MSNBC's Ed Schultz is Paid to Shill for Unions

More journalistic integrity from the great Obama media shills on the left. Ed Schultz, slimeball extraordinaire is paid not just by MSNBC but by various unions to throw his daily red meat to the ultra lefties.

A Labor Department spokesman confirmed to NewsBusters that Schultz received $190,000 from CWA  in fiscal 2011, far from than the $7,500 he was paid by the union a year earlier. The spokesman said unions are mandated to report such payments as required by the Labor Management Reporting and Disclosure Act.
For its fiscal 2010 payment to Schultz, the union characterized the payment as pertaining to "union administration," according to Labor Department records.

The fiscal year before that, unions paid Schultz $42,500 -- $17,500 from the National Air Traffic Controllers Association, $10,000 from AFSMCE, and $7,500 each from the Building and Construction Trades union and International Brotherhood of Boilermakers. All were for "political activities," according to the Labor Department.
This is the guy who called Laura Ingraham a "right wing slut". (Obama forgot to call her about it).

Help Me, So That I Can Help YOU.

In Chicago they call it "Pay to Play".

"More than half of Obama’s 47 biggest fundraisers, those who collected at least $500,000 for his campaign, have been given administration jobs. Nine more have been appointed to presidential boards and committees.

At least 24 Obama bundlers were given posts as foreign ambassadors, including in Finland, Australia, Portugal and Luxembourg. Among them is Don Beyer, a former Virginia lieutenant governor who serves as ambassador to Switzerland and Lichtenstein."

These are not the people standing in the unemployment line so don't even joke that this helps the jobs issue.

Feminist Hypocrisy

Of course Sandra Fluke should not have been called a "slut". No woman should be. And that includes women who are not in the liberal camp.  Michelle Malkin daily target of some of the filthiest slurs that liberal thinkers can conjure up explains. Kirsten Powers of the Daily Beast gives her take as well.

Obama Administration Worst Transparency in Six Adminstrations

Obama declared his presidency would be the most open, honest and transparent in history.  It is just the opposite.  Chalk up another Obama falsehood. From Politico.

“Obama is the sixth administration that’s been in office since I’ve been doing Freedom of Information Act work. … It’s kind of shocking to me to say this, but of the six, this administration is the worst on FOIA issues. The worst. There’s just no question about it,” said Katherine Meyer, a Washington lawyer who’s been filing FOIA cases since 1978. “This administration is raising one barrier after another. … It’s gotten to the point where I’m stunned — I’m really stunned.”
I bet if you ask the average Obama supporter they're probably unaware of this also.

The administration has embarked on an unprecedented wave of prosecutions of whistleblowers and alleged leakers — an effort many journalists believe is aimed at blocking national security-related stories. “There just seems to be a disconnect here. You want aggressive journalism abroad; you just don’t want it in the United States,” ABC News correspondent Jake Tapper told White House press secretary Jay Carney at a recent briefing for reporters.

Imagine how George W. Bush would have been treated.  The main stream media totally ignores these issues with the current President. I find myself laughing at this stuff, but it's actually not funny.
