Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “Chris Matthews Criticized For Elizabeth Warren Interview”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

MSNBC host Chris Matthews sparked criticism on Tuesday night for interrogating Elizabeth Warren in an interview following the Democratic debate, during which he pressed her to explain why one should believe Mike Bloomberg’s accusers over the former Mayor himself.

During the South Carolina debate, Warren grilled the former Mayor on a lawsuit in which a female employee claimed he told her to “kill it” when he discovered she was pregnant. Bloomberg repeatedly stated he never said that, but Warren made it clear she believed his accuser.

Matthews questioned Warren on the confrontation, stating, “Do you believe that the former Mayor of New York said that to a pregnant employee?” Later asking, “And why would he lie, just to protect himself?”

Matthews is now facing criticism for his refusal to accept that a man would lie about harassment and for his inability to understand why Bloomberg would deny the accusation.

Shaunna Thomas, co-founder of the women’s advocacy group UltraViolet has even requested that MSNBC fire their host, stating, “MSNBC needs to fire Chris Matthews. Today.”
