Ed Schultz Attacks Fox News For Waging Culture War Over Halloween

Ed Schultz tore into Fox News' "Fox and Friends" for waging what he described as "a cultural war" over a report on classroom Halloween celebrations.

During his Monday night show, Schultz played a clip from the morning news program that featured "Fox and Friends" host Brian Kilmeade discussing what he called an "assault on Halloween." According to Kilmeade, "schools across the country" were to canceling Halloween celebrations in school "because it may offend immigrants."

"Yes, Halloween is the perfect holiday for the folks at 'Fox and Friends' to fear-monger over immigration," Schultz said.

He then reported on the same story and said that "a few schools" decided to forgo Halloween celebrations "for a wide range of reasons, cultural sensitivity being one of them."

He also highlighted an article from a Michigan newspaper that reportedly mentioned the disappointment found among parents because Halloween celebrations were canceled.

"Ed Show" producers cut back to host Gretchen Carlson sharing her point of view on the topic. She said that she "was just sad" at the thought of her two children not seeing "the American traditions" of celebrating Halloween.
