MSNBC's David Shuster Grills A Cheney Apologist

Shuster-Christie-Cheney David Shuster has been filling in for Tucker Carlson and today he put the screws to Ron Christie, former aide and apologist for Vice President Dick Cheney. Watching this clip I got the feeling that I was watching a real journalist at work as Shuster not only asks Christie hard questions, but follows up and calls him on his talking points and misinformation. Christie insinuates that Cheney's role as President of the Senate somehow outweighs the job of VP and that the only reason Cheney is refusing to comply with the law is to insure the solvency of the Office of the Vice President as if it were somehow in danger. The topic turns to Scooter Libby and Shuster wasn't having any of Christie's spin:

Shuster: You're a great guest, you're a great guy, but on the politics and the law in the Scooter Libby case, you're wrong."

David Shuster has done some great work on "Countdown" with Keith Olbermann and it's obvious he's been taking notes. MSNBC would do well to consider moving Tucker out of the way to make room for a real journalist to take over this time slot.
