<p>MSNBC&rsquo;s <em>Hardball</em> host Chris Matthews had always been a big admirer of now-former Democratic Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane, so he was naturally beside himself on Tuesday night as he gave a news brief on Kane being found guilty of nine criminal charges stemming from a series of leaks to a grand jury concerning a legal and political rival.&nbsp;</p>

<p>After major broadcast networks CBS and NBC had ignored the story and hours before ABC buried it on ABC&rsquo;s Nightline, Matthews devoted just under 30 seconds to fretting <strong>&ldquo;[w]hat a downfall&rdquo;</strong> for the<strong> &ldquo;rising star&rdquo; </strong>Kane who was adored by former President Bill Clinton as he played a key role in fundraising and cutting ads for the 2012 Attorney General race.&nbsp;</p>
