Just to prove how loony a liberal I am. I can't stand Al Sha

by Ziks511 / January 15, 2013 / 6:51 PM UTC

Sharpton. I don't know why MSNBC supports him when there are millions more thoughtful African-American and Latin-American and European=American liberal commentators available.

It has nothing to do with race, and more to do with attitude, and presentation. I don't find his conclusions to be logically derived from the source incident or information he has or particularly coherent in their formulation, and I find his presentation to be unconvincing even of his own belief in the truth of what he reports or comments on, let alone persuasive to me, an old if liberal, white guy.

Diversity of opinion is fine, but when there's only one station that comes even close to representing my views, I despair that it squanders whatever credibility it has in giving him a forum.

Oh, well,
Rob

He is a very divisive man
by Josh K / January 17, 2013 / 5:36 AM UTC

He keeps invoking the name of Martin Luther King, Jr. but I think Dr. King would disapprove of him.

There's also the matter of the money he still owes Steven Pagones.
