Chris Matthews committed the Cardinal Sin of mainstream journalism — he described a Leftist he didn’t like the same way they do a Republican. And now he’s doing a mea culpa.
Mea Culpa. Mea Maxima culpa.
Chris ‘Tingle down my leg’ Matthews just ran into the Bernie Buzzsaw.
He is convinced that a Bernie win will lead to a second Trump term… a fate worse than death. And blinded by his Trump Derangement Syndrome, Chris expanded his ‘literally Hitler’ anti-Trump metaphor to include Bernie winning the delegate count in Nevada.
Bernie winning was seen as comparable to the Maginot Line falling.

Whatever the reason, an apology was wrung out of him only days later. One in which he pledged to do a ‘better job’ of ‘elevating the discourse’. Sure you will, Chris.
Has he ever once owned up to anything he was wrong about with Trump? Meh, probably not. But nobody on the right watches MSNBC anyway, so what does he care?

How did Chris make this kind of a faux pas in the first place? Maybe he forgot that Sanders is on the Left should be treated as an ally on his network? Maybe he forgot that there is a reason that you don’t make Hitler comparisons to a guy of Jewish ancestry?
Whatever the reason, there were calls for Matthew’s head on a plate.
How bad has it gotten?
Democrats are actually calling for Chris Matthews' resignation for being TOO FAR RIGHT.
P.S. This is hilarious.

Here is the ‘all is forgiven’ reaction he’s getting from the Left.
Watershed moment?: Chris Matthews apologizes to Bernie Sanders for comparing his NV win to Nazi invasion. “I’m sorry for comparing anything from that tragic era in which so many suffered, esp the Jewish people, to an electoral result in which you were the well-deserved winner.”

We notice Rosie O’Donnel never got to ‘apologize’ her way out of the maw of Cancel Culture. Then again, Chris didn’t have a hit show that made Trump supporters look relatable, either.
But one Jewish voice is throwing a wrench in the poor-me-victim-of-antisemitism narrative… Ben Shapiro.
One key difference between Ben and Bernie is that Ben actually LIVES as a Jew in terms of culture, tradition and (especially) religion.
Ben brings up an awkward point that the mainstream media dare not touch:
So here's the deal: spare me the crocodile tears about anti-Semitism, you ridiculous cretins. Matthews was clearly not being anti-Semitic, and you guys care as much about anti-Semitism as you do about the plight of Cuban dissenters under Castro.

Yep. Ben went there.
