MSNBC has reached a new low in political reporting. David Shuster referred to Chelsea Clinton being “pimped out” by the Clinton campaign. He offered a Chris Matthews sort of apology on Morning Joe this morning. Like Chris Matthews – it was a non- apology.
MSNBC has consistently attacked the Clinton campaign. Matthews has been the most egregious. And when Matthews was forced into his non-apology David Shuster praised him as a brilliant journalist and suggested that he did not need to apologize. MSNBC should stop pimping these ‘good old boys.’Matthews, Russert, Scarborough, and Shuster have embarrassed the network.Well, I should rephrase that – No one at MSNBC seems to be embarrassed about anything. It is a sad day for a real journalist like Brian Williams – he is forced to associate with the lesser beings.
