Ed Schultz Suspended for Calling Laura Ingraham a Slut

“Remarks of this nature are unacceptable and will not be tolerated,” MSNBC said in a statement.

MSNBC said Schultz will address the remarks on his show Wednesday night, and begin his leave immediately afterward. He will return on June 6th.

“MSNBC management met with Ed Schultz this afternoon and accepted his offer to take one week of unpaid leave for the remarks he made yesterday on his radio program,” MSNBC said.
In the most surprising turn of events this statement came from The Women's Media Center:
“While conservative bloggers and watchdog organizations are highlighting Schultz’s remark, the Women’s Media Center also calls on MSNBC to suspend Schultz for his comments, since they not only attack Ingraham, but all women, Ms. Ingraham is no friend to the Women’s Media Center, but a sexist and misogynist attack based on her gender and not her political views or comments is harmful to women in media, politics, and beyond.”

Can't we just all get along?  Ed Schultz is an embarassment to his profession.   
Ingraham not one to shy away said:
“Re. the crude comments made about me by Ed Schultz on his radio program: First, I was surprised to learn that Ed Schultz actually hosted a radio show. Is it only available online?”

“Second, I have to get back to recording the audio edition of my new book “Of Thee I Zing.” Now I’m tempted to insert one additional zing—about men who preach civility but practice misogyny.”

You should go read the comments under this story at Politico, you will get a good laugh.

I will check out the Politico comments, just to see.

If you have not yet, check out the comments at HuffPo. Literally amazing the things people will accept at a partisan level from the likes of Schulz.

Also, the misrepresentation of Limbaugh and Beck, as if either has ever said such a thing, but the HuffPo lefties sure believe it to be true, thanks to the likes of MediaMatters.

I'm thinking Ed is just taking vacation time. The week's pay is meaningless and could even be a lie anyway to be covered up by a bonus later on.
