MSNBC Morning Joe Female Co-Host Loves How MSNBC Deals With Womens Issues

October 20, 2012

This morning, as MSNBC’s Morning Joe came to an end, co-host Mika Brzezinski had some praise for colleagues and the company she works for. “We’ve been talking a lot this week about women and equal pay and all these issues,” she said. “I have to say, in all seriousness, I’m very lucky to be working with you [co-host Joe Scarborough] and for a company [MSNBC] who has actually dealt with this problem transparently.”

Which basically amounts to Brzezinski saying that she is “lucky” to get paid half as much as Joe Scarborough.

Scarborough makes a cool $4 million per year, while Brzezinski’s salary is half as much, coming in at $2 million per year.

For Brzezinski’s part, it’s more than a bit odd that she would play down the problems at MSNBC now. After all, her public dispute with MSNBC about pay equity has been well known. In fact, she’s made it herself on her own show. MSNBC Brzezinski taking one for the team.
