Jennifer Rubin Demands CNN ‘Mute’ David Shuster for ‘Media Matters Talking Points’
“He was misled and I don’t know how you can stand by a story if the story is wrong,” Shuster argued. “He could have put this email out and said, ‘I’ve been debriefed on the email from a Republican congressional source and here’s what they tell me.’ Instead, ABC News said that they ‘obtained’ the emails and Jonathan Karl made it seem if he had read them directly. So, the story was wrong, the attribution was wrong. And he’s still not characterizing the source as a Republican source, even though other news organizations are already doing that.”
“The story was not wrong,” Rubin disagreed.
“Jennifer, it was wrong,” Shuster replied. “Because the overall Republican point here was that the Obama administration was trying to protect the State Department — the Obama administration was trying to protect the State Department and that the White House was somehow trying to characterize the talking points or change the talking points in order to minimize political damage. That Republican idea is just flat out wrong!”
So apparently if Jennifer Rubin can’t defend her position she simply tries to mute her opponent. Seems like a loss to me.
