It's one thing for Ed Schultz to march way out of lockstep with his MSNBC colleagues on guns. Today he accused one of them with getting it flat-out wrong in claiming that Schultz's remarks during a meeting with President Obama in 2011 were perceived by the president as disrespectful.
In his new book, "The Message: The Reselling of President Obama," Richard Wolffe, executive editor of MSNBC.com, describes a White House meeting attended by Obama and several prominent media liberals, including Schultz. At one point during the gathering, Wolffe wrote, "Ed Schultz sat listening to others opine before ripping into an impassioned plea for the president to stand up and fight. The 44th president of the United States listened calmly and nodded his head, surprising his aides with a meek appearance that successfully masked how little patience he had for such criticism."
