Shuster Says Sorry

David Shuster just took to the air on MSNBC to apologize for an earlier segment, in which he asked Rep. Marsha Blackburn to name the last person from her district who died in Iraq. The original transcript:

    Blackburn:”The name of the last soldier killed in Iraq uh — from my district I — I do not know his name …”

    Shuster: “Okay, his name was Jeremy Bohannon. He was killed August the 9th, 2007. How come you didn’t know the name?”

Turns out Bohannon wasn’t from Blackburn’s district, but rather from a neighboring one.

“For that, I apologize for that mistake,” said Shuster.
