Response to Original message
19. Due to the high volume of emails and phone calls to MSNBC..
complaining about the sexist remark. Apparently the Clintons aren't the only ones who were offended. I've usually liked Shuster's reporting, but his remark was truly unacceptable. Hopefully he will learn a lesson and maybe MSNBC will stop condoning sexism on the air.
