Ed Schultz on Why He’s Not Being Sidelined


MSNBC host Ed Schultz was not at all happy with Politico writer Dylan Byers’s characterization of his new time slot on weekend afternoons as “a relative no-man’s land for cable news programming.” So he used his final weekday prime-time sign-off to explain why he thinks going on from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturdays is a good thing. “Just remember one thing liberals: At 5:00 on Saturday afternoon, the biggest brand in liberal talk gets the first whack at the Sunday shows.” So take that, Chris Hayes! (Actually he said Hayes was “going to do a fantastic job.”)
