U.S. labor unions paid MSNBC Ed Show host Ed Schultz roughly $200,000 in 2011, and roughly $337,000 over the last seven years, according to Department of Labor documents.
Newsbusters first reported that the liberal TV talker received $190,000 from the Communications Workers of America for representational activities in 2011. CWA president Larry Cohen is a regular guest on Schultzs radio program.
The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers also paid Schultz $9,900 last year.
In 2010 his union salaries totaled a comparatively small $37,350. The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME); the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW); and the Communications Workers of America (CWA) paid him $15,000, $14,850 and $7,500, respectively.
The unions classified the 2010 payments to Schultz as union administration expenses, according to Labor Department records.
Schultzs union salaries doubled since the debut of The Ed Show on MSNBC in 2009.
The unions records, filed with the federal government in compliance with the Labor Management Reporting and Disclosure Act, show that his financial ties with unions date back to 2005.

He can always go back to his old job doing beet&beef futures reports in Fargo on AM radio.
I guess we need to check for a Union Label tag on talking heads from now on.. shame on him. nothing more than a cheap shill, a paid hitman .. send him back to being a local beet reporter in North Dakota.
Good. Unions can tie up their money on a fat head oaf and he can keep boozing until his liver explodes just before his head goes boom.
Sounds pretty fair and balanced. Wonder what they’re paying some of these other liberal “journalists”.
Look for the union label
When you are watching
The news that suits the left
Remember somewhere our union’s paying
Our wages going to buy reporters,
the Senate and the House.
It’s damn expensive but who’s complaining?
Thanks to Obama, we get more than we pay
So always look for the union label
It says were able to buy up the U.S.A
