Huffington Vs. Russert

Scuttlebutt that Tim Russert has had Arianna Huffington blacklisted from NBC over comments about him in her new book. There are several passages in Right is Wrong about Russert, calling him (among other things) “one of the temple guards of conventional wisdom” and a “conventional wisdom zombie.” Huffington was reportedly un-booked from two NBC shows, but she’s talking everywhere else about the tome. We love a good media scandal. Also, we just wanted to use the word scuttlebutt.
