Two underage males are convicted of raping a teenage girl and photographing her in the nude and yet some in the mainstream media are shedding tears for the boys and their lost youth.

Tonight on “The Ed Show” at 8p & 11pET on msnbc, guest host Michael Eric Dyson (filling in for Ed, who is preparing for the start of his new weekend show next month) welcomes Zerlina Maxwell, Political Analyst & Grio.com contributor, Irin Carmon, Staff Writer for Salon.com, and Salamishah Tillet, Assistant Professor of English and Africana Studies University of Pennsylvania & Co-Founder, A Long Walk Home, Inc.

Then, a Republican Senator comes out for gay marriage two years after his son tells him he’s gay. Too little too late? Michael will ask Wilson Cruz,  actor and national spokesperson for GLAAD.

The vice presidential nominee who lost the 2008 election (Sarah Palin) and the man who helped lose the 2012 election (Karl Rove) are at each other’s throats.

Palin, slavery and Ted Cruz all played a role at CPAC this weekend. Our big panel, E.J. Dionne, a Senior Fellow at The Brookings Institution and Washington Post columnist, Janaye Ingram, DC Bureau Chief of the National Action Network, and Benjy Sarlin, Political Reporter for Talking Points Memo,  weighs in on the Republican Party’s identity crisis.

The Obama Derangement Syndrome (ODS) rears its ugly head on the History channel.

AND in the BIG Finish, the architects of the Iraq War are still wrong a decade later! Eugene Robinson, Associate Editor and Pulitzer Prize winning Columnist for the Washington Post and an msnbc Political Analyst, will respond to new comments by Paul Wolfowitz.

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