MSNBC's "Morning Joe" host Mika Brzezinski on Thursday said Fox News' Megyn Kelly was "rude" the way she cut off GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney during an in-studio interview to go to a commercial break the day before.
Kelly talked over Romney, telling him to wrap up his comments, before the show abruptly went to a commercial.
"Hard break," the "Morning Joe" panel said after a clip from the interview played played. "Hard break. What are you going to do?"
Brzezinski protested that even if Kelly was getting a signal from the control room to cut off the interview, she shouldn't have done so.
"We don’t listen to them, right? We just stay on with an interview -- if we have a presidential candidate," she said. "Why was he cut off so terribly? That's rude. Who would listen to that when you have a good interview going on?"
"That was rude, that's not his fault," Brzezinski said at the suggestion the show needed to cut to commercial. "They're treating him terribly."
Romney returned to Fox News for another in-studio interview Thursday morning.
