MSNBC reporter David Shuster suspended MSNBC reporter David Shuster has been suspended by the network, following the "pimped-out" comments he made about Chelsea Clinton. The decision was made, after officials in Hillary Clinton's camp raised the possibility of punishing the network by pulling out of a planned debate in Cleveland. You can watch the video segment below.

 During a coverage of the presidential race yesterday, while discussing the role Chelsea Clinton plays in her mother's campaign, David Shuster asked "Doesn't it seem as if Chelsea is sort of being pimped out in some weird sort of way?" MSNBC announced today that it had temporarily suspended anchor Shuster from all NBC news broadcasts, except to offer his on-air apology for what he said about Chelsea Clinton. "NBC News takes these matters seriously, and offers our sincere regrets to the Clintons for the remarks," MSNBC spokesman Jeremy Gaines said.

 Shuster did apologize today, and was quoted saying "All Americans should be proud of Chelsea Clinton. And I am particularly sorry that my language diminished the respect and regard she has earned from all of us and the respect her parents deserve in how they raised her."
