|Former Prominent Inmate of the MSNBC Loony Bin|
We all remember Ed Schultz, once known far and wide for his spitting, slobbering, blood vessel bursting left-wing tirades on MSNBC, now claims he was forced out at MSNBC in 2015 because of his support for his friend, Batshit Crazy Bernie Sanders. Schultz often interviewed Sanders before the Vermont senator's presidential campaign. Crazy Ed has since moved on to his present stint as a tool for the Kremlin propaganda network RT (Russia Today) long before the leftist American media turned on Vlad Putin for ruining their anticipated progressive dynasty and helped Donald Trump steal the throne of their exalted Queen Hillary.
WFB - Ex-MSNBC host Ed Schultz in a recent interview ripped his former network as "in the tank for Hillary Clinton" and suggested he was fired in 2015 because of his support for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.). Schultz told National Review‘s Jamie Weinstein in an an interview posted Friday that MSNBC chief Phil Griffin was a "watchdog," and he said he was often given direction on what stories to cover.
Sanders gave his official campaign launch speech in Burlington, Vermont on May 26, 2015, and Schultz said he was the only cable news host planning to air it live. Griffin called him five minutes before air time at 5 p.m. EST, and said, "You're not covering this." It got rather contentious, Schultz said. He said he was forced to cover something "totally meaningless" in Texas, devastating flooding in Texas and Oklahoma and the unrest in Baltimore over the death of Freddy Gray.
Schultz opined he was forced out because of MSNBC's water-carrying for Clinton.
"I think the Clintons were connected to [NBC News chief] Andy Lack, connected at the hip. I think that they didn't want anybody in their primetime or anywhere in their lineup supporting Bernie Sanders. They were in the tank for Hillary Clinton, and I think that it was managed. 45 days later I was out at MSNBC. I thought it stunk"Schultz, despite previously ripping Vladimir Putin for his "nasty" human rights record, joined the Kremlin propaganda network in January of 2016. He told Weinstein his anchoring gig at RT was the best job.
"...the most freedom I've ever had. I'm doing real journalism. It's not opinion. There was more oversight and more direction given to me on content at MSNBC than there ever has been here at RT. I think that it's very sad that story is not getting out." - More at the Link
I think it's a sad commentary on the media in this country that someone who escaped it, and now works for Russia's state-funded TV network of all things, at the least perceives he has more journalist freedom then he had in the American media. The same media once admired as the standard of the free world.
POWER TO THE CORRECT PEOPLE!
