Ed Schultz wants to socialize the airwaves

by editor on March 25, 2010

You have to feel sorry for poor Ed Schultz. No one watches his television show. No one listens to his radio show. If it weren’t for websites like IHateTheMedia.com, no one would know he exists.

But Big Eddie has a solution for that problem. Socialize the airwaves. Give him as many stations as Rush Limbaugh.

The only problem with that theory is that no matter how many stations Ed was on, he would still have no listeners.

Here’s an edited clip of some of Ed’s more noteworthy rants from a recent show:

Schultz: It is a cultural war that’s taking place in America, you’re exactly right. And it’s being played out over the airwaves of America. And I hope the Democrats now turn to the Fairness Doctrine.

It’s time now for the Democrats to consider the Fairness Doctrine when you’ve got Rush Limbaugh out there saying, it’s, we’ve got to defeat these bastards. He is now openly admitting that he is going to work against and campaign against the Republican, against the Democratic Party and campaign against Obama, and he is motivating people with the microphone and he’s electioneering. Keep on talking, Rushsky! Hell, maybe I’ll get on 600 stations too, or how many you own or whatever.

The fact is, look, it’s not a level playing field when it comes to the audio culture of the country. Ownership has its privileges. When you own, I will be honest, if I owned 500 stations, the drugster wouldn’t be on any of ’em. And that’s just where it’s at right now. But maybe we have reached the point where the Congress needs to equal it out. Equal out the audience.

Schultz: Just keep in mind, there aren’t any poor people with microphones.

Schultz: And so, I think that, you know, hell, if we’re going to be socialist, let’s be socialist all across the board.

Ed’s slogan?

Equal time, not equal talent.
