No more David Shuster on MSNBC, he is in effect FIRED

David Shuster Suspended From MSNBC Indefinitely

MSNBC has suspended David Shuster — again.

But unlike his 2008 suspension over comments that the Hillary Clinton campaign was "pimping out" Chelsea Clinton, which lasted two weeks, this suspension is an indefinite one.

"David has been suspended indefinitely," an MSNBC spokesperson said Tuesday morning.

It was revealed last week that Shuster had filmed a pilot for CNN; at the time, the network had said he would be "punished appropriately." After getting "ripped a new one" by boss Phil Griffin by phone over the weekend, Shuster met with Griffin in the office Monday.

Shuster also came under fire from the network after a tweet he sent to conservative activist James O'Keefe. "@JamesOKeefeIII a) you are not a journalist b) the truth is you intended to tap her phones c) it's a felony d) you will go to prison," he wrote. The network deemed that tweet "inappropriate" and muzzled him on Twitter soon thereafter.

Source has 13 memorable broadcasts of Shuster's.
