Fresh reporting on the “fiscal cliff” negotiations is alarming defenders of Social Security everywhere!

Tonight on “The Ed Show,” Ed Schultz welcomes Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) to respond.

Then, Newt Gingrich of all people warns Republicans to quit hostage taking, but another big time senator refuses the advice.

Tonight, Ed goes in-depth on the Republican deception about the debt. First, he’ll check with Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) about how Democrats are fighting back.

Then, Eugene Robinson, msnbc Analyst and Associate Editor and Pulitzer Prize winning columnist for the Washington Post, and Howard Fineman, NBC News Political Analyst and Editorial Director of the Huffington Post Media Group, will discuss which party has the upper hand in negotiations.

67 House Republicans vote against disaster relief for New York and New Jersey residents. We’ll detail the shame of Paul Ryan and his heartless “Sandy 67” gang with Lizz Winstead, comedian and co-creator of “The Daily Show.”


Former Rep. Barney Frank says he wants to be the next U.S. senator from Massachusetts. Ed will tell us why this is an outstanding idea.

And in the BIG Finish, Bill O’Reilly does his best Archie Bunker, claiming “Asian people are not liberal by nature. They’re usually more industrious and hardworking.”

Tonight, legendary actor and author George Takei responds to the Fox News host.
