NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) - MSNBC correspondent David
Shuster will serve a two-week suspension for comments that
angered the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.
NBC News President Steve Capus confirmed on Thursday that
Shuster will be back to work on February 22. The suspension
began last week when Shuster, filling in as guest host of
"Tucker," wondered aloud whether Chelsea Clinton was being
"pimped out" by the campaign.
Shuster and NBC News apologized over the air and personally
to the Clinton campaign and to Chelsea Clinton. It didn't stop
a firestorm of criticism against MSNBC, which has been seen in
some quarters as being anti-Clinton. MSNBC host Chris Matthews
has been criticized by the Clinton campaign.
