MSNBC's Ed Schultz joins ranks of politcal screamers

Ed Schultz shouts his way through his show on MSNBC.This reporter was thinking just a little while back, that what this country needs is another intolerant political loud mouth on the airwaves. It doesn't matter what political party they call home -- R or D, liberal conservative. No TV viewer seems able to go more than a few minutes without having some self-important gas bag named Matthews or O'Reilly, sporting one ideology or another, raging at a camera.

Fortunately, MSNBC brings us another fix -- the emerging show from Air America personality Ed Schultz. Resembling a sort of square-headed Rush Limbaugh, Schultz's politics run more toward Keith Olbermann. But, let's face it: None of these guys are on TV to discuss sensible politics on either side of the aisle. They're on the air to pontificate, yell, scream and (in Schultz's case) have a borderline Network-ish nervous breakdown on camera every night.

Stewart, Colbert return from Vacationland with a cornucopia of cable news cameos - VIDEOS

If you're anything like me (first of all, you have my deepest sympathy), you haven't been able to sit still since The Daily Show and The Colbert Report went off the air for the holidays. It also may be because my body has absorbed more sugary fat from the holidays than one of Tyler Durden's homemade soaps.

Both shows returned to the airwaves Monday with new episodes. Both also had cable news celebrity cameos so big, no lightning fast news ticker announcing an accidental nuclear missile launch could draw your attention away from them.

The Daily Show
returned with another appearance by CNN's gray-haired uber-anchor Anderson Cooper and an interesting interview with new Meet the Press moderator David Gregory. The Colbert Report picked up former Hannity and Colmes pushover Alan Colmes and wound things up with an interview with CNN reporter John King.

Sean Hannity replacing Alan Colmes with Sean Hannity

Once again I'm forced to ask the question, what the hell is going on here? Have we entered the bizarro world? Is up now down? Has black become white? Did police arrest PGA golfer John Daly for shooting himself in the leg with an unlicensed handgun in a crowded hip-hop club, and the NRA award Plaxico Burres their Humanitarian of the Year award?

Fox News has announced their replacement for the outgoing Alan Colmes, the liberal ying to Sean Hannity's conservative yang on their self-titled debate show: it's Sean Hannity.

He's doing the show all by himself, so finally he has someone worthy of debating him. Stephen Colbert's "Formidable Opponent" will never be funny again.

Hannity gets new gig on Fox News

by Adam Finley, posted Jan 5th 2007 7:02PM

sean hannityAs president of the Sean Hannity Fan Club, I am thrilled to announce that Sean Hannity's new hour-long, live program for Fox News will be debuting this Sunday. Hannity's America will include an in-depth feature story, debates with liberals, and interviews. I will be selling busts of Hannity made out of nuts and chocolate in celebration of this new show, and will also be constructing a giant replica of the conservative pundit out of old mufflers. Actually, they'll be mufflers I steal from cars in the parking lot, resulting in a cacophony of unmufflered engines serving as a noisy salute to Hannity.

Sean Hannity upset over documentary

by Adam Finley, posted Mar 3rd 2006 2:06PM

sean hannityFox News' Sean Hannity isn't happy. It seems that the documentary This Divided State has raised the choler of the famous conservative and co-host of Hannity and Colmes. After you watch this footage from the film, you might begin to understand why. Hannity was brought to the ultra-conservative campus of Utah Valley State College before a controversial appearance by Michael Moore. Hannity says he plans to sue the filmmakers based on how the aforementioned footage was used. Of course, whether the footage was edited to make Hannity seem like a smug, self-righteous jerk or whether he actually is a smug, self-righteous jerk is for you to decide on your own.
