While not a direct comparison, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews invoked President Trump alongside murderous Iraqi dictator and executed war criminal Saddam Hussein, wondering to former Obama-era U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance if the President “has an escape route” concerning possible legal perils as a result of the Mueller probe.
On Tuesday, The Hollywood Reporter released an extensive poll on the news habits of consumers plus a poll of 51 cable and broadcast network news hosts and late-night comedy hosts. In the full blog, check out the seven areas that The Hollywood Reporter article on their own poll didn’t have quite the time to do a deep dive on.
Ah, so trying to keep up the fight to try and turn the tide in Georgia is okay, but to MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews on Tuesday, doing so in Florida makes you a “clown” and “Third World” “tin pot dictator” of a country where the losers are killed by hanging.
On Saturday afternoon, CNN Newsroom gave attention to a Johns Hopkins Hospital trauma surgeon who has been criticizing the NRA, but the liberal news network, even while interviewing him, did not divulge that he is a board member of the anti-gun Brady Campaign.
It’s been eight years since Barack Obama was elected. So, you may be forgiven forgetting just how effusive journalists were towards the Democrat on election night. On the November 5, 2008 Good Morning America (the day after), Bill Weir gushed over Obama’s election: “Last night was transcendent.... Voices from around the world shouted the greatness of America.”
A few segments before his unhinged rant suggesting prayer should be outlawed concerning tragedies like the California bar shooting and that gun rights don’t come from God, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews showed his disdain for the President and acting Attorney Matt Whitaker by screeching out of the blue at friendly panelists. This bizarre tangents came to a boil when he didn’t so much ask a question of The Washington Post’s Robert Costa as he did blurt out that Trump has “got steel [balls] to pulls this off” by firing Sessions and replacing him with Whitaker.
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews went on a ghoulish tear Thursday night responding to the Thousand Oaks, California bar shooting, bashing religion by telling Democratic Congresswoman Jackie Speier (CA) that “thoughts and prayers...should be outlawed” because it means that you don’t “give a damn” about the victims and that gun rights (as enshrined in the Constitution) do not come from God.
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews opened Wednesday’s show following the midterm elections and the firing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions on a tour de force, deeming Sessions’s axing “a lightning strike” by the President as he “struck out at his enemies,” including Special Counsel Robert Mueller because it “threatens Trump’s family, his presidency, and perhaps even his liberty.”
As the midterm elections approach, TV news hosts have abdicated their role as reporters to become partisan cheerleaders, inundating the airwaves with portrayals of Democratic candidates as lovable celebrities. The same media who relentlessly hammered Republicans with 88-percent negative midterm coverage have stubbornly refused to cover Democratic scandals, while praising their favorite candidates as “rock stars.”
While January 8 will mark eight years since a mentally ill gunman killed six and nearly murdered then-Congresswoman Gabby Giffords (D-AZ), there are still far too many who have tried to tie opposition to ObamaCare, our country’s discourse, and Republicans to that tragedy and Thursday’s Hardball shamefully did just that. Giffords’ husband Mark Kelly was along side and host Chris Matthews went even further by comparing America to the 1960s and how, according to him, our discourse led to the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy, brother Bobby Kennedy, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Imagine your worst expectations for MSNBC’s Hardball giving Democratic Texas Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke his own town hall Tuesday at the University of Houston. Sadly, whatever came to mind probably couldn’t match reality. All told, the hour-long event featured comparisons between O’Rourke and Bobby Kennedy, questions about supporting the liberal media, and even his sleep habits. And, most notably, there was nary a question or mention by host Chris Matthews or any of the audience members about O’Rourke’s drunk driving incident or recent news about his father’s financial dealings.
Reacting Wednesday night to the bombs sent to CNN and other Democrats, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews offered a bizarre take that invoked how next Wednesday is Halloween, blamed the President without evidence for being responsible for the bombs, and insinuated that he was akin to Adolf Hitler in the 1930s.
