What David Shuster got wrong on ‘Reliable Sources’

Former MSNBC correspondent/anchor David Shuster went on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” yesterday to talk about the abrupt departure of Keith Olbermann Friday night. In addition to getting into it a couple times with Baltimore Sun TV critic David Zurawik, Shuster got one fact wrong. He said that under Comcast, MSNBC president Phil Griffin will report to NBC News boss  Steve Capus, instead of reporting directly to NBCU CEO Jeff Zucker. But an MSNBC spokesperson tells us Griffin has reported to Capus since he was named MSNBC president in July 2008, as TVNewser reported at the time.
