Breitbart And Shuster Battle On-Air Over O’Keefe

MSNBC’s David Shuster just battled with Big Government’s Andrew Breitbart on-air over the arrest of James O’Keefe and friends for allegedly trying to tamper with the phones in Sen. Mary Landrieu’s New Orleans office.

Breitbart attacked Shuster and MSNBC for “slandering” O’Keefe by saying he had wiretapped Landrieu’s phones and demanded Shuster retract the wiretapping claim, which he did. He also attacked Shuster for tweeting that O’Keefe “intended to tap [Landrieu’s] phones.”

The interview quickly turned into a shouting match about journalism ethics. Hat tip: TPM LiveWire
