Ed Schultz: Conservatives Control 90% Of Media

Posted: Updated:

MSNBC host Ed Schultz says that 90 percent of the media is controlled by conservatives (via NYO).

Schultz made the comments earlier this week on a panel during Al Sharpton's National Action Network conference.

"We have to be very cognizant of the fact that 90 percent of the electronic media in this country is owned, operated, programmed and controlled by conservatives," he said. "They made a concerted effort during and before the Reagan years that they were going to get the microphone. Whether you're in favor of or against or understand the fairness doctrine, it's neither here nor there...the fact is we have conservatives on the air electioneering."
