Sharpton Appears to Win Olbermann's MSNBC Spot (http://www.newsmax.com/US/AlSharpton-MSNBC-Olbermann/2011/07/21/id/404396)


The Rev. Al Sharpton apparently will have a new pulpit soon on MSNBC. The controversial civil rights activist will be given the 6 p.m. Eastern time slot that opened as a result of the lineup shake-up that occurred with the departure of Keith Olbermann in January, The New York Times reports.

Al Sharpton, MSNBC, OlbermannThe move is a bit of a surprise, as Internet talk show host Cenk Uygur has been trying out for the slot for about six months. Sharpton has been anchoring the hour for the past three weeks.

And he starts it off in classic Reverend Sharpton fashion:

Sharpton Slams Black Journalists Questioning His Credentials (http://newsone.com/nation/ggaynor/rev-al-sharpton-slams-black-journalists-questioning-his-credentials/)


Rev. Al Sharpton spoke out against Black journalists who criticized his credentials to host an upcoming show on MSNBC.

“We can’t get into a crabs in the barrel mentality,’’ Sharpton told The Root. “We cannot let them play us off one another. There is a history here. Kweisi Mfume had a talk show. Jesse Jackson Jr. had a talk show. If someone can advocate nationwide, we need to do that given the pain of our people. We need to do that on television, in newspapers and magazines. And all of us need to be united.’’

Stay classy MSNBC.

This is the best. No matter who FoxNews hires I will always be able to cling to this.

And can somebody please tell me what the heck a "crabs in the barrel mentality" is?

I honestly don't know what they said, but my guess is they questioned his "credentials" to be a host that will not make an arse of himself and a bigger joke of MSNBC, not just to be a host.

The fact that he is far-left and says a lot of stupid things that most people disagree with is all that is needed to qualify him to be an MSNBC host.
