Ed Schultz is dead. To paraphrase Shakespeare, we’re probably not going to see his like again .Not on TV, anyway.
There used to be more people on TV like Ed, people who stood for something, who spoke their minds, without sugar coating what they had to say.
Now – left or right – it seems to be all spin, carefully designed to build and keep a target audience.
If you’ve been reading my blogs, you probably know I watch MSNBC. But Ed was too honest for MSNBC, too forthright. They fired him in 2015 on the pretext of reshaping their approach to the news.
