Schultz Apologizes To Ingraham: "This Is The Lowest Of The Low For Me" (Video)
Real Clear Politics ^ | Wednesday May 25, 2011

Posted on 05/25/2011 7:49:00 PM PDT by Bigtigermike

On my radio show yesterday, I used vile and inappropriate language when talking about talk show host Laura Ingraham. I am deeply sorry, and I apologize. It was wrong, uncalled for and I recognize the severity of what I said. I apologize to you, Laura and ask for your forgiveness. It doesn't matter what the circumstances were. It doesn't matter that it was on radio and I was ad libbing. none of that matters. none of that matters. What matters is what I said was terribly vile and not of the standards that I or any other person should adhere to. I want all of you to know tonight that I did call Laura Ingraham today and did not make contact with her and I will apologize to her as i did in the message that I left her today.

I also met with management here at MSNBC, and understanding the severity of the situation and what I said on the radio and how it reflected terribly on this company, I have offered to take myself off the air for an indefinite period of time with no pay. I want to apologize to Laura Ingraham. I want to apologize to my family, my wife. I have embarrassed my family. I have embarrassed this company.

And I have been in this business since 1978, and I have made a lot of mistakes. This is the lowest of low for me. I stand before you tonight in front of this camera in this studio in an environment that I absolutely love....

If this was a conservative calling a liberal any name, he wouldn’t have made it to the end of his broadcast with his job intact.

And so many people are without jobs.

Little did they know that they could simply have become a left-wing moonbat and name-called another public figure a “slut”, and they’d have a great job with a big fat salary.

His comments about Laura is a good starting point of things he should apologize for. The list goes on and on and on.

Wouldn’t half the things he said about Bush be even lower? I mean, I love Laura but she is just a talk radio host. You’d think implying that the president is a liar, murderer and war criminal would be worse than calling a talk show host a slut.

I’m quite sure this “apology” was the required exercise for Schultz to keep his job. I doubt there’s anything actually heartfelt about it.

I thought his call for war against “the forces of evil the, conservatives in this country” at the DC rally last fall was worth an apology at the very least.

But take heart: the economy is robust and roaring. He’ll have no problem finding a good job right away. :)

I do not like it that they made such a big deal out of this...

So where is this leading? What are the "progressives" up to?

Will there now be demands from them to suspend, fire, imprison conservative hosts who utter the slightest criticism of the president or other liberals?

I appreciate the apology given. As for the larger issue, however, I still say as I said earlier today here at #30:

While Liberals are supposedly all about how genital-oriented (as opposed to personal/relationship-oriented) sex is good and the more of such sex the better for everyone, every single epithet and insult they hurt starts with a vulgar styling of the human body, sexual acts, or the promiscuous lifestyle THEY ACTUALLY ADVOCATE AND PROMOTE!

Do Liberals actually believe sluts are bad? Yes or no, Ed? On the one hand, promiscuity is excellent according to Liberals. OTOH, Liberals think (know) it's an insult to call someone promiscuous.

Just like using the slang for a homosexual sex act -- acts Liberals ADVOCATE and PROMOTE and INSIST be not only protected by law but allowable in FULL PUBLIC VIEW, such as at parades, on beaches, at rest stops, etc. --- yet they take this holy-to-them, supposedly, homosexual sex act and use it as an epithet for people they simply disagree with politically, the Tea Party.

More cognitive dissonance on the Left.

On a related note: with all Liberals preach about sex, how stupid and unworkable monogamy is, how ridiculous traditional marriage is, how sleeping around and shacking up is far preferable to what the dumb "family values" crowd is offering --- how is that Liberals, such as Maria Shriver, Shania Twain, Hillary Clinton and on and on, still feel so very deeply hurt when their spouse conducts himself . . .um, in accordance with the Principles of Liberal Sex?

Weird.

No Special Ed, the lowest of the low for you are your rating on radio and TV. You are a professional loser.

RE: "Wouldn’t half the things he said about Bush be even lower? . . . You’d think implying that the president is a liar, murderer and war criminal would be worse than calling a talk show host a slut."

Exactly.. a whole lot worse like some on the left wishing death to those they disliked.

Silence back then. Or explaining, "Oh it was just satire."

What are the "progressives" up to all of a sudden?

Anything to do with that new White House "progressive" czar that will be going after criticism of The One? I think it has a lot to do with it.

IMO he is an on-air drunk like Chris Matthews; thus the uninhibited blabbing. This one is deeply in fear of his job and career, such as it is. Let’s not popularize his name, as with Olbersomething.

A very personal, frank and clear apology from Schultz. No wiggle room language or blame shifting or talk about a “mistake.” Shultz just admitted that he was wrong and that he is ashamed of his disgraceful behavior, and personally apologized to Laura, his family, and his employer on whose time and network he misbehaved. Sadly, this is an impossible thing for most people to do. Good for him.

I have to agree. It isn’t like he simply said “I apologize” and left it at that or said “If you were offended, I’m sorry.” He actually went out of his way to admit how really low his comment was. I can respect that.

Gross. Now I need a shower.

Yeah right Mr. Schultz. I don’t believe a word of it. This is what he really wanted to say:

“My boss called me into the office and told me I WILL apologize on air or my big, fat rear end would be out on the street. What I said was a bad reflection on the company. I can’t afford to lose my job. My wife will kick me out of the house. She says I’m a big fat embarrassment to her and the entire family. She said I’d better get my fat tail on the air asap even get on my knees and beg if need be to keep bringing home the bacon. So, I’m sorry I let my vile comments slip out on the air. I’ve been in this business since 1978. I don’t know how to do anything else. I couldn’t get a job at a hamburger joint... So, I’m sorry if I offended you.”
