MSNBC Suspends Sleazy Host Ed Schultz

MSNBC has had to suspend another one of their sleazy program hosts. They suspended host Ed Schultz for a week on Wednesday after Schultz called rival pundit Laura Ingraham “a right-wing slut” during a radio broadcast teh day before.

Schultz apologized for the comment on his TV program, “The Ed Show,” on Wednesday night, saying he had used “vile and inappropriate language” in referring to Ingraham.

“I am deeply sorry, and I apologize,” he said. “It was wrong, uncalled for, and I recognize the severity of what I said. I apologize to you, Laura, and ask for your forgiveness.”

Schultz’s slur was a response to Ingraham’s criticism of President Obama’s trip to Ireland. Ingraham had noted that Obama was touring Ireland while devastating tornadoes were hitting the United States, including one that killed 116 people in Joplin, Mo.

“President Obama is going to be visiting Joplin, Mo., on Sunday, but you know what [Republicans are] talking about, like this right-wing slut, what’s her name? Laura Ingraham?” Schultz said on the air. “Yeah, she’s a talk slut. You see, she was, back in the day, praising President Reagan when he was drinking a beer overseas. But now that Obama’s doing it, they’re working him over.”

Radical leftists like Schultz always lose control when someone dares to criticize President Barack Hussein Obama, D-Kenya.

Schultz now joins former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann in being suspended for vile conduct.  

In his apology, Schultz said: “It doesn’t matter what the circumstances were. It doesn’t matter that I was on radio and I was ad-libbing. 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 for her today.”

Schultz said he offered to take himself off MSNBC “for an indefinite period of time with no pay.”

On her Facebook page Ingraham wrote, “Now I’m tempted to insert one additional zing ... about men who preach civility but practice misogyny.”

If you are attacking someone’s politics, no need to be ad hominem, or ad womanem. Just make your case.

Schultz has promised never to use the word ‘slut’ again.

Schultz said he had tried unsuccessfully to reach Ingraham to apologize personally. “I have embarrassed my family. I have embarrassed this company,” he said. “The only way I can prove my sincerity in all of this is if I never use those words again. You have my word I won’t.”


  1. Ed, I am with you 100%, I admire you for sticking up for the truth. President Obama has been ridiculed from day one, by rush Limbaugh, (his name doesn't deserve Capital letters) who has yet to be suspended or fired. And you are not SLEAZY. rush Limbaugh and the entire republican tea party are sleazy, ignorant and a bunch of religious HYPOCRITES.They care nothing about the poor, who according to the BIBLE will always be with us.Have they read that part of the Bible or can they read?

  2. I agree. President Obama cares very much about the poor. So much that he created millions more of them. His policies have driven up unemployment among the poor, and among African Americans.

    I suppose you feel that these are good things?

  3. Good Ed needs to be off forever. A week is a joke. And the spin cycle today if they keep spinning they will convince each other Obama and Bergdahl really was a good thing.
