Chris Matthews appeared on Countdown to further comment on Kevin James’ appearance on Hardball where Matthews was, well, less than appeasing:
Chris is onto something here when he says these buzzwords are meant to “shut you up.” But it’s not something exclusive to politicians. The media itself is fairly guilty of it, and so are we as individuals. Look in internet forums and on comment threads that dredge on and on. Eventually, and sometimes hastily, conversation breaks down into aspersions.
On a related note, I have to ask: what is the purpose of Chris Crain’s commentary on the clip, if not to out Kevin James to the media? Chris, I thought you were better than that.
