Chris Matthews Told to “Stop Talking” by MSNBC During Anti-Wall Street Rant



MSNBC host Chris Matthews was told to “stop talking” by someone in his earpiece in the middle of an anti-Wall Street rant during his show last night.

Agreeing with Bernie Sanders’ policy on free college tuition, Matthews argued that young people should have, “some sense of economic independence, don’t make them debtors basically for the first half of their adulthood”. Matthews then lambasted “wealthy people on Wall Street who make a lot of money, the traders, the speculators, they owe something back to society.”

Matthews appears flustered before asking another person on his show “Am I supposed to stop talking?”

“No,” responds his guest.

“OK, somebody just told me to,” states Matthews.

Matthews then looks to the back of the studio before continuing with his rant.

Was Matthews told to shut up simply because he was messing up the show schedule, or was the topic of his rant the real problem?

One might normally suspect the more mundane explanation, but MSNBC has previous when it comes to shutting down hosts who challenge establishment narratives.

Former MSNBC host Cenk Uygur, who went on to front The Young Turks, had a popular show on the cable network but later resigned after he was told by MSNBC president Phil Griffin to tone down his rhetoric because “people in Washington” were concerned about Uygur being too combative towards “those in power.”

Uygur also revealed that he was ordered by MSNBC bosses not to warn the public about the danger posed by the meltdown at the Fukushima nuclear plant in 2011.
