Recently, MoveOn.org issued a petition demanding that MSNBC suspend Chris Matthews “because of his constant shilling for Hillary Clinton.”
MoveOn.org, which supports Bernie Sanders, might have a legitimate beef. Matthews wife, Kathleen, is running for Congress in Maryland and as The Daily Caller revealed this morning, many of her top donors are Hillary Clinton’s top donors.
It is worth remembering that MSNBC suspended Keith Olbermann for donations he made to three Democratic candidates in the 2010 mid-term elections.
Matthews has a blatant conflict of interest. Surely, he has a vested interest in the outcome of Hillary vs. Bernie.
It could explain why Matthews said yesterday that Bernie was a better campaigner than Bill Clinton. Matthews must be feeling the heat.
