Report: David Shuster denies filming CNN pilot

UPDATE: David Shuster corrects the record.

Original post:

The Twitterverse misses David Shuster. Tee Vee fans miss David Shuster. I miss David Shuster. Nikki Schwab has some news about him, but just a little.

He still plays for the Metropolitan Media Softball League softball team, despite the kerfuffles. In fact, as long as he's technically employed by NBC, he can do that. He's on paid vacation until his contract is up, which I believe is in December.

Here's another newsworthy little tidbit:

[S]ources say, he has been telling friends that he never filmed a pilot with CNN but merely interviewed with them, which is within his right.

Apparently, however, that was still strike three.

    Gary, thanks so much for the info. Went to David's FB page and then signed the petition and sent it to Twitter. Only 752 signatures so far. We need to spread the word.

    Because Byron York's Rightwing Rag made it almost all up. It's such a lie shuster addressed it himself on his FB Page:http://www.facebook.com/?sk=messages&tid=1414265670879#!/profile.php?id=586529180&ref=ts

    I'm thinking he wasn't allowed to discuss it publicly. This was told to a
    colleague (follow link).

    I miss him, too. Makes NBC look SO bad. But why did it take him so long to deny? Not that it matters. Who cares, besides NBC? I'm thinking they were looking for an excuse. Hope someone else grabs him--or, better yet, the Big Guys come to their senses and ask him back.

    Is there any big stink anymore? I wrote them at first, but have to admit I haven't done anything since.

    Seems loyalty is a one way street at MSNBC. There were times with breaking news I wondered if the man ever slept since he was on all hours of the day. Then finally gets a show and they just kill it after a couple months for the newer guys.I want him back and will look for him where ever he lands. Hoping it isn't opposite Keith or Rachael or I'll have to DVR one of 'em.

    David addressed this nearly whole cloth report from Byron York's RightWing Rag himself on his facebook wall tonight:
    " David Shuster I'm flattered that the conservative DC examiner would choose to write about our media softball team. I'm frustrated they got nearly everything wrong... from what I wear (a t-shirt/shorts like everybody else) to how long I've been in the league (20 years, not "two) to what I've said about my work status. (Nothing, nad...a, zip.) Then again, this is the DC examiner."
