Armed Forces Radio has decided to include the Ed Schultz Show in overseas programming, RAW STORY has learned.
The show recently got into a fracas with the Defense Department after the liberal radio host called out Allison Barber, a deputy assistant secretary of defense, for staging a teleconference event between President Bush and U.S. soldiers in Iraq.
The Department had intended to begin carrying Schultz's show earlier, but that deal was put on hold after Schultz's remarks. Several Democratic senators then wrote to officials in the Defense Department.
The letter confirming Schultz's arrival on overseas military frequencies follows below. Schultz will share the airwaves with conservative radio maven Rush Limbaugh.
Armed Forces Radio provides U.S. radio and television programming, "a touch of home," to U.S. service men and women and their families serving abroad.
