I watched the first show tonight after i got home from work. I have to say that Ed still has a lot of polishing to do. He seemed a tad nervious and unsure with the cameras. I’m sure that he will quickly wrap that up and have a fairly decent show.
The only other issue I have with Ed is that he appears to be a lot more partisan than I am used to seeing on MSNBC. Sure Olbermann and Maddow are fairly liberal hosts with their shows on MSNBC but they do a fairly decent job of keeping it reigned in. Ed lets it all hang out, which may be exactly the type of show he is wanting to put out. I’m not sure I will be an avid follower of the show becuase of it. That and he hits the air waves at 5:00pm here in Iowa, which means that he is on generally during the time right after I get home from work and rarely have the TV on.
Rachel Maddow showed several segments of an interview with Collin Powell last night. I thought it was very interesting.
Here she asks him what he thinks of the GOP Budget alternative that was put out yesterday. A transcript of the interview and other clips can be found here. I am currently reading through the GOP budget proposal and hope to have my take on it out this weekend.
In this next clip he talks about Gitmo and the Bush Administration’s use of torture.
