  • a live bomb shell from TV personality Chris Matthews.

  • Let me start with my headline tonight.

  • I'm retiring.

  • On the eve of Super Tuesday, he stunned MSNBC viewers with the announcement that his tenure as host of Hardball was coming to a sudden end after 23 years.

  • Right then and there for those of you have gotten in the habit of watching hardball every night, I hope you're going to miss because I'm gonna miss you.

  • It comes in the wake of allegations from journalist Laura Bassett, who has appeared as a guest on his show several times.

  • Our bass is a political reporter for The Huffington Post.

  • In an article for G Q magazine, Bassett claims that in 2016 Matthews looked over at me in the makeup chair next to him and said, Why haven't I fallen in love with you?

  • Yet?

  • Another time, she writes, he stood between me and the mirror and complimented the red dress I was wearing for the segment You going out tonight?

  • He asked in announcing his retirement, the 74 year old host apologized.

  • A lot of it has to do with how we talk to each other.

  • Compliments on a woman's appearance that some men, including May, might have once incorrectly thought, We're OK.

  • We're never okay.

  • Not then is certainly not today and for making such comments in the past.

  • I'm sorry today, Laura Bassett responded.

  • All I got to say is, it's about time.

  • This week has been really rough.

  • It's all worth it if he will never have the platform to demean and objectify us again.

  • Meghan McCain came to Matthew's defense today, and I think to reduce his entire career to this segment yesterday made me really sad because I thought he deserved a better send off than that.

  • But remembering Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca, we'll always have hardball, so let's not say goodbye.

  • But so we meet again.

  • Following a commercial.

  • Matthews was gone, replaced for the night by political reporter Steve Kornacki.
