MSNBC host Joe Scarborough on Tuesday slammed the “so-called journalists” who have already assumed Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is guilty of sexual assault.

Mr. Scarborough, a Republican-turned-independent, said on “Morning Joe” that news networks were guilty of being in the tank for one side or the other.

“We’ve been harshly critical of Fox News for being in the tank and being state television for Donald Trump—” he said.

“It’s both sides,” co-host Mika Brzezinski chimed in. “It’s everywhere. It’s mainstream. All across the board.”

Mr. Scarborough continued, “Let me tell you something, what we’ve seen the last week has made me want to call networks and put a ‘D’ in front of the name of the so-called journalists that have already decided that Brett Kavanaugh is a rapist.

“It’s sick,” he said.

“It’s frustrating,” Ms. Brzezinski added.

Judge Kavanaugh has strongly denied claims of sexual misconduct in high school and during his time at Yale University. He is set to defend himself before the Senate Judiciary Committee this week.
