CNN pokes fun at MSNBC slogan in ad
CNN has taken out a full page add in the New York Times touting the wins its morning show “New Day” has racked up against MSNBC‘s “Morning Joe” and managed to turn the NBC owned network’s own slogan against it.
The ad screams “Sorry, Joe. While you were leaning forward, we were moving ahead!” and then references “New Days” recent ratings gains of the MSNBC offering, which is hosted by former Florida congressman Joe Scarborough, whose name is referenced in the ad headline.
The headline, of course, is poking fun at MSNBC’s “Lean Forward” tagline that touts its progressive values.
