Shuster Defends Unbalanced “Hypocricy Watch”

From Howard Kurtz‘s Media Notes column:

MSNBC’s David Shuster is an aggressive career reporter who has never been positioned as one of the channel’s left-leaning commentators. But in his “Hypocrisy Watch” segments this year, the conservative Media Research Center points out, 34 of the targets have been Republicans or conservatives — including Rush Limbaugh twice and Karl Rove five times — and only four have been Democrats or liberals.

Shuster says the group “is funded and run by die-hard conservatives with a clear partisan agenda” and that his work on the now-defunct program “1600 Pennsylvania Avenue” “was hard hitting on both parties.”

The main focus of Kurtz’s column was about Politico.com. More on that on WebNewser
