MSNBC’s Hardball pontificated ad nauseam Monday night about the snowflake piece in The New York Times expressing hurt feelings about liberal journalists being held accountable for past statements they’ve made over the years. Host Chris Matthews tag-teamed with Jeremy Peters (co-author of the article) and Mother Jones hack David Corn to go after media criticism as “authoritarian,” “dirt ball politics,” and the kind of thing that will lead to people getting hurt.

Matthews sounded the alarm in a tease by calling out the fact-based operation to put a spotlight on old statements by reporters that are controversial and should be addressed to be “dirt ball politics” of “Trump allies...out unleashing dogs on journalists now, pointing together oppo research and compiling dossiers of potentially embarrassing social media posts all in an attempt to try to discredit, intimidate, whatever, chill reporters.”
