Savannah Guthrie vs. MSNBC’s Writers

Daily Rundown co-host Savannah Guthrie did her part to keep the nation’s airwaves free of double entendre at the end of the show this morning, when she stopped reading her teleprompter half-way through an item about Playboy selling a hard drive with the magazine’s past issues on it. Clearly embarrassed, she said co-host Chuck Todd should have been given the duty of reading the item. Then, she said her lines sounded “dirty” and asked, “Who wrote this?” She said she wasn’t going to read anymore and turned to Todd for some banter about how out-of-date Playboy is. Memo to Daily Rundown producers: Please, don’t feed Savannah dirty lines.
