    “I did suffer from sexual harassment from older men and men in power. And they made it very clear some of the exchanges that would have to happen in order for me to be promoted there. And I was so young, so naive. I didn't even really understand what was going on. I knew that I had to leave,” Emily Miller told Fox News’s Howard Kurtz on Sunday. . . . The New York attorney general’s office is reportedly investigating how the network handled sexual harassment allegations. The revelation came after NBCUniversal announced that NBC News Chairman Andy Lack was...

    The New York attorney general’s office late last year launched an investigation into allegations of sexual harassment, retaliation and gender discrimination at NBC News, Variety has learned. NBC News chief Andrew Lack and former “Hardball” host Chris Matthews were among multiple high-ranking executives and newsroom talents whose behavior was the subject of questioning, according to multiple sources. Among those who cooperated with the investigation by providing testimony was Megyn Kelly, an individual close to the former “Today” host told Variety. Kelly declined to comment. News of the investigation followed the surprise announcement Monday that Lack would depart the company months...

    The New York Attorney General's office is looking into NBC News over reported claims of sexual harassment there, investigative journalist Rich McHugh revealed to Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight" on Monday night. Host Tucker Carson began the interview by asking McHugh if he had heard that the New York AG has been "investigating" NBC News over "sexual abuse, sexual harassment claims." "Well, that's kind of amazing," Carlson reacted. "So, just to be completely clear... the New York Attorney General's office is looking into NBC News. Remarkable." It was announced earlier Monday that NBC News chairman Andy Lack will leave the...

    On the Monday before Super Tuesday, longtime MSNBC host Chris Matthews came on the air and promptly, tartly announced he was retiring, that "tonight will be my last 'Hardball.'" His language and tone strongly implied he was being pushed out. Politically, it felt like part of a pattern. At the same time that Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar suddenly dropped out of the race in an apparent attempt to solidify the anti-Bernie Sanders vote, MSNBC was acting in the opposite direction, shedding a host that had become a liability with the Sanders socialists, who are a decent chunk of the...

    Chris Matthews didn’t get fired for being a sex monster. He got fired for doing his job. And what was that job? To represent the non-crazy, “No Kool-Aid for me, thanks” Left on television, while being entertaining and pointed and wacky. Read the GQ piece published Friday that apparently got Matthews fired and you’ll note that the writer, Laura Bassett, had two completely unrelated categories of complaint that she artfully weaved together to create an indictment of Matthews as a sexist. One complaint was that Matthews would compliment women’s looks. He said of Sarah Palin that there was “something electric”...
  • Bye-Bye Chris! The Worst of Matthews

    He’s gone! After 23 years at CNBC and MSNBC, Chris Matthews has “retired” from as Hardball host. But it wasn’t his multitude of nasty attacks on conservatives and sycophantic praise of liberal pols that did him in, but his years of suggestive comments to women that finally caught up to him.

    News veterans Shepard Smith, Steve Kornacki and Joy Reid are all on the shortlist to take over Chris Matthews’ abruptly vacated seat on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” sources told The Post. The legendary political journalist surprised viewers Monday when he abruptly announced his retirement in the wake of accusations that he acted inappropriately toward a female guest, leaving Kornacki, a national political correspondent, to fill in. In addition to Kornacki, who is known for giving analysis of polls and election results, network brass are also thinking of giving “Hardball” to Reid, who hosts, MSNBC’s popular weekend show “AM Joy.” Reid frequently substitutes...

    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...

    MSNBC's Chris Matthews on Monday announced he is retiring effective immediately. Monday's episode of "Hardball" will be the last. "Let me start with my headline tonight. I'm retiring. This is the last 'Hardball' on MSNBC and, obviously, this isn't for a lack of interest in politics," Matthews explained. "As you can tell, I've loved every minute of my 20 years as host of 'Hardball.' Every morning I read the papers and I'm gung-ho to get to work. Not many people have had this privilege." According to the host, he has enjoyed his time working with producers to decide the angle...

    The 'Hardball' host made the shock announcement on Monday night, after more than 20 years at the network. MSNBC host Chris Matthews announced his retirement from the network on Monday night after more than 20 years at the left-leaning cable channel. He will be replaced at 7 p.m. by a rotating group of hosts. While Matthews was expected to retire in the near future, the sudden announcement comes amid of a series of recent flaps and controversies. Last Monday, Matthews apologized to Bernie Sanders for comparing his rise in the 2020 campaign to the German invasion of France. "Let me...

    Longtime MSNBC host Chris Matthews may want to start polishing up his resume, because on Friday he committed his third major faux pas in less than seven days by mistaking one black man for another. In the oft-used words of the president: “Not good.” He specifically mistook Sen. Lindsey Graham’s primary challenger, a South Carolina Democrat by the name of Jaime Harrison, for Republican Sen. Tim Scott. As he was speaking on a panel that included Harrison, a clip appeared on the screen of Scott standing by Graham. After one of his fellow panelists made some remarks about Sen. Bernie...

    MSNBC host Chris Matthews “inappropriately flirted” with a much younger female guest on at least two occasions while she was getting made up to appear on his “Hardball” show, the woman wrote Friday. Freelance journalist Laura Bassett, who previously wrote about the incidents in 2017 without naming Matthews, identified him in a column published by GQ. “I was afraid to name him at the time for fear of retaliation from the network; I’m not anymore,” she wrote. During one incident in 2016, Matthews — who’s married to Kathleen Matthews, a former Maryland Democratic Party chairwoman — allegedly “looked over at...

    While on air during a Trump rally in South Carolina, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews confused S.C. Democratic senate candidate Jamie Harrison with Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), both of whom are black. “I see you standing there next the guy you’re going to beat maybe,” Matthews said to Harrison, while the camera was on a frame of Scott and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.). Matthews, the host of “Hardball,” was immediately corrected by other anchors before realizing he had mixed up the two S.C. politicians. “Big mistake, mistaken identity, sorry,” Matthews said. Matthews has stirred controversy in recent weeks leading to several calls...

    MSNBC's Chris Matthews, the host of "Hardball," made waves Saturday when he compared Sen. Bernie Sander's (D-VT) victory in Nevada to the Nazis overrunning the Maginot Line in France in 1940. Lefties – and those who are predominantly Bernie supporters – called on Matthews to resign or for the television network to fire the long-time host. Derek Hunter pointed out the one thing conservatives have said for years: the left loves to compare President Trump to Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. They throw the term around willy nilly. The word was used against one of their own and suddenly there's...

    MSNBC's Chris Matthews is under fire after comparing Sen. Bernie Sanders "I was reading last night about the fall of France in the summer of 1940," Matthews said during MSNBC's live coverage of the caucuses on Saturday. "And the general, Reynaud, calls up Churchill and says, 'It's over.' And Churchill says, 'How can that be? You've got the greatest army in Europe. How can it be over?' He said, 'It's over.'"

    MSNBC host Chris Matthews wondered if the Democratic Party would be better off if President Trump wins reelection rather than if Sen. Bernie Sanders takes over the White House. Matthews, 74, brought up the possibility that centrist Democrats may prefer Trump over the socialist Sanders during the network's Saturday afternoon coverage of the Nevada caucuses. The host of Hardball with Chris Matthews was leading a conversation about how centrist candidates were splitting the vote, likely a detriment to one another but a benefit for Sanders. "I’m wondering whether the Democratic moderates want Bernie Sanders to be president," he said. "That’s...
