Obama Slams Chris Matthews and Cable News in a Joke During an Interview

During an interview at West Chester University (just outside Philadelphia, PA) with Chris Matthews on Hardball: College Tour, Obama was asked, “At any time in this campaign, did you have a chuckle … something … that you just went to bed laughing about.”  Obama responded with, “Oh, I think that happens once a day, but then I stopped watching cable news.”  Matthews responded, “Oh.”

Here’s a video clip of that part of the interview:

And, here’s another clip from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, with a little back and forth between Matthews and Obama, as well as Stewart’s commentary: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UNMZZzd1wts.

I’ve gotta say, I liked this from Obama – the media needs to be put in it’s place every once in a while, and although it was a joke, Matthews’s reaction (especially the tone of the “oh” and his face, and then him just trying to go on) was priceless.

Done Laughing,
