David Shuster Defends Olbermann, Blasts Fox's Lack Of 'Journalistic Standards' (VIDEO)


Referring to popular Fox News commentators Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck, Shuster said, "They don't even attempt to subscribe to the journalistic principles that were attempted throughout the MSNBC schedule."

"There are no journalistic standards on many of these shows on Fox News," he said.

Baltimore Sun columnist David Zurawik claimed that Olbermann's "Worst Person" segment aligned him more with Sen. Joseph McCarthy than Edward R. Murrow.

"That's simply not fair," Shuster said.
