The Ed Show Incites Violence?

Posted in MSNBC on January 28, 2012 by icn2

NewsBusters’ Jack Coleman writes about The Ed Show posting a questionable tweet on its crawl…

Here’s a tweet that appeared while Schultz was talking with Dionne —

Next time Jan Brewer sticks her finger in President’s face, the Secret Service should break it & drop her. #edshow #p2

The tweet came from a Twitter user named “chaplinlives” who resides in Massachusetts — or as we happy few conservatives with domiciles here call it, the People’s Republic of Taxachusetts. Consider yourself warned — “chaplinlives” uses a photo of a lion for a Twitter avatar (No, not the one in “The Wizard of Oz”), so he or she is not to be trifled with.

MSNBC should not have run that tweet. There have to be some standards in what is allowable from viewer commentary. This one crosses a line that The Ed Show shouldn’t have crossed.
