'If it looks like Obama's getting beaten again, they're going back to the 4th inning of the Yankees-Tigers game,' MSNBC host

10/16/12, "Chris Matthews: If Obama's 'Getting Beaten Again' in Debate, People Will Switch to Yankees Game," NewsBusters, Noel Sheppard

"MSNBC's Chris Matthews on Tuesday made a rather startling prediction about viewers of the upcoming presidential debate.

"If it looks like [Obama's] getting beaten again, they’re going back to the fourth inning" of the Yankees-Tigers American League Championship game (video follows with transcript and commentary)....

CHRIS MATTHEWS, HOST: I say it’s the first two minutes. People are watching the Yankees game from eight to nine. They’re going to tune this in at nine.

JOHN HEILEMANN, NEW YORK MAGAZINE: Well, that’s true.

MATTHEWS: Anyway, thank you John Heilemann, thank you Joan Walsh, and David Corn. The guys agree: it’s baseball first if this guy blows it.""...
