Schuster Says "Sorry" to Marsha Blackburn 

Earlier this week, the Flyer posted a clip of MSNBC's David Schuster flustering Rep. Marsha Blackburn by asking her the name of the soldier most recently killed in Iraq from her district. Blackburn couldn't answer the question.

Now, as it turns out, Schuster couldn't answer it correctly either ...

From MediaBistro: David Shuster just took to the air on MSNBC to apologize for an earlier segment, in which he asked Rep. Marsha Blackburn to name the last person from her district who died in Iraq. The original transcript:

Blackburn: "The name of the last soldier killed in Iraq uh -- from my district I -- I do not know his name ..."

Shuster: "Okay, his name was Jeremy Bohannon. He was killed August the 9th, 2007. How come you didn't know the name?"

Turns out Bohannon wasn't from Blackburn's district, but rather from a neighboring one.
