‘ED Show’ playbook: Friday, June 8


Ed is off tonight, but Michael Eric Dyson, Professor of Sociology at Georgetown University and author (“Can You Hear Me Now?”) is filling in with a packed show.

President Obama is out defending his jobs record and Republicans are all too happy to tear it down.  Robert Reich, Former U.S. Labor Secretary and UC Berkeley Professor, will set the record straight.

Republicans are trying to blame Obama for leaking classified documents for political gain.  But the White House is firing back.  msnbc Political Analyst  Richard Wolffe gives this the context it deserves.

Republican Florida Gov. Rick Scott is still thumbing his nose at the Justice Department on his voter purge

Ari Berman, contributing writer for The Nation and Rolling Stone magazines, will weigh in.


Gay marriage is gaining support in the black community and President Obama has everything to do with it. Michael will talk with Dr. James Peterson, Director of Africana Studies and Associate Professor of English at Lehigh University, and Joe Watkins, msnbc Political Analyst and Republican Political Strategist, about the new bend toward justice.

And Chris Rock lets loose on Mitt Romney’s religion on late night.  Funny stuff?  We’ll check with political comedian John Fugelsang
