Half-assed but half-right: S.E. Cupp and Joe Scarborough
Yes, there is a conservative media echo chamber. And yes, conservatives would be wise to think about what it will require to broaden their approach to reach more people in some cases, or to some degree.
Where Scarborough and Cupp go wrong is in bashing what exists. Augmenting, or expanding on it doesn’t mean there is no role for a conservative media that primarily targets conservatives. Your average American most likely wouldn’t like the same approach activist conservatives might enjoy. But both forms of media have their place.
Cupp and Scarborough’s thoughts are half-baked and come off as self-promoting and self-serving given their NBC connection, more than anything.
Political commentators Joe Scarborough and and S.E. Cupp are two of the most prominent conservatives in media willing to criticize other conservatives in a big way.
Both work for MSNBC (which they both acknowledge is a left-leaning news channel). Both wrote columns today targeting their colleagues in the conservative media business.
