Ed Schultz has been suspended by MSNBC for one week (without pay) for laughingly describing conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham as a “right-wing slut” on his syndicated radio program.
He plans to be “on air” next Tuesday and will likely open his show with a carefully worded apology.
In response to Schultz’s obvious unprofessional remarks, the hosts of The View offered their “on air” support for him saying it was OK to refer to some women as sluts. The lead mouth that morning was one who could be considered an expert in this area, Whoopi Goldberg.
It’s disappointing that radio and TV talk show personalities have sunk to these level of thoughtless jibber jabber and disparagement. Even worse, people listen to it regularly.
