MSNBC ending Ed Schultz's weekday show
Politico ^ | 3/13/13 | DYLAN BYERS

Posted on 03/14/2013 6:16:40 AM PDT by jimbo123

MSNBC host Ed Schultz announced tonight that, as of April, he will no longer host his weeknight primetime show. But Schultz will stay with the network, hosting a two-hour program on Saturday and Sunday nights, he said.

-snip-

Sources at MSNBC told POLITICO that that was a very generous interpretation of events. Schultz was pushed out to make way for new talent, they said.

Interesting . . . I find it amazing that this lying slob makes as much money as he does spreading venom to his audience of 4 or 5 nightly viewers.

Hmmm, will his spot be taken over by Melissa Racist-Perry?

This show was a freakin’ joke. But how Ed has to go but Mathews or Sharpton stays on is beyond me. LSDNBC.

Probably co-hosting a show called “Hannity & Schultz”

I know it’s fun to make fun of this guy’s ‘2 or 3 viewers’; but the awful truth is that he draws 800,000 viewers every night in prime time (more than ‘Hardballs’)...something I find pretty damn scary.

I remember when Rush referred to Mr. Ed as “Sergeant Schultz” and Sheila (”Clueless”) Jackson-Lee leaped to his defense, accusing Rush of racism or something.

The Sargent Schultz character was nice man working for the wrong side. He made toys before the war. Ed, from what I can tell is a nasty, foul mouthed man.

MSNBC has put themselves in a box by putting Sharpton on the air. The will have to buy him into “voluntarily” leaving. There is no way they can force him out without incurring the wrath of his constituency.

Special Ed is getting a Saturday show so 83 viewers have some place to go.

“... moving to Saturday and Sunday from 5 to 7 PM.”

I’m pretty sure the last time I turned the TV on during that time slot, all I could find was QVC, reruns of Hew Haw, and “snow”.

I usually avoid all Ed Schultz threads because I believe he really is that irrelevant. But I read this one because I knew it would humor me. And it did. :-)

Thanks for posting.

This is Ed Schultz on Dick Cheney....what an ahole

“You’re damn right, Dick Cheney’s heart’s a political football,” Schultz said in remarks recorded by the media blog Radio Equalizer. “We ought to rip it out and kick it around and stuff it back in him.”

Would not surprise me one bit except for the fact that the no-talent Hannity would never stand for sharing the title. Faux News is becoming indistinguishable from all of the other offices of the Rat Propaganda Ministry.

Who is Ed Schultz?


Ed is a dog shooting, wife beating, stupid, blow hard, fumble ball wanna’ be, ugly, drunken, hickey on a hemorrhoid; probably obowelmie’s.

Just one man’s opinion...

The MSNBC studios better make sure Big Ed passes through a metal detector each time he shows up for work. Remember, he previously threatened to burn the studio down a while back due to another perceived slight. When they finally DUmp him, it wouldn’t surprise me if he goes postal. He sure isn’t making any money with his no-rated radio show.
