    Chris Matthews Out at MSNBC

    Chris Matthews Out at MSNBC

    He and the network have voluntarily agreed to part ways after several controversial comments made last week, including comments critical of Bernie Sanders

    Chris Matthews, long-time “Hardball” host is done at MSNBC.

    Without any warning, Matthews announced his departure from the network Monday.

    From NBC:

    Chris Matthews, one of the longest-tenured voices at MSNBC, announced his retirement during Monday’s night’s airing of his talk show, “Hardball.”

    Matthews, 74, said he and MSNBC had mutually agreed to part ways. The decision followed a series of events that resulted in criticism of the host’s statements about Bernie SandersAfrican-American lawmakers, and comments he had made to female journalists and coworkers.

    “I’m retiring,” Matthews said. “This is the last ‘Hardball’ on MSNBC.”

    Matthews was due to retire in the near future with the events of the past week playing a factor in the timing of the move, an MSNBC spokesperson said.

    Matthews, a former speechwriter for President Jimmy Carter, has hosted “Hardball” on MSNBC since 1999 and remained a centrist voice on the cable news channel’s prime-time programming, which often features commentary that is further to the left.

    Partisan hack loses his platform. Can’t cry over that.

    Can he take Maddow with him? Insufferable…

    Putting aside the snark for a moment this is not a win for the Left. Matthews was a connection for a lot of people who lean Democrat to something other than commenters like Maddow. They have Brian Williams still but there is still something to be said for your credibility to have older stablished commenters that appear to still be on your side. I think this makes the Left on MSNBC even more isolated when they wack one of the few old White guys that was still around.

    Why would the media fire a Bernie critic? Has the DNC suddenly decided to support Sanders?

    I’m not happy the woke-adile (Greg Gutfeld’s term as it’s the crocodile every trembling leftist hopes will eat them last) has devoured another victim.

    But honestly, how did this geriatric drunk hold down a job at all, anywhere, for the past 20 years? I only watched MSNBC on rare occasions, such as when they kept trying and failing to recall Scott Walker in Wisconsin and when Trump was elected (and I plan on watching when he’s reelected) just to enjoy the looks of shock, horror, and disbelief on the faces of the anchors as they contemplated suicide. And the break-away shots of snowflakes melting down in tears as they realized they failed for the umpteenth time.

    There was Matthews, the loudmouth drunk at the end of the bar.
