Longtime MSNBC host Chris Matthews announced his retirement this week following a story by journalist Laura Bassett about comments he made toward her, and his bigger pattern of sexist or demeaning comments toward female guests on his show.

On this week’s edition of Beat The Press, Emily Rooney was joined by Adam Reilly of WGBH News; former WCVB reporter Jorge Quiroga; Mike Nikitas of the University of New Hampshire; and former CNN White House correspondent Dan Lothian.
