‘Ed Show’ tonight: Fri., Jan. 6, 2012


The unemployment rate continues to drop, but Republicans are having none of it – still trying to paint President Obama as a job killer.  Ed won’t let them get away with it.

Robert Reich, Former U.S. Labor Secretary, UC Berkeley will join Ed for a reality check on Republican rhetoric and today’s jobs report.

Newt Gingrich wants to go to the NAACP Convention so he can tell the African-American community to demand paychecks and not be satisifed with food stamps.  Ben Jealous, President and CEO of the NAACP, will tell Ed whether Newt will get an invite.

Rick Santorum is bringing Jesus into his campaign pitch.  John McCain has some kind words for President Obama…er, President Romney.  And new polls out of New Hampshire and South Carolina.

Chris Moody, Yahoo! News Political Reporter, will have the latest from New Hampshire, where two debates this weekend will precede Tuesday’s first in the nation primary. 

Then, Ed will host an extended discussion on the GOP campaign with Ari Melber, Correspondent for The Nation, and Joy-Ann Reid, Managing Editor of TheGrio.com, msnbc Contributor.

Our 2011 “Psycho Talker of the Year,” Rush Limbaugh, makes his first 2012 appearance in our “Psycho Talk” segment.

And with the North Dakota State Bison in the championship, Ed takes a trip down memory lane with some of his play by play from his video vault.  You won’t want to miss that!

It’s going to be another packed @EdShow at 8pET on @msnbctv.
