MSNBC’s David Shuster suspended for suggesting Clinton “pimped out” Chelsea


On Thursday’s “Tucker” on MSNBC, David Shuster, who was serving as guest-host of the program, made a comment about Chelsea Clinton and the Clinton campaign that was irresponsible and inappropriate. Shuster, who apologized this morning on MSNBC and will again this evening, has been suspended from appearing on all NBC News broadcasts, other than to make his apology. He has also extended an apology to the Clinton family. NBC News takes these matters seriously, and offers our sincere regrets to the Clintons for the remarks.

    Shuster a devout liberal feels the wrath of the Clinton machine and gives us all a fresh lesson on the Fairness Doctrine. Free speech has a price even (especially) if you speak the truth.

  2. Did you think that Mitt Romney was pimping out his five sons during his campaign?

    Short answer yes. Longer answer is the pols use their family to invoke imagery of family and in case of kids youth. Bottom line the context and intent of the phrae in this case had nothing to do with pimping as in Chelsea was a whore. It has everything to do though with the out of character presentation bt HRC. She is a true pol and has played the kid card since the hubby card is actually causing problems. Bottom bottom line threatening the network over this is wrong. Bottom bottom bottom line is this. You bring your family in to the light they get shined upon. This is the same woman who took some pains not to shine on her daughter back in the day.
