Unfortunately for NBC reporter David Schuster, an angry mother is a lot less appeasable than an angry Presidential front-runner. According to the Times politics blog, The Caucus, Schuster was suspended for his on-air comment on Thursday that “[Chelsea] Clinton had been ‘pimped out' to make calls to super-delegates on behalf of her mother.” Despite Schuster's on-air apology, Hillary Clinton sent a letter to Steve Capus, head of NBC, to “convey the depth of [her] feeling” on the incident and her dissatisfaction with NBC's response - “temporary suspension or half-hearted apology.”
Hillary referenced a pattern of inappropriate behavior by NBC and MSNBC, and wrote that she will always be a mom before a public official.
