Keith hasn't been able to get Sharron Angle to go on his show for an interview, so they just did a mash-up from her previous interviews with him asking the questions they think she would have liked him to ask.
Alex Gibney talked from New York City about the recently released documentary film he wrote and directed, Casino Jack and the United States of Money. It tells the story of Jack Abramoff, who since November 2006, had been in prison after pleading guilty to three felonies with regard to his lobbying efforts for several Indian tribes. He also pleaded guilty to conspiring to bribe a member of Congress. Mr. Abramoff was released from prison to a half-way house June 8, 2010. Alex Gibney runs Jigsaw Productions. A previous documentary, Taxi to the Dark Side, won the Academy Award for Documentary Feature in 2008. In 2006, he was nominated for an Oscar for Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room. Mr. Gibney writes regularly for the Huffington Post and has also written for New Republic, Newsday, and The Los Angeles Times. His films include Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson starring Johnny Depp (2008). His current project is a documentary about former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer. Video clips were shown, including some that contain language that some may find offensive.

January 13, 2010 MSNBC The ED Show
SCHULTZ: And welcome back to THE ED SHOW.
There was other news tonight. It‘s about health care.
The negotiations are in trouble. It‘s not good.
Today, the president took the lead. He‘s finally showing his cards. He spent four hours in negotiations with Democratic leaders, from both sides of the Congress as well.
This administration has asked House progressives to accept a lot of compromises. The public option out, the excise tax still being negotiated, all, of course, to keep the Senate happy.
Now the tables are turned. The president wants a national health insurance exchange not run by the states, which, of course, could open the door down the road to that of a public option. That is the House idea, but the Senate doesn‘t like it. They want every state to run their own exchange.
Joining me now is Congressman Dennis Kucinich of Ohio, and former presidential candidate.
Dennis, good to have you on tonight.

It was the first public comment by the Iranian leader on the two-page document since its existence was revealed by The Times of London last week.
According to the newspaper, the document shows Iran has been secretly working on testing a neutron initiator -- the part of a nuclear bomb that triggers an explosion. The technology has no use aside from detonating a nuclear weapon.
Critics of the Iranian regime have seized on the revelation as a smoking gun -- one of the strongest indicators yet of a continuing nuclear weapons program in Iran.
But when asked point-blank whether Iran had been testing a neutron initiator, the Iranian president was dismissive.
"I think that some of the claims about our nuclear issue have turned into a repetitive and tasteless joke," Ahmadinejad said in the interview.
Asked about Ahmadinejad's allegation that the U.S. government fabricated documents, White House Senior Adviser David Axelrod said: "Of course that's nonsense." Read more at ABC News
