In a letter to the chairman of MSNBC’s parent company, Comcast, Media Research Center (MRC) Pres. Brent Bozell says the media watchdog is going to make shareholders aware of the types of vile, hateful speech their company is subjecting its viewers to.
“I am calling on you as the Chairman of MSNBC’s parent company, Comcast, to demand Ed Schultz’s termination,” MRC Pres. Brent Bozell wrote to Comcast Chairman Brian Roberts today:
“As the chairman of Comcast, you have a responsibility to your shareholders and the public to produce programs which follow a basic standard of civility.”
Bozell also alerted Roberts that MRC is launching an initiative to make Comcast’s stockholders aware of the intolerable, offensive things being said on MSNBC:
"We intend to take this message directly to the shareholders of Comcast as well. As I also stated to Mr. Griffin, I doubt very much they want to have anything to do with race-baiting, hate-filled, character-assassinating misogynists.”
Bozell says that MSNBC’s president should be held accountable for the hate speech on his network:
“I am also attaching an open letter I sent to MSNBC President Phil Griffin, calling on him to resign effective immediately for hiring and promoting one of the most uncivil, unhinged anchors working in television today. Mr. Griffin’s horrendous decision to endorse a vicious hate monger is blatantly negligent.”
What has MSNBC host Ed Schultz said that’s so awful, you ask?
Here’s a sampling:
Ed Schultz called Laura Ingraham a “right wing slut.” He claimed that "The Republicans want to see you dead! They'd rather make money off your dead corpse! They kind of like it when that woman has cancer and they don't have anything for her."
Schultz’s comments on the former Vice President include: "You're damn right, Dick Cheney's heart's a political football. We ought to rip it out and kick it around and stuff it back in him."
Schultz has also compared the Tea Party to Nazi Brown Shirts, asked if the term “whore” applied to Joe Lieberman’s wife, and claimed that conservative broadcasters want Obama shot.
And, that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
A more comprehensive list of the vile, repugnant venom coming out of Schultz’s mouth is provided in Bozell's letter to Griffin.
