P.S. Rachel, Do You KNOW Who Cory Booker Really Is?!

EXCELLENT REALITY CHECK: Watch the Lawrence show segments on Cory Booker with Martin Bashir guest-hosting. Steve Kornacki and Kristal Ball cast a much-needed spell of context and reality on the continuing Booker farce. Kornacki, in particular, who has covered this guy from the beginning of his political career, described him as a "third way" "centrist" business Democrat, chummy with Wall Street and uncomfortable with the attacks on his friends at Bain. Kornacki even took out the Booker quote to that effect, which he had written down on a piece of paper. Now that's what I call a real journalist. Steve has this guy down PAT. And he's been a frequent guest on TRMS. (Ever considered picking his brain on Cory Booker, Rachel?) Blind faith is no way to do interviews as the PEOPLE's surrogate.
