Shuster on PimpGate: 'I Was Thrown Under Bus to Pay for Sins of the Father'
Though he claims to have no regrets, David Shuster certainly feels that he was used as a scapegoat for the previous indiscretions of fellow employees at the cable news network.
TVNewser's Gail Shister reported Friday:
Despite his gaping sword wound, David Shuster has no bitterness toward MSNBC.
"Does it bother me that I was thrown under the bus to pay for the sins of the father? No," he says in an exclusive interview. "As somebody who's covered politics for a while, I understand all the forces that were in play."
"I'm aware of the long list of complaints the Clinton campaign had about people from MSNBC" (like Hardball host Chris Matthews), says Shuster. "Tensions were clearly building. I was at the wrong place at the right time, or the right place at the wrong time. I donâ€™t [sic] know which."
