Video: Chris Matthews grabs tweezers, plucks biased splinter group

Good for Chris Matthews and his "Hardball" team:


MSNBC's Chris Matthews Corrects and Discredits FRC Misinformation [PHB]

Thanks to everyone who emailed, tweeted, blogged, and pushed back against Tony's continued lies and misrepresentations! While it's easy for us to get annoyed when media figures let things like this slip, the reality is that most people in the mainstream media are not nearly as versed in the complex "culture war" minutiae as we hyper-motivated LGBT activists are. Tony and his ilk know and rely on this fact. So it's up to us to keep our eyes and ears open, and not let any fallacious push, no matter how minor or major, go by unchecked. Many in the mainstream media want us to do this work, filling in their holes with our unfakebale, finely-tuned awarenesses.
