ED SCHULTZ PASSES AWAY …
Today it comes as a surprise that longtime broadcaster Ed Schultz has died at the age if 64. Media reports state that he dies of “natural causes” as Schultz passed quietly early morning on July 5 at his home in Washington, D.C. I can’t say I agreed with much Ed Schultz had to say, although I can agree that passing away at the age of 64 is far too young. After his show was canceled at MSNBC Schultz joined TT America to produce “The News with Ed Schultz.” As reported at the Washington Free Beacon, Schultz and his new show were criticized by many of his fellow progressives for taking a new positive tone towards both Russian President Vladimir Putin and Republican President Donald Trump. None more evident where I never agreed more with Ed Schultz as he ripped Hillary Clinton a new one for not having the common decency to give her concession speech, but instead prolonging the BS by sending out her campaign chair Podesta instead. Schultz stated, this is the same campaign that was questing Trump to how he would handle the outcome of the election.”
Schultz rips Hillary Clinton for not speaking on election night
Ed Schultz, the longtime broadcaster who churned up the Fargo-Moorhead area airwaves before moving into the national spotlight as a progressive firebrand, died of natural causes Thursday, July 5, at his home in Washington, D.C.
Schultz, the host of “The News With Ed Schultz” on RT America, was 64.
“We at RT America are sad to announce the passing of Edward Andrew Schultz. Ed Schultz passed quietly early morning on July 5 at his home in Washington, D.C. This announcement comes as a shock to all of us here at RT America,” the network said in a statement.
Schultz never shied away from controversy. If anything, he sought it out.
He was a man of contrasts. A political chameleon with a driving ambition. [...]
In 2004, Schultz took his radio show nationwide. Then in 2009, he moved to national television, becoming a prime-time progressive voice on MSNBC through 2015, when his show was dropped.
He started his job at RT America, formerly called Russia Today, in early 2016, hosting the half-hour show “The News With Ed Schultz.”
Schultz, who was critical of Russian President Vladimir Putin while at MSNBC, said when he took the RT job that he didn’t anticipate any problems. “Nobody is going to tell Ed Schultz what to say,” he told The Forum.
