Chris Matthews appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe this morning to discuss Rahm Emanuel‘s decision to announce he has not yet accepted President-Elect Barack Obama‘s offer for White House Chief of Staff and other Obama-related stories.
But after some questioning by co-host Joe Scarborough, Matthews said, “I want to do everything I can to make this thing work, this new presidency work.”
“Your job as a journalist is to make this presidency work?” asked Scarborough.
Scarborough, co-host Mika Brzezinski and guest Richard Stengel continued the conversation about a journalist’s role with Matthews throughout the interview. Stengel described the “constitutional responsibility” of journalists to “hold his feet to the fire.”
