it’s not an excuse but he was a dinosaur and totally out of place on TV even last election cycle, this one he is way past overdue to retire but MSNBC seems to have seen him through his cancer treatments so I guess that was kind

(still won’t forgive them for firing Melissa Harris Perry who was one of the best hosts there ever)

Sexual harassment allegations, you say? Gosh, why would he be inclined to try and undermine the credibility of women accusing Bloomberg of the same thing? Can’t imagine why…

Why do I have the feeling that he’ll turn up on FoxNews?

It was a pretty epic flounce. So he’s got that going for him. Whatever crossover audience there is between MSNBC and Faux News will miss him, I guess. Couldnt watch him myself, will not miss his style one bit.

As a non-watcher of cable news, before I knew anything about him, just seeing the tiniest of clips of him, I still got a sense of who he was.
So,

It’s only a matter of time before he shows up on Fox News.

In 1999… Matthews received a “stern reprimand”

And that didn’t work?!

I’m shocked! That’s the foremost old white man wrist-slap and heretofore has solved all other cases of sexual harassment!!

What is this world coming to?

I guess he doesn’t have to worry about commies in Central Park any more then.

Ah, we could do a collection of his worst behavior, but for sheer inexplicable weirdness, my favorite is that time we rambled endlessly about how out of touch Obama was for ordering orange juice at a diner.

Too bad, I’ve grown fond of his on-air meltdowns. Ah, the memories.

My inner man is totally happy regarding this news.

Jesus, he knows he’s not making sense so he immediately pivots from feigning incredulity that self-protection is a motive for lying to “you’re confident of your accusation.” That was such a bullshit rhetorical power play.

Warren didn’t make an accusation. She simply declined to reflexively accuse the woman who did of being a liar, unlike some people in that video I could name.

He was useless as a political commentator. Canceled? Self canceled? Unknown. Cancel culture is completely dishonest, destructive, and counter productive.

I know today there are no shades of gray, you’re either a 1 or a 0, and I guess we’re all supposed to hate everything Chris Matthews ever did and every word he ever spoke, but I do recall one of my all-time favorite moments on tv was when he didn’t let a laughable right wing talking head get away with spewing complete ignorance unchecked.
