Gingrich Says No Way to MSNBC’s Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann

If he ever runs for president, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) has certain things he’d never do. He says the main one is he’d never participate in certain media-sponsored debates, particularly an NBC debate if moderated by MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann or Chris Matthews. Gingrich made the comments on C-SPAN’s “Washington Journal” program this morning.

“There’s no possibility that I would ever go to a debate and have Olbermann or Chris Matthews asking questions.  I watched the debate a couple of years ago and it was an embarrassment because they were so relentlessly hostile and they were so left-wing that every question they asked of the Republicans was designed to embarrass and divide the Republicans.  And  every question they asked the Democrats was designed to make them look good.  Well why would we participate in that?”
