    NEW YORK (AP) — Veteran radio host Ed Schultz will have his own hourlong program on MSNBC, starting Monday.

    Schultz has spent 30 years in talk radio and has a syndicated show that airs from noon to 3 p.m. each day.

    MSNBC announced Wednesday that he'll replace a politically oriented show currently anchored by David Shuster at 6 p.m. on weekdays.

    He's another liberal voice for an MSNBC evening audience that's already used to a leftward tilt with Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow. MSNBC calls him an "avid voice for the middle class."

    Also, did any of you see Rachel Maddow's interview with Colon Powell? He may have endorsed Obama, but he is still covering his own ass on the Iraq/WMD/torture thing.

    The parameters of the "debate" regarding whether sleep deprivation, stress positions and waterboarding are torture are absurd to begin with. They clearly are, but such a "dialogue" begs the question in assuming that torture is morally wrong to begin with.

    You didn't see the comment he made about Powell, nor the interview he linked to?

    We executed Japanese officers in WW2 for waterboarding our boys.

    No wonder the rest of the world hates America. We are hypocrites and bullies.

    But my theory is that the rest of the world doesn't hate liberal America. Look at how they love the Obama's but hated Bush.

    They only hate the Republicans/neo cons/right wingers. And I tend to agree with the rest of the world that they suck ass.

    Anyways, hope you enjoy Ed. He isn't my favorite but he's 100 times better than anyone on Fox.

    Too bad MSNBC didn't give us these liberals back when Bush and the GOP ran the government. A liberal media might have prevented Bush from lying us into Iraq and everything else he did that was fucked up/illegal.

    Instead, the corporate media helped Bush sell us all his lies. Way to go Fox, CNN, etc.

    Even MSNBC didn't do their job. Sure, give us some liberal shows now that we are in power. A little late, don't you think? Back then all we had was Olbermann.

    So it was Keith vs. CNN, Fox, ABC, CBS, NBC, etc. Hardly fair.

    That's why you remain under informed and wrong on every issue.

    So? That fails to differentiate the difference between "is" and "ought," between a descriptive observation and a prescriptive recommendation. That alone has no bearing on the moral status of torture.
