Ed Schultz drank Guinness Beer on air to honor them for pulling out of the St. Patrick's Day Parade in New York City in support of gay activists. Guinness pulled out because the parade organizers would not allow LGBT groups to march while carrying banners with their sexual or political affiliation.
While talking to a guest about the decision of Guinness to no longer sponsor the famed parade, Schultz explained:
This is a, uh, Guinness beer, they were going to be a big sponsor of this.
Then, clicking the glass, Schultz continued to say while pouring:
In fact, it's after 5 o'clock. I think I'll have a couple of cool ones.
Schultz showed two bottles of beer to the camera and told his guest, who was in Washington D.C., that he had an extra beer for him to chug if he had been in the same studio.. He then asked rhetorically what it meant for Guinness and other beer companies for Guinness to pull out of the parade, and answered himself:
They want everyone to drink their beer I would imagine, including Big Eddie!
Schultz then took a sip as his guest opined that Guinness would see a surge in their sales based on word of mouth. http://www.truthrevolt.org/news/schultz-drinks-guinness-air-honor-them-supporting-gay-activists
