MSNBC's Shuster Tickled Pink by Green Hoax

MSNBC's David Shuster declared yesterday's fake Chamber of Commerce presser at the National Press Club the "Best prank of [the] week" on his Twitter page shortly before 5:30 p.m. EDT today. He added a link taking readers to the left-leaning blog Talking Points Memo.

A group of liberal environmentalist activists punked some journalists by throwing a press conference claiming to represent the Chamber of Commerce. In the fake presser, the pranksters claimed that the Chamber was reversing its opposition to so-called cap-and-trade legislation.

In a follow-up Tweet, Shuster added:

Funny how the "real chamber of commerce" guy mad about the "hoax newser" wouldn't answer climate change questions

No word if Shuster would find American jobs lost due to cap-and-trade regulation to be equally "funny."
