MSNBC’s Ed Schultz took umbrage, to say the least, at New York Times reporter Brian Stelter’s suggestion that times may be a changin’ at MSNBC, with the Washington Post’s Ezra Klein booting Schultz from his 8 p.m. time slot. On Schultz’s radio show, he “refuted” Stelter’s report, declaring:
Ed Schultz being replaced at 8 p.m. Not so fast! . . .I have overperformed in my time period for the third quarter and on my way to do that in the fourth quarter of this year, which puts me in bonus territory. You know, money? I mean, that’s how well we’re doing at 8 o’clock.
Schultz went on to say that he’s “arrived,” and that “life is good.” Which, you know, leads me to believe he hasn’t, and it isn’t. Listen to the whole thing below.
