‘ED Show’ playbook: Wednesday, March 6

Updated

A shocking new report (click here to read it) shows the number of conspiracy-minded anti-government “Patriot” groups has reached an all-time high.

How dangerous are these groups?

Tonight on “The Ed Show” at 8pET on msnbc, Ed Schultz welcomes Daryl Johnson, former Senior Analyst for Domestic Terrorism at the Department of Homeland Security and author (“Right Wing Resurgence”), Richard Cohen, President of the Southern Poverty Law Center, and Dr. James Peterson, Director of Africana Studies and Associate Professor of English at Lehigh University.

Then, another new report says Iraq was a waste of money, but former Vice President Dick Cheney says he’d do it all over again. Ed ask Bart Gellman, TIME magazine contributing editor-at-large and author (“Angler: The Cheney Vice Presidency”) about a new, explosive documentary.

When it comes to voter fraud, the GOP doesn’t have to look far to find it. Ed will have the details on that.

President Obama dines with Republicans and Karl Rove is back to predicting things. The BIG Congressional Panel weighs in on the president’s GOP’s outreach and more. We’ll hear from Rep. Gwen Moore of Wisconsin, Rep. Terri Sewell of Alabama and Rep. Jim McDermott of Washington.

The Dow Jones closed at another high. And the CEO of Costco is coming out for raising the minimum wage. Ed will have all the day’s good news and bad news.

And in the BIG Finish, the mayor of cable news melts down right on the air. Tonya Reiman, Bill O’Reilly’s very own body language expert joins us tonight!
