Chris Matthews not running for Senate after all

Posted by: ST on January 7, 2009 at 8:54 pm » 6 Comments

So much for setting that good example I thought he was by going where his (liberal) heart took him. And heck – it makes sense. Him winning that seat was not a sure thing, unlike his job, where he can pay homage to the Dahlibama on MSDNC every week night with no real repercussions. But, […]

The Patriot-News of Harrisburg reports Matthews met with state party leaders this past […]

In part of fulfilling his “duty” to help the incoming administration succeed, Chris Matthews celebrated Barack Obama with a toast alongside Ellen DeGeneres today on her show: MATTHEWS, picking up shot glass: “To Barack Obama!” DEGENERES, toasting: “Yeah.

Another “thrill up my leg” moment from Chris Matthews

During an interview on Joe Scarborough’s show this morning, Obamaniac Chris Matthews gushed that it was “his job” to make the Obama presidency work. Watch/read the video and excerpts here. You’ll get no more of a sincere admission by a member of the mainstream media than that (excepting certain female journalists, of course).


MSNBC: Olbermann and Matthews will no longer anchor live election coverage

Posted by: ST on September 8, 2008 at 9:30 am » 10 Comments

The NYT reports this morning: MSNBC tried a bold experiment this year by putting two politically incendiary hosts, Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews, in the anchor chair to lead the cable news channel’s coverage of the election.

The NY Post has a story today, complete with a photo of an irritated-looking Joe Scarborough, on how there is some internal brawling going on between MSNBC’s show hosts Keith Olbermann, Chris Matthews, David Shuster, and Scarborough: ANIMOSITY among MSNBC anchors has reached a mile-high peak at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, with on-air […]

Quote of the day, from a recent convert to the Cult of Obama

Re: Barack Obama’s speech last night, Hardball’s Chris Matthews had this to gush: I have to tell you, you know, it’s part of reporting this case, this election, the feeling most people get when they hear Barack Obama’s speech. My, I felt this thrill going up my leg. I mean, I don’t have that too […]
