After further reading, I am inclined to believe that Chris Mathews will be back in some form on MSNBC just not for a while. And likely when he returns it will be as a guest political commentator much like Tom Brokaw who appears occasionally.
As far as his sexist comments, while not it good tastes, they are rather tame compared to BS that went down at Fox news. A lot of it has to do with the perspective of the woman who receives the sexist comment, and for most women even mild sexual comments from older men in powerful positions is outright "creepy", Other women might not even think twice about the comment if it never escalates to anything more provocative (which it generally does escalate).
Now if we go to extreme cases, such as what is OK in "The World According To Donald Trump"; there is no such thing as sexual harassment. Sex is just another form of currency that can be traded and women are free to use sex to advance their careers. If you ever heard Trump on Howard Stern, Trump has either stated directly or indirectly that he's been approach by many women who want him to make a phone calls on their behalf to other powerful men, and in return, he got sex or oral sex right there in Trump Tower... Not that what he says is true, but it shows what he believes is OK as part of daily dealings of powerful men. I tend to think what Trump says on Howard Stern is just like every thing else he says, its total BS. Maybe once he got a BJ in his office 30 years ago, and now the story has become a big fish story where every woman that comes into his office wants to blow him. I doubt his wife has any sexual interest in him.
