What's So Scary About Ed Schultz?

With all of his bluster, it seems that Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld might actually be afraid of something: Ed Schultz, a Fargo, N.D.-based progressive talk radio host who was supposed to premier this morning on Armed Forces Radio. Ed's would have been the only progressive show to air on AFR along with Far Righties Rush Limbaugh and Laura Ingraham. And ARF (I mean AFR) was only going to air the first hour of his three-hour show.

Coincidentally(?), it was Allison Barber -- the woman who coached the soldiers on last week's "conversation" between the President and soldiers in Iraq -- who made the cancellation call. Hmmmm.... think she was miffed at Ed's sharp comments about her coaching last week?

I guess Rummy can't trust our troops to hear BOTH sides of the story about what's happening in Iraq. Read more about what amounts to government censorship at the following blog sites:

Looks like our tax dollars are fueling a propaganda machine.
