MSNBC's Ed Schultz Suspended For "Slut" Remark

| Filed under: TV NewsPolitik

We find when you are hosting your own major cable news show, it helps to think before you speak. Perhaps that's something you'll want to keep in mind for the future, Ed!

Every day, Ed Schultz bring his own brand of political commentary to MSNBC on The Ed Show. This week, he let his opinions get the better of him when firing back at Laura Ingraham, a FOX News correspondent who criticized the President for visiting Ireland while Americans in Missouri were being killed and left homeless by the devastating tornado strike. In his tirade back to Laura, he said, ON AIR:

“President Obama is going to be visiting Joplin, Mo., on Sunday, but you know what [Republicans are] talking about, like this right-wing slut, what’s her name? Laura Ingraham? Yeah, she’s a talk slut. You see, she was, back in the day, praising President Reagan when he was drinking a beer overseas. But now that Obama’s doing it, they’re working him over.”

Misogyny's not a good color on you, Ed! You should've held your tongue.

Because of his outburst, Ed has now been suspended from the network and we hear he's even prepared to take himself off the network “for an indefinite period of time with no pay.” After he was shown the door, he released this statement to apologize to Laura, saying:

“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.”

At least he owns up to it. Doesn't make it right by any means, but at least he's trying to show he can be a better man than the one who said those awful things. There's a lesson to be learned here:

Watch your mouth!!!

    Sounds like a SlutWalk demonstration is in order outside Schultz's office!

    is he really that clueless…its so embarrassing to be a liberal.

    I hope he is not suspended for long I love his show what he said was wrong but I think msnbc and people are so tired of fox news their racist statements about Obama. When he is not doing anything wrong but having a drink in Ireland when all the presidents have done what he did before . fox news is out control with their personal attacks against Obama he can attack his polity's but when the fox news people who are supposed to be education journalism. Are saying things like he is the food stamps president,he drinking 40's , he wants to make American like Detroit that's when their are taking it to far and that's why Ed and alot of Msnbc Journalism get so angry. The crap that fox news spills everyday from morning,Afternoon and night is nothing but straight up racist remarks about Obama . Fox news is the one that take it to the next level not Obama not his supports but Fox news and their crazy follower and some republicans. Enough is Enough already people are so disrespect when in come to president Obama with the racist comments.



  4. 4

    Right sentiment, wrong choice of words. Ingraham is a moralizing right wing shill.



  5. 5

    I'm not a republican but she's right. What is he doing over there shaking hands and taking photos when his people are getting killed over here? He needs to be HERE.

    What kind of leader abandons his people for photo ops? Seriously, who does that?



  6. 6

    While he shouldn't have used the word 'slut' he wasn't wrong in being angry at her



  7. 7

    Re: Sexsai[/re] The trip to Ireland was already planned so how in the world would Obama know that Joplin was going to have a flood this bad. And Obama is going to Joplin this Sunday the whole point Ed was trying to make before his emotions got the best of him. Was that fox news are always trying to make anything that Obama does negative and they don't tell people the real facts its fact that they make to support their right wings ways . They are always Bashing Obama But how long did it take Bush to go to New Orlean ? Sexsai ?



  8. 8

    Typical liberal. Because their political arguments usually fail, they resort to personal attacks.



  9. 9

    Re: Sexsai – I think you are forgetting when Bush did that for Hurricane Katrina victims. Anyway he is going to Joplin on Sunday. This trip was planned 2 months in advance for our foreign relations, and natural disasters just happen.
    Its ridiculous how pundits are attacking him. Im with Ed Schultz on this! That woman just needs to go away and she should take Sarah Palin with her!



  10. 10

    Re: othefan21 – I agree with you 100%!!!!



  11. 11

    He should be slapped around and thrown down the stairs.



  12. 12

    slut is not an apropriat word for laura. but she is unbelievably annoying. can you imagine the guy that's married to her. he must comtemplate sticking a gun in his mouth daily.



  13. 13

    You have a lot of nerve scolding someone for using the word 'slut' considered you used to employ nicknames such as Slutty Cyrus and Sluttienna Miller.



  14. 14

    First of all, he said it on his radio show, not on his MSNBC television show. Secondly, you have to give the guy credit for a straightforward apology - none of the usual right-wing mealy-mouthed "I apologize to anyone I might have offended" (like it is their fault for taking offense) or "I apologize to anyone who took offense" "I didn't mean to give the impression" or "my statement was not intended to be a factual statement". Ed's apology was straight-up I done wrong and I'm sorry.

    Network talking heads have lost their neutrality and thus their objectivity with polarizing bottom of the barrel talk like this comment. He would lose all credibility with me as soon as I heard him say this. Very unprofessional, and it insults intelligent viewers. Not to mention how ungentlemanly and mannerless it is for him to utter this on air regarding a woman who has chose public service. If he doesn't like her, he needs to pretend to have an actual position as to why.



  16. 16

    I haven't forgotten what you wrote about Bristol Palin or Carrie Prejean. I'm not a fan of either of these women, but I was creeped out by the names you called them. Have you called them up to apologize yet?



  17. 17

    And she can't be a slut. Nobody in their right mind would screw that idiot.



  18. 18

    He made a mistake, people!!! Everyone deserves a second chance. Put him back on the show. I don't care to watch the show if he's not on it, and I won't watch that Fox channel that spews hate.



  19. 19

    That fat old fart needs to think before he speaks. Hes lucky hes a liberal or theyd have fired him for that.



  20. 20

    Re: universewatcher – shut up



  21. 21

    He always seemed like an angry drunk to me!! Things do not just slip, he meant what he said, and i think this is how he speaks of most woman. Where is the outrage by the feminazi's, oh yeah he said it about a conservative female so it is okay. Where is the tolerance the President called for during the fallout of the Arizona shootings. He and MSNBC are just full of hate and intolerance.



  22. 22

    Laura Ingraham is a stupid cun*t.



  23. 23

    Re: sharkey4

    LOL. Typical conservative response. Guilty of the same thing but acts like they aren't.



  24. 24

    Re: othefan21 – He should cut his trip SHORT and LEAVE to go back to the people who need help.
    What kind of leader shakes hands and smiles for photos while his people are getting killed?
    If I were president and heard this was going on to this extent I would cut my trip short and go.

    Re: ParalyZzzZzer

    Eat shit.



  26. 26

    i just find this funny because if a republican did this, and used the EXACT same apology, you would be all "oh, doesn't really sound sincere to us. just covering up their tracks.."



  27. 27

    Re: Wild-Guitar – aawww what happened ? Mommy didn't love you enough ?



  28. 28

    I don't agree with Ingraham's politics at all, but ANY man - republican or dem - using a word that degrades women for their sexuality deserves to be condemned.



  29. 29

    I am not a Dr. Laura fan at all, however calling ANY woman a "slut" is unacceptable….what is it with men (some)? Is he threatened by her in some way and feels the need to try to bring her down….? Fattie needs to get some confidence so that he is not threatened…..I don't mind Ed, but this is an attack on women, period…NOT COOL.



  30. 30

    She is a FUCKING RIGHT WING SLUT.
    WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?



  31. 31

    Re: adg100 – Easy now….again, not a Dr. Laura fan but again for every girl that is unattractive, there are JUST AS MANY MEN that are unattractive too…..I am sure she has an equally unattracive husband….In fact, I have seen her husband-he is gross. Perfect pair.



  32. 32

    Let's face it people. This happens with every President. The opposite party media tends to pick on the President. The liberal media did it with Bush, so the republican media should be able to do it with Obama.



  33. 33

    He's obviously a sexist bigot. Take him off the air waves permanently. We don't need this type of hateful rhetoric in the media.



  34. 34

    They should fire him.



  35. 35

    Re: bowlerderby – Great point.



  36. 36

    If it walks like a duck and sounds like a duck … I guess that I just don't see where he went wrong here.



  37. 37

    Another stupid righteous liberal nut shown the door. What else is new?



  38. 38

    Sadly he must have missed the yearly MSNBC sexual harassment seminar! Any professional that calls a woman/man a SLUT on the job has some major issues. The HR department hopefully will get him the training he needs. Maybe some time spent talking to teen girls who are bullied with the word SLUT, would give him some insight to the pain that word can cause! What a pathetic person this Ed Schultz must be!



  39. 39

    no typical non educated liberal. I will take you on in any world events. any time. find lybia on a map.



  40. 40

    Re: Wild-Guitar – what is your education. Laura graduated from Dartmouth College and the University of Virginia. Yeah she is extremely smart, and where was your drop out degree from?



  41. 41

    Re: KERNBUZZ – and you are just such a nun. Stand up for woman you are a woman right? or are you something else? Pedigree please.



  42. 42

    Of course he shouldn't have called her a slut, but WHY THE HELL is this bitch criticising Obama for being in Ireland on the SAME day a tornado hits Missouri?!? Was he supposed to immediately get back on a plane in the midst of several official state visits that were planned for months and fly to the States? The man was drinking a beer. Get over it. I knew Fox News would be complete douches the second I saw him drinking a Guinness on BBC. You people are complete and utter morons if you agree with her. Typical conservatives, criticising everything the other side does when your side has done far worse.
    Re: Sexsai – You are as big of a MORON as Ingraham! He wasn't drinking beers as people were being killed, you f***ing ignorant slut. Bush hopped on the first plane to Louisiana as soon as Katrina hit, didn't he? Ignoramus.
    Re: labornurse11 – "Drop out degree"??? In what world does that phrase make sense? Another ignoramus!
    Re: Sexsai – Bullsh*t.



  43. 43

    Re: Sexsai – What happened in Joplin is devastating but everyone (including the government) is doing everything they can with the resources they have at the moment. Obama is not unaware of what has happened and he is not overseas JUST to drink beer and be on vacation. He is also attending the G8 Summit, which is why he CAN'T cut his trip short. He will be in Joplin on Sunday, doing everything he can.

    Maybe you should read up before opening your mouth.

    And before anyone jumps on my back, I am FAR from Obama's biggest fan. I'm just sick of everyone using him as a scape goat for everything.



  44. 44

    Laura Ingraham, Hates the hell out of Our President Obama, She can not believe that a Black man is smarter then a white man. The hate she has will catch up with her when she has to be face to face with God. As for Ed he is a good guy that got caught up with her hate. He is the real thing MSNBC better watch out because Ed Schultz will leave and he can get a real show on HBO, He needs to be free with his words. Unless he runs for President I will vote for him. He is a MAN with Passion for the POOR! God will Bless him.



  45. 45

    Laura Ingraham, is a Bitch! She is the one that needs to be thrown out, oh wait she is on Fox. That is not even a real station. Fox is a station that reveals all the people that Hate President Obama.
    Ed Schultz speaks for me. I have an idea. President Obama needs to hire Mr. Schultz as a ADVISORY. I pray that Mr. Schultz and his family. He took the words out of my mouth "SLUT"



  46. 46

    I love you Ed Schultz. Don't worry you are our HERO!!!
