Ed Shultz suspended for calling Lara Ingram names.
Now for those who do not know Brian Sapient was a guest on the Lara Ingram show. Brian can tell you and anyone who listened to that segment can tell you, she pulled every dishonest tactic we commonly hear from theists outside that show.
But Should Ed Shultz apologize for calling her a "right wing slut".
Is "fair is fair" when the left rightfully condemns assholes like Rush and Beck when they shoot their mouths off.
I am not making this out to be a censorship issue. MSNBC did what it wanted to in suspending Shultz and Shultz did what he wanted to in apologizing. THAT is fair in the free market.
WHAT I am talking about as far as "fair" is how much should the left put up with before we fight back?
She is not a "slut" in the literal sense that she is a street hooker in real life. BUT she most certainly makes her living vying for the attention of the right wing, like a hooker winks at drivers passing by.
It was a metaphor to say, "She is way too far in bed with the right wing loonies". In that sense she IS a slut. She will stop at nothing to get attention from the right wing and demonize the left. While the free market took its course I don't know if I personally would have backed off that statement.
Calling her a "right wing slut" is apt, unlike Beck's statement "he has a deep seeded hatred of white people" in regards to Obama, which was beyond the pale and nowhere near accurate.
