Feb 8, 2015 - For the past several days, Ed Schultz has
been tweeting photos and updates from the Gulf Coast. On his TV show all
this coming week, he will be airing a story on the upcoming 5-year
anniversary of the Deepwater Horizon spill and its effects, which are
STILL present all these years later.
Tune in to see the story next week - every day, Monday
through Friday - at 4:00pm on MSNBC. Record it if you can’t watch it
live at that time.
