Sharpton does not identify himself as a journalist. Neither does MSNBC, he broadcasts there as an out and out advocate. NOthing wrong with that, its a free country last time I looked.
I'll tell you this, I wish the Catholic Church had a hundred thousand Al Sharptons. All of them making a great big messy fuss every time one child even drops a smidgen of a hint that some person in authority messed with him. That's what I wish. I wish for a million loud mouthed Reverend Al Sharptons.
well A. Sharpton is a legitimate journalist and B. He is just a race pimp trying to make more money for himself and C. He works for a third rate news organization, wait third rate is way to high.
Al Sharpton is a racist piece of **** whose career is based solely on creating an incendiary relationship between races for the sole purpose of self promotion. Suggesting that he is "legitimate" is an insult to even the worst journalists.
What makes you think news has anything to do with legitimacy?
It's only because the guy was black.
