Ed Schultz’s heartwarming apology

Last night I was very surprised to hear Ed Schultz’s address to his TV audience about how he had misspoke on his Radio Show.  Not being an avid listener to his radio show, I had no idea what he was talking about but to listen to the words he spoke and the body language and expression on his face told me that he was very sincere in his apology and that made all of the difference in the world.
There was not much explaining of the situation in his apology but it was a whole lot of truthful pleading to Ann Coulter for forgiveness.  He mentioned that he called her a name and expressed feelings about her that was totally inappropriate.  He placed himself on hiatus without pay attempting to atone for his transgression.  He had mentioned that he had made attempts to contact Ms. Coulter personally but so far, to no avail.  Ed Schultz is seen as a big man but mostly due to his statue, he will now be forever known to me and others like be as a big man for the way he took responsibility for his ac…
