Supposedly Progressive MSNBC Ordered Ed Schultz Not To Cover Bernie Sanders, Then Fired Him


“The fix was in.”

(Editor’s Note: One of the greatest republican myths is the one about the “liberal media”. Mainstream corporate media is occupied territory and generally not open to progressive candidates or opinion. While there are individual stories and occasional glimmers of fairness, ultimately, when it comes to mainstream media there is only one interest: MONEY. — Mark L. Taylor)

Former MSNBC host Ed Schultz opened up in a recent interview about why he believes he was fired in 2015. Schultz, who’s now anchor of a show on RT, told National Review‘s Jamie Weinsteinthat he believes it was because he supported Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), which was problematic, he charged, because the network was “in the tank for Hillary Clinton.

He described how MSNBC chief Phil Griffin was a “watchdog” who closely managed which stories were covered, and relayed one incident where his story about Sanders’s launch of his campaign was bumped in favor of other news.
