Chris Matthews survived #MeToo until he angered Bernie Bros and Warren fans
Washington Examiner ^ | March 2, 2020 | Tiana Lowe

MSNBC mainstay Chris Matthews kicked off Hardball the day before Super Tuesday with a shocker: that he would be leaving his signature hour and the network entirely.

Not exactly buried in Matthews's evidently surprise announcement was an admission of sorts.

"A lot of it has to be with how we talk to each other," he said. "Compliments on a women's appearance that some men, including me, might have once incorrectly thought were OK, were never OK. Not then and certainly not today, and, for making such comments in the past, I'm sorry."

The host's departure, which he said resulted after "a conversation with MSNBC," hardly came out of the blue. For months, Matthews and other hosts challenging 2020 front-runner Bernie Sanders have faced the ire of the socialist senator's fans as well as those of Elizabeth Warren. And, only now, did the network apparently care that, for years, rumors of inappropriate behavior have swirled around Matthews.

Right at the onset of the #MeToo movement in late 2017, the Daily Caller uncovered a settlement paid out by NBC to assuage a former employee of Matthews who alleged sexual harassment. Shortly thereafter, multiple sources alleged that Matthews created an "abusive" work environment. Other reporters corroborated the payout and additional details.

But, despite other serial sexual harassers facing punishment, Matthews continued on as usual. That is, until he got under the skin of Warren fans and Bernie Bros.

Just days after he likened Sanders's victory in Nevada to the fall of France to the Nazis, he pressed Warren on her invoking the allegation that Michael Bloomberg told a female employee to have an abortion. Angering Sanders and Warren fans is a good way to alienate a substantial portion of the MSNBC audience.

One reason he was fired: Chris Matthews warns of ‘executions in Central Park’ if socialism wins. The "democratic socialists" will stamp out dissent when/if they attain power.

BS there is nothing wrong with complimenting someone on their appearance, period.

People need to lighten the hell up.

#MeToo is a weapon used to get rid of people who have angered The Powers That Be. I don’t think #MeToo has all that much to do with women. They are just useful idiots.

It’s not if, it’s when. It may not be this time around, but given the tools at their disposal, schools that indoctrinate, a media that is solidly cheering for them, they will gain power sooner or later.

Chris Mathews and Bill O’Reilly ought to get together and do a show.
It would be an amped-up firing line.

This garbage isn’t even new. I had to deal with “Harassment Seminars” back in the early ‘90s when I worked for a bond broker in NYC.

Sexual harassment is just lawyers doing what pimps and pornographers do: cashing in on a woman’s body; however the pimps and pornographers are more honest about it and they don’t pretend they’re social benefactors

As always, the issue is never the issue; the issue is always the revolution.

Exactly HOW BAD is it that after 300 years on MSNBC he quits the day BEFORE Super Tuesday?

Presumably this is like the Super Bowl for leftists and MS-DNC is is the all access, all knowing, font of all Socialist talking points??

I think this is exactly what happened to Matthews.

Weinstein is a different case

But all of this little ones come out when you have upset the applecart.

Timothy Hutton just got fired. His might be different. Don’t see that he upset a lot of people

Except that’s not what he did. He’s been harassing women for decades.

And, like all abusive people, he is taking zero responsibility. Note his language. He’s blaming the new rules. At no point does he acknowledge his own actual wrongdoing. He was misinterpreted. The rules changed.

Poor guy. He’s the victim here. This is a classic abuser posture.

I hope his wife divorces him and writes a truthful book.

And he has been there FOREVER.

No month long “I am leaving”.

No, bring back the most prominent guests to see him off?

No, look back at the most exciting moments?

No, calls from the previous Presidents telling how much he will be missed?

Something Massive happened here. like, Busted molesting kids at BK. Or, in bed pics with a dead hooker big.

Hutton got fired? Wow, the network bailed on him far faster than they did Smollett.
