Today, on the Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), we welcome back two great guests. Andrew Malcolm, the journalist blogger at the LA Times’ Top of the Ticket, makes the first of a regular series of appearances on TEMS. We’ll talk about his take on Obama’s two press conferences — Tuesday’s traditional presser and his “virtual town hall” today. In the second half, JD Johannes tells us about the launch of his new Outside the Wire installment, Baghdad Happens. We’ll take a look at the trailer and find out more about the troops on the ground in Iraq, and JD’s efforts to bring us the story. You can support JD by purchasing the DVD:
