David Shuster Slams Former Employer: Some FNCers "Would Cut Corners Or Steal Information...[Or] Just Make Things Up"

MSNBC correspondent David Shuster says his critical reporting about the Bush administration wouldn't have been welcome at his former employer, the Fox News Channel.

In an interview with The Hoosier Times, Shuster recounted his six-year tenure at FNC:

"At the time I started at Fox, I thought, this is a great news organization to let me be very aggressive with a sitting president of the United States (Bill Clinton)," Shuster said. "I started having issues when others in the organization would take my carefully scripted and nuanced reporting and pull out bits and pieces to support their agenda on their shows."

"With the change of administration in Washington, I wanted to do the same kind of reporting, holding the (Bush) administration accountable, and that was not something that Fox was interested in doing."

He continued: "Editorially, I had issues with story selection. But the bigger issue was that there wasn't a tradition or track record of honoring journalistic integrity. I found some reporters at Fox would cut corners or steal information from other sources or in some cases, just make things up. Management would either look the other way or just wouldn't care to take a closer look. I had serious issues with that."
