TPM: Tweety Leads To Shuster's Fall
By Big Tent Democrat
Josh Marshall posits that Tweety led to Shuster's fall:
[M]any have rightly criticized Chris Matthews for his repeatedly degrading, often sexist and consistently clownish comments about Hillary Clinton. The most logical way for me to understand this development is that MSNBC is under a lot of fire for Matthews -- but Matthews is untouchable -- and Shuster's easier to can or suspend.
Josh is right as far as he goes but he overlooks some important particulars. First and foremost, imo, is that MSNBC is rightly feeling heat for its anti-Hillary/pro-Obama bias as TPM's own Greg Sargent has pointed out. This clearly contributed to the harsh punishment meted out to Shuster.More . . .
