As reported earlier, Ed Schultz found himself in some hot water for calling right wing radio host and Fox pundit Laura Ingraham a "right wing slut" on his radio show this Tuesday. Schultz apologized tonight during the intro to his nightly television show on MSNBC.

MSNBC has suspended Schultz for one week without pay for the incident.

While I cannot and do not condone the kind of sexist remark made by Schultz and there is no excuse for what he said, someone let me know when anyone on right wing radio or over at Fox ever gets some time off or apologizes for the kind of sexist or racist remarks we hear out of their mouths on a weekly basis, will you?

Can you help us out?
