Morning Schmo or Morning Schmoe (MSNBC’s Morning Joe nickname)

MSNBC’s Morning Joe ("joe" is slang for coffee) is a moring political show that began in April 2007. The nickname “Morning Schmo(e)” ("schmo" is slang for a jerk) has been cited in print since at least July 2007. Conservative radio talk show host Mark Levin uses “Morning Schmo” as part of his extensive regular lexicon of nicknames.


Wikipedia: Morning Joe
Morning Joe is a weekday morning talk show on MSNBC, with Joe Scarborough discussing the news of the day in a panel format with co-hosts Mika Brzezinski and Willie Geist. It was created as the replacement for Imus in the Morning, which was canceled in April 2007 after simulcasting on MSNBC since 1996. It airs from 6AM to 9AM Eastern Time.

Wow…Morning Schmoe actually showed some signs of life on Monday, though I’m sure that was just a one-day blip. All things considered, the debate numbers were pretty decent IMO (i.e. middle of summer, decent weather).

Mark Levin Radio Show Touts NewsBusters Story on Joe Scarborough
By Scott Whitlock | October 18, 2007 | 09:37
On Wednesday, nationally syndicated radio show host Mark Levin picked up and expanded on the story of MSNBC host Joe Scarborough lauding Al Gore, first reported in NewsBusters. Levin described “Morning Schmo,” what he calls “Morning Joe,” as “a program I rarely watch” and railed against Scarborough’s declaration that “Al Gore wins” on global warming. The host also cited “our friends at the Media Research Center and NewsBusters” for bringing the comments of the “MSLSD” host to light.
