It’s their words against his… Or is it really? Fox News is denying claims made in Mother Jones Washington Bureau Chief David Corn’s latest book, Showdown: The Inside Story of How Obama Fought Against Boehner, Cantor, and the Tea Party. Corn quotes President Obama blaming Fox News for “losing white males” in 2010. The President blasted the station for trumpeting the idea that he was “a Muslim, 24/7.” Last night, Bret Baier defended his network, which didn’t sit too well with Corn. We’ll ask him to flesh out the points he raised in his counterargument.
We’ll also talk with Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) about Ryan’s budget blueprint. The Ranking Member of the Budget Committee says that Mitt Romney would love the proposal, considering it “gives another round of tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans.”
And rounding out the show, is New York City’s first Chief Digital Officer Rachel Sterne. She’ll give us the DL on what Mayor Michael Bloomberg (I-NYC) is doing to keep the Big Apple tech savvy and competitive with Silicon Valley. Sterne is also a bit of a celebrity in the digital space- especially, among women. Check out her profile piece in Vogue and see why she makes being geek so chic.
And don’t forget - we’ll hash out the results from the Illinois GOP Primary. Will Romney grab a huge win? Or will Santorum take a bigger chunk of the delegate pie? Watch Morning Joe at 6AM ET.
