Of all the many political topics that Chris Matthews loves talking about, the subject of the Kennedy clan and its impact on American life always seems right near the top.
(One of ten trillion examples: “This is bigger than Kennedy,” Mr. Matthews said of Barack Obama’s candidacy last year in an interview with The Observer on Super Tuesday.)
So perhaps it’s no surprise that later this month, Mr. Matthews will return to the subject of the Kennedy legacy in an in-depth, hour-long documentary for MSNBC, called The Kennedy Brothers.
More from the release:
The Kennedy Brothers documentary delves deeply into the family’s saga and seeks to discover why we as a nation not only embrace the family legend, but seem to have a desire to make their story our story. It takes viewers behind the Kennedy legacy, exposing the family’s scandals, personal recklessness, and dashed hopes. The program’s insider access helps us come to terms with what this family has meant for American history—and what its absence will mean for America’s future.
