But viewers may not notice much of a difference: MSNBC has gone to considerable lengths to make it seem as if Scarborough has stayed put in the newsroom while Brzezinski appears to be on the road. But the romancing anchors’ production team has had enough.

“Joe and Mika are away together again,” huffed a show source. “ ‘Morning Joe’ is being produced as if they’re in two different locations. They are not! They are together — they are always together,” the source added.

On recent shows, instead of sitting together at the regular table, Scarborough has appeared in front of a blue screen, similar to the ones of the NYC set, displaying the name of the show, while Brzezinski has been sitting in front of what seems to be a TV production office.
