MSNBC and me

I felt compelled, as someone who has directed many shows for NBC to write the following letter to Chris Matthews after his infantiled comments on his show HARDBALL.

Dear Mr. Matthews:

To equate an American media professional like Michael Moore to Osama Bin Laden is not only a demonstration of sleaze journalism at its worst, it is downright cowardly and un-American.

Your lack of professionalism and decorum are depressing to not only fellow media professionals, but all Americans with a conscience.

I can only imagine that the flood of response you are no doubt receiving about this transgression of yours only fuels your desire for more controversy, ratings, fame.

I have directed many episodes of NBC programming. Shame on NBC for not firing you outright, and shame on you for calling yourself a news professional. I call on you to apologize to Mr. Moore on the air, and resign immediately.
