Morning EDition: May 23, 2011

05/23/11 11:02AM

We're trying something new starting today. Every morning I kick off our editorial day with a note listing some of the stories that have caught my eye.

SNL fans outside our studio building

05/19/11 09:24PM

We see a lot of interesting things here at 30 rock. About this time of the week, when The Ed Show staff leaves the building, often we see people lined up to try and get tickets to SNL. Depending on the act that will be appearing, the crowd of people who camp out is often large. This week is different though.

The mountains of recent change in the Middle East, from chaos in Egypt to the death of Osama bin Laden, warrants this as a time to reassess.  In a speech this morning, President Obama breaks down his Mideast policy.  Watch:As can be expected, the right wing is none too pleased with the president’s powerful message. Rep. Bachmann, who is threatening a 2012 presidential run, calls President Obama's speech a betrayal to Israel  and Mitt Romney echoes that sentiment saying it's throwing Israel "under the bus".  Former Gov. read more
