Ed Schultz Is Defending Donald Trumpís RT America Interview

Source: Mediaite

Liberal TV host and former MSNBC star Ed Schultz put out a video Friday in which he lit into the Clinton campaign and the media for raising questions over Donald TrumpĎs Thursday night appearance on his current network.

Trump spoke with Larry King on his Russia Today show, which was intriguing to some because it meant that Trump was following his most recent Vladimir Putin sweet-talk by appearing on the Kremlinís own network. That interest was compounded by the fact that discussion focused on whether Russian agents were responsible for the DNC hack right before their convention months ago.

These factors have caused both Hillary Clinton and numerous media figures to alternatively question and highlight Trumpís cozy relationship with the Russian president. Schultz is also an anchor for RT America, and he lashed out at Clinton, the media, and CNN in particular for insinuating that Trumpís interview was ďunpatriotic.Ē

Schultz lambasted Clinton for never having granted interviews to the network, and said the idea that Putin hacked the DNC was manufactured by her campaign. Schultz invited her campaign to come on his show, but said they will not because connecting Trump to Putin is Clintonís top strategy to win the White House.

Fuck you, Ed, you big, fat Russian tool. Hope RT's 30 pieces of silver were worth it.



Guess the sell-out missed the part where Trump himself called on the Russians to keep hacking.

time ago. He's even talked about it many times. The point is he changed and has become more left that ever; to the point that the corporate whores at MSNBC ended him there. I'm glad to hear Ed on a network that also presents people like Thom Hartmann and Christopher Hayes.

I guess those people are too Russian Red for your delicate sensibilities, too.

100. Are you supporting russia?

I totally loathe russia under Pootey Poot because it's a violent dictatorship, not a haven for workers, totally the opposite. Putin is nothing but murdering and country thieving thug and can't believe I'm seeing even a hint of approval here. This is a country that puts gays in jail, won't let them work and that is actively trying to steal Ukraine back.

I'm about as far left as they come, love the socialism practiced in Europe, but Russia is not even in the same class at all. Their communism is really just a type of oligarchy and now a dictatoriship.

or Christopher Hayes show (if you can find it (Sat 8-8:30pm CST but its called the wrong name, RT is a bunch of idiots when it comes to publishing their schedule properly) or Lee Camps satire.

RT will report things on their general news programs more in the region of Russian or the banned Russian athletes saga, but so what? Its no more than any crap reported in this country's "news" organization that glosses over Americas bullshit in the world or puts dome corporate spin on it. Ignore that if you want. It's not hard if you have half a brain.

There is simply too much good news and programs available on RT that you will not be able to obtain on the US Corporate Controlled "news" and the whores that work it.

... because he say things that serve their agenda. RT America is a very sophisticated propaganda operation. It's "real" enough to be convincing to a receptive audience, but make no mistake, The Kremlin does not fund news which does not serve their interests.

Sadly too many Americans have lost the ability to make their own judgements. No more critical thinking. Just be fed what they want to hear instead of "we report (as WE see it, actually); you decide." Ironic what outfit came up with that idea. As a liberal, I wanted to make myself familiar with Fox "news." I wonder if most of these outraged RT critics have thoughtfully really watched RT. Well, if it means they won't vote for Trump, I guess I'll give them a pass.

76. Is that really what they call it?



RT, originally Russia Today, is a television network funded by the Russian government.[5][6] It operates cable and satellite television channels directed to audiences outside of Russia as well as providing Internet content in various languages, including Russian.

RT has frequently been called a propaganda outlet for the Russian government[12][13][14] and its foreign policy[12][14][15][16] by news reporters,[17][18] including former RT reporters.[19][20][21] RT has also been accused of spreading disinformation.[18][22][23][24][25] The United Kingdom media regulator, Ofcom, has repeatedly found RT to have breached rules on impartiality, and of broadcasting "materially misleading" content.[26][27][28] RT states that it merely offers a Russian perspective on global events.

I never claimed every single aspect of RT was Putin propaganda, so by claiming that's what I wrote and proceeding to destroy your own manufactured argument is the epitome of strawman bullshit.

By doubling down on this nonsense even after being called out for it, you've now gone into strawman suckage[sup]2[/sup] territory.

If Hartmann is so desperate for either money or airtime (or both) that he wants to legitimize a despot's mouthpiece by associating with him, then fuck him too. I wouldn't tune into that network if they had exclusive rights to broadcast the second coming of Jebus.

MSNBC has never been a liberal, anti-fox network. To think so is silly. They're a profit making operation based on advertising and eyeballs. Nothing more. Nothing less. If Schultz had said he ate kittens for breakfast every morning, and it sold, he'd still be prime time.

I may be misinterpreting this, but you seem to be anti Democratic principals, so why are you here? RT can have some good (to me) programming, but it never ever allows the truth about putin or russia and is only a propaganda machine for them. Yes, they like the anti-corporate talk from america, but covering the hacking of our political system by their country, the deliberate destabilization of Ukraine and efforts to steal that country, nope you will never ever hear a word about that there.

26. RT, originally Russia Today, is a television network funded by the Russian government

"RT has frequently been called a propaganda outlet for the Russian government and its foreign policy by news reporters, including former RT reporters. RT has also been accused of spreading disinformation.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RT_(TV_network)

Also I believe Mr. Schultz is endorsing Stein, so as far as I am concerned, he is an idiot.

He also is dumber than a toad

34. Which is why I watch Hartmann's show, and a couple of others. I really do not care that

 

much about RT news, any more so than MSM "news". Still they do provide information which is often better than the crap you see on MSNBC, etc. I also like Ed Schultz, regardless who he endorses (as long as it is not Trump), because he actually speaks to issues that the majority of the people in this country care about.

58. Which is fucking easy to do; sure I appreciate it, but I would rather have better news on many

 

other subjects that MSNBC anchors have to be careful where they tread. I know Trump sucks worse than anything we have seen in our politics at that level (presidential) since I remember, probably in the history of this country.

If I want real information I'll listen to Hartmann on RT and his show, or Amy Goodman. IF I want real deep analysis Christoer HAyes. Decent reporting on working people's issues, injustices, Ed Shultz, he is there with that. I don't see it on American MSM including MSNBC which is why I gave up on that mess a long time ago. the amount of viewing I would have to waste on them is to have some kernel of truth is not worth it.

Hillary Clinton is on firm ground to suspect the Russians while pounding Trump for inviting Russia to hack away.

Schultz should reconcile the disparity relational to his slam on Clinton. If he cannot, he should apologize.

53. Valid but irrlevant points; his slam is for them conflating Trump with Putin using RT

 

news interview. that is the stupidity here. They are as valid as any other news organization to interview Trump.

These hacks into the DNC are not clear who did it at this point. It could be Russia. I would also suspect the Republican party. They did hack the Democrats in the House and Senate computers back during Bu$hitCo's years, as I recall.

The other problem is this information that was hacked as not been shown to be false. It was true! Oppps!

Now, I think Trump has something going on with either Putin or Russian oligarchic (re: criminal) interests for his business deals/funding and he is very suspect for that. Yet all we keep hearing is Hillary's emails or some half assed hack of mysterious origins. Where is the real investigation into Trump?? Given the state of our media and politics, we may never know.

All people can do here is try to make this mole hill into some russian-commie mountain while there is much good information and programs available on RT News. We just cut off our own noses for little petty bullshit and dubious gains.

I'll take the information I see on RT like Thom Hartmann or Christpher Hayes or Ed Shultx (who has really reported on the Indian protests on the pipeline) over any shit form the American MSM. For American news I would take Colbert or the Daily Show or Larry Wilmore show (RIP) or BBC News any day.

57. Relevant correspondent to the clarity of

Schultz's denigration of the Democratic candidate.

To my knowledge there is no comprehensive / verifiable source that presents what was hacked or who did the hacking, but apart from what is apparently our mutual disregard for mainstream media, media, including MSM outlets, are within bounds to report the FBI's assertion that Russia appears to be a taproot suspect for the hack.

We will or we will not ever know, but in the meanwhile, any media source reporting on this event has some in-zone and firm-ground obligation to reference the FBI's public statements.

Millions of Russians are watching one of our top political leaders say that their corrupt dictator is superior and stronger than the United States' weak kneed President. Who does that serve? Whose interests are advanced here? Sure not the United States.

Instead, it lends legitimacy to a dictator who is the antithesis of American values.

Would be one thing to say that it has not been uncommon for American politicians to appear on RT. So no big deal,but insinuate that the Clinton campaign is manufacturing news to villify Trump in regards to Putin is totally dishonest. No news needs to manufacture about Trump. His own mouth does it for him. He's an asshole.
