This week's Mainstream Media Scream features MSNBC's Ed Schultz, host of "The Ed Show," expressing shock that Democrats aren't embracing Obamacare in their campaigns.

On last week’s show, he said:

“I was visiting with some lawmakers last night in Washington and, obviously, we talked a lot about health care when I was visiting with them, and I asked them, ?Are you -- do you have a problem running on it?' There does seem to be, for some reason, a reluctance by Democrats to run home and talk about how positive this health care law is. And I find that very interesting.”

Media Research Center Vice President of Research Brent Baker explains our pick: “Schultz has lost all touch with reality if he is really baffled about why Democrats are distancing themselves from Obamacare. He’s redefined ‘in the tank for Obama.’ If this is the kind of advice Democrats heed from MSNBC, things are looking a lot brighter for Republicans this fall.”

Rating: Three out of five screams.
