Skip to comments.Schultz Apologizes To Ingraham: "This Is The Lowest Of The Low For Me" (Video)
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....

You’re not wrong.
Schultz sincerely apologized?! Are you kidding? How can ultra liberals, "progressives" do a one-eighty after decades and decades of maligning their enemies?
If the "progressives" are contemplating reciprocation as a way for getting right wingers fired.. well it's already been done.
Right wing hosts have been fired by the score. Lately for being "mean" to radical Muslims -- emphasis on RADICAL like the bunch that want to kill us. That's FIRED! not suspended.
The headline here is the MSM is starting to feel the economic effects (read: advertisements) of unchecked slander.
The subheadline is a liberal appologized.
But I’m not convinced he did it on his own. There seemed to be a nuance of a producer holding a shotgun aimed at his head off-camera.
I’m sure his bosses wrote it and forced him to read it.
But looking exclusively at the form it is a real apology and those are rare these days. That’s all I’m saying.
A true Schadenfreude moment.
Hey Ed, you’re the real slut and you know it.
I don’t know, if you’ve seen Ed’s show; he’s not very intelligent, but he is more genuine & down-to-earth than most liberals (in the media).
I could see him vamping over a three-hour show, saying something ridiculous like that in an attempt to be “cutting-edge” or “real”, & then (as even many of his liberal friends are criticizing him) think “I really made a complete fool of myself”.
PS- I agree w/ others that many things said about Bush/other conservatives is/was technically worse. But that’s the general rule in our society.......
If you call Obama a traitor or a communist, probably nothing will happen to you. If you say something that’s perceived as racial, you may be fired.
It is a good day when a turd like "lard a$$" gets PWNED by the boss (Comcast).
I’ve just read that Jane Fonda told NBC to suspend Schultz for a week and that’s what just they did. Sad state of the fourth estate.
He's just groveling to try and save his job. He's such a complete phony he can do it without batting an eyelash.
This isn’t scrappleface is it?
I bet he starts using a modern version of a hit from around 1960 as his theme song. It's a song popular with the Islamists (political Islam and Sharia law advocates) stationed here in the U.S.
The left is always soooooooo worried about how mean the Right is to radical Muslims. It's called Taqiyya .. give a listen
. . .
. . . .
I think the Fargo,ND market is his origins, Beets and beef are the industries.. reckun he used to give hog and livestock reports on the radio.. he still works with swine and foul uuhh fowl critters, some say. ;-)
Schultz is scum. Don’t ever expect me to apologize for saying that.
When I called Verizon/Fios to replace Comcast they told me they will notify Comcast. I said NO. I wanted the pleasure of cancelling Comcast.
(responding to your picture of ed)
Oh that’s the guy... ed... I’ve seen him. I had to almost immediately click away because I tasted vomit.
Oh, he’s insane, a freak show. As long as he’s on the air, this tells us just now nuts the far-left is, that he has enough viewers to stay on.
Nutbird of nutbirds.
The marxist snake is compounding his evil with yet another lie!
And the Emmy for best dramatic acting by an unknown talk show host is...
Beets and beef are the industries
And oil. Are you kidding? Nodac is the new Saudi Arabia. Without the terrorists.
For the commie lib media slut is a term of endearment.
Pray for America
He didn't damage anyone but himself.
While I have never watched nor listened to Ed Schultz, from what I have read and heard about him, he is a vile and inappropriate person. He sure as hell ain’t a man so I guess person is the right thing to call him.
Good on you.
Jane Fonda of 1960s Marxist-Alinsky street/campus revolutionary rabble fame is involved? Yet only a tiny few of us believe that this whole thing is a ruse.
OK he was suspended and even "apologized." Now come the demands to show good faith, bring us together, and fire Michael Savage, Mark Levin . . .
There's a petition circulating here in California. When it was described as a way of bringing the two parties together I asked the guy if his group was funded by George Soros. He answered, "That's an interesting question." I told him I want the parties split apart -- that's how our system works!
Ed IS vomit.
I’m so shocked.....completely shocked I tell you...that MSNBC had a host on who was disrespectfull. I can’t believe it. I literally can’t watch a single show on that channel. I want to vomit when I hear or see Rachel. Chris makes my head hurt. Ed is so stupid I think he sets mankind back 10 years everytime he speaks. And the guy that left..Oberman...well let me just say I’ve heard 3rd graders with sounder reasoning. Pathetic channel. But this is not news..
In fact the only reason MSNBC even did anything is because he said it about a woman and they had to try and save face. Hypocrites
IMHO I think Laura Ingraham responded very well to the gutter speech of this vile little man, providing a study case for future conservative female candidates for office.
You must have missed his part about it being on his radio show and he was ab libbing...
Hey David Schultz, how is the professional golf going? Pretty tough to support yourself on $15,000 a year isn’t it?
No, I didn't miss that -- Schultz specifically eliminated that as a possible excuse. Here is the context: "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."
That is a thorough apology.
Looks like Eddie got his butt handed to him by the “suits.”
Now he is FORCED to grovel before the whole world like the slime he is.
“actually I am impressed. Liberals never back down and apologize like that.”
I’m not impressed. He was FORCED to apologize, I’m reasonably certain. He grovelled to save his job.
Not particularly honorable IMHO.
“This is the lowest of low for me.”
No its not Ed. You hit this low at least once a week. This time you just got suspended and your job is hanging in the balance. Now you have to grovel around and try to make somebody believe you. Sounds like Laura ain’t taking your calls. Sucks to be you.
“I agree. I thought a real apology was a lost art.”
A REAL apology?
Honestly, you think he is SORRY he said it? The man says vile things all the time. Only this time, he insulted WOMEN, and got called on it.
Nothing sincere about this apology IMHO.
You are right.
“Among those calling for MSNBC to suspend its liberal star was The Womens Media Center, a nonprofit founded by Jane Fonda and Gloria Steinem”
For those on this thread who are giving this bozo “kudos” for his “sincere apology”...HOW GULLIBLE can you BE?! Wise up!!! lol
There’s nothing more disgusting than the demented when they are forced to acknowledge they are demented by having their way overpaid salary threatened.
Oh, God. Shouldn’t you be over at DU David Schultz?
Look, ANYTIME you preface an apology with “it doesn’t matter that I was blah blah blah, YOU ARE MAKING EXCUSES. This is the same as saying “it doesn’t matter I worked a 10 hour day, had a flat tire, and had to fire my assistant, I should have let you know I would be late for dinner”.
Ed can’t even MAN UP over this. No wonder his first wife sued for divorce. WOnder how much he is paying his first wife for silence on the abuse in their marriage.
In other words, he wanted a week long memorial day vacation. Since when do you dictate your own punishment when you get in trouble? Just fire his a** already. He also supposedly threatened to “burn the place down” if msnbc didn't include him in their election coverage last time around. Well... Maybe that idea wasn't so bad. When Imus made his “nappy headed hoes” comment, he was gone from msnbc. Schultz called Ingraham a slut twice, in the same rant, he should be gone.
The proper hockey saying is keep your head up bitch
Schultz claims to love truth. As far as I can tell he does. What he does not seem to understand is that the Mainstream Newsmedia is a propaganda machine and that propaganda is untruth.
Actually thats what Schultz does.. its what he does..
Little on facts very very long on diversion from facts..
The last such apology was The Greaseman’s.
Sadly his career never recovered from that termination.
will the “potty mouth” and the rest of the liberal punditry onow think twice before attacking Sarah Palin, her CHILDREN, or Michelle Bachmann with sexist vile language?
Inquiring minds want to know
Verbal rape seems to be the last line of offense in the liberal debate against conservative women leaders
Leftists lack self control. They operate on emotions rather than using their brain.
Special Ed behaves like an adolescent.
Actually, Ed, this is NOT your lowest of the low. You are a VILE man through and through just like the rest of MSNBC.
Schultz is Schultz. Sooner or later he will do this again.
This is a completely phony apology.
This scumbag lowlife does this kind of stuff all of the time, and as with most leftists, never are really sorry.
This came from the deep dark recesses of his black heart and damaged soul.
He's sorry he could lose his job is all.
If he would have done it in the style of SNL; “Jane, you ignorant slut,” he could have gotten a pass most likely.
I'm suprized so many posters here think this guy was sincere with this trumped up apology done only to save his sorry pompous arrogant typical leftist lowlife ass.
“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.”
If thats true, then the msnbc honchos had no intention whatsover of suspending him. They were going to let it pass.
It should be permanent
After Schultz delivered his statement the show cut to a commercial break. When the show returned after the pause MSNBC morning personality Thomas Roberts was now hosting.
And now he gets a weeks vacation???
Typical half-assed, excuse making apology. Will his “suspension” be a two-day holiday like Olbermann got?
