Are the folks at MSNBC the slightest bit concerned anymore with showing even a hint of impartiality in their so-called "news" programming?
On Wednesday, Ed Schultz began the nationally televised show bearing his name saying, "Suck it up Righties!" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
ED SCHULTZ: Good evening, Americans, and welcome to the Ed Show tonight from New York. President Obama has Republicans cornered into backing the most radical budget in the history of America. Now Mitt Romney’s flaks are whining about the President being a bully? Suck it up Righties.
Interesting how he started with "Good evening, Americans."
After all, according to January's Gallup poll, 40 percent of Americans described themselves as conservative. This compared to only 21 percent claiming to be liberal.
This means Schultz began his show telling 40 percent of the nation to suck it up.
Is this really what should be acceptable on a so-called "news" network?
