Can You Say That on TV?

MSNBCB_7.13.jpgHere’s why we follow @HowardKurtz on Twitter – when we don’t have the volume up, he does:

MSNBC guest just talked about “investigating Bill Clinton for a blowjob.” Didn’t know you could say that on TV. Shuster grimaced, apologized

Here’s what happened — around 3:49pmET a guest was making her point during a debate over this story:

“And your idea is that after investigating Bill Clinton for a blowjob for like five years, we shouldn’t investigate the huge, grossly illegal things that were done under the past administration.”

David Shuster wrapped it up after that.

Shuster: We appreciate you both coming on and um, Tamron…

Tamron Hall: I’m sure Marci apologizes for the choice of words, she’s very passionate about it and things happen…

Shuster: We all say things sometimes when we’re passionate that we don’t intend, especially on a dayside, family-oriented cable television news network…

Hall: I’m sure she apologizes, and we do, too.
