This is why people don't trust the media

Chris Matthews marching in a 4th of July parade. 

His wife is running for Congress. She's a former reporter, btw. From her campaign website, Kathleen Matthews for Congress:

Today MD-8 Democratic candidate Kathleen Matthews publicly endorsed Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for President of the United States.

Here we see Chris transcend mere sycophancy to attack Sanders so that Hillary doesn't have to. 

This is why people don't trust the media. This is why the cries of "liberal biased media" don't ever go away. 

This is conflict of interest.

Chris is a commentator who is a self declared liberal. He worked for Tip O'Neil and Jimmy Carter and his job is to render opinions from a liberal point of view. That is not a conflict.

Rendering opinions is one thing. Working for a candidate is another - and that's what he's doing.

Hillary saved a lot of advertising money with this interview. Chris Matthews didn't transcend sycophancy, he embodied it.
