Mike Barnicle on the legacy of newspaper columnist Jimmy Breslin

Live from Newton, Mass., Morning Joe’s Mike Barnicle talks with host Mika Brzezinski about the legacy of legendary New York City newspaper columnist Jimmy Breslin, who died Friday at age 88. “He was a columnist for the ages,” says Barnicle, a veteran newspaper columnist. "There was never one like him before, and there will never be another one like him again, and that’s not really hyperbole. What Jimmy Breslin did for American newspapers was miraculous. It was like reading a fine novel in about 900 words. The electricity of the thought. His reporting was remarkable and his writing skill was incredible.” Listen in for much more from Barnicle on Breslin: “A man of many emotions….He was what life is all about: A huge roller coaster of emotions."
