Yesterday, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough accidentally dropped the f-bomb while live on air. After apologizing, Scarborough said, “My wife is going to kill me when I get home.” (Watch the incident here.) The show will now have a seven-second delay to protect against future outbursts. An MSNBC spokesman said that no other shows on the network will have the delay, which was reportedly a “mutual decision.” Former MSNBC morning host Don Imus had a similar arrangement on his show.
