It’s rough times right now in Ferguson, Missouri. Looting, riots, arrests, allegations of police brutality (both as the cause of Michael Brown’s death as well as a continued trend in the days since), and the race issue is an absolute tinderbox in that community.
But it’s also rough times on MSNBC’s Ronan Farrow Daily, which is currently the lowest ranked show on cable news in its time-slot, trailing both Fox and CNN. With all that pressure, it isn’t surprising that young Ronan would make the cringe-worthy flub above. Still, it was pretty jarring to witness. Perhaps he had been stricken with a temporary case of “Black Mother-itis.”
Maybe we’re being a bit too hard on the kid, though. After all, he’s not the only one making Freudian slips on MSNBC’s airwaves. Remember when Mika Brzezinski let this one fly just a couple weeks back during Morning Joe‘s Israel coverage?
Sometimes, even a teleprompter can’t save these winners.
