Last night I watched the coverage of the New Hampshire primary results on MSNBC. I listened as Chris Matthews said, “I give her a lot of personal credit; I will never underestimate Hillary Clinton again.” As he said that, I thought to myself, “yeah right.”
Well, “yeah right,” was right. As Greg Sargent points out today:
But by this morning Matthews had already forgotten his newfound respect for her. He said: “The reason she’s a U.S. Senator, the reason she’s a candidate for President, the reason she may be a front-runner, is her husband messed around. That’s how she got to be Senator from New York. We keep forgetting it. She didn’t win it on the merits…”
Astounding isn’t it? Watch this clip of Matthews from last night and then this morning:
Anyone who thinks that Hillary Clinton can get a fair shake in the media, can think again. Taylor Marsh has more. Matthews petty and vile statements about Hillary Clinton this morning personify the ugly sexism that is rampant in the media coverage of Hillary Clinton.
