    Ed Schultz Denounces Colbert/Stewart Rally



    With, naturally, a jab at Glenn Beck at the end.

    All I can say is that douche doesn't speak for me.

    I rather dislike biased pundits and would rather get facts.

    Re: Ed Schultz Denounces Colbert/Stewart Rally

    Jon Stewart IS "Fair and Balanced" with emphasis on "Balanced". He is not an ex-drug addict, recovering alcoholic, with questionable morals. He speaks directly out of one mouth and it is not for shock and awe.show me the money like some other shock jock radio/TV pundits. He is successful because he isn't full of shyte. This causes much consternation and jealously from the likes of Ed Schultz; who btw is the liberal equivalent to Glenn Beck without the following. Here is what Jon said about MSNBC that may have Ed's tighty-whities in a wad:
    Jon Stewart Hilariously Mocks MSNBC
    1). MSNBC: Nothing Says Sizzle Like Andrea Mitchell

    2). MSNBC: Still 100% Latino Free

    3). MSNBC: It Could Always Be Worse. You Could Be Watching CNN Right Now

    For all of those people on the Right who demonize Jon Stewart and his “liberal show,” I’d like them to watch this segment. Stewart doesn’t have a political agenda. He does have an agenda about media accountability, but he doesn’t have a partisan agenda. It is endless frustrating to watch and read so many of the self righteous political pundits in this country try to attach a political motive to everything that Stewart does, for example, The Rally to Restore Sanity, which isn’t about politics, and won’t impact the midterm elections a couple of days later, no matter how myopically the talking heads analyze it.

    With their constant thrust to fit him into their predefined political narrative, the media has proven Jon Stewart’s point for him. Cable news needs to break away from the entertainment that passes as news, and try to focus on returning to its original purpose of factual reporting and news gathering. This will never happen because of how profitable the current model is. Fox News makes a mountain of profit. MSNBC is one of the most profitable divisions in the whole NBC family. Even CNN despite their ratings struggle pulls in strong profits.

    The news media has shifted from being run as a public service with a civic duty to report the news to a center for corporate profits. Jon Stewart has been the singular voice advocating for “restoring sanity” to our media. That’s what the 10/30 rally is about. It is about getting rid of lame, slick, branding, like MSNBC’s latest terrible misfire, and replacing it with programming that is informative. As Stewart himself has proven with his comedy show, it is possible to be entertaining and informative, but as long as news divisions are being run with only profit in mind, our news will continue to vanish from what are supposed to be news networks.

    Ed Shultz would denounce his own mother or his own children if it gained him 1 or 2 additional kool-aid drinkers to watch his anaemic rantings.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I feel the same about Ed as I do about Glenn, or Rush, or Savage et al. They are all shock jock ratings whores.

    Why do people pretend that Ed Schultz is relevant?

    Not sure --- I guess because he gets attention for saying outrageous things. The more outrageous the more attention and some may think such attention makes his nutty statements relevant.

    That is why many of us compare him to Glenn Beck, except that far fewer liberals actually give what he says any credence. Liberals are smart like that.

    Re: Ed Schultz Denounces Colbert/Stewart Rally

    This thread belongs in the breaking news category? This is nothing more than audio from Ed's radio program and put on YouTube by Brian Maloney at RadioEqualizer who is trying to make a non-story into one. Listening to Ed's commentary, it doesn't exactly sound that he's denounced the rally, its more like he's questioning the validity of it from a political POV.
