Will Matthews really cover Mark Kirk?

I just spoke with a Hardball producer. If you remember, I first contacted the program a month ago about the Mark Kirk issue, since Chris Matthews all but suggested Richard Blumenthal should fall on his sword over his military misstatements.

The producer said they wouldn't get time to deal with it today, considering the president's speech tonight, but might have time tomorrow.

I said, "I understand, but, considering the way Matthews treated Blumenthal, it's going to be a real credibility issue if you continue to ignore or gloss over the Mark Kirk story, which has proven to be much larger."

The producer said he saw my point, but we'll see if Hardball staffers really care about credibility.

"we'll see if Hardball staffers really care about credibility."

As a nitpicker would know, this wording suggests that the matter is, at the moment, in doubt.
Is that what the Nitpicker wishes to convey?
Just asking...

As I pointed out above, Alek, Hardball has blown this issue off for a month, while taking up with the Hang Blumenthal mob the day it broke and reporting (if I recall) 4-5 full segments on the issue. That does seem to suggest that the jury is still out in regard to the credibility of Mr. Matthews.
