Hardball

This evening as I was flipping through the channels, I lingered for a moment on Chris Matthews. He was interviewing a guy about the NIE that said Iran had stopped it's nuclear weapons program in 2003. Matthews was trying to get the guy to say that Bush had deliberately supressed the NIE so he could make a case for going to war with Iran.

Well, the guy, I think he was an ex Under Secretary of State, didn't bite. He told Matthews he thought the NIE and the assertion that Bush was up to no good was "silly". Needless to say Chris was not pleased to hear this and up popped the "Breaking News" sign and they cut away to the shootings in Omaha. Funny thing is the "breaking news" had already broken several hours earlier and had already been hashed over numerous times.

I have never liked Matthews and now I like him even less. His holier than thou attitude and constant denigration of Bush and Cheney speaks volumes about his character and his political bias. I don't begrudge him his opinion but to voice it disguised as news is a travesty. If he wants to voice his opinion, let him be a commentator (of which I have very few on this blog).

I knew people like Matthews when I was in middle and high school and most of them grew out of their nah-nah-nah in your face BS. Those that didn't got it beaten out of them. That is what I would like to Matthews. Beat that snotty attitude out of him and make him grow up.

Greetings, Chuck! Beyond his unhidden partisanship, the thing that bugs me most about Chrissy-Boy is his continual habit of interrupting an interviewee's reply with another question -- often only about 4-5 seconds into the reply. For those reasons I quit watching ANYTHING the clown has to say.

Larry: Great to hear from you again. As you can see I haven't posted much lately. It seems like no one is reading so I have slacked off writing.

You are right about Matthews. He is not only an extremely biased host he is rude beyond belief. If I were a guest on his show, I would probably pull his thin, dried up lips off. I simply can't abide people like him.

Chuck, keep writing whether or not anyone seems to be reading or not.

And Matthews is a loser with no ratings. In fact, MSNBC is the same.

obtw, I also lived in Savannah (62-65)...lived in Warner Robins twice and graduated from UGA. Go Dawgs!
