Newsbusters– Due to extremely poor ratings, MSNBC formally announced Thursday it will bring down the ax on Ed Schultz and Alex Wagner. It turns out hate-mongering against conservative Republicans and sucking up to far-left Democrats is not a great way to attract large audiences.
Schultz: “It Amazes Me that People Don’t Love Obama”
In his time in the anchor chair on The Ed Show, Schultz accused Republicans of wanting to murder old people –“The Republicans lie! They want to see you dead!”– and couldn’t believe President Barack Obama didn’t have sky-high approval ratings: “It amazes me that people don’t love Obama.”
Alex Wagner’s run on her eponymously named show Now with Alex Wagner included ridiculous overplaying of the race card — “Usage of the word ‘thug’ spiked on Monday…Some people are saying the ‘T’ word is the new ‘N’ word”– and silly sucking-up, as she gushed to Chelsea Clinton: “I must bring up the fact that your mother — she graced us all. Everyone is thrilled that she is now on Twitter.”
