Ed Schultz is Huge Fan of Polls - Except When it Comes to Keystone Pip
May 8th, 2014 6:07 AM
Whenever I watch the live-action cartoon on MSNBC known as "The Ed Show," I particularly enjoy its most comical element, Schultz's nightly polling of his almost entirely like minded viewers to determine whether they agree with him.

March 10th, 2014 4:57 PM

February 3rd, 2014 12:47 PM
It cannot be said of many people that they make MSNBC in-house loose cannon Ed Schultz look sane by comparison. Mike Malloy is one of those people.
On his radio show Friday, Malloy condemned the project with the type of infantile rhetoric one would expect from a frat boy in a late-night bull session trying to impress a winsome young lady who yearns to crusade for the Sierra Club. (Audio…
