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....

“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?
