    MSNBC engages in self-parody, hires Al Sharpton for 6 p.m. slot

    MSNBC engages in self-parody, hires Al Sharpton for 6 p.m. slot

    Unbelievable.  By any standard.

    MSNBC to hire Al Sharpton for 6 p.m. slot, according to The NY Times:

    Mr. Sharpton’s imminent hiring, which was acknowledged by three people at the channel on condition of anonymity because the contract had not been signed, is significant in part because MSNBC and other news channels have been criticized for a paucity of minority hosts in prominent time slots. Mr. Sharpton, who is black and is a well-known civil rights activist and radio host, has been guest hosting in the 6 p.m. time slot for the last three weeks. 

    Let’s see.  Jew-baiter, unrepentant fraudster, tax delinquent, former Democratic National Convention speaker and presidential candidate.

    Yup, he’ll fit right in.

    After looking at the other contributors on MSNBC I have concluded that the Rev Al is not the token Black at MSNBC, he is the token conservative.

    What’s the problem? While the black establishment seizes on the least possible evidence of racism to denounce its opponents and call for their removal from public life, it’s clear that even among leaders who cannot conceivably be termed anti-Semitic themselves do not see open, overt, and vicious anti-Semitism to be any sort of disqualifier, or even something worth an apology.


    You forgot to list Mr. Sharpton’s long time occupation: rabid race pimp.

    The Church of What’s Happenin’ Now just called a preacher.
