  •  kestrel "doesn't like Ed Shultz" AHA!!! (13+ / 0-)

    the opening line of this diary says it all.... or, at least, explains the tirade against the only person actually speak for and with LABOR on the teevee.

    SO WHAT that Shultz doesn't support listener boycotts of sponsors???   SO WHAT  :)  

    does that interfer with our desire to do it anyway?  

    NO it doesn't.  

    Would we prefer if Shultz agreed with us and joined us and advocated for Boycotting the very sponsors HE NEEDS in order to stay on the air,

    Sure we would...  but he needs those sponsors, WE DONT!!  

    what we DO need is a voice for LABOR on the airwaves... and right now that voice is ED SHULTZ

    oh and Shultz isnt "attacking" a valid and effective grassroots tactic... he is DISAGREEING with it.  

    btw Bill Mahar also agrees with hannity about listener boycotts so should we also attack Mahar?

      that the boycotts were for simple disagreement.
      Also, if it was a LABOR boycott of union busting corporations, he'd be all in for that; as well he should.
      Ah, but the tune changes when he stands next to Hannity (slant-head) talking to industry insiders about his OWN industry, and his OWN ass.
      Yes, it does.

          I never have been a huge fan, but I don't have an active dislike and distrust for him like I do for Cenk. I just think he's kind of....boorish? Maybe not the right word.
          I banged that out right after getting my daily email from Talkers, and yeah, I was pissed.

            it is specific and to discuss it would be a hijack of your diary...  :)

            I suggest you temper your anger at Schultz with a bit of understanding that sponsors are what keeps ALL these people on the air and just like we go after Limbaugh others happily go after ED ... its why Mahar disagrees with boycotts too... he was a victim of a successful one.

            So I would rather keep focused on getting people like Limbaugh off the airwaves then help the right get rid of another one of ours :)

            how does that OLD saying go again?  

            dont cutoff your own nose to spite your own face?? ahhh close enough  :)

            you on Cenk too. When you compare Ed to someone like Rachel, you realize there are people out there who can be effective, and not "boorish".
