Seems MSNBC’s Chris Matthews is on the hot seat right now with some women around the country.
Matthews, the host of Hardball with Chris Matthews, has been called sexist for commments that he has made over the years and for treatment of Hilary Clinton during the Democratic primary race.
According to this article, in one instance Matthews called a woman a ‘knockout’. In another he referred to Clinton’s (Bill’s) affair and how that affected Hilary’s presidential bid.
I have to be honest: I don’t watch this show. It’s rare that I actually get to sit down and watch television at all these days, but now that I’ve come across this article I’ll have to tune in to the show a few times, if nothing more than to just curb some curiousity.
According to the women who are interested in having Matthews removed from the show, he may not be the only target. In fact, Amy Siskind, who founded The New Agenda (the group responsible for trying to end Matthews’ career), Matthews is just one of the men being targeted in what Siskind referes to as MSNBC’s “the boys of sexism” cable network.
I can’t really comment much because I haven’t watched the show but I’d love to hear what other people have to say about this who have.
