Ex-MSNBCer David Shuster Tweet-Shames MSNBC for Silence on Bashir

If you’re a long-time MSNBC viewer, you may remember David Shuster. After he was suspended indefinitely from the network in the fallout of an interview with James O’Keefe and a pilot he filmed for CNN, Shuster joined Current TV and now works at Al Jazeera America. And Shuster’s suspension from MSNBC gave him some unique perspective from which to go after the network for its silence on Martin Bashir‘s disgusting comments about Sarah Palin.

Shuster’s first suspension from MSNBC came in 2008 when he suggested Chelsea Clinton was being “pimped out” by her mom’s campaign, and so naturally, he was stunned and confused at how Bashir suggesting someone needs to defecate in Palin’s mouth didn’t warrant any slap on the wrist whatsoever.

Shuster even went so far as to accuse his former employer of a political double standard.

Shuster’s not the only ex-MSNBCer taking shots at the network, Keith Olbermann also had some fun taking on MSNBC over the Alec Baldwin mess last week.
