The Other "R" Word

Fulminations and spittle-fleckations: Chris Matthews while castigating Limbaugh for using the term "regime" as a descriptor of the Obama........ahhhh........regime.

Chris' memory is getting a bit short.

...on June 14, 2002, Chris Matthews himself introduced a panel discussion about a letter signed by many prominent leftists condemning the Bush administration’s conduct of the war on terror. “Let’s go to the Reverend Al Sharpton,” Matthews said. “Reverend Sharpton, what do you make of this letter and this panoply of the left condemning the Bush regime?

S'pose Rush cadged Matthews?

Mathews is an entertainer. Rush is an entertainer. Nothing either guy says should be taken very seriously.

Entertainer is one thing. Comedian is another. As El Rushbo himself says, "words mean things", and if we are to hold Limbaugh accountable for his words, we should do the same for Matthews - who is supposed to be a "higher form" of media life...the NEWS ANALYST or NEWS COMMENTATOR.

But Matthews is not a higher form of media life. The "news commentator" is no different than the radio entertainer we hear on AM. In fact, many "news commentators" are former and current radio personalities these days. We should treat them the same.

Words mean something for sure and both guys should be held accountable for there words, especially when they don't practice what they preach. Words mean more coming from a source of credibility. Both of these guys have proven that they don't practice what they preach and, therefor, lack credibility.
