Insufferable airhorn Ed Schultz, formerly of MSNBC, has landed a peach of a job with Russia Today as a mouthpiece for the Kremlin-backed television organization.
Of his new job Schultz said, "I am very happy to cooperate with RT. This television organization has firmly outlined its position in American media, representing the interests of different corporations. RT is not afraid to acquaint the audience with an alternative point of view, new voices and fresh story, even if it is not to the liking of some members of the mainstream. The news channel that talks with such persistence to the problems of ordinary Americans is perfectly suited for my program. "
"For the launch of the TV channel RT America, we knew that the only way to conquer the American audience was to be different, to cover stories that ignore the mainstream. And this approach is fully justified,” said chief editor of RT Margarita Simonyan. “That is why stars of American journalism like Ed Schultz join the team RT.”
How hard can it be to become a Russian bullshit artist after spending all those years being a liberal apologist? Just don’t eff up Eddie. I hear Siberia can be a little chilly.
