Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

I have never been a huge fan of Ed Schultz. I cannot articulate my distaste for him as well as I can my distaste for Cenk Uygur, nor is it as strong, but this CERTAINLY adds to the pile. Big time.

TALKERS (always a tool):

Right and Left Come Together at the TALKERS New Media Seminar to Denounce the Practice of Organized Advertiser Boycotts.
Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

They might not agree on many things but a love for the business of talk broadcasting and its role as a vehicle for the practice of the First Amendment can indeed make for strange political bedfellows.  In a rare display of unity, two of the highest-
profile and distinctly politically opposite talk show hosts in the business condemned the increased practice of organized advertiser boycotts by political organizations as a means of shutting down voices on radio and television with which they disagree....
Emphasis mine.

Yeah, I fucking disagree with Rush Limbaugh calling sandra Fluke a "slut" and a prostitute."
I fucking disagree with the son of a bitch saying he wants the President to fail.
You goddamn right I disagree with that.
but do I need to point out that some things go beyond simple disagreement?

Because what I REALLY disagree with is the cheapening of the discourse and the political balm handed out to the right wing by their dominance of corporate media.

I disagree with the public airwaves being used to give one political party their marching orders and to damage the other as much as possible.

I disagree with it big time.

Hannity’s remedy: Change the dial.  Schultz concurred.
To WHAT?

Fuck both of y'all.

Here's the difference as I see it: Hannity is just putting the political meat out there.

Schultz, being the underdog, is simply worried about his OWN ass. He's afraid he might be next?:

"If we start attacking advertisers because of what somebody said, it's the wrong thing to do."
Uh-huh.

Which is the more contemptible position? I know what I think.

Hannity isn't selling out on jack shit. He doesn't have to. He sold out long ago.

Schultz?

Full sale.

Watch and listen as Schultz joins in Hannity's attack on Media Matters:

So: From one Ed in radio to another:

Fuck you, Schultz. Thoroughly and completely.
