Chris Matthews: Obama Shouldn’t Attack Cable News, We ‘Shared His Hope’

MSNBC host Chris Matthews disagreed with President Obama for his criticism of cable news on Tuesday night, arguing that some on cable “shared his hope.”

“I think he [Obama] made a mistake tonight about cable television. I think there are a lot of people, at our network especially, who have hoped, and in fact shared his hope with regard to the end racial division and the need for continuing that hope, for the aspiration, and not at all benefited from it. And also, about bipartisanship, I think there are, a lot of us, I think who believe we’ve got to have this government work better together and he and his Republican opponents have got to sit down and cut some deals. And so I don’t think it’s fair to say that everybody benefits from division, I think he’s made a mistake on that.”
