Skip to comments.Leftist Talking Head Chris Matthews Shows His Own Bias, Admits Media Will Try To Destroy Sarah Palin

On his show on leftist network MSNBC recently, progressive media darling Chris Matthews, well known for the the thrill he felt going up his leg over one of President Obamas speeches, envisions a scenario where Sarah Palin wins the GOP nomination for president in 2012.
In the course of explaining his scenario, Matthews very nonchalantly states the media will try to destroy her of course, then continues without blinking as if the statement was utterly insignificant.
NewsBusters highlights the relevant paragraph from the video below (From the 1 minute mark):
CHRIS MATTHEWS: [Palin] maybe gets an early knockout. Thats how I see her winning. An early knockouts the way she can win. The media will try to destroy her of course, but if she goes early, wins early, I think she can win it before anyone can stop her.

Chris Matthews just slandered all of his colleagues in the media - AND NO-ONE NOTICED - because it has been the media’s purpose & practice for two years.
That is priceless!
CHRIS MATTHEWS: [Palin] ... The media will try to destroy her of course, but if she goes early, wins early, I think she can win it before anyone can stop her.
Ha. The “media”. What a putz. Cookie crumbs and koolaide stains all over his face and with a shivering leg he comments on the “media”.
Can we get those “ Russian” spies back here and re-load the plane with enemies of America? It would be fine if they take another lap or two around Manhattan on the way back home...
I agree with Joe - “Chris is right.” He’s just stating what everyone knows; the lib msm has PDS and will do everything they can to try and destroy her.
Funny, I view this as just the opposite. Chris Matthews saying ‘...the media will try to destroy Sarah Palin’ is just about the most accurate, unbiased thing he’s ever said. But my collection of Chris Matthews quotes is witheringly small since I pay him no attention at all.
The media may try, but I don't they'll succeed. For all the attacks that've been leveled against her the last couple of years, she's only gotten stronger, and I don't see them being able to say anything about her that hasn't been said already. They've shot their wad.
I don’t think the media will try to destroy her BEFORE she gets the nomination. They’ll want her to win in the nomination a)because of how much more money they’d make with her as the nominee than say a Romney or a Pawlenty or a Daniels and b)because they’ll see her as an easioer opponent for Obama
so I actually think they’d be very positive towards her during the primary and do all they could to make sure she wins. After that, watch out
More and more the voters know of mainstream media tricks and games. It is no longer working like a charm as before. Should get interesting.
Heh. Love the pic.
