Donald Trump’s summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un has been met with skepticism from liberal journalists with the likes of CBS correspondent Bianna Golodryga railing: “The self-proclaimed dealmaker in chief has so far proven to be more of a deal breaker, tearing up international deals.” But this is a far cry from the liberal media’s reaction to Barack Obama’s December 2014 deal with Cuban dictator Raul Castro. The following are the most exuberant reactions from the liberal media to Obama’s initial announcement of a thaw with Cuba back in December 2014, as culled from the MRC’s archives
If you want direct confirmation that MSNBC perpetrates fake news, then listen to Ed Schultz who used to host a show at that network. In an podcast interview with Jamie Weinstein of the National Revew, Schultz claimed that the president of MSNBC contacted him just minutes before he was due to broadcast the official kickoff of the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign and demanded he cover another topic instead. Schultz also claims that because MSNBC was so far in the bag with Hillary Clinton that he was subsequently fired from that network for supporting Sanders.
For anyone wondering how former MSNBC host Ed Schultz has been occupying his time since the far-left host was booted from MSNBC a couple of years ago, the answer to that question would seem to be that he's going even further off the rails if his current show from this past week is an indication. Schultz -- who currently hosts the Russia Today network's The News with Ed Schultz -- actually gave an unchallenged forum to an anti-Israel activist -- Miko Peled -- who not only called the Israeli government a "racist" regime that is engaging "genocide" against Arabs, but the guest even called for the U.S. to take military action against the Jewish state by sending the Sixth Fleet to the Gaza Strip and forcing Israel to end its blockade.
New York magazine writer Gabriel Sherman has been the liberal media’s leading investigator/prosecutor of former Fox News boss Roger Ailes and the network’s settlement with Gretchen Carlson on sexual harassment claims. Now Evan Gahr in the New York Observer reports that Sherman didn’t exactly come clean with readers about lengthy negotiations to get hired by MSNBC:
It's a rare thing for former MSNBC anchor and current RT America host Ed Schultz to defend Republicans – especially GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump -- but that's what he did on Friday, when he released a video criticizing Hillary Clinton and her presidential campaign for never granting interviews to the Russian network.
“Give me a minute,” the liberal anchor stated before noting that the Cable News Network “just ran a big, big, long segment on how Donald Trump is unpatriotic because he did an interview with Larry King on Russian-funded television. That's right, RT America.”
What a difference a year can make if those 12 months are spent no longer working for MSNBC. In the case of Ed Schultz, it means he'll now occasionally demonstrate a capacity for common sense.
In addition to his nightly News with Ed Schultz on the Kremlin-backed RT (Russia Today) network, the ex-MSNBCer also puts out a daily podcast and YouTube video titled Ed Schultz News and Commentary. As was the case with most of the media, Schultz this week responded to Donald Trump's comments about Hillary Clinton's opposition to the Second Amendment. Where Schultz parted company with most other media was in his even-handed assessment.
Almost anything that airs on the Kremlin-backed Russia Today makes for interesting fodder and Wednesday night was no different as former MSNBC host Ed Schultz lashed out at the “stupid” “mainstream media” for selling out to Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s claim that Bernie Sanders supporters incited “violence” at a Nevada convention last weekend.
Ed Schultz has been at the helm of a 30-minute news program on the Kremlin-backed Russia Today for roughly two months and on Thursday night’s edition, the far-left pundit broke ranks to interview a Democratic congressional candidate in Nevada who was reportedly told by Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid that he’d be unable to win because he’s Muslim.
Former MSNBC host and soon-to-be Russia Today (RT) host Ed Schultz joined Larry King on Thursday’s Politicking to preview his 30-minute program on the Kremlin-backed network and promised that there “won’t be a lot of opinion” and instead serve as “a direct news show.” The leftist heaped praise on Republican presidential candidates Donald Trump and John Kasich with Trump having focused on “these rotten trade deals” and acting like Ronald Reagan while ruling that he’d “be surprised” if Kasich wasn’t chosen as the GOP’s VP nominee.
After bellowing on demand for several years at MSNBC, America's version of the Russia Today television network, Ed Schultz starts work at the actual RT next week.
But following his fair and balanced commentary about Donald Trump on last night's Alan Colmes radio show, Schultz might just as easily fit in at Fox News.
The liberal and often inappropriate Triumph the Insult Comic Dog joined MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell to close out Tuesday’s Last Word and along with going after Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin, and Donald Trump, Triumph took a few witty shots at former MSNBC (and soon to be Russia Today) host Ed Schultz and Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
The obvious joke is it's a lateral move from Air America radio and MSNBC to a Kremlin-backed show for Russia Today. CNN's Dylan Byers reports Schultz will host the simply titled News with Ed Schultz at 8 p.m. weeknights, where he will "focus on exploring issues that most affect working Americans, particularly within the context of the upcoming US presidential election," according to a press release.
