Chris Matthews Is Rooting for Barack Obama

Think the media bias against Hillary Clinton is a figment of the candidate's imagination? Think again.

On the eve of the crucial Pennsylvania primary, Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC's "Hardball," called Hillary a pandering liar. Well, not in so many words. But during the course of an interview with Illinois Rep. Jan Schakowsky (co-chair of Barack's national campaign), Matthews questioned whether Hillary could carry Illinois in the general election without Obama on her ticket as Veep. "Of course she would," Schakowsky replied, noting that Clinton is from Illinois. "I thought she was from Scranton," Matthews sarcastically retorted. "Or Chappaqua. I can't keep track." Implication: Hillary Clinton is conveniently twisting the truth in her greedy grab for votes.

Really, Chris, you can't keep track. Of where a candidate grew up, where they currently reside, and where their grandparents lived? You haven't done the research?

Because I know that Chris knows that Barack claims as his "home" states Illinois (where he currently resides), Hawaii (where he grew up) and Kansas (where his grandparents lived, or his mother was born. I'm not sure. But then, I'm not Chris Matthews.). Oh, and let's not forget the entire continent of Africa.

None of which Matthews mentioned in his broadcast. Which some might call "obscuring the facts."
