Chris Mathews - Terrorist Not Evil Just Misunderstood
Mathews does not believe that Bin Laden and his terror network are evil, rather they just have a different perspective?:
If we stop trying to figure out the other side, we've given up. The person on the other side is not evil -- they just have a different perspective."
Well yes, like a perspective that believes it’s ok to crash planes into buildings and kill thousands of innocent people. Thats the whole point Chris they are nuts and evil and want to kill us and destroy our country……………………..
Mathews also proved once again he has a liberal bias that shapes his coverage of politics:
In a speech to political science students at the University of Toronto yesterday, the host of the CNBC current affairs show Hardball had plenty of harsh words for U.S. President George W. Bush, as well as the political climate that has characterized his country for the past few years.
Bloggers Little Green Football and Powerline are covering the latest Mathews unmasking………………
Powerline has a couple follow-up posts here and here after being contacted by Mathews.
Per Mathews email to Powerline:
I told the students that the way to deal with terrorists is the way Golda Meir did after the attack on the Israeli Olympic athletes: hunt them down and kill them one at a time and be rough about it. Every person in that room heard my say this. I don't know why the reporter chose to conflate my remarks about our need to get behind the forces in the Muslim world into my approach on how to deal with terrorists. Feel free to check with the University of Toronto students who invited me to speak.
Powerline is asking Mathews to provide a tape if he is serious about proving what was said and what was not said. Sounds like the only way to get to the bottom of this matter and I can’t imagine a journalist having issue with such a venue to prove what was said, unless of course he said it.
Why would anyone get their news from someone like Mathews unless of course they wanted to feed the same biases that define Mathews and his journalistic offerings.
Mathews has that Dan Rather quality for sure when it comes to agenda based reporting.............................
