    He was once rumored to be a potential candidate for Senate in South Dakota.  

    I wonder if losing his show is perhaps him setting the groundwork for that if Tim Johnson retires.

      Nevermind that was North Dakota.

      Like North and South Carolina, only colder in the winter.

      Ed Schultz is from North Dakota.  I believe the next Senatorial race to be in 2016 in ND.  I doubt that Ed would voluntarily leave his TV show unless his wife's condition requires him to spend more time at home and they would prefer to be back in N.D. where he could continue his radio program.  I would hate to see him leave and I'm not a big fan of Ezra.  I'm sure that it is hard for Ed to hold back the criticism of the Corporation whom he works for.  The very media company that skews the news and takes advertising money in large chunks to promote the oil/coal/gas corps that in many ways, in my opinion, are responsible for many of the National problem.  Ed is a blue collar guy in a white collar job.

      •  my thoughts exactly. Ezra is crazy smart (0+ / 0-)

        but (I HATE TO SAY THIS) not very interesting to listen to or watch. Now if they moved say Up with Chris Hayes or Melissa Harris Perry I might re-think that.  Unfortunately, both of those shows are really cerebral so saturday's are a perfect fit. We need a firebreather like Ed on the liberal side.  It takes all kinds to reach all people and Ed has his place.  I hope we don't lose him on tv.
