They may think it's a movement...and that's what it is...

The Sweet Jesus I Hate Chris Matthews Anti-Massacree Movement. And all you gotta do to join is to sing it along with the good folks at Media Matters, who urge everyone who has had enough of Chris Matthews' sexist, racist, and just plain ridiculous journalistic hackery, to contact Matthews' employer and let NBC/MSNBC know that We Are Not Amused:

MSNBC

MSNBC TV

Secaucus, N.J. 07094

Chris Matthews

Media Matters was all over Tweety long before I slapped up this here blog the other day, thinking it'd be just another forgotten corner of Blogtopia(™ Skippy). The attention we've received over the last few days has been fantastic, but Media Matters has been on the case as far back as April 2005.

The point here is not to hound anyone into the unemployment line -- not even Chris Matthews. But Chris Matthews' history of bizarre mancrushes to the misogyny that reaches preposterous heights where Hillary Clinton is concerned removes any credibility he has as a journalist. In case you thought his misogyny was just a manifestation of Clinton Derangement Syndrome take a look at his attempt to knock down the formidable Elizabeth Edwards after the Iowa caucus:





Cable news may still represent a relatively small resource for where most Americans receive their news. But a theme started and hammered by cable news has a nasty habit of migrating over to the network newscasts that constitute the main resource for most of America to receive information about candidates. Matthews' main concern may be who kisses his ass the most, but he's not contributing anything of value to the discourse in this country. This year the stakes are too high to put up with it any longer.

Matthews has already migrated to network news - here in NYC The Chris Matthews Show airs before MTP on Sunday mornings.

Elizabeth Edwards is a class act - God, I wish I could remain that composed when being reduced by an ignoramus.

OK, now I have to go write MSNBC - thanks for this blog.....

To look into the soul of Chris Matthews, use a colonoscopy probe.
