    REPORT: Chris Mathews About To Go Down in Flames Over Harassment
    January 1, 2018 By Donn Marten

    NBC continues to be plagued by revelations of sexual misconduct involving some of the network’s biggest names and another one may be about to bite the dust: Chris Matthews.

    The slobbering blowhard – who plies his trade at liberal propaganda organ MSNBC – has been the subject of another big story alleging that he has engaged in inappropriate and sexually harassing conduct and has been accused of running an abusive work environment.

    Only weeks after a stunning report that NBC had made a payment to settle a sexual harassment claim against Matthews, the Daily Caller has broken a hugely important story that the abominable newsman engaged in crude banter with women and is prone to tyrannical outbursts.

    MSNBC Host Chris Matthews runs an at times openly derisive and brazenly sexist news operation that has led at least some staffers to describe themselves as victims of “battered wives syndrome,” according to three of his show’s guests and two former producers who spoke exclusively to The Daily Caller.

    Two former NBC producers independently alleged Matthews would rate the looks of his female guests on a scale and said Matthews was so abusive that staff joked about being battered women. The interviews in total paint Matthews as a tyrant liable to fly off the handle at the slightest mistake, who was eager to objectify women and made inappropriate sexual comments appear to be a matter of course for someone in his position.


    AND

    "According to the two producers, whose combined time at the network nearly spans the existence of “Hardball,” Matthews frequently objectified his female guests and staffers, inappropriately commenting on their appearance and clothing. Matthews would allegedly use pet names like “cutie” and “sweetie pie” to refer to female guests and was constantly making uncouth and “boorish” remarks about women.

    “He would eye down a woman who walked on set or comment on their features or what they were wearing,” one former producer said, explaining that it looked like Matthews was undressing the women with his eyes. “He would objectify them and interrupt them in a way that he would never do to his male guests. He has a very outdated view of women.”

    The other producer likened his behavior to that of a “teenage boy,” alleging that Matthews would rate his female guests on a numerical scale, deciding which guest was the “hottest of the week,” and would talk about how “hot” various women in the office were, including herself.

    One host on a CNBC show was allegedly on the receiving end of many of his comments and tried to avoid being around Matthews in the office.

    “She didn’t want to be in the same room as him,” the former NBC producer claimed. “She wouldn’t want to get her makeup done if he was in there too.”

    This is hardly the behavior nor the environment that is conducive to the Democrats and the left’s holier than thou (and completely disingenuous) proclamations that they care about the rights of women.

    Additional information from the Daily Caller bombshell talks about Matthews’ hair-trigger temper:

    "In addition to the troubling behavior toward women, all five of the sources who spoke to TheDC about the workplace environment at “Hardball” described Matthews as verbally abusive. They claimed that Matthews’ outbursts went beyond normal or justifiable frustration, and former staffers apparently felt like they had to “walk on eggshells” around their “abusive” boss.

    The two former producers independently referred to incidents involved screaming at staffers, throwing objects around, and generally demeaning guests and the people who worked for him.

    “I would describe it as verbal abuse,” one former producer asserted, recalling their own experiences with Matthews. “The screaming is beyond the screaming you’ve ever heard. You just feel so under attack.”

    “He did it so openly,” the producer continued. “It’s not just sexual harassment … what are you supposed to do when somebody is verbally abusing you and attacking you this way?”

    Dumping Matthews now would probably be a wise business decision because there are all but certainly more stories that will be coming out about a guy who is clearly unstable.

    An old drunk Irishman with a red nose full of himself. Of course he's an ahole.
    Did anyone think he wasn't?

    I have worked for a lot of people who lost it and yelled etc. So what? I never took it personal. If I did I would have beat some ass not cried to the newspapers.
