Lies, Damn Lies, and MSNBC

In the past I and others have noted the problematic relationship MSNBC's David Shuster has had with the truth. Yesterday Tom Maguire absolutely destroyed what minimal amount of credibility that "reporter" had left (at least outside the fever swamp of Obermoonbatland). In analyzing Shuster's coverage of the Libby trial, Maguire leads off with:

So often I find myself asking - is it true, or is that a report from David Shuster?

Before the age of blogs, a hack like Shuster could get away with blatant bias and fabrications in their reportage. They still get away with it for the most part, but at least today such distortions of news coverage are documented and available in the public domain.
