Where I'm Clicking Now: Chris Matthews Foot-in-Mouth Watch

Where I'm Clicking Now: Chris Matthews Foot-in-Mouth Watch

As my love/hate relationship with political MSNBC host Chris Matthews continues, Media Matters has chronicled the downs of our up-and-down affair. Media Matters, an online nonprofit, monitors and analyzes misinformation in the US media. Repeat offender Chris Matthews has his very own page. Some of the recent highlights:

  • On April 25: Sen. Barack Obama "can't walk into a dinette [sic] with five or six guys there, white guys, in some cases. He can't just shake hands and hang out."
  • On April 22: One of the grandees of the party would say "we need some ethnic balance. He's got that interesting, sort of Middle Eastern Hussein in his name. Let's put a Jewish running mate with this guy."
  • On March 31: Regarding Obama's bowling form, "it isn't the most macho form there, I must say, but who knows?"

There are many, many more. Go check it out! Do you think TV hosts impact the political system when they make irresponsible comments, or can the public see through distasteful remarks?

The big problem is that some folks can't see much difference between a news anchor who is just reading the actual news, and an analyst who is just spouting his own opinion about that news. Chris Matthews continues to go downhill, displaying his prejudices more and more. A lazy viewer, and we all are from time to time, accepts some of the garbage these commentators throw out.

I agree! There is a little spark in his eye that I find endearing, but most of the time I can't really take what he says all that seriously. I just like his fiesty side!

Chris Matthews is an old coot. we all know one. to me, he's just so ridiculous it's funny. I think other old coots identify with him, but they would be like that anyway, so I'm not worried about him influencing America in a bad way.

agreed. but still, who can't love a Chris Matthews crazywatch? During the recent batch of great journalism examining whether Obama's breakfast choices prove that he's elitest, CM went off on the fact that he ordered orange juice. It showed he wasn't a diner guy. Really? Really, Chris Matthews? That's what the level of political analysis has fallen to in our country?
