In defense of Chris Matthews…
According to Atrios, Newt Gingrich had this to say about the debate moderated by MSNBC’s Chris Matthews:
Gingrich mocked Republican presidential candidates for subjecting themselves to a May debate hosted by Chris Matthews of MSNBC’s “Hardball.”
“You’re watching an utterly irrelevant, shallow television celebrity dominate everybody who claimed they want to lead the most powerful nation in the world,” he said.
I think I can speak for just about everyone when I say that I don’t think that people consider Chris Matthews a “television celebrity”.
