Via Think Progress. Another week and another racist or sexist slur from the all-white, all-male fratboys at cable "news" network. MSNBC. Hardball's Chris Matthews offered Sen. Barack Obama some "practical" "advice" on how to attract more white men and working class white voters to his presidential campaign.
MATTHEWS: You got to talk like a firebrand because if you‘re carrying their fight for them, they‘re going to like you. You know, a lot of white people root for black athletes because they‘re winning for the home team. People are quite willing to pick up black heroes, if they‘ll win for their side.
Watch the video:
Rod 2.0 previously reported Matthews' colorful description of Obama's bowling game: "This gets very ethnic, but the fact that he’s good at basketball doesn’t surprise anybody."
Matthews, who was forced to make two on-air apologies to Hillary Clinton for crude remarks, often gushes over Obama but continues to offer on-air racial stereotypes. Maybe this is the admission price some people are willing to pay to watch one of
anchor newsreader Keith Olbermann's vitriolic anti-Hillary "Special Comments."
