U.S. labor unions paid MSNBC “Ed Show” host Ed Schultz roughly $200,000 in 2011, and roughly $337,000 over the last seven years, according to Department of Labor documents.

Newsbusters first reported that the liberal TV talker received $190,000 from the Communications Workers of America for “representational activities” in 2011. CWA president Larry Cohen is a regular guest on Schultz’s radio program.


The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers also paid Schultz $9,900 last year.

The unions classified the 2010 payments to Schultz as “union administration” expenses, according to Labor Department records.

Schultz’s union salaries doubled since the debut of “The Ed Show” on MSNBC in 2009.

    But Special Ed wouldn’t say anything bias!

    His show should have a disclaimer before it begins so people won’t confuse it with “Reality”.

    I do love his hat!!

    So let me see, that makes him a paid mouthpiece on MSNBC for the CWA and other unions.

    Well, that tells me how stupid the union hacks are. Mr. Ed would be their mouthpiece for free!

    In the America of 20 years ago he would be shamed out of his position of influence. In today’s Immoralica, he will be given an award for service to mankind……

    Wasn’t the stated reason Olbermann was forced out of MSNBC (besides being a dickhead) that he contributed money to candidates? Yet, MSNBC will probably keep a guy around who actually takes money from the special interest groups he shills for.

    Wonder why the medias not pushing their little liberal fairness in media act?

    You know the one where an apposing view gets equal time?
    Shit like this (pun intended) needs to be exposed.
