A big thank you to Chris Matthews for having the courage and moral fiber

to tell it face to face! I think that took guts.

Some other so called 'journalists' need to step up like Chris did.

So, thank you Chris Matthews, I have a little more hope today than I did yesterday!

This is what I wrote and sent to him on the link you provided.

"Dear Mr Matthews; I was very inspired by your courage yesterday when you stood up to Reince Priebus, though, sadly, you stood alone. More journalists need to step up like you did and tell the truth. This country, our country, is at stake here and I applaud you for having the moral fiber to do what everyone who has a voice and a platform from which to use it should be doing. You were very inspiring and some of your colleagues need to find their voices to step up like you did. I totally encourage you to continue speaking truth to power. Bravo! "

So thanks again for the link

65. Browkaw is better than Brian Williams,...but not by much...

 

WILLIAMS: I do listen to Rush. I listen to it from a radio in my office, or depending on my day, if I'm in the car, I will listen to Rush. And he will tell you I've been listening for years. I think it's my duty to listen to Rush. I think Rush has actually yet to get the credit he is due, because his audience for so many years felt they were in the wilderness of this country. No one was talking to them.

Rush said to millions of Americans, you have a home. Come with me. For three hours a day you can listen and hear the like-minded calling in from across the country, and I'll read to you things perhaps you didn't see that are out there. I think Rush gave birth to the FOX News Channel. I think Rush helped to give birth to a movement. I think he played his part in the Contract with America. So I hope he gets his due as a broadcaster.

And it's usually due to inadequate preparation when he runs cold.

But when someone tweaks his liberal sensibilities from the old days, he will roar.

Or perhaps he just was having a blood sugar moment. He's a long-time diabetic.

He was at the WH Correspondents Dinner, talking to a comedian who had headlined the bash. He didn't know the camera was picking up his words. He told this guy that he (Tweety) deliberately runs hot and cold because it creates audience interest.

He does have a temper.

63. Here's what I sent...

 

Long, but oh well. I had to get a few things off my chest!

Chris,

Your exchange with Reince Priebus Sunday was nothing short of brilliant. I have never witnessed such hatred coming from the Republican Party in my lifetime. Tom Brokaw is wrong! This mainstream media meme that "both sides do it" is wrong! I don't remember any Democrat calling for the overthrow of government should a Republican win. I've never heard anything from a Democrat accusing a Republican president of being foreign-born, demanding college transcripts and birth certificates, calling him a terrorist, threatening armed insurrection. I've never heard Democrats going after 14th Amendment citizenship rights, attempting to thwart voting rights, questioning religious beliefts and love of this great country just because the president is a Republican. For if we did hear anything like this coming from the Democratic Party, rest assured that they were dealt with swiftly by the Republicans and the so-called "liberal media." You and I both know this!

Chris, you were right! The rhetoric coming from the right is about race!! The Southern Strategy has been a hallmark of the Republican electoral platform for decades now. It is about divisiveness; it is about fomenting fear and hatred among whites who are led to believe that black people are getting something that belongs to them! Newt Gingrich called the president 'The Foodstamp President'. Donald Trump told the president to get off the basketball court and show us your transcripts! Rick Santorum doesn't want to make "blah people's lives better" by giving them other people's money! These words don't amount to simply coincidence! This is racial rhetoric! This is pure hatred! This is what the Southern Strategy was all about.

You once begged Mike Steele to call the Republicans out on the race rheotic. Tell the Republicans to stop the hate! And tell your colleagues in the mainstream media to start doing their jobs and calling out the hate when it happens!

Thank you again for your honesty, forthrightness and moral rectitude.

71. Did Chris look in the mirror and see the brown nose

he developed during the Bush years and did he have an epiphany? Since my house has been a Tweety free zone ever since the days he constantly bashed the Clintons, what did the yellow-haired wonder do that everyone is applauding him for? Is there a YouTube video or something?

82. He continued to rant on Sharpton's show

and even left Sharpton speechless and that's with Sharpton having basically said the same thing the whole year that he has been on the air for MSNBC.
