Earlier, Ingraham offered this response to Schultz on her Facebook page:

Re. the crude comments made about me by Ed Schultz on his radio program: First, I was surprised to learn that Ed Schultz actually hosted a radio show. Is it only available online? Second, I have to get back to recording the audio edition of my new book "Of Thee I Zing." Now I'm tempted to insert one additional zing--about men who preach civility but practice misogyny.

On Wednesday evening, MSNBC weighed in with this statement:

MSNBC management met with Ed Schultz this afternoon and accepted his offer to take one week of unpaid leave for the remarks he made yesterday on his radio program. Ed will address these remarks on his show tonight, and immediately following begin his leave. Remarks of this nature are unacceptable and will not be tolerated.

Late Update: Ingraham responded to news of the suspension via Twitter.

"MSNBC suspends Schultz," she wrote. "Oh great, now his ratings will go up."
