Matthews Calls For Media To Blacklist Franklin Graham

On the heels of MSNBC dismissing conservative commentator and author Pat Buchanan, Matthews, the network's staunchest Obama supporter, called for news programs to stop inviting Franklin Graham on television to talk politics.

"I think we should stop inviting this guy to talk about politics. He should stay out of the -- I mean, I love the bookings on "Morning Joe." I love the guests. In this case, I think this guy should not be in the public square talking politics," Matthews said on his "Hardball" program. "He's got his own little thing and he ain't his father's son."

  • i saw the full segment on morning joe, it was absolutely devastating towards obama,Graham just calmly explained Obamas phony "conversrion" and took his charade apart, the best part was the liberal hyenas sitting around him, they were stunned into silence, a truly cathartic moment

    • @golem

      I watched it too. Your description is apropo. Their utter amazement that Obama's non-answer was equivalent to a saving faith in Jesus Christ and the audacity of an evangelical preacher diplomatically soft-balling his reservations of "evidence" of Obama's faith, just makes you wonder if these people point at the sunrise every morning.

  • Tingles is just making stuff up. At 1:01 he says the word "white". This guy can't get off race to save his own life. He is obsessed with race, particularly he wants you to know that Obama is black.

    This phantasmagorical strawman he builds with his imagination running away with his mouth once again shows MSNBC has no place in the adult world. They are so out of their league on this topic. I suggest they talk about stacking blocks, naming shapes, or discussing colors....with time left a More..

    • @Yukon6400 I know it will never happen, but wouldn't it be hilarious if MSNBC replaced Mathews with a black conservative? Maybe like Walter Williams.

    • @mdscorpio71

      Tingles obsession with race may one day lead him to have a Howard Cosell moment. That, in a sort of forced affirmative action response, could begat a Juan Williams like black. Which compared to Tingles, they would consider an Atilla the Hun. What you might call the "black sheep" of a very white family. :-)

  • Just like MSNBC to try and silence opinions that don't prop up their dear leader.

  • Matthews, once again you're talking out of you're ass but then again that probably has more sense than what is perched on your shoulders. Waiting for someone to reach across the table and smack you upside the head and my money is on you crying like the snot-rant you are.

  • Most Americans are also not practicing members of a Christian church, so polling all Americans about their opinion on Mormonism, especially when most of those people are ignorant about Christian theology, let alone about Mormon theology, doesn't say much. Matthews flashes that poll on the screen very quickly to suggest that the "fact" he just ran off was true, but actually it's not. That poll was not of practicing Christians or even of those who vaguely identify as Christians. It in More..

  • Is anyone surpirsed? If you work on MSNBC, there is only one 'right' way to think and if you go against the crowd, you'll pay the price.

  • Normally I'm knee-jerk against anything Chris Tingles is in favor of, but he's right on this one. That guy has no business discussing politics - even on a sham network like MSDNC.
