Production Wraps on ‘The Chris Matthews Show’

The syndicated weekend public affairs program, “The Chris Matthews Show” is wrapping up production after 11 years. And the final three broadcasts, airing over the next three weekends, feature 17 of the show’s most prominent guests.

The seventeen journalists include Gloria Borger, David Brooks, Elisabeth Bumiller, Michael Duffy, Howard Fineman, John Heilemann, David Ignatius, Katty Kay, Joe Klein, Andrea Mitchell, Michele Norris, Kelly O’Donnell, Clarence Page, Kathleen Parker, Andrew Sullivan, Cynthia Tucker, and Bob Woodward.

It was these, and many other guests who, since 2002, provided the answer to the show’s signature question: “Tell me something I don’t know.”

“The fact is,” says Matthews. “I look at the whole show that way. I am constantly learning when I sit with these caring, thinking, in most cases, hopeful people. No, they’re not just journalists. They’re people – like you – trying to get some grip on this surprise we call life.”

Last Night On Jeopardy!: Chuck Caps Clarence and the Comedian

Last night was night four of the “Jeopardy!” “Power Players” week, which features journalists and Washington D.C. elites playing for charity. The contestants were “Daily Show” regular and comedian Lewis Black, NBC News White House correspondent and MSNBC “Daily Rundown” anchor Chuck Todd, and columnist Clarence Page.

As usual, the “Jeopardy! writers had some fun with the categories, which included “The Daily Rundown” (about important days), “Page Turners” (about books and authors) and “Fade to ‘Black’” (clues where the answer had “black” in the name.

All three were strong competitors, with no real missteps, though Todd this miss a fairly obvious answer in the “Daily Rundown” category about Thanksgiving.

The final category was “Sporting Events,” which seemingly gave an edge to Todd, given his history with outlets such as Sports Business Daily. Nonetheless, every player failed to guess the correct answer, The Kentucky Derby, with Todd and Black guessing the U.S. Open.

Todd had garnered just enough of  a lead over Page so as he couldn’t be caught, even with the wrong answer in Final Jeopardy!, and the result was $50,000 for his charity.

Juan Williams Firing Top Story on CNN’s ‘Reliable Sources’

CNN’s “Reliable Sources” addressed the Juan Williams controversy earlier today, with host Howard Kurtz joined by columnist S.E. Cupp, columnist Clarence Page and former media correspondent for PBS Terence Smith.

While the three did not agree as to whether what Williams said should be a firing offense, all agreed that NPR did not handle it well.

‘Reliable Sources’ on O’Reilly vs Stewart

This morning on Howard Kurtz‘s “Reliable Sources” on CNN, WaPo reporter Anne Kornblut, NewMajority.com editor David Frum, and Clarence Page, Chicago Tribune columnist, discussed the recent “smack-down” between Bill O’Reilly and Jon Stewart‘s “Daily Show.” Here’s how part of the conversation went:

KURTZ: So, Anne Kornblut, I’m sure “The Daily Show” does selective editing for comedic purposes, but isn’t there a serious point here about who you describe protesters, depending on what the cause is?

KORNBLUT: Well, I guess so. I’m glad he has a new target besides Olbermann. There’s a new fight going on. Sure. I mean, look, we have to be — I think all of us here are careful about how we describe the protesters and giving them credence. They operate in a different universe. And certainly, I think, Jon Stewart’s goal in all of this is to be funny first and probably accurate first-ish.
