenager in self-defense.
“There are so many great people to embrace as heroes in the black community,” Scarborough added. “Deciding you’re going to embrace a guy that knocked over a convenience store and then, according to grand jury testimony, acted in ways that would get my children shot … that’s your hero, really?”
