MSNBC host Chris Matthews was all about one thing that was “get my agenda heard, truth be damned.”
PBS White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor found herself in Matthews’ crosshairs when she was called on for her expertise and Matthews tried to shut her up twice.
The socialist media doesn’t care what color you are as long as they can further their agenda. You had to feel sorry for this young lady as she was called to appear on the show to give her expertise on a matter she was familiar with, only to get shut down. For all of you who have never been on one of these news shows, this feeling of being embarrassed doesn’t go away for a while.
The MSNBC host’s first gaffe occurred during a conversation about the FBI’s raid on the office of Trump lawyer Michael Cohen. Excited by PBS White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor’s reporting that Cohen had made audio recordings of conversations with his clients, Matthews began to pontificate about the law. “Avenatti, who’s the lawyer for Stormy Daniels, said Michael Cohen will be in big trouble if he has those tapes because you need two-party approval to do it,” he related excitedly.
“Well,” began an uncomfortable Alcindor, “in New York, from my understanding, you only need one party.” Mathews insisted, “He says you need two.” Ms. Alcindor was correct; New York has one-party consent recording laws, meaning any phone conversation can be taped as long as one of the participants consents to the recording. She carefully navigated the situation so as not to offend Matthews, explaining, “Yeah, so my understanding as a reporter, and as someone who has read it, is you only need one party.”
As you saw in the video, Matthews quickly shifted the subject and moved away from Alcindor. This was a huge disrespect slap in my book, and she should have taken to social media or even YouTube to explain herself and call out Matthews.
But then again, if you do this, you won’t be called back to be on television so there you go.
