Chris Matthews Weighs In On Politics, MSNBC To Larry King, ABC News

MSNBC host Chris Matthews continues his book tour. The latest appearances are on ABC News/ web video series “Politics Confidential” with Jonathan Karl, and on Larry King‘s politics program for Ora TV.

Matthews talked to King about the politics of cable news and MSNBC, and how viewers tend to migrate to hosts who share their point of view. That said, Matthews says he makes an effort to keep at least some Republican viewers.

WATCH:

Matthews talked to Karl about his days working for House speaker Tip O’Neil and how politics in the 80′s compares to the politics of today.

Update: Greta Van Susteren isn’t happy with how Matthews described her. She weighs in on her blog.

So why bother to respond? Because it is now on the internet what he says about me and it is wrong. It needs to be corrected. Matthews makes stuff up about me and unless I answer it, it lives unanswered on the internet for ever and some may falsely take it to be true.
