Chris Matthews was on a roll last night. First it was the fawning interview with Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz on her new role as the DNC Chairman, then it was this segment about Donald Trump, where he compared Fox News to being a roach motel for Republican candidates.
Matthews: By the way, working at Fox has kind of turned out to be kind of the roach motel. I mean anybody who’s going over there to work seems like they’re getting the sticky stuff on the floor over there. They haven’t been able to come back.
Any real or perceived implosion by prospective Republican candidates as a result of their appearances on Fox would be of their own doing and has nothing to do with being associated with Fox. But for liberals like Matthews any chance to link conservative or Republican failure to Fox, no matter how much it strains credulity, is just too good to pass up.
But who needs real facts when you have Chris Matthews?
