Chris Matthews resigns from MSNBC

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/02/business/media/chris-matthews-resigns-steps-down-msnbc.html

 

This article defines where we are now in this country. and how, people deal with others, disregarding truth, innuendos, or rumors.
If Mr Matthews said what he said about Sanders, I don't  blame him I have seen Sanders campaign engage in many of the Trump practices. and that many in this message boar had called Nazi 
I believe that before public officials, engage in any kind of demonizing, insulting, lying, and bullying. they should simply prove their facts before they are published and provide their victims or so called bad people to defend themselves.

One complaint was that Matthews would compliment women’s looks. He said of Sarah Palin that there was “something electric” and “very attractive” about her. He told Erin Burnett, “You’re a knockout.” All true. He made a couple of mild compliments to Bassett: “Why haven’t I fallen in love with you yet?”

...

Why do these women pretend to be undone by a stray compliment? There’s always some ulterior motive. Bassett is utterly blatant about her real motive: She wanted Matthews fired for the way he interviewed Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren. She thinks Matthews damaged her political favorites, thinking (probably correctly) that when a prominent Democrat criticizes such candidates, he signals other moderate Democrats and centrists that it’s okay to vote for someone else.

 , Matthews called male supporters of  female Hillary Clinton "castratos in the eunuch chorus."   and that seemed to be OKAY with MSNBC   at the time ......he had  become so deranged with misogyny that I turned to FOX News for civility (not really I'm kidding about turning to  Fox anyway )  

 

BUT NOW  Matthews  needs to resign cause he called MALE  Bernie Sanders’ victory in the Nevada caucuses to the 1940 Nazi invasion of France .   I think it's more like the invasion of socialism like Cuba---the Soviet Bloc....that Bernie praised again cause for him it's okay for a regime  to torture and murder as long as they provide free education and healthcare.  But that's not the definition of socialism any longer.     The word "social benefits" are now a part of our past language.

Germany doesn't look totalitarian to me.

 

I kind of like the idea of free college, universal health care, safe and affordable food and drugs, and a respect for science in the area of climate change.

 

I don't know if Matthews was attacking Sanders personally or what the Sanders platform is about .

 

Then again there could be things here we can't see.  Maybe Matthews is just a dinosaur and he knows it.  Maybe he has a long list of NDAs.

Here is an example of unintended consequences and misinformation. I am not going to blame you for not knowing all the facts. why should you? Cuba has not been an important factor now for many years. but.
I can guarantee you that Cuba had free education always. we had a free public education system from 1st grade up to our HIgh School. and the University of Havana has always since its inception which was on  1623  free for all that wanted to attend.
Mr Sanders as usual prays on the lack of knowledge of others. Castro never instituted free education. I was there he did engage in a program of literacy which because I was a teacher had to take part in. nothing else changed. the public school system stayed and the private school system also stayed.

If the media is this adamant about going after Matthews, why aren't they more aggressive in going after trump for all of his name calling and demeaning people?

The Media like law enforcement goes after the Mob Boss all the time as that's their job. Trump is a mob boss, and we have seen both groups go after Trump. Sadly Barr is stopping the Fed. law enforcement from doing its job with Trump. Hopefully after Nov. we will see that change.

Double standard, like most of the media does in their coverage of Trump. But if you watch the news you know that, if not you are uninformed.
