HERE ARE SOME SPOT-ON COMMENTS BY REGGIE, A TVNL ADMINISTRATOR, ABOUT CHRIS MATTHEWS AND HIS SOFT BALL TECHNIQUE AS HE INTERVIEWED THE MAD PASTOR, TERRY JONES. MATTHEWS INTERVIEWED THE WOULD-BE QURAN BURNER ON AUGUST 26, 2010:

Chris Matthews plays Soft Ball with Terry Jones

Quote:
This evening, Chris Matthews interviewed the mad pastor Terry Jones on MSNBC's Hard Ball. This pious man of the cloth plans to burn copies of the Qur'an in a ceremony in Gainesville, Florida, to commemorate the attacks of 9/11. Not surprisingly, Jones was treated as if he were a rational, respectable guest, - and given air time to promote his filth about Islam. In a month so dominated by Muslim-bashing, a most deferential Chris Matthews managed to add insult to injury and promote the kind of misinformation and bigotry that has taken hold of this country. This was not Hard Ball at its best by a long shot. It was fawning, subdued Soft Ball at its worst.

The news about Terry Jones should have been swept into the nearest garbage bin when it was first reported. The man merited little more than public scorn, but, during a slow news week and with People Magazine scooping Elin Nordegren, Jones was featured on a handful of corporate media broadcasts and got his fifteen minutes of fame. I caught the Chris Matthews exchange with the deranged pastor and still am shaking my head in both disbelief and disgust
