Mr. Leg Tingle is officially giving up his journalistic responsibility. The only consolation to this is that he’s admitting it even as it contradicts his profession.
“You know what?” Matthews said. “I want to do everything I can to make this thing work, this new Presidency work.”
Scarborough and co-host Mika Brzezinski pressed Matthews on his claim, asking if it his his job as a journalist to make the Presidency work.
“Yeah, that’s my job. My job is to help this country…to make this work succsesfully, because this country needs a successful Presidency, more than anything right now,” Matthews said.
“As Americans, Chris Matthews, we are all rooting for the success of Barack Obama,” Scarborough said. “America is at a perilous time. But you just talked about being a journalist, and your job as a journalist is not to question motives. Then, two seconds later, you said your job was to make this Presidency a success. That’s curious.”
