Skip to comments.Leering Chris Matthews Asks Female CNBC Anchor to Move in Closer to Camera
Posted on 08/12/2007 6:54:44 AM PDT by PJ-Comix
Apparently Hardball host Chris Matthews has a bit of a problem keeping his lust in check on the air. On Friday evening's Hardball, Matthews was interviewing CNBC's Street Signs anchor, Erin Burnett, about the latest Wall Street news when suddenly he switched gears as you can see in this video. The official transcript isn't up yet on the MSNBC website but here is a transcription of the conversation as best I could understand it:
MATTHEWS: Could you get a little closer to the camera?
BURNETT: What is it? Is it (garbled) in strangely?
MATTHEWS: Come in closer...no...come in...come in further...come in closer...really close.
(Burnett leans towards camera.)
BURNETT: What are you, what are you doing?
MATTHEWS: Haw! Haw! Just kidding! You look great! Anyway, thank... Erin it's great to have...look at that look... You're great...
BURNETT: I don't even know. I'm going to have to go look at the tape here. I'm in a strange location.
MATTHEWS (laughing): No, you're beautiful! I'm just kidding! I'm just kidding! You're a knockout! Anyways thank you, Erin Burnett. It's alright getting bad news from you even. Okay. Thanks for coming on Hardball.
Chris, I know it was Friday night and Erin Burnett is indeed a knockout. However, perhaps you could be a little more subtle about your attraction for Erin. After all, among the few dozen of your Hardball viewers, Mrs. Matthews could have been watching your leering performance.
IB4 “I’d hit it”!
(I can't see videos where I'm at)
Well, with a brilliant subtlety such as that, he must have no problem cruising for the babes.
Isn’t he Tip O’Neil’s love child?
Hey! Us slobbering old fools need love too, ya know! If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh?
That was a very strange video. She looked confused and kinda stunned by the situation. Chris should not have done that.
Yes, I did a search and Erin Burnett is pretty good looking. Still, to say all that on the air....
Damn right! And we haven’t lost our ability to oogle!
Oh, come now. You know it is okay for liberals to engage in this type of behavior.
They all “mean well” and their “hearts are in the right place”.
They couldn’t ever be demeaning towards women or minorities. Tsk Tsk. I am very dissapointed in you.
He did that a few weeks ago with another woman, the drooling fool.
It was a gal who made a campaign video, can’t remember which candidate. He was just digusting.
He is going to be 62 this year. Although I am 30 years younger I hope I look that “bad” at 62. He is a lot of things, but old looking is not one of them.
Tickles and pricks...I think Chrissy is in enough trouble as it is, don’t you?
Progressive men, on the other hand, revel in the sexual revolution, and find nothing wrong with putting the moves on anything that moves. Hey, Baby, it's a compliment!
And, really, the whole sexual revolution was about the freedom to treat all women like whores. This is the world the feminists have given us.
chris should have asked erin burnett to unbutton another button....
cleveage....after all....chrissey was drooling over the piap’s lowcut mansiere!!

I just watched “Softball” or whatever it’s called the other day and he looks like he’s lost weight (not in a good way—like a cancer patient) and is wan and sickly looking. Or it could just be my old Panasonic, I suppose...
