Ed Schultz, Who Reportedly Threatened to Set Fire to 30 Rock, Opened Show with 'Burning Down the House'
"I’m going to torch this [bleep]ing place." That's what an angry Ed
Schultz reportedly threatened at a testy August 2010 exchange with the
suits at MSNBC. Schultz was reportedly fired up because, "the network
was running election-night promos and he wasn’t in them. He’d been
arguing on the phone with marketing, then he slammed down the phone and
exploded," a witness to the outburst told the New York Post.
So imagine our glee this afternoon when ol' Ed opened up his September
23 program with a montage featuring, wait for it, "Burning Down the
House," by The Talking Heads.
