MSNBC Anchor Introduces Jesse Jackson as Al Sharpton


Jim Bowman alerted me to this goofiness on his delightful blog, Blithespirit . Notice the softball question that the anchor had tossed at Sharpton, oops, Jackson. Notice, too, how the anchor, Contessa Brewer, groveled before His Reverendness. And the White House insists that FOX News is the only cable network that’s just a propagandist for a political party. (Go to Instapundit for the kind of reaction that we would have had from the left if a FOX News anchor had made the same mistake.)

P.S. I haven’t seen Jackson so taken aback and upset since a fellow editorial writer a the Sun-Times mentioned to the rev during one of his interminable meetings with the editorial board that it looked like he had put on a few pounds. Man, I haven’t seen anyone glare as hard and long as Jackson did then.
