Somehow Objective Reporter David Shuster Gets Into Shouting Match With Declared Partisan Andrew Breitbart

Breitbart goes right after him. There seems to be more to this clip, but we begin with Breitbart, as usual, going after a liberal like Michael Moore after a Krispy Kreme donut-tasting class. Correction: The clip actually begins just after Shuster introduces him, as I see now from the full MSNBC clip. It's just a two-second edit to jump into the action.

Again: How is it that a supposed objective journalist so easily finds himself arguing with partisans?

Doesn't it sort of take a partisan to get into a shouting fight with a partisan?

On Twitter, I just observed that David Shuster is the real sin at MSNBC. Olbermann and Maddow and Matthews are jokes, but they are commentators, and all commentators have an agenda.

Shuster, however, continues posing as a "reporter." A reporter? The asshole who grinned his stupid ass off as he made 30 rude references in a row regarding the word "tea bagger"?

Olbermann and Matthews are entitled to their opinions -- this is the paradigm of cable news.

But what the hell is this "reporter" doing airing them all of the time?

He's not a reporter. He's a small-market shock jock they send to cover hurricanes and car-chases.

He should be taken off the reporter beat immediately and made a guest commentator. Lord knows he could never carry his own show.

Via BookWomanBlue.

Shuster Flat-Out Lied to Book Me As a Guest: "No horse in this race," he wrote to Breitbart.

His tweets, collected up here, say otherwise.
