Matthews Credits Hillary’s Success to Fact That Bill “Messed Around”

TVNewser wondered if MSNBC’s Chris Matthews would say something controversial during the New Hampshire Primary Coverage. It looks like it took him until the next morning.

On yesterday’s Morning Joe, Matthews launched into an anti-Hillary Clinton tirade. “I’ll be brutal, the reason she’s a U.S. senator, the reason she’s a candidate for president, the reason she may be a front-runner is her husband messed around. That’s how she got to be senator from New York. We keep forgetting it,” he said.

> MORE: Media Matters has video of the O’Reilly Factor last night, as he criticizes Matthews and NBC. Bill O’Reilly argued that what Matthews said, “is a personal attack. And it is questionable whether a network should allow that or not.” O’Reilly did qualify his remarks, saying Matthews, “has a perfect right to say whatever he wants to say because he is not a reporter.”
