At this point in the campaign, most liberal journalists are panicked, but MSNBC's Chris Matthews, well, he's just "delusional," NewsBusters publisher Brent Bozell noted on the Thursday edition of Fox News Channel's Hannity. The Media Research Center founder was reacting to a montage that a) showed the Hardball host bullying a college student, insisting that the "Innocence of the Muslims" video was the real spark of the deadly Benghazi attack and b) showed Matthews complaining that conservatives are more interested in turning Obama out of office than destroying al Qaeda, and that that was out of racial animus.
Matthews was being "clearly, clearly dishonest" since he most certainly "knows [the Benghazi attack was] not about a video." As to Matthews's charge about conservatives hating Obama more than al Qaeda [MP3 audio here]:
The narrative was that this was anti-woman, a war on woman. That one isn't apparently winning anymore, so now they come up with a completely concocted racial hatred story.... Chris Matthews doesn't offer a scintilla of evidence, why, because there isn't a scintilla of evidence to back up that charge.
This is dishonesty, Sean. And this is Chris Matthews, I'll say it right now on national television.
Chris Matthews, you've become an unmitigated liar. And Comcat, which owns MSNBC, you are enabling, and you have hired, and you are paying the payroll of an unmitigated, dishonest man.
