Yes, I sat last Thursday and watched the '24/7 coverage hungry' MSNBC Host, Ed Schultz, as he sat through a Rick Santorum Town-Hall meeting and a posting meeting interview.
The need to break-away from MSNBC's solely Left leaning political coverage is real, but I wonder about the relevance of Schultz's segment. Do Progressives need re-enforcement regarding our political preference? Are conservatives going to spend even one minute watching the Ed Show. If there are conservative watching his show, they are the ones who consistently vote 5% on his daily cell surveys, or they are watching as a monitoring entity. The state of mind of any conservative Ed Schultz interviewed (in the segments below) has about as much relevance to me as listening to Dick Cheney speak about national defense or integrity in US Politics. These are the very same people who elected G. W. Bush and Dick Cheney. But, I suppose even MSNBC has to capitalize on the 'hot items' in the-political realm, so "I get it".
