Clinton's May Boycott MSNBC Over "Pimped Out" Chelsea Remark
MSNBC may soon join FOX News on the list of banned television networks.
The Clinton’s are furious at MSNBC anchor David Schuster for his “Pimped Out” Chelsea remarks about their daughter.
Shuster was suspended on Friday for the comments.
The Clinton’s are so outraged that they might ban the remaining MSNBC presidential debates.
A distasteful comment about Chelsea Clinton by an MSNBC anchor Thursday could imperil Hillary Rodham Clinton’s participation in future presidential debates on the network, a Clinton spokesman said.
In a conference call with reporters, Clinton communications director Howard Wolfson Friday excoriated MSNBC’s David Shuster for suggesting the Clinton campaign had “pimped out” 27-year old Chelsea by having her place phone calls to Democratic Party superdelegates on her mother’s behalf. Wolfson called the comment “beneath contempt” and disgusting.
“I, at this point, can’t envision a scenario where we would continue to engage in debates on that network,” he added.
HotAir has the “pimped out” apology.
James Joyner added this on Shuster: “I’m no fan of Shuster. Indeed, he’s a total and utter hack and MSNBC should be ashamed they can’t find a more serious journalist to put on their air. But these remarks aren’t worthy of tut-tutting, let alone firing.”
