Schultz Still Accusing O'Keefe Of Trying To 'Tap' Phones

MSNBC reprimand coming for Ed Schultz?  

Five full days after MSNBC rapped David Shuster's wrists for improperly accusing James O'Keefe of attempting to "tap" Sen. Mary Landrieu's phones, Ed Schultz has pulled the same stunt.

Here was Schultz, teasing an upcoming segment on his show tonight:

ED SCHULTZ: Coming up: Sean Hannity has found a way to compare those accused of trying to tap a senator's phone to a TV show, To Catch A Predator.  Yeah? That makes Psycho Talk, for sure.

Tell us, Ed: who in a position of legal authority has accused O'Keefe & Co. of "trying to tap a senator's phone"?   

Shuster not only was reprimanded by his bosses; he had to humbly back down when confronted by Andrew Breitbart.  We say, Ed: retract or be wrist-rapped!
