MSNBC host Chris Matthews has joined the voices on the left seeking to blame conservative talk radio and the right for Jared Loughner’s deadly rampage in Arizona, linking radio talkers Michael Savage and Mark Levin to the tragedy.
In a discussion with two liberal talk radio hosts on “Hardball” Tuesday night, Matthews essentially blamed Savage and Levin for creating a climate of hate that led to the Tucson shootings that killed six and injured 14, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
Savage told Newsmax that Matthews’ remarks constituted “malicious libel.”
