President Barack Obama pounds away on gun safety but all the beltway wants to talk about is skeet shooting.

Tonight on “The Ed Show” at 8p/11pET on msnbc, Ed takes the news media to task for missing the big picture, with Katrina Vanden Heuvel of The Nation, and Richard Wolffe, Exec. Editor, msnbc.com and msnbc Political Analyst.

Plus, Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak (D-MN) on how he is lowering gun violence in his city and why he thinks Senate leader Harry Reid needs to get to work on guns.

It’s the Super Bowl commercial everybody is talking about: ‘So God Made a Farmer’:



Ed will tell us how Republicans are destroying the family farm.

Then, why are conservatives actually trying to blame the Super Bowl blackout on the president. Ed will ask the BIG Panel of Karen Finney, msnbc Political Analyst, Jonathan Alter, Bloomberg, and E.J. Dionne, Washington Post.

Republican resistance to Obamacare is beginning to weaken as a big name governor says he’ll push for Medicaid expansion.

And in the BIG Finish, the Boy Scouts are getting ready to end their policy of discriminating against gays and the president is backing them up. Ed will tell us how conservatives are fighting this progress with Michael Rogers, Managing Director of Raw Story.

It’s going to be another essential @edshow tonight at 8p/11pET on @msnbctv.
