Right before a commercial break on today's Morning Joe, MSNBC's camera innocently panned to Chuck Todd and David Gregory to plug the show's next segment, and bam! we get Todd's one-fingered salute to someone off camera. Todd smiled after flashing the bird, so it hardly seems malicious, but it's not the first time Morning Joe has been the scene of things you wouldn't expect to see on national TV. Two weeks ago we had Ann Coulter calling someone a "douche bag" on the show. But that kind of behavior is expected from Coutler. Todd, you're a real journalist! You're not allowed to express any feelings on air.
