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:

Brown University Cultural Leftists Demand Destruction of Classical Roman Emperor Statues on Campus

They hate western civilization.

Published

on

Left-wing racial ideologues at Brown University in Rhode Island are demanding that the school destroy two classical statues of iconic Roman emperors, claiming that the works of art represent “white supremacy.”

Amanda Brynn, Justin Han, Sam Kimball, Junaid Malik, Olivia Mayeda, and Kelley Tackett, six undergraduate students affiliated with “Decolonization at Brown,” are demanding that the school destroy two classical-style statues of Roman emperors Augustus Caesar and Marcus Aurelius.

They claim in a blog post that the statues “were brought to our campus with the goals of upholding the ideal of the ‘perfect’ white form, white civilization, white supremacy and colonialism — ideas that we believe are incompatible with Brown today.

This is not just about monuments. It is also about the kinds of people and histories that students at Brown today are taught to idealize.”

They’re demanding that the classical statues, which appear to be replicas of famous Renaissance and ancient art, be replaced with pieces created by “artists of color.”

Marcus Aurelius was Roman emperor in the 2nd century in an era of peace and prosperity for the ancient civilization, and is known for documenting the philosophy of stoicism in literature that has been studied for millennia.

Ironically, classical-style statues have been targeted for destruction on cultural grounds before. The Vandals, a Germanic tribe that warred with the Roman Empire in its era of decline, associated their name with property damage and barbaric behavior through their frequent destruction of cultural statues.

The stringent ideologues detest the glories of western civilization, and would destroy the cultural inheritance of the American legacy before it is passed to future generations. Their own liberal fanaticism will fade from history as an uncreative and empty religion, whereas the legacies of great men will endure.
