Hardball with Chris Matthews (1997– )
The Daily Caller, citing two unnamed sources, first reported the situation of the female staffer, who was an assistant producer on the show Hardball With Chris Matthews, which at the time was on CNBC.
"In 1999, this matter was thoroughly reviewed and dealt with. At that time, Matthews received a formal reprimand," an MSNBC spokesperson told NBC News.
Matthews was accused of making inappropriate jokes and comments about the female staffer in front of...
With that resumé, a piercing and deeply felt story of an American icon at the height of her grief isn’t the obvious next step. Then again, maybe a fraught, complex, and ineffably humanizing portrait of Jackie Kennedy in the immediate aftermath of her husband’s assassination — a portrait designed to liberate the former First Lady from the petrified
Barbra Streisand is standing with Meryl Streep, who used her acceptance speech at Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards to criticize Donald Trump for lacking empathy and infamously mocking a disabled reporter in 2015.
A day after Streep delivered her blistering rebuke of the president-elect, Streisand called in to Hardball With Chris Matthews and expressed her solidarity. “I thought that said what she said beautifully,” Streisand remarked.
Regarding Trump’s ridiculing of journalist Serge F. Kovaleski 14 months ago, Streisand added, “I completely agree with Meryl. It was a heartbreaking moment and so beneath the dignity of the presidency,
Screenwriter Noah Oppenheim has been brought on to write the script.

“When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he’s not alone. When the lift’s doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade-a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls.
Just like Thomas, the Gladers don’t know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they’ve closed tight. And every 30 days a new boy

Matthews told his producers during a production meeting just before Wednesday afternoon's "Hardball" that he isn't running for the Senate. Matthews, his executive producer John Reiss and MSNBC president Phil Griffin declined to comment about the news late Wednesday.
Matthews had been considered a contender for the Democratic nomination for the Senate seat occupied by moderate Republican Arlen Specter, who is up for re-election in 2010. Matthews steadfastly refused to discuss the speculation, but he had made overtures in Pennsylvania. Most recently, his brother told a Pennsylvania journalist that Matthews wouldn't run.
That clears the way for Matthews to remain at MSNBC, where he has hosted "Hardball" since the late 1990s. Although he's not the most popular personality at NBC and has been a lightning
"Maddow" has been an unqualified success for the network, which not long ago had been counted out as challenging anyone at any time. "Maddow" averaged 672,000 adults 25-54 viewers in November, compared with 565,000 for veteran talkmeister King, Nielsen said Wednesday. For the first time to date for a month, "Maddow" beat "King" in total viewers, too -- 1.8 million to 1.7 million.
"Countdown With Keith Olbermann" beat CNN at 8 p.m., as did "Hardball With Chris Matthews" at 7 p.m.
Fox News Channel dominated the cable newsers overall, thanks to wins at 7 p.m. for "The Fox Report," 8 p.m. for "The O'Reilly Factor" and 9 p.m. for "Hannity & Colmes." It was a little different at 10 p.m., where CNN's "Anderson Cooper
Griffin, who was a senior vp of NBC News in charge of both MSNBC and "Today," will be in charge of the day-to-day operations of the news channel that has made waves on and off the air in recent months. Griffin will drop his oversight responsibilities for "Today"; an announcement about who will take over exec duties at the morning show will come in the near future.
"This is a recognition that MSNBC as a business has matured to the point where this kind of full-time management was essential," NBC News president Steve Capus told The Reporter on Wednesday. "Phil was doing a great job juggling a lot of balls, but I want him to really focus on the management of MSNBC."
Griffin will continue to report to Capus. Griffin also will be responsible for network specials; Phil Alongi, executive producer of NBC News specials, will report to him.
Griffin said that the past six months at MSNBC have seen growth in ratings and revenue.
"This is more an acknowledgment that MSNBC is a bigger and bigger part of NBC News in terms of revenue, image and the place for news," Griffin said. "It needs full-time attention."
It's been quite a year for MSNBC, which has seen its primetime ratings jump 54% on the strength of shows including "Countdown With Keith Olbermann." It also has garnered a new interest in and cooperation from such NBC News talent as Brian Williams, Tom Brokaw, David Gregory and Andrea Mitchell, who have appeared regularly on MSNBC. Mitchell and Gregory have their own daily programs; Williams, Brokaw and the late Tim Russert regularly appeared during primary coverage.
The integration with NBC News, which had always been talked about but never fully occurred until recently, became literal in the past year when MSNBC left its longtime home in Secaucus, N.J., for new quarters with a state-of-the-art newsroom at 30 Rockefeller Plaza. Griffin's influence has been seen in front of and behind the camera.
Going forward, Griffin said that MSNBC wants to continue its strategy of focusing on political news as well as skew younger than its cable news competitors. He wants to grow the audience as well.
"We want to be where we are: smarter, younger, more interesting, more entertaining -- all of those elements," Griffin said.
A 25-year veteran of NBC News who has been with the channel since July 1996, Griffin was named senior vp in April 2005. Before that he was vp primetime programming at MSNBC as well as producing "Hardball With Chris Matthews" from 1999-2004. He has also been a senior broadcast producer for "NBC Nightly News With Tom Brokaw" and in 1995 led NBC News' coverage of the O.J. Simpson trial. He also worked for "Today" and began his career at CNN in 1980.
The Emmy-winning Reiss had been without a permanent assignment at NBC News for almost a year since he was reassigned as executive producer of "NBC Nightly News With Brian Williams."
Reiss also will take on a bigger role with MSNBC's coverage of the 2008 election campaign. Both the political coverage and Hardball jobs had been done by Tammy Haddad before she left a few weeks ago to start Haddad Media.
Reiss was executive producer of NBC Nightly News from 2005-07, winning four Emmys, a duPont-Columbia Award, a Peabody and other awards. He joined the newscast in 2002 as senior broadcast producer.
Before that, he was a producer and senior producer at NBC's Dateline from 1994-2002. He also has been a producer at Good Morning America.
