On the Wednesday broadcast of his MSNBC show "Hardball," host Chris Matthews asks his network colleague Andrea Mitchell if women "really worry about" wife beaters.
CHRIS MATTHEWS: Is that close to the bone, the idea of wife beating some old -- or beaters?
ANDREA MITCHELL: That was part of it.
MATTHEWS: Yeah, but is that something that women really worry about --
MATTHEWS: -- men being brutal?
MITCHELL: The Violence Against Women Act --
MATTHEWS: At home? In the home?
MITCHELL: Yes, domestic violence.
