MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski thinks that Democrats don’t have a media network analogous to Fox News, which she regards as “a mouthpiece for the Republican Party.”

The comparison arose when Brzezinski suggested that Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus was wrong, in light of the fact that a conservative media outlet exists, to pressure CNN and NBC Entertainment to drop their Hillary Clinton biopic.

“It is a mouthpiece for the Republican Party,” she said.

“I’m sorry — I can’t be quiet here,” Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough, a former Republican congressman, replied. “What do you think MSNBC is at night?”

Brzezinski said the two networks are not the same. “Of course you don’t think so, because you’re a Democrat,” Scarborough replied.
