    "Ed Schultz apologized for his comments about Laura Ingraham on Wednesday, before beginning a week-long suspension from MSNBC.

    Appearing at the top of his Wednesday show, Schultz said that calling Ingraham a "right-wing slut" on his Tuesday radio show was "vile and inappropriate," and apologized unreservedly to her, as well as to his wife, his family and MSNBC.

    "I am deeply sorry, and I apologize," he said. "It was wrong, uncalled for and I recognize the severity of what I said."

    After learning of the comments, MSNBC met with Schultz and the two sides agreed that he would be suspended for a week without pay from his program."

    You decide...perhpas Schultz went over the line...
    ...and certainly a private employer has the right to suspend him....

    But as they say in my neighborhood 'not for nuttin,' I think we answer speech with which we disagree with what we consider correct speech.

    1. Write, call, email, with disagreement.

    2. Don't watch the program in question.

    3. Have opinion shows hooked up so that emails run as the crawl under the pic, which would give immediate feedback of the type we have here. Software could remove offensive terms.

    But I don't think we should be telling folks what they can or cannot say.

    Disagree. We can tell them what they can and cannot say. They are not obligated to listen, however.

    Ed Shultz has a way with words doesn't he.A good portion of his show has him using his pet nicknames for those on the right.I'm glad this happened and although he did the correct thing
    and apologized and either he removed himself from the air or was suspended this guy has a history with the name calling.

    I want to see everyone on MSNBC who has a show starting with Joe Scarborough on down the line comment on air that this guy Shultz was a jerk or worse.When Imus made his comment it was news there for weeks.Lets see the same treatment for one of their own.:(

    He has the right to say what he said. MSNBC have the right to sanction him for doing it. Works for me.

    Certain liberals are known for trying to attract attention to themselves by abusing their right of free speach with crude and vulgar attacks on conservatives or anyone else they disagree with. I welcome it. In so doing they tell us who they are and their mental/emotional age with those stunts which they learned in their dysfunctional homes and grade school situations.

    Who's Ed Schultz?

    I love that he's a fucking Leftist Pig and shoots his stupid ideas out publicly and I for one don't want him silenced. If would be like putting Va "Wanker" Yank, R "6%" dean, Old "Cold Fusion" Rocks or Truth "Fearless" Matters on ignore. Stupid = Funny.

    Give them enough rope and they shoot themselves in the head repeatedly

    I don't think you really disagree...
    That is what I was trying to say in the OP.

    They say what they wish...and you respond in the manner you find most appropriate.
    And most folks do: you've seen the ratings for MSNBC.

    Yes, I have. That has more to do with liberals not having to be spoon fed their thoughts as you FOX viewers do.

    :lol:

    I'm sure it's clear from the OP...but I don't believe Imus should have been exposed to the treatment he received, as well.
