Chris Matthews: Bush’s F#&!*n’ Ranch!

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews ran afoul of censors by using “the f-word” during a Wednesday appearance on the Imus in the Morning show.

Matthews, the fast-talking and brash host of the popular MSNBC show Hardball was praising former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani’s 2008 candidacy when he went on a rant about “city guys” like Giuliani versus the “southerners” such as President George W. Bush, who run for national office.

Matthews: “We love good mayors because we love our cities and Giuliani is a city guy . . . I’m so sick of Southern guys with ranches running this country. I want a guy to run for president who doesn’t have a f***ing ranch . . .”

Imus: “Did we bleep that out of there? . . . What were you swearing for?”

Matthews: “I’m sorry.”

Imus: “If you were on Meet the Press would you say that? Of course not.”

Matthews: “I think I said something like that on my show once.”

Imus: “Yeah, your show, but nobody watches your show.”

Matthews: “Would you stop?”

Imus: “I actually have several million people that advertise that I can lose as a result . . . There’s something wrong with you.”

Apparently, Imus’ national radio show which airs with a tape delay “beeped” out the expletive, but MSNBC did not catch it.

Earlier in the interview, Matthews said he likes Giuliani and thinks he could win the presidency in 2008. He qualified praise for Giuliani by saying, “but there’s a little bit of fascist in him.”
