MEDIA MATTERS:

On the November 28 edition of MSNBC’s Hardball, host Chris Matthews said: “Everybody sort of likes the president, except for the real whack-jobs, maybe on the left,” adding, “I mean, I like him personally.” In fact, polling data reveals that a majority of Americans have an unfavorable view of President Bush, and his overall approval ratings hover from the high 30-percent range to the low 40s.

From the November 28 edition of MSNBC’s Hardball:

MATTHEWS: I like him. Everybody sort of likes the president, except for the real whack-jobs, maybe on the left — I mean — I like him personally.

As Media Matters for America previously reported, MSNBC chief White House correspondent Norah O’Donnell made a similarly unsupported statement on the November 27 broadcast of MSNBC’s The Chris Matthews Show, claiming that Bush has retained his “authenticity” with the public.
