Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski have been making it look like they’re reporting from different locations lately. But they’re actually both broadcasting from the same place and only using two different backdrops.
The New York Post’s Page Six reports:
How Joe and Mika have been tricking ‘Morning Joe’ audience
Married MSNBC co-anchors Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski are reportedly making it look like they’re broadcasting their show “Morning Joe” from different locations, when they’re actually traveling together.
Fans have noticed that the duo have not been broadcasting their show from New York lately — and they appear to be co-hosting from two Washington, DC, locations, judging from different Beltway backdrops behind each anchor.
But Washington Post reporter Paul Farhi said on Twitter of Scarborough and Brzezinski: “They’re broadcasting from a home studio in Jupiter [in Florida]. And there’s no formal set in their home studio, just a couple of (Washington) backdrops. Thus, a wide shot is out of the question.”
He added via Twitter, “Joe and Mika are actually sitting a few feet away from each other. But they each address their own camera rather than turning to speak to each other (because doing that would expose the fact that they’re sitting on a makeshift set).”

Is there any other fake aspect of this show of which we should be aware?
