OK

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.

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‚Äôs 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.
