Chris Matthews Discusses Nutty Right-Wing Conspiracy Theories with Nutty Right-Wing Conspiracy Theorist

Media

Man, is it ever rich to see M. Emmett Tyrell ("Bobby" to the insiders) chattering with Tweety about the kooky conspiracy nuts on the right. I don't know if Matthews is brain damaged or what, but my God:  


Like many political magazines of differing ideologies, in the 1980s and 1990s the conservative American Spectator received donations from like-minded benefactors who supported its mission. One of the Spectator's larger donors over the years was Richard Mellon Scaife, a businessman who directed a number of foundations funded with his family's wealth, through which he could support his causes. At first, donations from Scaife to the Spectator were unrestricted, but later, Scaife wanted to direct some of the spending for stories investigating the Clintons.

According to R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr., editor in chief of the Spectator, the idea for investigating the Clintons was born on a fishing trip on the Chesapeake Bay in the fall of 1993.
