The Post vs. Matthews

The New York Post editorializes against Chris Matthews…

Is there a smaller, more unprincipled man in the national political debate than Chris Matthews of MSNBC?

No, there is not.

Bereft of decency and devoid of soul, what mattered most for Matthews is that his candidate — in this case, President Obama — somehow was boosted over the top.

And if millions of his fellow citizens encounter appalling deprivations along the way — well, to Matthews, they’re just eggs to be broken for the Obama omelet.

“I’m so glad we had that storm last week,” he said Tuesday.

By which he meant Hurricane Sandy, which sowed death and destruction all along the East Coast — especially in the New York metropolitan region.

“The storm brought in possibilities for good politics,” he added — referencing polls suggesting Sandy gave Obama a critical jolt.

Never mind the 100-plus deaths.

Never mind the destruction.

Never mind the tens of thousands still huddled without heat or power on Staten Island. Or Breezy Point. Or the Rockaways and Coney Island.

In case you missd it, Matthews apologized for it already…

  1. What is there left to expound on about Chris Mathews, that hasn’t been pointed out before?

  2. What a waste of editorial space. I’m sick of Matthews, too, but ridiculing his Twitter followups, and failing to recognize his apology on Hardball yesterday, is some seriously sloppy journalism. The New York Post criticizing someone else for a lack of morality is hilarious.

  3. Joe, Matthews has had to apologize several times already. What’s the point of apologizing if he is going to continue being an angry, hateful jackass?

  4. I agree, Carol, but that doesn’t change the fact that that yellow rag presented the story inaccurately.

    Then NY Post owner is News Corporation. Would you expect anything less then them using the editorial page to bash MSNBC?

    Matthew’s apology was heartfelt and real…no excuses. If someone is looking to make a big deal out of this, shame on them. He said something stupid, he regretted it, and he immediately apologized.

  7. He walked it back immediately after saying it, too, then again on Twitter a few minutes later.
