I wanted to post this last month but I shelved it, thinking it was unimportant, and then today I decided to write a post about it because it bugs me how this guy Salahi is being treated. While watching Hardball with Chris Matthews one night, I was surprised to see him devote half of his show to the Salahi couple and how they got into the White House. Roxanne Roberts admits she became alarmed after she heard the name:
Her "head shot up" when she heard the name. She also said they looked "sketchy". How do they look sketchy? Or is it just the name that's sketchy?
Today Dylan Ratigan made an excellent comment:
I wonder if Salahi would be treated this way if his name was Smith. The media's attention on the Salahi couple seemed sensationalist, the kind of journalism I expect from People, not MSNBC, "the place" for politics. Maybe Chris should have spent that time talking about Martha Coakley and asking if there's any chance she would lose the Senate race.
