    Ed Schultz would like to be more civil. Really, he would. It's just that those reprehensible Republicans, by failing to agree with him, force poor Ed to advocate things like ripping out Dick Cheney's heart. That was the Schultz's oft-repeated theme on his MSNBC show this evening. View video here.
  • Ed Schultz Mocks Conservative Lawyer Mark Levin Over Lawsuit Threat

    01/17/2011 3:36:48 PM PST · by Hotlanta Mike · 52 replies ^ | January 17, 2011 | Jonathon M. Seidl
    Last week, conservative lawyer and media personality Mark Levin threatened to sue (for defamation) anyone — especially MSNBC personalities — who might try to tie him to the Tucson shootings. He also issued a challenge to MSNBC’s Chris Matthews: If Matthews could “find any example where Sarah Palin has promoted the murder of anybody,” he would pay up to the tune of $100,000. Those statements caused Ed Schultz to double over laughing today on his radio show. According to Schultz, Levin “couldn‘t carry Chris Matthews’ briefcase”:
  • Schultz Suggests Palin Used 'Blood Libel' As 'Appeal To Extremist Christian Conservative Base'

    Call it a libel squared . . . Ed Schultz has suggested that Sarah Palin employed the term "blood libel" to describe the way her critics have tried to hold her responible for the Arizona shootings "as an appeal to an extreme Christian conservative base for 2012." Citing no evidence for his grotesque allegation, Schultz first floated it during his opening monologue. He raised it again with his first guest, Dem congressman Jan Schakowsky, and took things a despicable step further. Schultz suggested that Palin "got help from the speech from somebody who knows exactly what 'blood libel' means." Put...
  • Video: Ed Schultz Schooled on Gun Ownership by Tucson Hero Joe Zamudio

    01/12/2011 7:08:54 AM PST · by · 26 replies
    Joe Zamudio, one of the heroes during the Tucson shooting tragedy, appeared on Ed Schultz to talk of how he had a gun strapped to him, ran out of Walgreens when he heard the shots fired, and almost used his weapon but instead put it away and contained him with his body. Ed asked if he had to, would he have used his gun. Zamudio answered “you’re damn right.”

    Is Ed Schultz really this dumb or simply incapable of honesty? Within the first 10 minutes of his radio show yesterday, Schultz was bellowing about an alleged connection between the massacre in Tucson and remarks by Rep. Michele Bachman, House candidate Jesse Kelly and other Republicans (audio) -- SCHULTZ (initially referring to Congresswoman Giffords' medical condition): The latest medical update is she is responding, it's been consistent since they started to try to get responses out of her, which is very positive. But if you want to talk about the political climate in this country, if you really want think...

    The photo shows Ed Schultz literally pointing the finger at Fox News. On his MSNBC show this evening, Schultz suggested that Fox incites political violence and justified his own heated rhetoric as necessary to combat Fox's supposed dishonesty. Schultz levelled his accusation in the course of rambling, show-opening, remarks on the Arizona shootings. Schultz also denied that there has been anything violent about his remarks. After the jump, view the video--and review Schultz's record of violent rhetoric .

  • Schultz's Hysterical Math: Corporations Donate 1000x More Than Unions To Campaigns

    [snip] On his MSNBC show this evening, Ed Schultz asserted that corporations donate 1000 times more money to political campaigns than unions do. Or as Ed said, in his inimitably muddled manner,: "unions contribute 1/10th of 1% of their money that corporations put into campaigns. Now think about that: 1/10th of 1%. You got the corporate money over here you've got the organized labor money over here." How off is Ed? The National Review's Rich Lowry has documented that in the last election cycle, three unions alone kicked in $170 million to Dem coffers. So corporations would have had to...

    When you're subbing for Ed Schultz on MSNBC, perhaps there's pressure to race to the bottom . . . Cenk [pronounced, I hasten to add, "Jenk," thus adding to the headline's alliteration] broke out a dubious double-entendre this evening when speaking of John Bolton. Describing Bolton's allegedly bellicose tendencies, Cenk claimed that, if he could, Bolton would "invade Uranus." View video after the jump.
  • Ed Schultz's vicious verbal attacks on Sarah Palin's children; fair to do the same to HIS family?

    I am so sick of this loon on MSNBC and his almost nightly attacks on Sarah's children and family. Now that the news is out that Bristol purchased a house we can expect even more attacks next week on Bristol. Would it be fair to delve into Ed's family and their problems, or just learn to ignore his behavior.
  • Sharpton For Censoring Rush: 'Imagine The Arrogance Of Allowing People To Say What They Want!'

    Welcome to Al Sharpton's Brave New Radio World. A world in which the FCC would take a hard look at the licenses of stations that carry Rush Limbaugh. Al is outraged at the prospect that the FCC would "allow people to say what they want." Ed Schultz has, as I've noted, been offering Sharpton a serial stage to trumpet his censoring threats, and there was Al at it again tonight. According to the Reverend, the FCC should clamp down not merely on "explicit" racism, sexism or homophobia, but also on any of those isms or phobias in their "implicit" forms....

    David Horowitz's NewsReal Blog ^ | December 9, 2010 | David Forsmark
    In a typical loud monologue about the Republicans' insistence on not raising taxes in a recession (before an interview with "firebrand Independent" (i.e. socialist) Senator Bernie Sanders), Ed Sgt. Schultz declared: SCHULTZ: They've [Republicans] been on an economic jihad... And he didn't say, "Not that there's anything wrong with that." Isn't this the network that created the "Islamophobia" logo? Or was Schultz being complimentary? Maybe he really meant to say: "The Republicans are on a journey to make the world better, a struggle for a noble cause to promote peace harmony and justice."

    Just when you thought Ed Schultz couldn't get any grosser . . . On his MSNBC show this evening, Schultz bragged that by the time he was done with Mike Pence, the GOP congressman from Indiana would be "praying to the porcelain god." Schultz made his vulgar boast in a tease for a following "Psycho Talk" segment in which the MSNBC host took Pence to task for suggesting that Joe the Plumber had it right in 2008. View video here.

    How about that, there's someone on the airwaves more unhinged than liberal radio talker and MSNBC heat miser Ed Schultz. And go figure, that someone happens to be a frequent Schultz guest. But between his appearance on Schultz's radio show Nov. 22 and Schultz's MSNBC program several hours later, the caffeine apparently wore off for Mike Papantonio, a lawyer and co-host of the radio show "Ring of Fire," seeing how Papantonio dialed down his remarks from what he initially told Schultz. Here's what Papantonio said during the first hour of Schultz's radio show Monday between noon and 1 p.m. while...
  • Schultz Slurs Allen West: 'Ignorant'

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    On his MSNBC show this evening, Ed Schulz twice called newly-elected Republican congressman Allen West "ignorant." For good measure, Schultz said West "didn't have a clue." Schultz was incensed that West had observed that Washington, DC--home of big government--was relatively immune to the economic woes that have befallen the rest of the country. By interesting coincidence, I had occasion to overfly Leesburg, VA in the DC suburbs this past weekend, and for the first time saw what McMansions look like [see photo I snapped after break]. Now why would Loudoun County, Virginia have the highest per-capita income in the country?...

    MSNBC's Ed Schultz on Wednesday hysterically alleged Briston Palin's successful movement into the finals of "Dancing With the Stars" was a product of voter fraud. SCHULTZ: Well, Tea Party faithful aren't waiting two years to vote for Palin. They are rallying behind Sarah’s daughter Bristol. On "Dancing With the Stars" last night, the audience vote sent Bristol to the finals even though she was the worst dancer left in the competition. Now, I'm not an expert on dancing, there are many that have, a lot of different things going on here like voter fraud, huh? An entertainment website found posts...
  • Sharpton To Schultz: FCC Should Go After Rush

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    If the left can't get Rush by reviving the Fairness Doctrine, maybe the race card will work . . . Al Sharpton has called for the FCC to go after the stations that carry Rush Limbaugh, unsubtly implying that their licenses should be in jeopardy. Sharpton made his speech-chilling suggestion to Ed Schultz on the latter's MSNBC show this evening. The background is the back-and-forth betweeen Schultz and Rush regarding Limbaugh's comments on Jim Clyburn, Pres. Obama and Sheila Jackson Lee. But the bottom line is that the left wants to find an excuse, any excuse, to grab the mike...
