This week’s Mainstream Media Scream features MSNBC host Ed Schultz suggesting that God supports Obamacare.

Answering questions from viewers on "The Ed Show" last Wednesday, Schultz pulled one from Twitter.

“Would you interview Michele Bachmann and find out what God says we should do about the Affordable Care Act?”

Schultz: “I’ll tell you what I think God thinks of the Affordable Care Act — it’s a big ‘Amen.’ ”

Media Research Center Vice President for Research and Publications Brent Baker explains our pick: “We knew Schultz had a God complex. Now he’s speaking for God? It makes sense, if you equate Obama with God, which is common for MSNBC’s staff.”

Rating: Four out of five screams.
