Medved To Defend Limbaugh On Schultz's TV Show Against Sharpton
December 13, 2010 at 11:13 AM (PT)
SALEM RADIO NETWORK host MICHAEL MEDVED will be on rival talker ED SCHULTZ' MSNBC "THE ED SHOW" TODAY to defend yet another talk host, PREMIERE's RUSH LIMBAUGH, against racism charges leveled on SCHULTZ' show against RUSH by a fourth talker, Rev. AL SHARPTON. The show will air at 6p (ET).
SRN VP of News & Talk programming TOM TRADUP said that MEDVED "has repeatedly been in the forefront of the battle to stop efforts to muzzle talk radio, whether through ill-advised regulations like the so-called 'Fairness' Doctrine or in thinly-veiled intimidation such as Rev. SHARPTON's publicity stunt appearing at the FCC. American radio listeners vote every day with their on/off switches, and for over 20 years the marketplace has made RUSH LIMBAUGH a leader in our industry. That may upset marginally-successful hosts like Rev. SHARPTON, but muzzling RUSH has about as much chance as NANCY PELOSI being elected the next RNC chairman."
