    In December, the Daily Caller reported on the “verbally abusive” environment that Chris Matthews has created on the Hardball set, adding that people “felt like they had to ‘walk on eggshells’ around their ‘abusive’ boss.” Matthews flashed that thin skin on this evening’s Hardball. When guest David Corn politely pointed out that the TV series in question was “Homeland,” not “Homefront” as Matthews had said, Matthews snapped: “You going to keep correcting me?” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Full title: Matthews on GOP Attacks on Pelosi: GOP Likes Attacking Coastal People Who Are ‘Usually Ethnic’ – It’s ‘Ethnic Politics’ While discussing Republican attacks on House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” host Chris Matthews referred to attacks on Pelosi as “ethnic politics” and stated that attacking people from the coasts who are “usually ethnic” is an old tactic by Republicans. Matthews said, “Picking on somebody from one of the coasts, usually ethnic, and making them the poster person of the Democratic Party is old business for the Republicans. They did it with —...

    On July 14, 2003, a Robert Novak column in The Washington Post outed the CIA-agent wife of vociferous Bush administration critic, Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson. Thus was born the "Plame Affair" which quickly became a morality tale of how an out of control Bush Administration would do anything to justify its war in Iraq. A mere three days later, journalist David Corn, summarized the allegations that would color reporting on the Iraq War for the next three years and eventually lead to the indictment of a top aide to the vice president for lying to a grand jury: ((((THE OLD...

    Chris Matthews has taken Trump-hatred to a new level. On his MSNBC show this evening, Matthews analogized Trump to someone . . . who was charged with murder. Said Matthews: “Remember George Zimmerman, the stand-your-ground guy from Florida, who pulled a gun and killed somebody, in self-defense he said cause he had the right to fight anybody who approached him? And I get, that’s what the president here is doing.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Left wingers in Congress and the media are in full blown panic mode and right this minute are stomping their feet over the removal of Andrew McCabe from his position at the FBI. Both Carl Bernstein and Chris Matthews are characterizing it as a "Saturday Night Massacre." That signals their game plan for the coming disaster they are soon to have on their hands. Nancy Pelosi is close to being aphasic. Jake Tapper has abandoned all his journalistic cred in favor of editorializing: “Leading the Russia investigation could be hazardous to your career,” Tapper said at the top of the hour....

    Appearing on this evening’s Hardball, Rep. Karen Bass, a Democrat and leader of the Congressional Black Caucus, twice accused Republican Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue of “flat-out lying” by saying that they didn’t hear President Trump refer to various countries as “s—holes.” Bass then took things an ugly step further, insinuating that President Trump might have bribed the two senators in some way. Said Bass: “I think that they’re flat-out lying. And maybe they’re getting something from the President for it.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, host of “Hardball,” was conspicuously absent from a scheduled “Meet The Press” appearance on Sunday morning. Matthews announced the scheduled appearance on a pre-taped episode of “Hardball” on Friday, and it was noted in the Friday edition of POLITICO’s Playbook. Matthews may have chosen to sit out the appearance because of a 2016 video uncovered by New York Magazine’s The Cut late Friday, which showed him joking about drugging and raping then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. “This was a terrible comment I made in poor taste during the height of the Bill Cosby headlines,” Matthews told The Cut....

    "Where’s that Bill Cosby pill I brought with me?" he said in leaked audio published by 'New York' magazine. MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews has apologized for making an inappropriate joke about Bill Cosby before an interview with then-candidate Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail in January 2016. "Can I have some of the queen's waters? Precious waters?" Matthews is heard and shown saying in a clip obtained and published by New York magazine's The Cut on Friday. In the clip, Matthews then asks: "Where’s that Bill Cosby pill I brought with me?" (His crew looks visibly uncomfortable, and a man...

    On January 5, 2016, MSNBC Hardball host Chris Matthews interviewed Hillary Clinton in an Iowa fire station during the Democratic primary season. Network footage obtained by the Cut shows Matthews, during the interview setup, making a couple of “jokes” about Clinton. He asks, “Can I have some of the queen’s waters? Precious waters?” And then, as he waits for the water, he adds, “Where’s that Bill Cosby pill I brought with me?” Matthews then laughs, delighted with the line, for an extended moment, as the staffers around him react with disbelief, clearly uncomfortable. (Cosby has been accused of sexual impropriety...

    Looks like calling President Trump unstable and unfit isn’t enough for liberals like Chris Matthews. The Hardball host has now resorted to claiming that Trump reminds him of a homicidal freak from a “Twilight Zone” episode. On this evening’s Hardball, Matthews, speaking to “Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff, said: “I really mean this, when I was reading your book . . . the mood in yours is a different sense, it’s a scary sense. It reminds me of that Twilight [Zone] episode, way back in the 60s, where there’s this kid with auto-kinetic powers. "Ferocious kid with no mental...

    Before Christmas, it was revealed that MSNBC’s Chris Matthews had settled a sexual harassment claim back in 1999. The Daily Caller first reported on this story, which was confirmed by NBC News. Called a “separation-related payment,” an NBC producer received some $40,000, though NBC says the payment was much less. Matthews is part of a string of men who have been accused, and in some cases, fired for sexual misconduct. Today’s Matt Lauer was fired such behavior. CBS News’ Charlie Rose was dismissed as well. Mark Halperin of NBC News was also given the axe. Matthews still has his job...

    MSNBC Host Chris Matthews runs an at times openly derisive and brazenly sexist news operation that has led at least some staffers to describe themselves as victims of “battered wives syndrome,” according to three of his show’s guests and two former producers who spoke exclusively to The Daily Caller. Two former NBC producers independently alleged Matthews would rate the looks of his female guests on a scale and said Matthews was so abusive that staff joked about being battered women. The interviews in total paint Matthews as a tyrant liable to fly off the handle at the slightest mistake, who...

    As 2017 comes to a close, this week NewsBusters is recounting the most obnoxious liberal bias of the year. Today’s installment: the most outrageous examples of journalists fawning over liberal or left-wing icons, including Barack Obama who MSNBC’s Chris Matthews swooned over: a “fine case of that fine man” that was a “fine president.” His colleague Rachel Maddow called Obama a “top ten” president of all-time who saved us from another Great Depression, while former disgraced Today show host Matt Lauer admitted he “burst out crying” over Obama and Joe Biden’s final moments. And of course, there was also praise...

    MSNBC’s meltdown over Fox News‘ criticism of the Mueller investigation continues. This morning, we reported Joe Scarborough’s overwrought assertion that Fox News was fomenting a “constitutional crisis” that could lead to “violence.” The handwringing continued on this evening’s Hardball. First, MSNBC regular John Heilemann claimed that Fox’s language was “dangerous” in a way that leads to “blowing up the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City.” Chris Matthews then weighed in, saying it sounded like “Third World talk . . . where the guy loses the election, so you put him in jail or hang him.” Get the rest of the story...

    With the latest sexual harassment news about MSNBC's Chris Matthews having to pay a $40,000 settlement to an assistant producer for Hardball in 1999, can anybody be really surprised? The reason is that Matthews over the years has a record of very strange behavior of a leering nature around women, much of it recorded for posterity. Two notable examples are presented below, starting with the the uncomfortable 2007 incident in which Matthews asked then-CNBC's Street Signs host Erin Burnett to lean in closer to the camera so he could get a better look at her (and presumably her chest).

    Amber Athey of the Daily Caller exclusively reported last night that NBC paid large sums of money - upwards of tens of thousands of dollars- to Chris Matthews' assistant producer in 1999 after she brought forth sexual harassment complaints against the current MSNBC “Hardball with Chris Matthews” anchor.Two anonymous MSNBC sources told the Daily Caller that Matthews paid $40,000 to settle a sexual harassment complaint with the unnamed woman, but an MSNBC spokesperson officially denied those monetary claims. However, they did say that the company paid the woman “significantly less as part of a severance package" and confirmed an incident...

    NBC made a separation-related payment years ago to an employee who worked for Chris Matthews after she accused him of sexual harassment, according to a report Saturday. The unidentified woman, a former assistant producer on his MSNBC show, "Hardball with Chris Matthews," told company executives that Matthews made inappropriate remarks and jokes about her with others present, the Daily Caller reported. After a review, Matthews received a formal reprimand, but determined that his comments towards the woman were only childish and inappropriate and not meant as propositions. Sources told the outlet that NBC paid the woman $40,000 in a 1999...

    (That thrill wasn't up his leg!) An MSNBC spokesman confirmed Saturday the company made a separation-related payment to one of Chris Matthews employees after the woman complained about sexual harassment. Two sources familiar with the situation told The Daily Caller that Matthews paid $40,000 to settle with an assistant producer on his show, “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” in 1999 after she accused him of harassment. An MSNBC spokesperson contested that claim to the Caller, saying the company instead paid significantly less as part of a severance package.

    Chris Matthews has come close to calling a liar an Alabama woman who said her grandmother was 16 when she married a man in his 30s. On this evening’s Hardball, Boston Globe reporter Annie Linskey said that a woman she interviewed in Alabama told her that her grandmother had married at 16. Matthews retorted, “yeah, but her grandfather was 17.” Linskey replied, “no, no, he was in his 30s.” Shot back a skeptical Matthews: “No! Are they dreaming this up just to win the case down there? That seems very convenient.” Get the rest of the story and view the...
