    Default MSNBC's Ed Schults Suspended for Insulting Laura Ingram



    Ed Schultz has been suspended from MSNBC for calling conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham a "right wing slut" on his syndicated radio show.

    Schultz opened his primetime MSNBC show on Wednesday apologizing to Ingraham, MSNBC, his family and viewers.

    "It doesn't matter that I was on radio ad-libbing," Schultz said of his comments the day before. "What I said was terribly vile."

    All he did is say what lot of people think of her.

    So...what I take away from this is that you can't tell the truth on the radio anymore?

    Seriously, though...I can see where it was insensitive but it is likely correct. I don't see it much differently than Fox insulting those on the left via Beck, Limbaugh, O'Reilly and Hannity (who all, by the way, are members of AFTRA, the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists - basically, they're all in a union but yet put down unions...hypocrites!)

    Maybe different wording? Laura Ingraham prostitutes her mind for conservative causes?

    Anyone else got one?

    Ed Shultz has been fired!!! This is over the top!! I am really not happy about this.

    Schultz apologized on MSNBC on Wednesday to Ingraham, his family, MSNBC and viewers for the remark. He said it was wrong and uncalled for, and he recognized the severity of what he said.

    Goes back to what I said above. The right can say whatever they want but let left-leaning commentators say something offensive and they have a conniption fit. How many times has Rush (that fat drug-addled hypocrite b*st*rd, IMO) Limbaugh insulted people on his show and gotten away with it? Or Hannity? Or Beck? O'Reilly at least seems somewhat civil.

    The left needs to grow a pair and tell the right they can shove their opinions up their butts until they want to quit playing the name-calling games and level the field. Until then the gloves should be off.

    My hubby came in from Utah at 2:00 am and I told him about this. My exact comment was how come Beck and Limbaugh can insult and say whatever they want, day after day, year after year! Limbaugh is the most offensive man I have ever listened to on talk radio. I will not allow him on my car radio!!

    Does anyone really know what is going on with this? When I posted this link yesterday, my internet provider showed this as front page news and said in the title that Ed had been fired! Now I am just hearing a suspension again? So what is really going on?

    In fact, I just opened up this link again and it isn't even the same article!! Ah, my local phone company Qwest, gotta love them!
