Schultz Charges Pentagon With Censorship

P-1 (and Jones Radio Network-syndicated) talker Ed Schultz is crying "foul" over what he says is censorship of his radio show by the Pentagon.

Schultz says he had written confirmation that his daily show was supposed to debut on American Forces Radio this past Monday. However, the talk host says the deal was nixed at the last minute by Deputy Asst. Secretary of Defense, Allison Barber, and Schultz thinks it's political retribution for comments he made against Barber on the show last week.

Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman has denied that Schultz's comments had any bearing on whether or not AFN would air the program, saying that the confusion was due to an AFN staff member jumping the gun on any final decision to air the show on the government-owned network that reaches American military personnel and their families worldwide.
