Dec. 5th - Chris Matthews' SOFTBALL interview with Obama.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews interviewed Obama on Thursday, Dec. 5.
Obama was at American University to promote his disastrous healthcare law. He was particularly interested in promoting it to the young people upon which the insurance exchanges heavily rely. Matthews allowed Obama to make his self-serving pitch with no tough questions. As usual, Matthews played his part as government shill rather than a legitimate news reporter and journalist.
In the sham interview, Obama opined that the media never seems "interested in government success
stories." “When we do things right, they don’t get a lot of attention,”
Following is a brief excerpt of that interview:
OBAMA: That’s not — that’s not something that’s
reported about. If, on the other hand, you’ve got an office in
Cincinnati, in the IRS office that — I think, for bureaucratic reasons,
is trying to streamline what is a difficult law to interpret about
whether a nonprofit is actually a political organization deserves a tax exempt agency. And they’ve got a list, and suddenly everybody’s outraged.
MATTHEWS: 501(c)(4) is tricky to begin with, how to define it.
OBAMA: To begin with.
OBAMA: And by the way, Chris, I’ll point out that
there are some so-called progressives and, you know, perceived to be
liberal commentators who during that week were just as outraged at the
possibility that these folks, you know, had — had been, you know, at the
direction of — the Democratic Party, in some way — discriminated
against these folks.
