Broadcaster Ed Schultz has died at the age of 64. Schultz was a former conservative radio host who remade himself as a liberal firebrand on MSNBC beginning in 2009, where, as host of “The Ed Show”, he championed progressive causes, like the 2011 uprising against Wisconsin Republican Governor Scott Walker’s anti-labor policies. After he was fired by MSNBC in 2015, Schultz declared the network was “in the tank for Hillary Clinton,” and said he was let go because of his support for independent Sen. Bernie Sanders.
