In other not-news, Tweety continues to treat the Politicon as a credible news source.
“He uses you like he’d use Drudge or somebody,” Chris Matthews said to Politico’s Jonathan Martin on Hardball.
A stunned Martin had no response for why Cheney has been so willing to give Politico “exclusives.”
“You’d have to ask the Vice President, Chris,” Martin responded, “I’m not sure.”
Matthews kept pressing the issue:
MATTHEWS: I mean, he’s got his own news conduit.
MARTIN: You know, we aggressively report on both sides.
MATTHEWS: It’s not reporting. He feeds you this stuff. …He’s feeding you guys this crap. What’s he call up and say? “I got a hot one for you, Jon. Can you take — what’s your email address?” Is that what he does?And you keep having them on your show. Idiot.
