Chris Mathews squirms under questioning from Phil Donahue before the invasion of Iraq about whether reporters are too chummy with those they cover. Mathews kept his job on television. Donahue didn't. Is he a sycophantic hypocrite? How long did it take him to wash the stink of Bush's ass off his head? Is his career sucking up to the powerful good for our society or just for Chris Mathews? Comedian Jimmy Dore, political analyst Ben Mankiewicz (Host, Turner Classic Movies) and Dave Rubin (Rubin Report) break it all down on this installment of The Jimmy Dore Show.
More Stuff Happened, we make fun of it.
More Stuff Happened and We Make Fun Of It!
The Jimmy Dore Show march 29, 2013
Chris Mathews rewrites his history of cheerleading George Bush and the Iraq war.
Sober Bill O'reilly, Drunk Bill O'reilly, and hungover John Boehner calls in.
Plus- the Republican party grapples with marriage equality like its 1999.
Chris Matthews is a focus this week because he went on a tirade at a media convention where he claimed that stuff like the Iraq war
wouldn’t happen today because we have 24/7 cable news. Well, we actually did a little checking and it turns out that there was cable news during the run up to the Iraq war.
And get this, Chris Matthews actually had his own show on a cable news network during the run up to the Iraq war too! He says lots of other crazy stuff too, I mean CRAZY. After hearing this you will wonder where exactly this guy gets the balls to make fun of Michele Bachman.
Donald Trump: I used to refer to Donald Trump as Mike “The Situation” with money. But now Mike “The Situation” actually
does have money. So I guess the only thing that separates them now is ….abs. We also find out that Trump and Fredo have a lot in common.
Lizz Winstead was nice enough to talk with us. is the creator of “The Daily Show” and the author of the new book “Lizz Free or Die”, “ She writes of getting knocked up by her hockey player boyfriend in high school, spending a fortune on her dogs’ waste problems, and saying goodbye to her dying father with understated insight and, of course, humor—reminding us of its value as an antidote to both political and personal hardship.”
Plus Mike MacRae is on fire again this week with a great Mitt Romney Phone call written by Frank Coniff, and we talk with Ron Paul and Paula Dean!
