I like Ed Schultz. I listen to him on Air America in the morning. I tape his TV show on MSNBC and watch it later.
The thing I like about Ed is that he tells it as he sees it. He isn’t afraid to express his view. He freely admits he is expressing his own opinions and is obvious when the “Op Ed” section opens his TV show. On his radio show, he listens to people with opposing views. He lets them express their opinion, never hesitating to correct a known fact that is being distorted by the caller. He argues and he agrees. He is a fan of President Obama, but doesn’t hesitate to offer another view. He is one of the few open-minded journalists asking open-ended questions and listening to the answers without interrupting, as does Chris Matthews. His “Psycho Talk” feature is spot on. He is open, tough, and a big teddy bear.
Ed Schultz is the spokesman for the middle class.
