Chris Mattews' memory isn't so good

Blog ››› ››› ERIC BOEHLERT

Livingblogging a Q&A with Chris Matthews from Nathans restaurant in Georgetown this week, Mediabistro's fishbowl DC caught this exchange:

On McCain campaign: "They think they can win by attacking the media. ... It's never worked before."

Hmm, no campaign has ever won the White House by attacking the media? Was Matthews not around four years ago when the Bush/Cheney campaign was pretty much built around attacking the media? Or did Cheney banning a New York Times reporter off his campaign plane not count as attacking the press?

Ironically, Matthews earlier in the Q&A announced, "I sometimes think my memory's too good."
