Recommended MSNBC lineup for reduced stress over the next 13 days

Martin Bashir, Al Sharpton, and Lawrence O'Donnell. They are the only ones hitting Romney hard, reporting facts, and not preemptively turning on democrats and Obama. Rachel is very informative, especially regarding voter suppression. She has also done some of the best reporting on why Romney is not qualified to be president, but by the time her show is finished, I tend to feel demoralized.

1. Good choices. Rachel's depression seems to get in the way sometimes (nt)

2. Agreed - but sometimes

I will watch Tweety with the sound off after Martin Bashir and turn it off if he is acting crazy.

4. I endorse your excellent choices. Both Martin & Rev Al are must see tv in my home. I catch L.O.,

occasionally, because by 10 pm, there's some really good stuff on. I haven't watched Tweety & Ed since the first debate.

5. The Ed Show has been great TV

With Mathews being so unpredictable we needed a tough voice that was ready and willing to call the Right Wingers and Fox on their BS.

I also strongly believe Ed's an important voice on the network because he connects with centrists and some older folks like my parents who Rachel doesn't.

Whatever gets the message out with intelligence is okay by me and I think Ed Schultz was a great hire for these reasons. His work on the Sensata story really humanized it and reminded people of what outsourcing does and how a potential commander in chief shouldn't stand to gain from such practices.

6. I often miss Bashir & Rev Al

because they are on so early on the left coast.

7. I wish that you could download Martin Bashir's and

Lawrence O'Donnell The Last Word that I could still watch it them I miss them. MSNBC makes the Rachel Maddow show available as podcasts.

8. I never feel demoralized after watching Rachel.

In fact, I learn a lot from both Rachel and Lawrence.

I enjoy Bashir, Big Ed, and Al, but they do not have analytical skills, or the intelligence of Maddow or O'Donnell.
