Go Figure, Ed Schultz Provides Most Inane Hoffa Apologia So Far
September 8th, 2011 6:42 PM
It's official -- I'm an Ed Schultz fan.
OK, well, "fan" isn't exactly the right word. Let's just say I'd be crushed if MSNBC canceled "The Ed Show." After all, nowhere else on cable does one find such a consistent stream of idiocy that never fails to amuse. Not even from Schultz's colleague Al Sharpton, though the man is certainly a contender. (…

Barnicle, Brown Defend Hoffa: Suddenly Opposed To 'Sanitizing' Speech
September 7th, 2011 8:01 AM
Is there no double-standard depths to which the liberal media won't sink when it comes to provocative political speech? No—judging by the pitiful performance of two MSMers on today's Morning Joe in defending James "Take 'Em Out" Hoffa.
Newsweek editor Tina Brown brayed that we must not "sanitize" political speech or take the "juice" out…
Ed Schultz Asks Hoffa 'Do You Think The Republicans Are Sons of B---he
September 7th, 2011 12:14 AM
Not surprisingly, MSNBC’s Ed Schultz was practically orgasmic with joy Tuesday over Teamsters president James Hoffa’s Labor Day declaration of war against the Tea Party.
After telling his “Ed Show” audience that Obama’s poll numbers have been declining because he hasn’t spoken to the American people like the union boss, Schultz actually asked Hoffa, “…

September 6th, 2011 10:38 PM
After the mass shooting in Tucson of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, a federal judge, and other bystanders, President Obama gave one of those unite-the-divide speeches that give journalists leg thrills. We need to “sharpen our instincts for empathy,” he said.
He lamented political finger-pointing: “It's important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking…

September 6th, 2011 8:17 PM

NYT's Calmes Ignores Hoffa's 'Take These Son of a Bitches Out' Tea Par
September 6th, 2011 5:09 PM
New York Times reporter Jackie Calmes spent Labor Day with President Obama in Detroit, who spoke at a heavily union rally featuring speakers from organized labor.

GMA Skips Hoffa's Call for War Against Tea Party 'Sons of Bitches
September 6th, 2011 12:52 PM
Good Morning America on Tuesday skipped any mention of James Hoffa's call for war against the Tea Party and the union leader's exhortation to "take these son[s] of bitches out." The ABC program was the only network evening or morning show to ignore the heated rhetoric entirely.

September 6th, 2011 11:49 AM
"I know you'd like to focus on language, that's not what the American people are focused on."
