Net worth, sources[edit]

Celebritynetworth.com is not a reliable source (see this discussion). Schultz's net worth doesn't belong in the lead per WP:UNDUE. If we find a reliable source for his wealth, it can be included in the body of the article. Diffen.com is also not a reliable source as anyone can edit it.

Celebritynetworth.com said he's worth $11.5 million. Is there another more reliable source?
Whoever you are... Are all celebrities' alleged net worths covered in their respective articles? Or is this one guy being singled out for some reason? Like maybe, to "prove" something? ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 20:51, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

Lawsuits and Conflict of Interest deleted before the article was locked[edit]

Prior revision:

On March 9th, 2012, Politico reported that Schultz had received nearly $200,000 in speaking fees and advertisement charges from labor unions without publicly disclosing this income, a potential conflict of interest for his television show, which is currently billed as a news program. [19]

According to the Huffington Post and Politico, MSNBC's Ed Schultz is being sued by an NBC News employee who claims he helped Schultz break into TV—and was then stiffed out of his rightful share of earnings. [20] [21]

Blogs are not valid sources here, and Huffington is typically considered unreliable also. If there's anything to this story, it should be possible to find legitimate coverage. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 20:49, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

Is the New York post unreliable on this issue? http://www.nypost.com/p/pagesix/ed_show_battle_hTKBuTUNnBhJ5CP43fmuaN — Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.14.222.208 (talk) 21:13, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

Per WP:3RRNO, "Removal of libelous, biased, unsourced, or poorly sourced contentious material that violates the policy on biographies of living persons (BLP)" is not edit warring. changing IP addresses to add 'unsourced, or poorly sourced contentious material' will not prevent such information from being removed from the article. To the editor who persists in doing so - take the time to find reliable sources that support your edits. It is inevitable, otherwise, that this page will be protected against IP editing for longer and longer periods. JoeSperrazza (talk) 02:19, 28 April 2012 (UTC)

Net worth and Edit warring, again[edit]

Lawsuit material[edit]

I have deleted the following from the article because I believe it was not reliably sourced:

In April 2011, NBC News producer and sound engineer Michael Queen sued Schultz, claiming he failed to compensate him for getting him on MSNBC. [1] But Washington federal district court Judge Beryl Howell issued summary judgment on April 30, 2012 for Schultz, who argued he never signed a contract with Queen[2]

But on April 4, 2014 the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit reversed Howell.[3] In a freelance article for the Daily Caller Evan Gahr discovered in the court files that Schultz had encouraged Queen to get him a job on Fox News.[4] Gahr also reported that Schultz's ex-wife had obtained a domestic violence restraining order against him during their divorce.[5] Schultz claimed the order was issued without any allegations of domestic violence[6] At a federal court hearing reported exclusively by Betsy Rothstein for the Daily Caller Judge Beryl Howell scheduled the lawsuit for trial on May 11, 2015.[7]

The first reference may be OK. Its tone is neutral and journalistic, and Politico is generally accepted as a Reliable Source. The second and third sources are a legal filings which are generally not accepted as references. All the others are cited as if they came from the Daily Caller, but in fact they are from The Mirror, a British tabloid and not a Reliable Source. Also, the tone of those articles makes it clear that they are opinion pieces rather than journalism.

I am happy to discuss here exactly what can and should go into the article on this topic. However, there may not be any Reliable Sourcing available. I did a Google News search and found nothing. It appears that Reliable Sources have not picked up on this story. --MelanieN (talk) 22:02, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
