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.
