The Jezebel Chris Matthews story is driving me crazy. I don't especially like Chris Matthews or anything, but the disingenuous slant of the story is bugging me like crazy.

Chris Mattews asks Andrea Mitchell if women really are concerned about domestic violence as a political issue.


It is not Chris Mathews making this statement as himself, it is not him saying "women don't care about domestic violence", it is him asking a ‘duh’ question of Andrea Mitchell so she can respond to it and take it where she chooses, and illustrate something for the audience. This is something he, and many hosts, do pretty regularly.

This is a case where Katie or whoever tossed her this story, chose to misunderstand what is obviously going on for the sake of a story. And it is driving me crazy.
