Razor-sharp intelligence and commentary on the American political condition are the hallmarks of Chris Matthews' presentation. His insight into the U.S. politics and policies will make you laugh while educating you at the same time. Matthews takes an up-to-the-minute look at American politics, including his take on the divided Congress and what it means for the Obama Administration's second term agenda.
One of television’s most recognizable political pundits, Chris Matthews offers intense curiosity, razor-sharp intelligence and rapid-fire commentary on the American political scene.
Chris Matthews is not shy about asking the tough questions as he uncovers the reality behind the spin on today’s issues. As host of MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Matthews and a frequent commentator and expert analyst on NBC’s TODAY, Matthews is as entertaining as he is insightful. He learned the political game while working on the front lines as a speechwriter for President Jimmy Carter and as top aide to legendary House Speaker Tip O’Neill. In addition to being a gifted political commentator and a pop culture icon—Matthews and Hardball have been spoofed by Saturday Night Live—he also hosted his own syndicated Sunday talk show, NBC News’ The Chris Matthews Show, from 2002 through July 2013. He is the author of numerous best-selling books: Hardball (1988; updated release 1999), Kennedy & Nixon (1996), Now, Let Me Tell You What I Really Think (2001), American: Beyond Our Grandest Notions (2002), Life’s a Campaign (2007), The Hardball Handbook: How to Win at Life (2009) and Jack Kennedy: Elusive Hero (2011). His most recent best-selling book, Tip and the Gipper: When Politics Worked (2013) is a magnificent personal history of a time when two great political opponents served together for the benefit of the country.
