Chris Matthews’ moment of unintended honesty: “I hate that so-called evenhanded so-called objective journalism”

by editor on June 27, 2011

As we near the half way mark of 2011, Chris Matthews and Ed Schultz are locked it a tight race to determine which MSNBC host can say the most stupid things in one twelve month period.

Schultz currently holds a narrow lead despite serving a one week suspension for calling Laura Ingraham a slut.

Matthews seems determined to win this competition for the third year in a row (the famed Three-peat) and racked up another point Tuesday night for saying this:

“I hate that so-called evenhanded so-called objective journalism. You know, you know, you can’t say something isn’t true if it’s true in the interest of evenhandedness.”

Matthews is, of course, an expert at so-called journalism, since it is the the only kind of journalism practiced at MSNBC.

So, why do they give equal time to Al Gore?

Cause he has lots and lots of other people’s money and he’s not afraid to show it around in the lowest of places…that’s why.

If Al Gore really believed in what he says, he would commit suicide, & so would the others. If you really believe that overpopulation is the problem, set the example, you go 1st. If People = Global Warming, then maybe “Manditory Suicide” is in order. Other cults have put their money where their mouth is, the GW/CC cult should too. But they are just about the money, & pocketing it, not putting it where their mouth is.

That…. doesn’t make ANY sense. I am not even going to try to understand it. He is lame.

Chrissy Matthews is completely irrelevant, why are we concerning ourselves with this sewer troll? We’ve got bigger fish to fry!

Dipsh1t Matthews is also saying that Bachmann’s support for the original, unadulterated constitution means that she’s pro-slavery. There’s a link at Weasel Zippers.

Just point to the 13th, 14th, & 15th Amendment & tell guys like Matthews to shut up.

Now wait just a minute did chris “tingles” just “YOU CAN’T SAY SOMETHING ISN’T TRUE IF IT IS TRUE?” I can’t seem to get my mind around that comment. If something is true he’s pissed because he can’t say it isn’t true or was that meant the other way around? HELP I’M GOING INSANE I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT HIS BEEF IS.

Almost, but not quite, completely incoherent.

Damn that whole “objective truth” nonsense anyway, right? “Truth” is what serves The Party and The State!

Ya know if IHTM wouldn’t give this guy any press, he would be down to his last seven viewers.. AS my father used to say, Matthews is the kinda guy who can see his colon from the inside.

Listening to Matthews is like listening to my 6 year old when he gets busted for something and he blames it on the TV, his brother, the weather, it was dark, etc. It is just incoherent gibberish and is nothing but humor, and isn’t something to take seriously whatsoever.

I love how Gore mentions the “flat earth” believers. I think another name for them are “man made global warming” believers.

Tell me that if Galileo could come back & kick Al Gore’s ass today, he would.

Maddow and O’Donnell aren’t in the League anymore? And while we’re at it, would someone please let me know the first time MSNBC mentions an actual, verifiable fact. Thank you and good night.

Just when I was beginning to think this stupid excuse for a mouthpiece just couldn’t say anything more asinine, the son of a bitch just has to prove me wrong again. That clown wouldn’t know “Objective Journalism” if it hit him in the head.
Although the ringing noise resonating from the massive empty cavity would be rather amusing.

As usual, he’s incoherent. Logic was obviously an elective at his school.

In “reality” as viewed by Chris Tingles, if Barack Obama was a surgeon who by mistake removed your heart instead of your gall bladder, Chris Tingles would say you died because you are a raaaaacist who didn’t want to be operated on by a black man. The man sees everything thru a prism which is the funhouse mirror provided by his bankrupt ideology.

Okay, so Al Gore, Chris Matthews and the twit from Rolling Stone agree that climate change skeptics are unfairly benefitting from a free press. Damn that First Amendment, why can’t we have more MSNBCs?

Why don’t we have more MSNBC’s? Because they are not economically viable. Wealthy progressive fatcats want to see a return on investment, just like evil conservative corporations do. Example, Air America.
