Ed Schultz: Former MSNBC Host and Radio Personality Passes Away at 64

Ed Schultz has passed his lake home in Minnesota.

The former MSNBC host and radio personality died from natural causes.

Schultz was 64 years old.

Schultz began his career in Fargo, broadcasting the news on both TV and radio in the 1890s.

Eventually, he began work as a commentator and host at MSNBC.

He was known for his progressive values, particularly as he championed the rights of workers.

He was a passionate defender of middle class and working class Americans, and used his show as a platform on which to espouse those values.

The Ed Show was broadcast on weekday afternoons until its cancelation in 2015.

In 2016, Ed Schultz puzzled some with his controversial choice.

After years of verbally excoriating Russian President Vladimir Putin, he went to work for the American version of RT, Russia’s state-controlled media and Putin’s personal propaganda machine.

But Schultz objected to the characterization, and explained his choice.

“RT completes the picture of the events in the U.S. and around the globe,” Schultz said. “Giving viewers access to a range of stories, voices and opinions, and a real opportunity to speak their minds.”

There are certainly plenty of arguments in favor of keeping an eye on how even hostile foreign governments are presenting the news.

Ed Schultz married his current wife, Wendy Schultz, in 1998.

Just a few years before his death, he revealed her struggle with ovarian cancer.

Wendy is the mother of Ed’s six children.

It was in seeking medical treatment for his mother during her battle with Alzheimer’s in the 1990s that his political leanings swung towards the left.

Ed has stated that he and his sons are gun owners, but that he supports certain gun control regulations.

He has stated that he does not believe in abortion because of his Christian beliefs, but he has also acknowledged that Roe v Wade is the law of the land.

Ed passed away on Thursday, July 5 of natural causes.

His death came as a shock to people who had followed his career for years or even decades, going back to when he was a sportscaster in Fargo.

Ed had friendships on both sides of the political aisle. Standing up for working Americans should not be considered partisan.

Ed Schultz will be sorely missed by his friends and loved ones.


Tom Brady Goes OFF On Radio Host Who Mocked His Daughter

In just six days, the New England Patriots will face off against the Philadelphia Eagles in what may well prove to be one of the most lopsided Super Bowls in NFL history.

Between his team’s obnoxious dominance of the AFC, his history of shrugging off cheating allegations, and a haircut that makes him look like a guy who would happily park his Lamborghini in a handicapped space, it’s not hard to see why Pats QB Tom Brady is so widely despised.

But even when doling out some well-deserved trash talk to Tom Terrific, it’s important to observe Mafia rules:

You have to leave the man’s wife and children out of it, and you can only put a severed horse head in his bed if you’re a vengeance-seeking Colts fan.

Unfortunately, a co-host of a Boston radio show failed to adhere to that code of conduct, which means he’ll soon be “deflated” by Brady’s team of “equipment managers.”

(That means he’ll be stabbed repeatedly.)

Now, being a member of the Boston sports media means publicly fellating misters Brady, Belichick, and Kraft in hopes that one day Bill Simmons will offer you a job ghost-writing his 14,000-word listicles cataloging the most underrated quotes from The Wire.

WEEI host Alex Reimer broke the rules in a big way last week by referring to Brady’s daughter as a “an annoying little pissant.”

The comment was made in response to a scene in the hagiographic documentary Tom Against Time, which apparently features a scene in which Brady’s daughter behaves in a way that Reimer deemed unacceptable.

Brady is a weekly guest on Reimer’s show (talk about biting the injured throwing hand that feeds you) and needless to say, this morning’s interview was a mite tense:

“I’ve tried to come on this show for many years and showed you guys a lot of respect,” Brady said Monday before abruptly ending the conversation.

“I’ve always tried and come on and do a good job for you guys. It’s very disappointing when you hear that, certainly. My daughter, or any child, certainly don’t deserve that,” he added.

“I really don’t have much to say about it this morning.”

We kid Tom, but in all seriousness, it’s beyond uncool to talk trash a public figure’s kid.

Besides, this is Tom Brady we’re talking about.

Despite his many accomplishments and rugged good looks, the guy’s life is a treasure trove of shade-throwing possibilities.

How about the allegations that he banged Ivanka Trump?

Or the fact that Tom keeps trying and failing to convince the press that he’s not friends with Floyd Mayweather because his wife is understandably less than thrilled by the fact that he hangs with convicted wife beaters?

Or better yet, why not just be good sports and hope that Brady gets repeatedly pounded into the turf and humiliated in front of the world’s largest television audience on Sunday?
