Was CNN White House reporter Kate Bennett Chris Matthews’ paid-off victim?

Published

on

A former producer for “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” now White House reporter at Cable News Network could be the female, who received a cash settlement after she complained about the Philadelphia-born pundit’s sexually oriented banter.

Saturday, The Daily Caller reporter Amber Athey posted that a spokeswoman from MSNBC confirmed to the outlet that a female “Hardball” producer received a severance package in 1999, but disputed the $40,000 figure another source told them.

It was in 1999 that Kate Bennett, then Kate Glassman, left Washington for a 10-year stint in Las Vegas, where she married, became a mother and worked as a reporter, then editor-in-chief of Vegas magazine. She returned to DC to take over Capitol File in 2010.

Bennett grew up in Chevy Chase, Maryland and after her 1997 graduation from St. John’s College, an Annapolis liberal arts school with no religious affiliation, joined the production staff of Matthews’ program.

Big League Politics has not confirmed that Bennett was the producer involved in the Matthews payout, but her dates of employment line up with those in the situation.

Bennett did not respond to inquiries from Big League Politics.

A senior spokesperson for NBC News did not have a comment for the record when the spokesperson responded to an inquiry from Big League Politics.

Bennett is the daughter of James K. Glassman, the executive director of the George W. Bush Institute and former head of public diplomacy for Bush’s State Department. Glassman has been a columnist, television personality and media executive, including a stint as editor of Washingtonian magazine, where his daughter also was a writer.

As a CNN reporter covering the White House, Bennett focuses on First Lady Melania Trump, drawing on her deep experience as a fashion and society writer–but, also brings a serious journalism ethos to a beat that others do not.

It is also interesting that in the days after The Daily Caller story ran about Matthews, Bennett has laid off commenting on Twitter or retweeting stories relating to the Matthews story. According to her Twitter feed, Bennett was in Michigan and Canada the weekend the story broke.

Typically, Bennet has Tweeted or retweeted about prominent men, not named Chris Matthews, who got tripped up in sexual behavior scandals:

President Trump Announces New 1776 Commission to Promote Patriotic Education in Nation’s Schools

An alternative to leftist brainwashing.

Published

on

President Donald Trump announced the formation of a new ‘1776 Commission’ during a speech at the National Archives Museum on Thursday, creating a new commission that will work to instill principles of patriotic and pro-American education in defiance to left-wing school and university systems.

The President spoke of the need for the new commission in light of the vision championed by the cultural left, citing the New York Times’ 1619 Project and ‘critical race theory’ anti-white teachings pervasive throughout Fortune 500 companies and federal government agencies. (The President issued an executive order banning critical race theory brainwashing at the beginning of the month.)

The 1776 Commission will work to promote patriotic education and defend American heritage and character. It’s likely the organization will create curriculum that celebrates the American legacy, as leftists in public school and university systems work relentlessly to attack it.

Our mission is to defend the legacy of America’s founding, the virtue of America’s heroes, and the nobility of the American character,” Trump said of the Commission’s goals. “We must clear away the twisted web of lies in our schools and classrooms and teach our children the magnificent truth about our country. We want our sons and daughters to know that they are the citizens of the most exceptional nation in the history of the world.

These radicals have been aided and abetted by liberal politicians, establishment media, and even large corporations,” Trump said. “Whether it is the mob in the street or the cancel culture in the boardroom, the goal is the same: To silence dissent, to scare you out of speaking the truth, and to bully Americans into abandoning their values, their heritage, and their very way of life.”

We are here today to declare that we will never submit to tyranny. We will reclaim our history and our country for citizens of every race, color, religion, and creed,” the president continued.

The President understands that conservatives and patriots must fight for cultural power as they do for political power, an pressing priority for conservatives who desire to fight back against the cultural left’s domination of the educational world.
