Archives For chris matthews

it seems as if chris matthews mentions scranton in every show. so you’d think the “hardball” host wouldn’t get soft with the local media, while visiting the city… right?

the pennsylvania-born tv host interviewed sen. joe biden after sunday’s rally with former president bill clinton and senator hillary clinton. listen to the audio and figure out what really went on.

i would be blown off another time – and not granted an inning or two of “hardball.”

matthews did have plenty of time to sign autographs and take photos with adoring fans at the rally, so it wasn’t as if i bothered him while he was prepping for a segment/interview.

from the mccain-palin camp:

“Angry Joe Biden today riled up his crowd with fictitious claims about John McCain. For an Obama-Biden campaign spending more money on negative advertising than any campaign in history, red-faced Joe Biden shouted and cursed but couldn’t shake Obama’s job-killing prescription of higher taxes and bigger government. Like most of ole Joe’s pitches and tall tales, Biden’s claims for energy independence through clean coal are at odds with his record.  It was just last month that he adamantly claimed an Obama-Biden administration would say ‘no’ to clean coal plants in America. His reversal today on clean coal is one more fib from ole Joe.” – Ben Porritt McCain-Palin spokesman.

not sure if i would characterize biden as angry… definitely loud and adamant though.

about to leave the riverfront sports complex now… chris matthews and his producers have blown me off a solid three times. the tv host is currently chatting it up with sen. bob casey – who i did speak with and who you’ll hear from tomorrow night on the ralphie radio show.

trying to get a word with him…
