MSNBC’s Matthews Disses Colleague Ezra Klein’s Vox: ‘Let Me Deal With the Grown Ups’
Chris Matthews is apparently no fan of blogs or websites, even when they are run by his comrades at MSNBC.
On the August 8 edition of The Reid Report, guest host Jonathan Capehart welcomed the Hardball host to the program to discuss Iraq. He got a whole lot more than he bargained for. Capehart read an excerpt from a piece appearing on Ezra Klein’s Vox.com, which purports to be in the business of ‘explanatory journalism,’ but acts more as an Obama administration mouthpiece. Klein frequently shows up on MSNBC programs, either as a contributor or a guest host. In responding to the excerpt, Matthews angrily ripped Vox:
I don’t respond to that kind of stuff, okay. That’s not of interest to me. Why would I respond to something like that?…Let me deal with the grown ups – let me deal with the political people and not getting involved in the blogs and the websites, okay. I don’t need to respond to those professionally, okay. That undignifies the whole operation. And I don’t wanna do that.

Ezra Klein’s explanatory journalism outlet “VOX” has taken plenty of ridicule from conservative critics in recent weeks. Everyone from Ace of Spades to Mollie Hemingway of The Federalist has had something to say.
Klein is a frequent guest on MSNBC. Things could be awkward in the green room the next time he visits.
