MIKE ON MORNING JOE COMMENTS ON THE LATEST DEVELOPMENTS IN THE WHITEY BULGER TRI...

Regarding the Whitey Bulger trial witness that was found dead, Mike says: “It’s been an ongoing saga for 30 years…Steve Rakes is just one more victim in a pretty sordid story.”

About Rolling Stone’s controversial cover featuring the Boston bombing suspect, Mike says: “We have the option of not buying the magazine. There are actually some pretty important component parts in the reporting piece that accompanies the picture. The picture is way, way too pretty for a monster like young Tsarnaev, but if you look at the piece, if you read the piece, it gets us to a point where [we've] got to start thinking about: ‘How do young people grow up?’ He grew up here in the United States of America. How do (young people) disappear into this haze of hatred, which caused him to become a monster and kill people at the Boston Marathon. We’ve got to figure that out.”
