MSNBC Suspends Schultz Over Ingraham Slur

By on 5.25.11 | 11:31PM

Well.

MSNBC steps up to the plate and suspends Ed Schultz. "Unacceptable" says the network of calling Laura Ingraham...well...go look it up.

This was just disgraceful. Anybody in the public eye -- including Laura Ingraham -- has to take as well as dish. A fact of life, and overall a good one. But this was so far over the line -- with clear deliberate intent -- it was just appalling.

Here's how Laura Ingraham responded:

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.

One could go on… about liberals and their real attitude towards women and so on and on (and on and on). But this succinct statement from Ms. Ingraham sums it up.

Enough said.
