It's a shame to see a host so horribly unprepared for a guest....but gosh is it hilarious!
There's no excuse for such a poor job of mediating an interview even when the subject is so emotional. It wasn't even a difficult interview. He made it difficult by not listening to his guest and trying to force a thesis into the guest's mouth that he would not swallow. Poor Ed just keep playing his own gravedigger.... and down and down and down he slipped until the earth just kind of fell back over him.
This is so typical. I've had the misfortune to engage in many irrational discussions with people who identify themselves as liberals. I've never watched Ed Schultz on TV, and this clip has spared me from wasting my time watching him in the future. To think that he would be so ignorant tells me he doesn't get out much and doesn't read much.
