Ed Schultz Wins TV Argument By Shutting Off Mic

We already know that Ed Schultz, like many of his cable network prime-time chat show hosts, has an odd definition of what can be considered a "civil conversation," but an argument yesterday with Heritage Foundation fellow Ryan Anderson took the Schultz show to a new level of discourse.

After a brief argument, where Anderson explains the legal rameficiations of the Hobby Lobby v. Burwell decision on existing Religious Freedom Restoration Acts, and how Federal district and circuit courts have long since determined that even state RFRAs that fail to mention corporations by name as a protected group share in RFRA's protections, Anderson then goes on to explain how RFRA does not allow for blatant discrimination, though Schultz seems to think that's the position of the "right wing." After finding he can get nowhere, Ed Schultz decides to end the argument he's losing by cutting off Anderson's mic.
