Chris Matthews Is a Disgrace

Although CNBC commentator Chris Matthews apologized today for the insensitivity of his remarks made regarding Hurricane Sandy during last night's Presidential coverage, he should be aware of how deeply painful those remarks sting to those directly impacted by the storm. To that end, I welcome utilizing this blog to highlight a statement put forth by a fellow HC Alum.

A letter sent to Chris Matthews today: 

Mr Matthews,

I am a graduate of the College of the Holy Cross just like you are. I just wanted to remind you what being an alumni of this prestigious institution means. 



The Jesuits are called 'God's marines' and are known for their missionary work and dedication to helping others. It is the cornerstone of all Jesuit and other Catholic institutions to be one with God and there for others. 

Now last night you made one of the most insensitive statements that I have ever read. 'I'm so glad we had that storm last week' it read. Well, I'd like to inform you that a friend of mine, Jack Miller, and a fellow alumni of Holy Cross died during this storm. Jack was everything that you would expect from an alumni, smart, friendly, caring, giving and enjoyed every moment of life to it's fullest. I imagine that his friends and family did not appreciate your comments more so than anyone else. 

I live on Long Island as well, and have been living out of a duffle bag and sleeping on couches for over a week, as my family is in Florida. I am glad that you are glad that I am basically rendered homeless, and haven't seen my beautiful wife and two young children in days. 

But I don't expect an apology from you, because I'll be ok. But maybe you should apologize to Jack Miller's family, who in the most difficult stage of their lives have to open a newspaper and read such an awful statement from you. 

Now we've come to expect statements like these from the media, but from a man that went to such a special college that instills everything to the contrary of what you said, I am disgusted.

Please remember what it means to be an alumni of Holy Cross, and what you were taught, and please apologize to Jack Miller's family and all the victims of this storm. Maybe even come over here and do something to help, because that is what Jack would do, and that's what a Holy Cross man would do.

  1. Chris Matthews is a disgraceful, embarrassing jerk. Father MacFarland presenting him with an Honorary Degree is a lowlight for our school.
