Accuracy in Media

Devoted Hillary Clinton supporter Chris Matthews was livid last night at the GOP for daring to have the mother of Benghazi victim Sean Smith speak at the Republican National Convention and “lie” about Hillary Clinton, when they could have done so many more positive things.

Patricia Smith, the mother of information management officer Sean Smith who was killed during the attack on the U.S. Special Mission Compound in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, gave a no-holds-barred speech that firmly laid the blame for her son’s death on Hillary Clinton.

“For all of this loss, for all of this grief, for all of the cynicism, the tragedy in Benghazi has wrought upon America, I blame Hillary Clinton,” Smith said. “I blame Hillary Clinton personally for the death of my son.”

Matthews was incensed that the GOP would revive the Benghazi issue with such a direct attack on his gal Hillary, instead of focusing on more uplifting themes:

“I don’t understand why the Republicans would choose to put this on prime-time television when they have such wonderful stories of American heroism to speak to the American people. I think it was wrong. I don’t care what that woman up there, the mother, has felt. Her emotions are her own. But for the country in choosing a leader, it’s wrong to have someone get up there and tell a lie about Hillary Clinton. It’s not true. It’s logically not true. It’s manifestly not true, she had anything to do in that case even if all the arguments of what she said afterwards, or Susan Rice said afterwards on Meet the Press are true. And anybody who thinks about it for a second knows it’s not true. And I think it’s wrong that they ruined their evening with this.”

I guess that in Matthews’ mind the deaths of Smith—along with those of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty—don’t qualify as heroism. He would rather perpetuate the lie that then-Secretary of State Clinton wasn’t culpable in the deaths of these brave men, despite evidence to the contrary, so as not to endanger her chances of winning the presidency in November.

    Pig crap, just like president Alinsky and Killary.

    It MAY be a debatable question that Hillary is directly responsible (however, she is at least indirectly responsible) for the deaths at Benghazi BUT it is NOT debatable that she lied lied lied about the video. Hillary Clinton is an evil woman and must never hold public office again.

    Uh…over 600 requests for additional security…???…not a lie. She said that she holds Hillary responsible which is her opinion, and that Hillary lied to her which is true. Not sure of Chris’s confusion on this.

    Hillary’s whole life has been built on lies. Neither she nor Obama could tell the truth if ISIS fighters had a knife to their throats, and would spare them if they told the truth, both would be headless.

    Chris Mattews is a hillary supporter to the end.He lies to support her lies.So what if she stretced the truth or in other words lied

  • First, for Matthews to decry a lie is more than laughable. As part of the prepaid advertisement for Hillary, he can’t cope with the truth, which he ha covered up for years. He reminds me of a dirty diaper that missed the garbage, because it would have infested the other refuse.

    Let’s remember, it was this vile disgusting person who extorted campaign donations for his wife’s campaign in order contestants to appear for the on his show. Matthews is right up there with Obama, Holder, and “Attorney General” Lynch.

    Mathews is clearly just a boneheaded and will always be a bonehead. He has always been an absolute jerk when it comes to being honest about anything.

    Odd Chris would make these statements – consider how he pimped Sheehan. Chris was ALL IN with Cindy Sheehan – another mother who lost a child. Chris’ qualifier for appropriate and accurate requires blaming Republicans and George Bush. Using Chris’ own standard for credibility and “proper behaviors” we learn they exclusively fall on Party lines. GEE! What a standard. Maybe someone will question him on this – inconsistency. Sheehan was pimped by Democrats for months! Chris as seen above went further. If it weren’t for double standards Progressive Liberal have none!

    The clit-ins own mathews, like they own many others, or they have somethings on him. The murdering pair will NOT make it near the White House. Disgraceful liars!

    Matthews leg is still tingling. I don’t understand why he still has a show on TV. He is watched by less than one half of one percent of the 1000 MSNBC viewers. He is just another democratic shill. What a putz.

  • Cliff

    What has Chris Mathews truly contributed to our Country?? Blah Blah Blah!???

  • orestes montane

    The only thing that makes me think that a person full of hatred and resentment, (C. Matthwes) is a TV commentator.. Is that station’s TV, hates to this country.
