Morning Joe Panel Goes Easy on Mylan CEO

Is it because of their close relationship with the CEO's father, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV)?

On Wednesday, MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” had the CEO of Mylan, Heather Bresch, on to explain why consumers saw a drastic increase in the price of EpiPens last year. Mylan owns the rights to the EpiPen.

The panel was very gracious with Bresch. The increase in EpiPen’s prices was a rare topic that drew backlash from both sides of the aisle, and Bresch seemed like a guest that MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” panel would scrutinize.

Just yesterday, Mika Brzezinski raked a House Freedom Caucus member over the coals over the issue of paid family leave.

The “Morning Joe” panel’s unusual behavior towards Bresch might be explained by their relationship with Bresch’s father, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV). The panel failed to disclose Bresch’s relationship to Manchin during her interview.

Both Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski have previously bragged about going to parties on Manchin’s boat in Washington D.C., and have even suggested doing their show from there.
