  • Brian Williams, Don’t Say That About Your Network’s Coverage Of The Nice Attack

    07/15/2016 12:28:40 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 19 replies ^ | July 15, 2016 | Matt Vespa
    MSNBC’s Brian Williams is a master of saying the wrong thing at exactly the wrong time. I mean, in general, that point is evident since he lost the anchor’s desk at Nightly News and was suspended for six months for lying about his journalistic exploits. Now, we have him saying that he’s “plowing over” his network’s original programming to bring you the latest on the Nice attack (via Curtis Houck/ Newsbusters) [emphasis mine]:Brian Williams Tells Viewers in Nice Coverage He's ‘Plowed Over’ Chris Matthew’s ‘Hardball’ BRIAN WILLIAMS: This is Donald Trump on a phone interview from the last hour: “But I...
  • Chris Mathews: Rubio's Repetitive Debate Responses Were "Strange," "Not Human"

    Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” while discussing Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) performance at Saturday’s ABC News Republican presidential debate in which he repeated several times that President Barack Obama’s policies are no accident but instead he knows exactly what he is doing, MSNBC’s “Hardball” host Chris Matthews called it “strange” and said it was “not a human response.”

  • Chris Matthews Offers To Help Hillary’s 2016 Campaign: "We’ll Get You In There"

    02/26/2013 4:04:14 AM PST · by Biggirl · 7 replies ^ | February 26, 2013 | Noel Sheppard
    According to TV critic David Zurawik, MSNBC's hiring of ex-Obama officials David Axelrod and Robert Gibbs makes the so-callend news network almost "a bona fide organ of state propaganda." Hours after this was published Monday, Hardball's Chris Matthews offered his services to Hillary Clinton - along with those of MSNBC contributors Howard Fineman and Joan Walsh - in order to get her elected president in 2016 (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary).

    1. Improve body language, answering to Chris' question how Obama should react. (gay activist) Andrew Sullivan of the DailyBeast suggested to "look straight in the eye" of the rival like "I know you are lying..." 2. Chris: make Abortion, an issue, as it came out so clear when the VP candidacy debate detailed their answer. 3. Latino vote, talk about immigration. (Nia-Malika Henderson The Washington Post. National Political Reporter). 4. "Bill Power," the power of Bill Clinton now active in Obama's campaign.

  • Chris Mathews to Charlie Rose: Republicans see all non-Americans as evil

    10/07/2012 9:02:45 AM PDT · by Milagros · 47 replies
    Charlie Rose - Chris Matthews - Chris Matthews of NBC and MSNBC on the Presidential Debate, Oct. 4, 2012. There is no transcript available yet, but I saw/heard him telling Charlie along the lines that Obama's "advantage" over the Republicans (which he should make use of) is because Rep. view is that we Americans are right and everybody else is wrong... He did utter the words that Rep. believe that the (all the) 'other' (including Europeans) are evil. I hope I am forgiven for (even) watching Charlie Rose... But I like to be informed what the other side says... And...
  • Chris Matthews: If Bill Clinton landed on Mars, he’d know how to do it with them - ‘Scuse me?

    Last night Chris Matthews’ legendary leg thrill shifted from Barack Obama to Bill Clinton, and then rocketed out of this world: Chris Matthews, reacting to Bill Clinton’s convention speech last night, said, “I always figured that if Bill Clinton landed on Mars, he would know how to do it with them, he would know how to reproduce, he would know everything. He’d just instinctively know how to talk to people.” “I always figured”? As if Matthews has worked through this scenario on multiple previous occasions — possibly for a little adult sci-fi feature he’s plotted out in his head entitled...

    Chris Matthews was on Hardball tonight covering the Republican National Convention with guests Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post and John Hielemann of New York Magazine. In what is seemingly the natural progression of things these days with Matthews, the subject of the 'otherization' of the President was being discussed. Because, if you weren't aware already, Barack Obama is black, and any time a Republican chooses to discuss the failure that is his administration, the media will be there to quickly remind you that they only feel that way because of his skin color. But tonight's episode of race-baiting with...

    06/07/2011 3:58:29 AM PDT · by Biggirl · 23 replies ^ | June 7, 2011 | annem040359
    Now “Hardball” of MSNBC’s Chris Mathews, who cannot seem to get past of not admitting that USA House of Representative Anthony Weiner, (D/NY), is the ONE at fault for the posting of lewd photos online. Why is it that Mr. Mathews CANNOT ACCEPT THE FACT Rep. Weiner is the person in the WRONG for what he has done? WRONG is WRONG Mr. Mathews! It cannot be either explained or defended away! It is the "blind leading the blind." The REAL victim in all of this is Rep. Weiner’s wife. Even Republican Strategist John Feehery speaks out in defense of Mrs....

    I caught up with Chris Mathews and asked him what he thought about all the Tea Party gatherings on April 15th. Chris was leaving the main hall after hearing Jerry Brown Speak and on his way to the luncheon to hear Huffington's speech. Get a good look at Mathews wife when he answers the Tea Party question. Even she was shocked. LINK
  • Matthews: Bush, Hitler, Stalin—All ‘Aggressors’

    George Bush may be gone as president, but BDS is apparently forever. Deep in the throes of derangement, Chris Matthews this evening labelled America under George Bush an “aggressor” akin to the regimes of Hitler and Stalin. The Hardball host was David Shuster’s guest on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. It was Shuster’s playing of a clip of Pres. Obama talking about reclaiming the “moral high ground” on issues like torture that set Matthews off. CHRIS MATTHEWS: I grew up with the idea that we were the good guys all the time in foreign policy. Maybe that’s naive, but when we use...

    The host of MSNBC's nightly talk show, "Hardball," had to cancel his appearance yesterday at the Mon Valley YMCA due to a bout with pneumonia. But even a canceled appearance keeps alive the question of whether Chris Matthews plans to run in Pennsylvania for the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate and challenge Republican U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter in 2010. During his lunchtime address at the YMCA in Carroll, Washington County, U.S. Rep. John Murtha, D-Johnstown, offered only a vague hint about Mr. Matthews' intentions. He said Mr. Matthews has Type 2 diabetes, and he had hoped the Philadelphia-area native...

    I hope for one thing when people go to vote: that they look at Barack’s background, that they look at the age of the two candidates, that they look at their abilities and really open up their hearts and say “what’s really good for my kids,” who don’t have any color awareness. Kids don’t think about race. Think like your kids for once. Think the way they think. It would be great if the older people in the country, the 70 year olds, the 80 year olds who are suspicious of change to say, “you know, why don’t I think...

    What did Chamberlain do? What is appeasement? And what happened to John McCain's arms? One of the little election year mini-dramas making the Internet rounds is of MSNBC's Chris Matthews' insistent questioning of talk show host Kevin James over the issue of appeasement. "What did Chamberlain do?" Matthews asks his Hardball guest repeatedly. Mr. James was unable to answer with historical specifics. As it happens, I've met Mr. Matthews, spending an afternoon with him several years ago at his MSNBC office in the company of a friend who was interviewing him for a profile in the Financial Times. The article...
  • Parroting MoveOn, Matthews Accuses Bush of 'Betrayal'

    In the wake of the odious ad calling our commander in Iraq "General Betray Us," [read Dean Barnett's excellent take here] you might have thought the last thing a responsible member of the media would do would be to accuse other senior officials of "betrayal." I did say "responsible." On this afternoon's "Hardball," Chris Matthews accused President Bush of "betrayal" for his handling of Iraq. The "Hardball" host was fuming over Gen. Petraeus's reluctance to state whether the war in Iraq would make America safer. CHRIS MATTHEWS: He couldn't say whether what we're doing in Iraq makes America safer...

    Hard Ball with Ann Coulter as a guest is live today outside of the MSNBC Washington DC studio. Before the program went live Chris Mathews joked that perhaps they would draw a bigger crowd if we were beheading Ann Coulter. The crowd was silent as was Ann Coulter after his remark so he repeated it! Still crickets from the audience.

    SIMI VALLEY, Calif. - As Republican presidential contenders meet for their first debate on Thursday (live on MSNBC TV and at 8 p.m. ET), social conservatives, a powerful force within the GOP, face the possibility that the party will nominate a candidate next year who isn’t really one of them.

    Rocky Mountain News column ^ | Friday November 18th, 2005 | Mike Rosen
    I gave a talk recently on one of my favorite topics: liberal bias in the media. In the course of my remarks I referred to a quote made famous by Finley Peter Dunne's fictional alter ego, Mr. Dooley, a caricature of an Irishman from the old country who once sarcastically declared that the job of the newspaper is to "comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable." Dunne, himself, was a one-time Progressive who saw the light and became a Teddy Roosevelt Republican and a critic of sanctimonious do-gooders. Contemporary journalists may be unaware that the context of the Dunne quote...
