MRC President Brent Bozell appeared on the Mark Levin radio show, Thursday, to premiere a new montage of Ed Schultz's most hateful comments and attack MSNBC's double standard. Pointing out liberal journalists who have called for Rush Limbaugh's firing, but are silent on Shultz, Bozell declared, "I’ve had it with the dishonesty. I’ve had it with the shameless posturing. I’ve had it with the hypocrisy. And it’s time to call them out on it."
Video of Schultz's foaming, unhinged rants over "bastard," "slut" conservatives can be found below. [MP3 audio here.] After Levin played the montage, which included Shultz suggesting some conservatives want to murder Barack Obama, Bozell wondered, "Have you ever heard any one of those reporters who were upset with Rush Limbaugh ever express any outrage at anything that Ed Schultz has said along the lines we just played you?"
With all the outrage against Rush Limbaugh for using the word slut. And you've heard so many people at MSNBC, one after another after another trying to keep that story alive day after day after day after day. Everybody, Al Sharpton, Chris Matthews. They're all with the drumbeat trying to keep it alive. Can you recall and if your audience can put their thinking caps on this, can you recall anybody at MSNBC, anybody at The New York Times, anybody at CNN, at ABC, at CBS, at Headline News, at The Washington Post. Anyone who has gone after Rush Limbaugh, can you name me a person who went after Ed Schultz for calling Laura Ingraham a slut?
