On Friday's edition of 'Morning Joe' on MSNBC, co-host Mika Brzezinski said that in the heat of the 2016 campaign, NBC received a call from the Clinton campaign asking for her to be "pulled off the air."
"That's just -- shooting the wrong messenger," she quipped.
MIKA BRZEZINKSI, MSNBC: Listen, when I was concerned the campaign was not understanding that perhaps there was some arrogance, that they need to get off their high horse and understand that this wasn't over -- I'll just say it. NBC received a call from the campaign.
Like I had done something that was journalistically inappropriate and needed to be pulled off the air. I mean, think about that. That's just -- shooting the wrong messenger.
