Edwards Affair: Shuster Wants Apology

shuster_8-8.JPGJust after 3:15pmET, MSNBC anchor David Shuster had an interesting take on the fall-out from the John Edwards affair, which he admits to in an ABC News interview airing tonight:

There’s going to be a whole round for the next 24 to 36 hours of all the staff members who were telling all of us in the media, ‘don’t go for this garbage, the story’s complete nonsense, it’s complete bull.’ Well now these people are going to have to come out and make their round of apologies, and in the same course of doing that, in terms of their apologies to us, they’re going to rip John Edwards apart for misleading them.

Later in the segment, Shuster said something that sounds familiar this week: “You’re only as good as the sources and the people you rely on.”
