Like the Beach Boys, Jeffrey Sachs gets around. As Director of The Earth Institute and Special Advisor to the United Nations Secretary-General, Professor Sachs ceaselessly travels the world in his fight against poverty. After returning from his latest trip overseas, the internationally renowned professor let Joe and Mika in on a little secret about their American news program.
“People love Morning Joe in sub-Saharan Africa, at the Vatican, and all over the world. It is unbelievable. I can be in any place in the world and I hear, “Hey I saw you last week on Morning Joe.” I heard it when I was in Ethiopia, when I was in Rwanda, and I’m just hearing it everywhere.
“I know we’re ironic around here a lot of times,” Joe joined in, “but we are shocked when we hear the same thing all the time.”
Dr. Sachs replied quickly, “No question. Absolutely. They’re watching it and they’re tweeting it out!”
That’s what you call worldwide reach. Maybe they should rename it “Morning Globe!”
