GLENN: For those of you who don't know who Ed Schultz is, I can't help you, except he's a guy who was hired by the left and brought on to be the next Rush Limbaugh. I believe he had a front page New York Times cover story when he first came on that he was the next Rush Limbaugh. Basically as Stu describes it, because what the left does is they see successful people on the right and say, okay, well, I get that. All he does is scream about hate. So we can do that; let's just get somebody on the air to scream about hate. I mean, that's ‑‑ I mean ‑‑
STU: The entire formula, yes.
GLENN: They think that's the formula, and it has nothing to do with hate or screaming. But so they hire, you know, and they pump up Ed Schultz and then he fails miserably at radio and they immediately do what the left always does. They promote him and they put him on against me and say he's going to be the next Glenn Beck. I don't think the world needs another Glenn Beck, quite honestly. I don't think the world is looking for another Glenn Beck. But what does Glenn Beck do? Apparently I just scream about hate. And so then they have him scream about hate on television. That's pretty much who Ed Schultz is and that's pretty much why nobody listens to him or watches him, and we don't usually mention him.
But I did see this because I think there's a meltdown coming at MSNBC. I think these guys are ‑‑
PAT: Oh, yeah.
GLENN: These guys are everything that they claim the right is. You know, they claim the right is out of control and hate mongers and everything else. These guys, when they lose, they are not going to understand it and they don't ‑‑ you know, they don't ‑‑ they're crazy. I think they're crazy. Olbermann is certainly crazy and what's his face. I don't know enough about him, nor do I care to learn much about him. But if this isn't crazy, apparently this happened in the newsroom at MSNBC. Ed Schultz was in the newsroom and he was irate over not being included in election night promos and he yelled in the middle of the newsroom, I'm going to torch this F'ing place.
PAT: Because he didn't get a promo?
GLENN: I guess.
PAT: Really? He's going to burn it down?
GLENN: He's going to burn down NBC.
PAT: I've heard this kind of rhetoric before.
GLENN: I have, too, and it's usually from people like Ed.
PAT: Yes, yes.
GLENN: An astonished MSNBC ‑‑ now, what do you have to do to astonish MSNBC staff? Astonished NBC staff felt silent. Schultz glared around the room and then just yelled F'ers.
PAT: Genius. That's genius.
STU: What an idiot.
PAT: That's a good way to get promos on the air.
GLENN: One source added Schultz was told if you do that again, you're fired and he broke down crying.
PAT: What? Really?
GLENN: I'm not kidding. This is from MSNBC.
STU: You only cry because you fear for our country. He fears for the building burning down.
PAT: Or his job.
STU: Or his job, one of the two.
GLENN: I will tell you I've seen his ratings and he is burning the F'ing place down without a match.
PAT: You know the sad part of that is, though, they are all in serious, serious trouble when Comcast takes over and I'd hate to see anything happen to any of them. And I mean that from the bottom of my heart. I don't want any of them to go.
STU: I want them forever, yeah.
PAT: I want them all to stay forever.
GLENN: Oh, no, they are the best thing.
PAT: They are the best thing that ever happened to Fox News.
