Former CNN Pentagon correspondent Jamie McIntyre submits this “audition video” for the MSNBC gig to fill-in for David Shuster, who’s on indefinite suspension with the network.
McIntyre shot it to promote the Commedia dell Media charity event, which is coming up in D.C at the National Press Club on Thursday.
