Scarborough: NY Times Has a ‘Naked Agenda’ Against Chris Christie

On his Thursday MSNBC broadcast, “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough lashed out at The New York Times for its agenda in dealing with Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ), a potential 2016 candidate for the Republican presidential nomination.

According to Scarborough, the Times has had a “naked agenda” against the embattled New Jersey Republican from the beginning.

I want to show the headline and we just got this printed online. But, ‘Even in New Hampshire Bridgegate Dogs Chris Christie.’ That’s just — I mean, New York Times, you were doing some great work in a lot of areas and good on you. I was just talking about what an extraordinary job the new editor is doing but they have had a naked agenda on driving this story from the very beginning and that is an embarrassing headline for The New York Times to write this morning. I’m not defending Chris Christie, he may not run, he may get indicted, he may get 1 percent – we don’t know what’s going to happen.”

“But for that to be the headline, a major national figure going to New Hampshire is embarrassing for The New York Times and the article doesn’t back it up at all,” he added.
