MSNBC host Joe Scarborough: Journalists arrested in Ferguson just 'want to get on TV'

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough on Thursday accused two reporters who were detained while covering the protests in Ferguson, Missouri, of disobeying police solely so they could get a turn in the spotlight.

"I've been in places where police officers said, 'All right, you know what, this is cordoned off, you guys need to move along,'" Scarborough said. "You know what I do? I go, 'Yes, sir,' or 'Yes, ma'am.' I don't sit there and have a debate and film the police officer, unless I want to get on TV and have people talk about me the next day."

Scarborough's argument begins around the 2:45 mark in the video below:
