Matthews Re-Ups With MSNBC

matthews_3-23.JPGThe New York Times’ Bill Carter reports MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews is staying with the network, in a deal set to last “at least four years.”

The terms of the deal were not disclosed, and one unnamed executive said, “Whether he took a slight cut or got a slight raise, it’s nobody’s business.”

Matthews had been considering a Senate run in his home state of Pennsylvania, but told his staff January 7 he was staying at MSNBC. Matthews was clear in the article that he hadn’t used the possibility of leaving as a negotiating tool. “I think it’s unfair people think like that,” he said. “That’s sacrilegious.”
