In early 2011, Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski was hawking her book, Knowing Your Value: Women, Money, And Getting What You're Worth, on CNBC when she revealed that at one point, her counterpart Joe Scarborough was making 14 times the amount she was.
Yes, you read that number right - FOURTEEN!

Women working full time in 2016 made 81 cents for each dollar made by a man... The gap is larger among college graduates, and “far larger in business, finance and legal careers than in science and technology jobs." The gap increases with age — and when women marry and begin having children.
For black & Hispanic women, the effects of the pay gap are even worse: https://t.co/H2vs0K28an #CloseTheGap https://t.co/1SvnU5Amlc— Neighbor2Neighbor-MA (@Neighbor2Neighbor-MA)1513861224.0
Catt Sadler Leaves E! News After Years of Receiving Half of Male Co-Host’s Pay https://t.co/ozD9sDUC9Z https://t.co/zohmRumZTc— Melissa Silverstein (@Melissa Silverstein)1513787829.0
[...] An executive from E brought something alarming to my attention -- namely, that there was a massive disparity in pay between my similarly situated male co-host and myself. More recently, when E reached out to renew and extend my deal, I learned that he wasn't just making a little more than I was.

Catt Sadler released a statement on her website explaining the reason behind her departure from E!. She revealed he… https://t.co/IggYsqAP6m— Pop Crave (@Pop Crave)1513794506.0
[...] how can I operate with integrity and stay on at E if they’re not willing to pay me the same as [my cohost]? Or at least come close? How can I accept an offer that shows they do not value my contributions and paralleled dedication all these years? How can I not echo the actions of my heroes and stand for what is right no matter what the cost? How can I remain silent when my rights under the law have been violated?
I’m actually so sad for Catt Sandler. Watching her last episode on E!News. The worst is that Jason is “sending” her off. Imagine.— Phiwomhle (@Phiwomhle)1513803079.0
Like that’s how disposable she was to the network. They were not even willing to pay her more compared to someone who just got there. Shame.— Phiwomhle (@Phiwomhle)1513803252.0
kinda think that Jason Kennedy should have fought for Cat Sadler + presented a united front after learning she was being greatly undermined— Amna (@AGlasgowGirl) December 20, 2017
dudes talking about the wage gap being a myth when the real facade is men being true allies when it matters— Amna (@AGlasgowGirl) December 20, 2017
If you don't use your unearned privilege or power to right wrongs then wtf are you doing?— Amna (@AGlasgowGirl) December 20, 2017
I grew up watching @enews so I'm weirdly really mad about this— Amna (@AGlasgowGirl) December 20, 2017
