It turns out the only thing KO’d after Ed Schultz hurled fighting words at Laura Ingraham last week was his own show.

MSNBC has decided to take radio and TV host Schultz off the air until June 6, following his comments last week in which he referred to the conservative host as a “right-wing slut,” according to reports. Schultz’s remark, made during his nationally syndicated radio show on Tuesday, reportedly stems from Ingraham’s criticism of President Barack Obama’s trip to Ireland while the Midwest was being devastated by tornadoes.

Schultz apologized on The Ed Show, his hour-long weeknight program on MSNBC, yesterday for the comment, saying that he had used “vile and inappropriate language,” the Washington Post reports.
