Fuck MSNBC.

It should be called the Misogynistic Sexist Nonsensical Bullshit Corporate news with an agenda channel. I know that I shouldn't care because it's a POS cable news show and hardly anyone watches cable news, but still....

Why pick on Chelsea? If nothing else, the Clintons did a great job raising their daughter.
And aren't Mitt Romney's kids "serving their country" by going on the road with him? feh.

DAVID SCHUSTER (MSNBC): ...What is the Chelsea factor?
Here, again, are nationally syndicated radio talk-show host Bill Press and online columnist Bob Franken. And, Bill, there's just something a little bit unseemly to me that Chelsea is out there calling up celebrities saying, "Support my mom." And, apparently, she's also calling these super delegates.

PRESS: Hey, she's working for her mom. What's unseemly about that? I mean, during the last campaign, the Bush twins were out working for their dad. I think it's great. I think she's grown up in a political family; she's got politics in her blood. She loves her mom. She thinks she'd make a great president. Michelle Obama's out there for --

SHUSTER: But doesn't it seem like she's being --

PRESS: -- her husband, so --

SHUSTER: But doesn't it seem like Chelsea's sort of being pimped out in some weird sort of way?

PRESS: No. She's there -- listen. If she didn't want to be there, she wouldn't be there. I mean, give Chelsea a break. I think it's great. Again, Michelle Obama's out there for her husband. What's the big deal, David? I --

SHUSTER: Well, here is the big deal. I will give Chelsea Clinton a break when she sits down and gives an interview to somebody like --
PRESS: Oh!

SHUSTER: -- Bob Franken, because if she --

PRESS: Oh, yeah!

SHUSTER: -- wants to do all this stuff, then she should face the questions, right?More here.
Good God. Why hold back? Why not make it more clear that this station holds the Clintons to higher standards than any other people ever?

Too late and I'm sick of their apologies.
NBC News President Steve Capus sent the following statement to Media Matters for America: 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.

John McCain speaking at a Republican dinner in 1998: "Why is Chelsea Clinton so ugly? Because her father is Janet Reno."

Nice Senator Shithead.
