MSNBC has signed Chris Matthews to a new, long-term contract with the channel, TVNewser has learned.
As part of the new deal, however, he will be ending “The Chris Matthews Show,” a syndicated public affairs show produced out of the NBC News DC bureau. The final edition of the program will air July 21. The half-hour show typically aired on Sunday mornings, though not every local market carried it. The show has been produced by NBC since 2002.
Matthews says he is ending the syndicated show to focus on “Hardball,” his books and his long-form TV docs.
“There are limits to what I can do in a week,” Matthews says in a statement. “Henceforth, I intend to concentrate any time left over from “Hardball” on writing books like the one I’m committed to now on the relationship between Tip O’Neill and Ronald Reagan, that and producing documentaries on history and politics.”
Stacy McCain lays into Crazy legs Matthews and his penchant for being RONGG!
You can call Chris Matthews anything you want — “dimwitted political hack” would be entirely appropriate — but please don’t insult an entire profession by calling Chris Matthews a “journalist.”
Very true. Matthews is a hack, and always has been. McCain explains Crazy Legs’ latest bout with News Speculation Syndrome
On March 30, Kaufman County, Texas, district attorney Mike McLelland and his wife were shot to death at their home. Five days later, Chris Matthews invited Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center onto MSNBC to promote speculation that McLelland’s murder was committed by the Aryan Brotherhood prison gang.
In other words, the important thing about this crime — the thing that made it worth eight minutes of national network air time — was that it gave Chris Matthews a chance to stoke the paranoia of MSNBC viewers with the bogeyman specter of dangerously violent racists who (as all MSNBC viewers know) are the core constituency of the Republican Party.
Of course, as is often the case, Matthews jumped to conclusions. In this case he wanted any excuse to bash Senator Ted Cruz and any other Republican to oppose Dear Leader’s Leftist agenda. And, again, Matthews got it completely WRONG!
Fast-forward 11 days, and Chris Matthews is completely discredited by the latest headlines:
- KTVT: Sources: JP Eric Williams To Be Charged With Murders In Kaufman County
- Dallas Morning News: Ex-justice of peace is prime suspect in Kaufman DA slayings
- Dallas Morning News: Complex picture arises of ex-Kaufman justice of peace eyed in case
- London Daily Mail: Mystery Texas killings ‘solved’: Disgraced court official to be charged with murders of Texas district attorney, his wife and assistant DA after they convicted him of theft
- Pat Dollard: Update: Disgraced Government Official, Not Aryan Brotherhood, Killed Texas Prosecutors
What? It wasn’t scary white supremacists highlighted in an eight-minute MSNBC segment? Nobody that Mark Potok warned us about? Not even a Tea Party member? No, a disgraced lawyer with a personal grudge:
And of course, now that the truth is out, Matthews will not man up and correct his fantasy will he? Hell no! Like many leftists, Matthews makes wild accusations to smear people he disagrees with, and when he is proven wrong? He just moves on to the next smear. That is what is most fascinating about Leftist walk behinders like Obamagasm Boy Matthews. The thought never occurs to them that if they must resort to lying to win an argument, then they are on the wrong side of life. Maybe it would be more fitting to say that Matthews is on the wrong side of reality.
Speaking of being on the wrong side of reality. Look at the screen cap Stacy got of Crazy legs and Potok The guy honestly looks like the guy who gets cut off at noon at your local dive bar, you know the guy, he will buy you a drink the “next time” if you get him one today. He is also the douche nozzle who demands the bartender pour him a “good shot”, when he never ever tips.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews said Friday that the National Rifle Association wants “guns on demand, like you’re buying a Hershey bar.”
“That’s the way they want to do it, guns on demand, like you’re buying a Hershey bar. That’s it. It’s a Hershey bar. I think I’d like one. I’m going to try that. You know, no background check? What are you, crazy? Okay, that’s the hideous argument they make, check out the guy that’s going to guard the kids, but don’t check out the guy who’s buying the gun to go after the kids,” Matthews said referring to the NRA.
Is this buffoon actually saying the NRA does not want checks on people buying guns to shoot up schools? Good grief he will say anything. Matthews stopped being anything remotely resembling a a journalist long ago. He is now nothing more than a deranged second-rate shock jock.
Actually Chris, it was the NRA that got background checks in place to begin with. You Cannot buy a gun from a gun dealer without undergoing a background check. Very few people who fail those checks ever get prosecuted, which the NRA points out often.
Matthews is nothing more than THAT drunk asshole at the end of the bar now. You know the guy. Sloppy drunk, mumbling incoherently, and asking everyone to buy him a shot. Except Matthews is not even drunk on the air. He does not find his inner asshole in a bottle. Matthews comes by his naturally.
Someone should buy this tool a dictionary, or maybe better yet someone could read the definition of racism to him
RUSH LIMBAUGH: That’s an interesting take that the President inspires it, inspires racism. It may well be the case. So Obama’s presence inspires this guy to go all divisive, all racist and start jamming on the Republicans for wanting blacks in the back of the bus and women back in the kitchen when he can’t name a single person who does. But the President of the United States, you may be right, may have inspired that in this preacher.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
MATTHEWS: Well actually, Rushbo, racism is the belief that one race – whites – should rule all others. Get your definitions straight.
OK Matthews, here you go. From Dictionary.com
1.a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving theidea that one’s own race is superior and has the right to rule others.2.a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine discrimination.
3.hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.
Seriously how? All this buffoon does is babble incoherently
MSNBC host Chris Matthews and two guests on Wednesday investigated what they identified as strains of homophobia, xenophobia, and racism within the tea party. One of the guests was a filmmaker who is investigating the phenomenon of African-American conservatives who sympathize with the tea party. Matthews was vexed by the existence of black conservatives. He expressed surprise that African-Americans, who were dependent on the federal government for civil rights legislation, would support an ideology that backs state’s rights.
Matthews opened the segment congratulating MSNBC for their efforts at trying to show “the real face of the tea party” which he said was characterized by racial rhetoric and outright racist imagery.
“My study suggests that there is a strain of racism in the tea party,” said University of Washington assistant professor Christopher Parker. “There’s definitely a racist strain, but it goes beyond racism. It goes to homophobia and xenophobia as well, Chris.”
Matthews asked if tea partiers longed for a “dreamy nostalgia” of a time when there were “no gays, where blacks were slaves, where Mexicans were in Mexico.”
Good Freaking Grief!
….it would be Crazy legs Matthews and the rest of the gang of ass hats at MSNBS. They are the ones constantly throwing accusations of racism around, trying to demonize Conservatives. They just can’t help it I guess. People often accuse others of what they themselves are guilty of. Read what Matthews says about Sen. Ted Cruz and tell me he is not deflecting.
CHRIS MATTHEWS: Lindsey Graham, and so was John McCain, not on this program but this week. It’s about tactics. Let’s take it back. I don’t know the man’s personality. I know he’s got an interesting background, he’s a brilliant gay in many ways, but the tactics. You know, I watched him in those hearings and I saw Joe McCarthy, I saw the way he was prosecuting the case, the way he was putting up evidence, innuendo, guilt by association. If some spokesperson, some flack for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Tehran, says he thinks we can do business with this guy more than some hawkish neo-con, is that indictment against him? But it turned into an indictment. I think it’s really being unfair and I think the Senate is going to circle the wagons and say this guy’s going in.
Maybe we should start calling him Chris “McCarthy” Matthews?
That is, after all, what PC is all about, it is also about thought control, intimidation, speech control, censorship, and creating an environment where the Left cannot be challenged. Stacy McCain elaborates
Yesterday, I saw Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s Hardball rant for 10 minutes about Sen. Ted Cruz as a latter-day Joe McCarthy for having dared to ask questions about possible ties between Hagel and foreign governments. Chuck Hagel isn’t just some random citizen who has been grabbed off the street for interrogation about his loyalties.
No, Chuck Hagel is under consideration as Secretary of Defense, and the Senate therefore has every right — indeed, it has a solemn duty — to investigate his associations with groups that seem rather secretive about their funding.
If I could give the biggest reason I started writing op-ed columns 17 years ago, and then created this venture with Ed Daley, I would say it was to stop the erosion of our liberty! PC is the number one source of that erosion, and I will be damned if I sit by and allow that to happen!
Why did I not watch the coronation yesterday? Because Monday was only the beginning of the ass kissing the media is going to engage in for Dear Leader. I fear it will get so bad the FCC might deem the media coverage unfit for anything except pay-per-view.
Others who chronicled the event now have stains on their pants from the orgasmic gush. Chris Matthews emitted his usual effusion of idiocy, and over on the Third-Place Cable News Network With Lower Ratings Than MSNBC (The One That People Only Watch When They’re Stuck in Airports), Jim Acosta was trying to out-gush Matthews:
“You know, I feel like I should pinch myself right now, Wolf. I can’t believe I have this vantage point of history in the making . . . It’s good to be the President. It’s almost like being a rock star on every street corner of Washington on this day.”
Our nation is being destroyed, and the press corps is reduced to the role of partisan pom-pom girls for The Great Destroyer. Meanwhile, the alleged leaders of the opposition have no clue of how to rescue themselves from their current condition of helpless impotence. The search for any reason to smile amid this catastrophe — which I blame entirely on the gross ineptitude of the overpaid dimwit fratboys running the Republican Party — turns up precious few nuggets of encouragement:
All I can say is SIGH!
The former Republican Congressman sneered at the National Rifle Association, suggesting that the gun group is promoting the “big lie” that government will come after most guns.
Scarborough insisted the “the big lie has worked for years.” He added, “…If they take away your military-style assault weapons, take away the AR-15, they’re going to take your hunting rifle, they’re gonna take your handgun, which of course is a big lie.”
It’s like this, you schmuck: while the destruction of liberty continues ‘at a medium pace’, no rational observers doubt that this is what is going on. Scarborough, your Neville Chamberlain-esque reassurances excite no one, with the possible exception of Chris Matthews.
Scarborough is a fraud, he sounds different far different from the mid 1990′s when he serve in the House. Now, he is simply a “Republican” in permanent token status at MSNBS. He is gutless.
Rush makes some great points, I was not impressed with Obama or his “mojo”. As I posted earlier, sure Obama was more animated, but on what really matters, substance, Obama is still an empty suit. Audio via I’m 41
As a side note, while Rush, and I saw the same debate, Chris Matthews was watching from the lunacy of his alternate reality
During his show on Wednesday, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews critiqued the debate performances of President Barack Obama and his GOP rival Mitt Romney. While the host thought the president won the debate decisively, he couldn’t believe that Romney could “look down” on the president, who according to his guest, actor James Lipton, became a “hero” during the debate.
“It was the face off in ‘High Noon.’ And the President of the United States was Gary Cooper.” Lipton said. “At that moment, he became a hero, I think”
Lipton referred to Obama as a president and Romney as a “boss,” saying that “job creator is a euphemism for profit creator.”
Matthews later played a clip of the memorable exchange between Romney and Obama over permits for energy exploration on federal land, which are down over the last four years. As Obama attempted to interrupt Romney, he told the president “you’ll get your chance” to talk.
“I don’t think he understands the Constitution of the United States…He’s the President of the United States. You don’t say, ‘you’ll get your chance,’” Matthews said.
Oh good grief! The Constitution, apparently says somewhere that you cannot talk to the president in a “rude” manner. Actually, it says the exact opposite! How does this boob stay on TV? Oh wait, that is right, he is not on TV, he is on MSNBS.
Ah, yes! The Daley Douchebag Award is not given out that often here, but Crazy Legs Matthews just earned himself one
…a day after MSNBC Hardball host Chris Matthews said for the umpteenth time that no one will sell senior citizens health insurance, AARP ran ad on his show promoting – wait for it! – Medicare Supplement Insurance
As NewsBusters reported Thursday, Matthews is regularly making the completely false claim that no one will sell health insurance to seniors.
Quite the contrary, Medicare Supplement Insurance – or what is also referred to as Medigap Insurance – is a booming business in America with currently almost 10 million policy holders.
As such, Matthews is either ignorant of this incontrovertible fact, or is lying to his viewers.
Matthews defines Raving Moonbat doesn’t he? He knows he lies about this issue, Hell, he lies about most everything on his show
That the woman who yelled out “Obama’s a Communist” during Hardball with Chris Matthews is a plant? Now she might not be, but, her answers and statements make her look like the walking definition of what Chris Matthews thinks of Conservatives. She just seems to be playing the role of Matthews definition of Conservative. Would MSNBS stoop that low? Would Matthews? Do you really have to ask that question? Watch the video, see for yourself, see what you think
The number Castro cites is an accurate description of the growth of private-sector jobs since January 2010, when the long, steep slide in employment finally hit bottom. But while a total of 4.5 million jobs sounds great, it’s not the whole picture.
Nonfarm private payrolls hit a post-recession low of 106.8 million that month, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The figure currently stands at 111.3 million as of July.
While that is indeed a gain of 4.5 million, it’s only a net gain of 300,000 over the course of the Obama administration to date. The private jobs figure stood at 111 million in January 2009, the month Obama took office.
And total nonfarm payrolls, including government workers, are down from 133.6 million workers at the beginning of 2009 to 133.2 million in July 2012. There’s been a net loss of nearly 1 million public-sector jobs since Obama took office, despite a surge in temporary hiring for the 2010 census.
Even the media is catching Dems at their lying games. But, of course, what I said is likely a “dog whistle” or code according to Utah at Rio Norte
In other news, Chris Matthews of MSNBC says that the number 300,000 is a “dog whistle” code word and should now be considered racist when uttered by a Republican.
See, told ya!
…then drive to Crazy Town, take a left turn, past Insaneviile, and keep going until you plunge off Wacko Cliff into the bottomless Sea of Racial Obsession Syndrome. Then you will be where Chris Matthews diseased brain is
What a ludicrous standard! Matthews, how is it possible to speak to the ‘whole’ country? With ‘whole’ for a quantifier, it only takes one to require another pass. Pass, ‘whole’.
Minutes after Paul Ryan finished his RNC speech on Wednesday, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews slammed the Republican vice presidential candidate for supposedly ignoring blacks during his “very constricted, very negative, very nasty speech,” and suggested that he was directing the address to racists: “It’s clear that Paul Ryan was talking to people who think about rights as something…produced by Thomas Jefferson, ignoring the people for whom the rights only came in the 1960s.”
Wow! This guy is redefining unhinged on a daily basis. I expect that soon we will see Matthews, in a straighjacket doing his show from a dark cellar and chanting that Chicago is a RAAAAACIST word!
Matthews then demonstrates his mind-numbing ability to take an idiotic statement, amplify it, and subsequently make it exponentially more idiotic coming from his mouth, when he said this:
“Yea, well let me ask you about that gentleman. What about now, is this constant barrage of assaults, saying the guy is basically playing an old game of demagoguery politics, where you take the money from the worker bees and give it to the poor people to buy votes. That’s basically what they’re charging him with. Old big-style, big-city machine of 50 years ago.”
He added, “They keep saying Chicago by the way, have you noticed? They keep saying Chicago. That’s another thing that sends that message – this guy’s helping the poor people in the bad neighborhoods, screwing us in the ‘burbs.”
Hielemann helpfully interpreted Matthews statement, presumably for those too challenged to understand basic words (or as we in the business refer to them – Hardball viewers), by making this jaw-dropping statement:
“There’s a lot of black people in Chicago.”
Maybe MSNBS can replace Matthews, and any guests with Eric Cartman of South Park
Good Gief! And I might remind Matthews that it is HIS network that refused to carry many speeches by Black Republicans like Mia Love.
In lieu of airing speeches from former Democratic Rep. Artur Davis, a black American; Mia Love, a black candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives from Utah; and Texas senatorial hopeful Ted Cruz, a Latino American, MSNBC opted to show commentary anchored by Rachel Maddow from Rev. Al Sharpton, Ed Schultz, Chris Matthews, Chris Hayes and Steve Schmidt.
Throughout this convention, Matthews has accused the Republicans of playing dog-whistle racist politics while on scene in Tampa. It isn’t clear, however, if Matthews will hurl accusations of racism at Davis, Love or Cruz for speeches his network failed to broadcast.
All of this begs the question. Was Chris Matthews crazy before his legs had their first Obamagasm? Or did all those Obamagasms make him nuttier than a truckload of fruitcakes?
Jill wants to know if maybe watching Hardball is like smoking pot?
The same thing might apply to chronic Chris Matthews viewers. How else to account for his having any audience at all, however miniscule? I watched the two clips that are going around (here andhere) and almost felt sorry for this pathetic man who has been given a microphone for no apparent reasons other than his penchant for talking rudely over his guests and his rabid liberalism. Stacy McCain on that:
In case you didn’t realize it, the only claim Matthews has to being a journalist is that he is a partisan Democrat. Matthews never worked a day as a reporter, never covered a city council meeting or a homecoming parade. After evading the Vietnam-era military draft by enrolling in the Peace Corps, Matthews moved to Washington and worked on the staff of various congressional Democrats before unsuccessfully running for Congress as a Democrat, later joining the White House staff as a speechwriter for Democrat Jimmy Carter, then spending the Reagan years as a top aide to Democrat House Speaker Tip O’Neill. Somehow, this ultra-political background as a partisan operative qualified Matthews for the job of Washington bureau chief for the San Francisco Chronicle. Such is the biography of the man who has been employed for the past 15 years as a “journalist” by NBC, hosting his own show on the network’s little-watched MSNBC cable franchise while appearing regularly on the broadcast network during coverage of major political events.
Matthews is a punch line to a bad joke, as is his network. He has an opinion show, I get that, so objectivity is not something I expect from him. But he is so intellectually dishonest, and vacuous that people only watch because they are as demented as Matthews and actually believe his race baiting rants, or to laugh as they watch the train wreck that IS Hardball. Every night Matthews, and the rest of the hosts on MSNBS haul in some intellectually bankrupt Leftist windbag to explore some left-wing fantasy or another. Usually, it is to try to paint the GOP as RAAAAACIST, and sexist, and backwards, and blah, blah, blah. And they never fail to delve deeper into absurdity each day.
That is the only reason to watch, unless you are some reality-deprived Leftist tool of course. I call MSNBS the Tree of Low-Hanging Blogging Fruit because you can find material there in almost endless supply. And, as the campaign draws towards November, they are just going to become more unhinged
His little brother, AKA Chris Matthews, and Chris’ Obamagasming Legs!
In an appearance on MSNBC’s “Hardball” on Monday from the Republican National Convention, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich took on host Chris Matthews, who accused the Republican Party of playing the “race card” throughout the day on MSNBC.
Gingrich turned the tables on Matthews, asking: “Why do you assume ‘food stamp’ refers to black? What kind of racist thinking do you have? Why are you being a racist, because you assume he’s referring to black?”
In a testy exchange, Matthews asked Gingrich why his party was using what he deemed coded racist dog whistles.
“I find your assumption so absurd that it’s hard to answer your question,” Gingrich responded. “Let me take the birther thing for a second — what Mitt Romney did the other day, people say, ‘You ought to relax, you ought to be a little bit lighter’. So he tells a joke. Now, it tends to be a joke that serves him in a totally different way that you’re calculating. It reminds everybody in Michigan that he was born in Michigan.”
But Matthews wouldn’t back down from his premise.
“You know, it’s amazing how — you know how African-Americans generally, at least people who have emailed me in the last couple of hours, how they react to this?” Matthews said. “Do you understand they have a reaction? They think this is racial talk. That this whole thing about welfare cheats is relentless stuff.”
An intellectual beating of epic proportions
Is this the best they can do, Chris Matthews and his ilk? They are really going with Mitt is weird?
CHRIS MATTHEWS, HOST: Let’s go into the code, the intangibles again about Romney. He has come off in the early part of this campaign as a bit odd in different ways. His sense of humor is definitely somewhere out there for most people. Politico, your organization, has written in the past that there’s a sense of him being weird, and that can be played upon and may tangentially catch on to his religion as well as part of the weirdness about the guy. He comes from a different background from us, from other people. How do you think it’s going to play, John Harris?
JOHN HARRIS, POLITICO: I don’t think Romney is weird, but he has lived a life that is removed from the experiences and the sort of outlook of many Americans. It’s been removed because of his wealth, because of his career orientation, but also because of his religion.
MATTHEWS: Well, for example, let me give you an example of weird. When you think it’s a funny joke that somebody has grabbed your tush from behind and you go jumping out as if somebody’s done that. Is that humor that strikes you as like 70 years old?
Go read the rest, it is pathetic! Of course, if they were a real news source they would be reporting on something important, like this
Every single state that elected a Republican governor in 2010 saw their unemployment rate drop.
FOX Nation reported:
In 2010, influenced by the Tea Party and its focus on fiscal issues, 17 states elected Republican governors. And, according to an Examiner.com analysis, every one of those states saw a drop in their unemployment rates since January of 2011. Furthermore, the average drop in the unemployment rate in these states was 1.35%, compared to the national decline of .9%, which means, according to the analysis, that the job market in these Republican states is improving 50% faster than the national rate.
Since January of 2011, here is how much the unemployment rate declined in each of the 17 states that elected Republican governors in 2010, according to the Examiner:
Kansas – 6.9% to 6.1% = a decline of 0.8%
Maine – 8.0% to 7.4% = a decline of 0.6%
Michigan – 10.9% to 8.5% = a decline of 2.4%
New Mexico – 7.7% to 6.7% = a decline of 1.0%
Oklahoma – 6.2% to 4.8% = a decline of 1.4%
Pennsylvania – 8.0% to 7.4% = a decline of 0.6%
Tennessee – 9.5% to 7.9% = a decline of 1.6%
Wisconsin – 7.7% to 6.8% = a decline of 0.9%
Wyoming – 6.3% to 5.2% = a decline of 1.1%
Alabama – 9.3% to 7.4% = a decline of 1.9%
Georgia – 10.1% to 8.9% = a decline of 1.2%
South Carolina – 10.6% to 9.1% = a decline of 1.5%
South Dakota – 5.0% to 4.3% = a decline of 0.7%
Florida – 10.9% to 8.6% = a decline of 2.3%
Nevada – 13.8% to 11.6% = a decline of 2.2%
Iowa – 6.1% to 5.1% = a decline of 1.0%
Ohio – 9.0% to 7.3% = a decline of 1.7%
Hmmm, think that might be more than a coincidence? No wonder the walk behinders and brown-nosers at MSNBS are willing to report ANYTHING, except the economy of course
Chris Matthews is a lunatic, seriously. He says he doubts the SCOTUS would rule against segregation
Then you have Lawrence O’Donnell claiming that the individual mandate in Obamacare does not exist. Egads!
Newsbusters has the details
Eight days after making a fool of himself on Jeopardy!, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews was back to impugning the intellectual capacity of Sarah Palin.
After playing a clip of the former Alaska governor discussing why she wanted John McCain to focus on Barack Obama’s connection to the America-hating Reverend Jeremiah Wright in the 2008 campaign, Matthews mocked Tuesday, “I think her briefing papers have the weight of a comic book” (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
Please, I think we all know that Palin is smarter than Crazy Legs any day. And I think we can agree that Matthews new theme song should be
