Matthews is getting more beat up by the right wing media, which is dead silent on the Rove fiasco Tuesday night on Fox, whereas (by way of example) the Time magazine media crtic and Jon Stewart commented on the Rove meltdown whereas I did not see anything on either Time or The Daily Show about the ignorant statement from Chris Matthews.
My point is both sides showcase the gaffes of their opponents more than the screw-ups of their own side.
That is politics - Dems got tired of being punching bags and a significant section of the GOP thinks it is a double standard that anyone punches back
