MSNBC Boss Reprimands Ed Schultz for calling NJ Gov. ‘Cold-Hearted Fat Slob’

On his show last Friday, MSNBC’s Ed Schultz went off on New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and now TVNewser hears Schultz has been reprimanded by MSNBC president Phil Griffin. Here’s what Schultz said:

“Here’s the bottom line. What we’re seeing out of this governor of New Jersey is just go to the money, cut whoever you have to cut. There is no ramification for any of this because he’s a cold-hearted fat slob anyway…”

Just last month, Schultz got a talking to from Griffin and from NBC News president Steve Capus for yelling in the newsroom, “I’m going to torch this [bleep]ing place.” Schultz was upset about not being included in promotional spots for upcoming primary election coverage.
