Time for Ed Schultz’ MSNBC show to be euthanized?

by editor on July 29, 2009

Tuesday, April 7, the day after Ed Schultz’ premiere show, MSNBC officials tried to put a happy face on the sad results by saying that they were “pleased” with the initial ratings and that they expected the show to grow over time.

After sixteen weeks on the air, MSNBC’s EdShow is on life support. Instead of growing, its ratings have gone down. In fact, they’re lower than those of David Schuster, who was booted from the time slot to make room for Schultz.

Program Date 25-54 Demo Total Audience
Schultz’ most recent Mon, July 27 121,000 501,000
Schultz’ premiere Mon, Apr 6 247,000 725,000
Schuster’s final Fri, Apr 4 153,000 579,000



We’d say it’s time to let this thing die with dignity, but it’s impossible to use the words “Ed Schultz” and “dignity” in the same sentence.

I am just astonished at not only his hatred of Republicans/Conservatives, but that as a talk show host, he leaves out crucial information. He leaves it out because if he told the truth, he’d have no liberal slant. Here’s my clincher: Based on him, Chris Mathews, Keith Olberman, Rachel Maddow, I WILL never be a liberal or progressive. Talk about no tolerance for diversity. All they do is slam people who aren’t liberal. I’m surprised MSNBC even has this line-up. I heard Keith Olberman call Conservatives this: they have brains full of syphillis. Now that’s perverse. MSNBC is spewing nothing but lies and untruths. What a horrible outfit.

(Health care reform. Doctors biggest parasites of all!) Big Bad Ed and gang: If you are suffering like most people with health problems, I suggest you go to a Quest diagnostic center near you and ask for a stool sample test kit to be sent off for a parasite analysis. I am fifty eight years old and have four different types of parasites feeding off of me. Stop supporting and letting the parasitic doctors feed off of you and your insurance company for life, the doctors have made a fortune feeding off all the systoms and illnesses these critters cause in your body. I asked my doctor three times for a requisition to have a parasite test done and finally after demanding it the third time he sent me to the lab next door to pick up a stool sample kit. Almost all diseases are now being linked to parasites and worm infestation, it is epidemic and don’t fall for that old misnomer that it’s only a third world country problem. Don’t be fooled it is right here right now! Einstein Mastermind, Huntington Beach, Ca.

EM, I will tell you what nobody will tell you, & you will hate it. Doctors are not the problem, but many of the rules & regulations are. There is no actual compitition in the insurance industry, & there will be no compitition until people can buy a policy that suits them FROM ANY STATE IN THE NATION, no matter what state you live in. If you live in a state & you only have 4 companies to buy from, when there are many more companies you could shop if allowed is just 1 problem. Not to mention slip & fall lawyers suing the sh!t out of doctors, & because their malpractice insurance is so expensive, they pass that cost on to the people in the form of higher prices. But those are just 2 things.

If things procede the way many who support Obama-care want them to, & control the system from the top down, you will be extremely luckey to actually be able to see a doctor. Greedy doctors will not take this BS Obama-care lying down, nope. You’ll see these greedy doctors refuse medacare & medacaid because the gov’t won’t pay them enough for their medical service. If these greedy doctors do in fact decide to cross their arms & say no, I will cheer. Yeah, hate me all you want, I am an evil consevative & a capitalist, so hate me. But it will get worse.

When greedy doctors decide that they cannot conduct buisiness here in America, they will go offshore. You may have to go see your doctor at his new office location somewhere in the Caribbean or maybe in Costa Rica. American doctors are already looking into setting up shop offshore to counter Obama-care & the restrictions that will come with it. So if you need medical care, & need it sooner rather then later, & if you don’t have a passport…sucks to be you.

EM, You might hate “parasitic doctors” & others they work with, but I speak for millions of Americans who are sick of PARASITIC CITIZENS WHO LEACH OFF OF THE TAXPAYERS. Too many people are too comfortable sitting on their ass not working, paying for their food with food-stamps(or an EBT card), living in public housing, & demanding more without contributing a damn thing. Might be hard notice that in Huntington Beach, but lots of other folks have noticed, & the end starts on November 2.

Just as a sidenote, the best way to kill many parasitic lifeforms that are harming people worldwide, not just here in America, was banned by the gov’t during the Nixon years, D D T. It’s harmless to people & it works, but it will never ne used again because of the green facists. It was banned because they could, for the sake of power. Bringing it back would be admitting Rachel Carson was wrong. That cannot be allowed to happen.

“IT’S TRUE… MOST HUMANS CRAWLING WITH CRITTERS AND FUNGAL INFECTIONS, YUCK!!!”
Finally, I can’t believe it….a straight thinking human being is out there!!!Believe it or not, research is now finding that almost all humans are loaded with worms, protozoan’s, parasites and larva, which are the number one cause of chronic inflammation, low grade fungal infections and other diseases. Antibiotics are useless against these organisms. Parasites and worms are the great masqueraders and don’t think for a second that you don’t have any. Get to your local diagnostic center and start getting a yearly stool sample test kit done for yourself. You will most likely be shocked at the results you get back. We humans are no different than having your dog or cat checked for worms annually. The medical doctors are just licking there chops, eager and anxious to hook you up to the medical merry-go-round for life, and of course working your insurance program into the ground, never getting at the root cause only treating symptoms, what a sweet, sweet, sweet, racket.

Subject: THE VOLUNTARY HONOR SYSTEM ONLY! HOT TOPICS.
(NO MO COURIER PAID POLITICIANS MORONS)

Dear Big bad Ed and gang: In ancient times all politicians served in public office on the honor system only, it was considered a great privilege to serve the people and there was no pay other than a few perks connected. We should all vote for a new amendment to be placed into effect immediately. In order to hold and serve in public office it would be strictly voluntary; this approach would also greatly reduce corruption. It is a real disgrace to see rich candidates and politicians being paid when they are already filthy rich and equally as bad, when a politician has become a permanent fixture for fifty years in office like the late senator Bird, (courier barnacles). This is really a no brainer. Einstein Mastermind, Huntington Beach, Ca.

I long for the day when we can return to an age when leaders served on the honor system and received little (if any) compensation for their efforts. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been inspired of stories about Julius Caesar having to take out a title loan on his car so that he could continue to make his sacrifice as dictator for life. Even more inspiring was the example that Alexander the Great and Ghengivitis Khan gave us when they had to move into public housing together and sell plasma down in front of the Y and eventually moved to New York city and tried get jobs as paid companions for lonely old women but just ended up as extras in some pretty weird Andy Warhol films. It is just that sort of mentality that we all have got to get back to in this country. George Washington really screwed us all when he took a salary for being President because he was afraid that serving in such a position for free would guarantee that only independently wealthy people would seek the job. This is really a sans cerveau. Heisenberg Mastermind; attached to a particle that no one can find.

You are correct Einstein Mastermind. Suggesting that Julius Caesar had a car and took out a title loan on it or creating a portmanteau out of Genghis Khan’s name and a common gum disease is absurd. Almost absurd as suggesting that once upon an ancient time leaders served on the honor system and without compensation. The main difference, however, is that I was not serious.

And he constantly says that the Republicans need to be taken out…..and he says conservatives are violent. He is a horrible human being and if he is an example of Progressives, I don’t every want to be one nor do I want to be even around one.

To:Big bad Ed: I have never heard anyone ever touch on this subject.
Subject: WE NEED A FOR REAL F TROOP!Dear Ed and gang: For years, I have wondered why in the heck don’t they take all these so called tough guys/prison gang bangers between the age of twenty and forty years of age, serving long prison sentences and train them to do very simple tasks for the military. Like maybe send them into areas of a combat zone that need to be swept for land mines, or just scouting and radio communications / Intel, in dangerous areas. There are hundreds of thousands of youngsters in our prisons and jails across this country that could be put to good use instead of having them rot away for years incarcerated into useless nothingness, as permanent tax payer’s dependents. A real simple program is all that is needed, a Latino F troop trained and controlled by a Latino commander and the same for a black F troop and a Caucasian one as well. You can’t make the training as tough as the regular military; keep it real simple, basics only. You would most likely find a whole lot of them would adapt and turn their lives around. A pilot program and trial team should definitely be put into effect; no human being is beyond usefulness. Languishing worthlessly in prisons is a disgrace to the human race.

I have a house near Poughkeepsie, NY, and just have to share this
LETTER TO THE EDITOR :

Poughkeepsie Journal, Saturday, October 16, 2010.

Why I plan to vote the Republican Party line in November: Their honesty.

In January 2009, they admitted they are the “just say ‘no’ party,” because they want our country to fail, and they excel at it. They gave us the Great Depression of 1929. Then stupidly we let the tax-and-spend Democrats run the country for about 45 years of normalcy and prosperity. In 1980, we woke up and put the fiscal conservative Republicans back in power. Two years later we were back in recession. Then they ran up the nation’s debt to the point it took 30 percent of some of President Reagan’s budgets just to pay interest on the national debt. Then in 1992 we stupidly elected that tax-and-spend Democrat Bill Clinton as president. He gave us eight years of an economic boom and high standard of living. But we returned to sanity in 2000 and put the Republicans back in power. It only took them six years to destroy our economy. With a track record like that, I have to support the Republican Party.

I have to stop now. The paddy wagon just showed up to take me back to the insane asylum.

MSNBC lives for ridiculing people; they get off on it and that’s why the ratings are so low. Americans want people to engage and challenge, but not ridicule one another. When people do that, it’s because they have no point of view to defend, so they attack and always go below the belt. That’s MSNBC in a nutshell.

I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a bigger blow-hard and clueless idiot than Ed. This guy is totally out of touch with reality, much like “his” fearless leader in the white house. Ed is nothing more than a circus sideshow. What a joke

Ed Schultz appalls me. His hate and his lies (I have fact-checked his words) should not be condoned by any media source. He has taken free-speech too far. If he is an example of the Progressive Movement, count me out. He has no civility at all. With the loss of Alan Grayson (D-Florida) this week whom Ed Schultz just loved, he needs to be careful about his spiteful, hateful rhetoric. Average Americans do not like hate speech and nasty rhetoric when trying to challenge their opponents. It can be done without the ugly tone. He and Grayson are twins in hatred. And just who is dividing this country? The hate from the left on a daily basis is enough for me to run as far as I can to the right and I was a Jack Kennedy Democrat but those people are now extinct. Please take Ed Schultz OFF THE AIR ASAP! He is a disgrace to America.

Ed is like Olberman. A mean spirited, nasty, punk ass libtard. I can’t wait ’till Comcast takes over pmsnbc. Those two, along with Chrissy “Tingle” Matthews, and tuna breath Rachel Mancow will be packing their bags.

Ed Shultz has to be the most pathetic news commentator on national television, followed by Kieth Olberman. Is MSNBC that desperate. What a shameful organization. Doomsday is not far off.

Yes they are that desperate, & the worst person there is 1 you did’nt mention. Al Sharpton, a man who has blood on his hands, & is an extortionist. He has never earned an honest dollar in his life.

Ed Schultz now goes up against O’Reilly at 8 PM. What a massacre! But MSNBC has settled on the model of throwing red meat to a few hundred thousand far leftists. MSNBC can’t pull a million viewers in prime time while Beck was pulling 2 or 3 million at 5PM on Fox.
