‘Ed Show’ tonight: Thu., Mar. 1, 2012


After calling her a “slut” and a “prostitute,” conservative radio bully Rush Limbaugh hurls new ugly sexist attacks at Sandra Fluke, the 30-year-old college student who advocates insurance coverage of contraception for women.

Fluke joins Ed tonight to respond, for the first time on TV, to Limbaugh’s disturbing comments.

Plus, Dr. Caroline Heldman, Professor of Politics at Occidental University, and Terry O’Neill, President of The National Organization for Women, have reaction and full analysis.

The war on women takes center stage in the U.S. Senate as 48 senators vote to roll back women’s rights.  Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) will weigh in on that.

A federal judge in Montana is under fire for sending a despicable, racist anti-Obama e-mail.  Michael Eric Dyson, Professor of Sociology at Georgetown university and author (“Can You Hear Me Now?”), will talk about racism in the Republican Party.

The Rick Santorum camp blames “political thuggery” for a move to award Michigan’s at-large delegates to Mitt Romney.  Rep. Betty Sutton (D-OH) and Sam Stein, Huffington Post political editor, will help Ed sort out that mess.

And in our Big Finish, the Obama campaign challenges the Koch brothers to reveal who’s donating to their so-called grassroots organization, Americans For Prosperity.  Robert Greenwald, documentary filmmaker and the director of the Brave New Foundation, has that (UPDATE: the segment with Mr. Greenwald has been postponed, please check back to The Ed Show blog in the next day or so and we’ll let you know when it will air).

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