Chris Matthews Show cancelled
The Chris Matthews Show that was on NBC over the weekend has been, cancelled, in yet another epic failure for tingles and NBC. The last broadcast of this left wing propaganda show will be July 21st. The Chris Matthews show was basically an extension of his weekday Hardball show that featured leftists to bash those ‘evil’ conservative. I’m actually surprised that the blame for the cancelled show wasn’t given to the tea party or Ted Cruz or something. Comcast hasn’t completely learned from their mistake. Hardball will continue and they even threw millions of dollars at Matthews to keep him ‘focused’ on his low rated MSNBC leftist propaganda show.
Statement from Chris Matthews:
“I want “Hardball” fans to know that I’m signing a long-term contract with MSNBC to carry on a show we started back in 1997 based on a book I wrote in 1988. To be perfectly truthful, I’d be doing what I do on the show – talking and arguing politics – for nothing even if it weren’t on the air. I think the viewer can tell I put all I’ve got out there Monday through Friday evenings.
The one adjustment I’m making is to pull back from the weekend “Chris Matthews Show.” There are limits to what I can do in a week. Henceforth, I intend to concentrate any time left over from “Hardball” on writing books like the one I’m committed to now on the relationship between Tip O’Neill and Ronald Reagan, that and producing documentaries on history and politics.
I’d like to salute the excellent work done by “The Chris Matthews Show” executive producer, the great Nancy Nathan. For more than a decade, she and her team have allowed me to offer great Sunday morning television. I have been proud of every program and the chance to interview some of the best journalists in this country, and, yes, to have them “tell me something I don’t know.”
I’ve been fortunate to have had a number of exciting jobs over the years: running a small business program in the Kingdom of Swaziland, Africa, with the Peace Corps; working for two influential US Senators, speechwriting for a President, serving as top aide to a legendary Speaker of the House, writing for the San Francisco Examiner and Chronicle from 1987 through 2002.
I had to quit my syndicated column for the Chronicle to start “The Chris Matthews Show.” There was a limit to what I could do in 2002, as there is now. I will miss having the weekend show just as I missed having the column, but I can’t do everything and still do what I have to do well.”
I love how when shows get cancelled like the Chris Matthews Show did that they call it leaving or ‘pulling back.’
