Skip to comments.Liberal women's advocate: MSNBC's Chris Matthews a sexist bully
Posted on 02/02/2011 6:28:57 AM PST by FredJake
While speaking with Fox News host Megyn Kelly, Jehmu Green, former president of the Womens Media Center called Chris Matthews "a bully" who's "favorite target is women."
For some time, Chris Matthews, the host of MSNBC's Hardball, has targeted Minnesota Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann with taunts and insults, calling her a "balloon head" and comparing her to a hypnotized zombie.
While interviewing her on her re-election victory in November, Matthews attempted to play "gotcha" with Bachmann:
Rep. Michele Bachmann went on MSNBC for an interview with Chris Matthews tonight and handled him with dismissive tone the hack deserved. All he wanted to do was bait her with unprofessional journolisty questions about whether or not the new Congressional majority would investigate Democrats for un-American activities.
When Kelly asked if Matthews' attacks were sexist or just impolite, Green said Matthews "crosses the line" with attacks that "go over the top."
Noel Sheppard of Newsbusters notes that Green is no conservative icon, having served as "an advisor to the Hillary Clinton for President campaign as well as serving in various functions for the Democratic National Committee."
The Media Women's Center was founded by Jane Fonda, Robin Morgan and Gloria Steinem - hardly Tea Party activists - in 2005.
Sheppard writes that Green should be someone Matthews would listen to, but Matthews continued his jihad against Bachmann some time later by suggesting the Congresswoman probably could not pass a literacy test:
CHRIS MATTHEWS: When we return -- when I return -- "Let Me Finish" with a history lesson for Michele Bachmann.Youre watching HARDBALL -- she could use one here, she ought to be lucky we still dont have literacy tests out there. Youre watching HARDBALL, only on MSNBC.
But Matthews seems to have forgotten - conveniently - some of his own history, ...

Not necessarily anymore, with Comcast taking over. They might clean house, especially if MSNBC starts tanking even more due to boycotts.
Chris Matthews needs to be retired. He’s an arrogant bully.
Does anyone remember what I’m sure was Michelle Malkin’s last appearance on “Hardball” about four years ago or so. He just screamed accusations at her with question marks on the end and didn’t give her a bit of opportunity to respond. He literally kept cutting her off before she got a single sentence out of her mouth. It was very insulting, way beyond just partisan questioning. Like most of the MSNBC lineup, the dude has serous issues.
Matthews has a big problem with women. I remember when he attacked Michelle Malkin. Matthews is a sexist who hates women.
Yeah, agree. I have a hunch, that as poor as MSNBC’s ratings are, they would be much worse if we conservatives (including myself)would refrain from tuning in from time to time. I have to confess that I watch portions of Hardball every now and then just out of morbid curiosity to see what the crazy looney tunes on the left are up to. But, I'm gonna stop, right now.
The Senator told chrissy girl that he was lucky that dueling was illegal but if he ever saw chrissy he'd kick his ass.
The Senator is retired but was a man of honor.
Crazy Chris picks up the baton from Krazy Keith!
Maybe he can retire after we toss his Brother out of Montgomery County PA politics. They could make it a family thing.
Shhh... it is ok and acceptable for liberals to treat women disrespectfully. NOW even approves of it.
The Senator was Zell Miller from Georgia.
Matthews is a fag.
Guess it's like a World War II German standing with a Jew... we'll get a short term gain, then the MSM will turn against the woman...
And Chris Matthews? He'll go on being a bully. Same with MSNBC...
I think he loves women just can’t get any good looking ones. Libby women are look lackers, even the men are better looking, that is why O gives Chrissy that tingle. I remember one time he had Donna Rice on and he just came out and said “how attractive she was.” It came out of no where and was very strange. She probably was thinking, how do I respond to this one. Sorry Chrissy, don’t even thing a paper bag will help you score.
MM was on goofball in 2004 to discuss Swiftboats.
True. He is terribly threatened by attractive, intelligent women, ie conservative women.
But he does have a huge man crush on you-know-who.
Sometimes, the dots just connect themselves.
Ummmmm Excuse Me Good Sir!!!!!!!! He was a peace corps member. That trumps everything.
You mean we haven't already done so?
