Schultz may have "suspended" himself, staying one step ahead of his network, but the proverbial toothpaste was already out of the tube. Laurence, I sense the knee-jerk double standard of the group you speak for...the same group, by the way, that called for the boycott on Rush. A boycott that failed, but also an attempt (again) at stifling comment. You should be ashamed, but I suspect you're not. Indeed you feel a sense of self-righteousness.

After Ed Schultz called Laura Ingraham a "slut", he apologized profusely and actually imposed a suspension on HIMSELF. And if Dick Cheney had died even before he gulled 'W' into naming him VP, the latter might not have involved the country in its biggest misadventure.

Losing a hundred million bucks in under a year takes some doing. Do these guys not understand that "Field of Dreams" was just a metaphor?

One more thing: some of you sound like you're ready to dispense with the First Amendment. Maybe, just maybe, DG's problems are due in larger part to their own business policies.

Of course, it could not have been Ed Schultz who called Laura Ingraham a "slut" and wished Dick Cheney would die, already. No, those remarks were not outrageous or any cause of advertiser discomfort. It's difficult to believe just how ignorant some of the people who have commented here can be. Or, is it just more of the same media bias that we already are forced to swallow by national news outlets. Anyone here have a problem with Bill Maher and what he says? No ads, so no problem?

None of the hosts you mentioned, including Rush, are Dial Global people. DG hosts are Ed Schultz, Dennis Miller, Bill Press, Neal Boortz, Stephanie Miller and Thom Hartmann.
