I can’t help but repost an earlier GretaWire posting about MS/NBC’s Chris Matthews Congresswoman Michele Bachmann moment. (What is wrong with these cable guys?) This re-posting sort of fits in with the prior postings about FNC Chris Wallace and CNN’s Eliot Spitzer.
Believe it or not, MS/NBC’s Matthews takes credit for Rep Bachmann’s success. (And yes, it is bad enough that many women do the “heavy lifting” – Matthews’ executive producer is a woman – and don’t get credit but does Matthews have to try and steal the credit?)
Below is lifted from Politico. I know some guys take credit for just about anything…but this might just top it…Chris Matthews created Bachmann??
QUOTE OF THE DAY – “Bachmann, I think we sort of created her here, so we have a sense of having launched her career from a small town called ‘Hardball,’ years ago.” -MSNBC host Chris Matthews, ahead of the New Hampshire debate
