Earlier this week, Ed Schultz, MSNBC, made the following offensive remarks during an on-air assault against Conservative Laura Ingraham.
Twenty-four hours later, the misogynist backtracked, apologizing and pretending to see the error of his ways.
“In full retreat, a humiliated and somber Ed Schultz opened his MSNBC show on Wednesday night (video below) by apologizing to Laura Ingraham for using, on his radio show, ‘vile and inappropriate language’ to describe her, language he did not repeat. On Tuesday, the left-wing host had slimed the conservative talk radio host as a ‘right-wing slut’ and a ‘radio slut.’ (After Schultz’s statement, Thomas Roberts hosted the rest of the hour.)
Schultz pleaded:’’I am deeply sorry, and I apologize. It was wrong, uncalled for and I recognize the severity of what I said. I apologize to you, Laura, and ask for your forgiveness.’ He added that ‘I also met with management here at MSNBC, and understanding the severity of the situation and what I said on the radio and how it reflected terribly on this company, I have offered to take myself off the air for an indefinite period of time with no pay.’ The official NBC management statement, however, said he had agreed to ‘one week of unpaid leave….”
In my opinion that which is articulated by Schultz are representative of MSNBC and the White House’s perception of those who stand in opposition to a corrupt and tyrannical government.
As Schultz said in the above video, his words were an embarrassment to himself and MSNBC. TRUE. Said embarrassment, however, is by design and nothing new for MSNBC or Schultz among others.
Considering MSNBC never saw fit to reprimand Schultz for earlier rabid rants, why should anyone accept as true that the man is the slightest bit remorseful or that he has learned from the error of his ways.

Schultz’s mad dog rants began a long time ago and up until this week, MSNBC pretended not notice thereby condoning the fanatical rhetoric of their employees.
