Chris Matthews Airs Two DADT Segments

Chris Matthews Airs Two DADT Segments

Hardball host Chris Matthews aired two segments about the "don't ask, don't tell" policy on his MSNBC show Tuesday evening.

In the first segment Matthews delivered an opinion, saying that the right to serve in the military has been essential in eliminating bias toward other groups, as it will be for gay Americans.

"Military service was one reason prejudice began to die," Matthews said. "It's hard to deny a person acceptance when you know firsthand how they've given for our country."

Next, Matthews spoke with Air Force veteran Matthew Alexander and former West Point cadet Katherine Miller, who resigned because of the discriminatory policy last month. Matthews expressed doubt that 60 votes exist in the Senate to stop a Republican filibuster of the National Defense Authorization Act, which houses a "don't ask, don't tell" repeal.
