Monday night, MSNBC host Chris Matthews opened his show Hardball with the announcement that he is retiring after over two decades at the far-left network.
Referring to MSNBC guest Laura Bassett’s op-ed in GQ magazine accusing Matthews of sexist comments, Matthews said, “After my conversation with NBC, I decided tonight will be my last ‘Hardball.’ I’ll tell you why. The younger generations are ready to take the reins. We see them in politics, in the media, in fighting for their causes. They are improving the workplace. We are talking about better standards than we grew up with, fair standards.
“A lot of it has to do with how we talk to each other,” he continued. “Compliments on a woman’s appearance some men, including me, might have once incorrectly thought were OK were never OK. Certainly not today. For making such comments in the past, I’m sorry.
“Let’s not say goodbye, but ’til we meet again,” he concluded. No Chris, let’s just say goodbye.
