Responding to News Blogs ‘Not Of Interest’ to Chris Matthews

MatthewsApparently, engaging with news blogs aren’t high on Chris Matthews‘ priority list.

Asked to respond to a piece written by Vox’s Max Fisher on U.S. airstrikes in Iraq, Matthews didn’t mince words. “I don’t respond to that kind of stuff, OK, that’s not of interest to me; why would I respond to something like that?” Matthews said Friday to guest host Jonathan Capehart. “Let me deal with the grown ups, let me deal with the political people, and not getting involved with the blogs and the websites…I don’t need to respond to that professionally.”  It should be noted that the editor-in-chief of the website Matthews declined to respond to is MSNBC policy analyst Ezra Klein.
