Politico’s Dylan Byers writes about MSNBC going quiet about Joe Scarborough keynoting a GOP fundraiser after Ed Schultz was forced to pull out of keynoting a Democrat party fundraiser…
Back in February, MSNBC host Ed Schultz was forced to cancel his keynote address at a Democratic fundraising event in Florida due to a network policy prohibiting hosts from participating in political fundraisers.
But now that MSNBC host Joe Scarborough is scheduled to give a keynote address at a Republican fundraising event in New Hampshire, MSNBC has gone silent. Lauren Skowronski, the network’s vice president of media relations, did not respond to four emails requesting comment on Scarborough’s attendance at the event. (She did respond to an email wishing her a happy birthday.)
If MSNBC lets him, that is. And if they do, it will be hard to justify why they didn’t let Ed Schultz speak to Florida Democrats.
