Ed Schultz Tells Liberals to Shut Up Over Santorum CriticismOn Tuesday, we published the video of liberal MSNBC commentator Ed Schultz praising Rick Santorum. Not that he agreed with Santorum’s policies, but he thought Santorum’s presence on the campaign trail was as good as Barack Obama’s. And if conservatives found that shocking, it seems liberals found it even more so. How do we know? Well, Schultz posted a frustrated YouTube video on Wednesday where he responded to those liberals who have been furious with him. And he didn’t mince words.

HuffPo explains:

Schultz took to his blog to address critics who, according to Schultz, accused him of “eating Santorum’s salad,” and calling him a “turncoat.”

Schultz had a simple response: “shut up!” Schultz seemed frustrated by the criticism and said he went “as an objective reporter” to find out what was happening on the ground in Iowa. “Whether you like it or not,” Shutlz said, “Santorum is as good as President Obama with a crowd.”

Schultz said that the criticism “kind of pissed him off” but did not get “under [his] skin.” Shultz asked, “are we at the point now on the Ed Show, that I can’t go out and do an objective story?”
