General Wesley Clark orders: Put Ed Schultz on AFRN!

We have been informed that the former General and political candidate who's also involved in some way with a disaster management firm offers his strong support to fellow crypto-VRWC member Ed Schultz at this page:

Last year, Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA) introduced a resolution that was unanimously passed by the Senate, urging Secretary Rumsfeld and Armed Forces Radio to ensure more political balance in programming... We must let our voices be heard and exercise leadership to help ensure that the spirit of Senator Harkin's resolution -- and the spirit of fairness -- are at play on taxpayer financed programming.

At the link, you can send an email to your representatives. I have trouble believing that they would screen each email sent, and I urge you not to abuse this feature by sending an email telling them to keep Big Ed off AFRN.

The email form letter does have a bit more detail on this whole sad affair:

Then, at the end of September, Manny Levy, Chief of the Radio Division of the American Forces Network Broadcast Center, advised the distributor of Ed Schultz's nationally syndicated radio program, Jones Radio, that: "AFN Radio has squared away everything on our end to begin carrying the first hour of 'The Ed Schultz Show' each day, beginning Monday, October 17, 2005."

I'm guessing he's the "staff member who got ahead of the decision-making process" mentioned here.
