MSNBC Readying To 'Fredo' David Shuster

Oh boy, nothing like a little internal dissension to liven up the World Wide Web.

We sat of this for a few days, waiting to hear the other shoe drop, but, for now, it appears shoes firmly on foot, perhaps, though, unlaced.

It seems that MSNBC's David Shuster has put himself in hot water again (not an unfamiliar placement for him), with an unapproved audition at rival network CNN.

MSNBC Suspends David Shuster ‘Indefinitely’

MSNBC said Tuesday that it had suspended for an indefinite period one of its highest-profile anchors, David Shuster. The decision came days after the revelation that Mr. Shuster had participated in a test of a new show for CNN, a competing cable news channel.


According to The Observer, the CNN test episode featured Mr. Shuster and Michel Martin of National Public Radio. It is unclear how long ago the test took place, or whether it was well-received within CNN; a spokeswoman for that channel declined comment on Monday.


How would Shuster fit in with "The Best Political Team on Television", he's not a rabid PartyofNoican, NeoNitWit Fluffer, or foaming Right Wing Freak Show Flying Monkey.

Wonkette wondered about that, as well;
And now MSNBC is all, “You are dead to us,” and he is “suspended indefinitely” and well, if his wish was to be on ninth-place loser cable-news channel CNN, his wish may have come true! And he’ll just have to take whatever CNN offers (forty bucks a week and whatever hairs fall off Wolf Blitzer’s beard).

Heads Up there, David ...

You broke their hearts, so, if any of the MSNBC suits offer to take you fishing, you should pass on it.
