"Russert: I don’t hate Chris Matthews."

This morning on Imus, NBC’s Tim Russert denied Mary Matalin’s claim that he “hates” Hardball anchor Chris Matthews. “Chris is my friend,” he said. “I have been to his house. He has been to my house. He’s been on my show. I’ve been on his show.”

RUSSERT: I mean, the fact is Chris is my friend. He is my colleague and I mean, we both — he grew up in Philadelphia. I grew up in Buffalo. … I have been to his house. He has been to my house. He’s been on my show. I’ve been on his show. I talked to him yesterday. I was stunned by it all. And I was glad to see or hear Mary [Matalin] say she didn’t say it or didn’t believe it or whatever she said.

Digg It!
