Brzezinski alluded to the allegations of sexual harassment against Matthews in her commentary on his departure.
“As a woman, I want to say this, I loved working with Chris Matthews,” Brzezinski said. “I really enjoyed being his colleague. And I really, I understand the important changes around this so-called cancel culture. They’re important, they’re hard, they’re painful, and in many cases they are necessary.”
“I do wonder at this point, though, as we move forward and we look at this and what happened here, if there might be a better way for all of us in the future. Where we work through this and get to a better place. For now, I’ll just say I’ll miss him every night at 7 P.M., but I remain his friend,” she added.
