We really feel for you, buddy.
Ed Schultz started with a radio show back in 2004. Then he was given an MSNBC show on weeknights but kept his radio show. Then he moved to a weekends-only MSNBC show but kept his radio show. Then he came back to a nightly MSNBC show but kept his radio show. And how he's giving up his radio show, but keeping his MSNBC show. I guess he got over his "I need two shows" complaint.
BTW, while I like Ed, I wish the people who want him to read their tweets on the air weren't such butt-kissing brown-nosers. Asking Ed "are you going to go fishing this weekend?" or "what's your favorite food to grill?" will get your question answered on the air, which I guess is all you want, but your pathetic need to be a shameless bootlicker makes me, a fellow human being, deeply ashamed of you. "Big Eddie" might be a good progressive, but he's also a guy who in the past has bitched about not being able to get a business class ticket to North Dakota for less than $3900 (that's not a typo) and how he really wants to fish the Kamchatka Peninsula someday (and certainly will.) Yeah, he's all Middle Class and Just One of Us. Sure he is.
But whatever you think of Ed, please, save a little of your dignity and stop asking him stupid questions that have nothing to do with anything except feeding his infinite desire to talk about himself. Or just ask him if he's hiring toadies. You choads are more than qualified.
