Yeah, I've Always Had My Doubts About That Bob Fosse Character

Tonight’s dog whistle that only Chris Matthews’ tricked-out hearing aid can detect? “Chris Matthews and MSNBC Now Claim the Word ‘Chicago’ Is Racist,” as spotted by Newsbusters — who are really earning their pay this week by watching MSNBC so the rest of us don’t have to. And checking their archives for even more fun:

Incidentally, any idea who else has linked the city of Chicago to government corruption?  MSNBC.

In an article titled, Illinois Has Long Legacy of Public Corruption, MSNBC discussed the fact that nearly numerous elected officials had been convicted of wrongdoing since 1972 – in Chicago.

It included this statement:

“Chicago, with its long history as a center of vice and organized crime, has had its share of official graft.”

Oh, those racists!

Heh.™
