MSNBC contributor Al Sharpton has found himself on the receiving end of a racial discrimination lawsuit.
The National Association of African-American Owned Media filed suit Friday in Los Angeles against Comcast and Time Warner, accusing them of discriminating against black-owned media companies, and asking for $20 billion in damages. The two media giants are in the process of seeking regulatory approval to merge.
How does Sharpton fit in?
Rush Limbaugh Posted and discussed Al Sharpton here today
What’s Going on with Rev. Al?
RUSH: Yeah, okay, well, that’s the second place that I have seen it, but I haven’t seen any real confirmation. We have a caller up here that we’re gonna get to in a minute that says that Al Sharpton has lost his show at PMSNBC. And I got an e-mail from a friend earlier today that Al Sharpton lost his show at PMSNBC. I haven’t seen it anywhere else. It’s not on the Drudge Report, and, if it’s not on the Drudge Report, it hasn’t happened.
So I don’t know, it has to have gotten started somewhere that they’ve canceled Sharpton. Frank Sinatra III they got rid of as well, and some woman, Melissa Harris-Perry, is that who it is? (interruption) Oh, yeah, Joy Reid. They got rid of Joy Reid and Frank Sinatra III, Ronan Farrow, but everybody knows. It’s not Frank Sinatra Jr. ’cause there is one, who, do you know, hates me? Frank Sinatra Jr., the people at Patsy’s told me and they can’t explain, but he does. I’ve seen it elsewhere. Frank Sinatra Jr. or at least he used to, and hasn’t anything changed since then. I don’t know why. I have no clue why.
I never said anything about his dad. I’ve always admired his dad, always did admire. It’s just a little throwaway. But I’ve not seen it elsewhere on Sharpton. I did see that Frank Sinatra III’s gone. (interruption) Well, they are worried about ratings. They have to be. They don’t have any. But this Frank Sinatra III, this was hilarious. This guy is, what, 26 years old, had never, ever done TV. I would have thought this guy would have been hired in radio first. That’s generally where people who have never done it before get hired. Ahem. Ahem. Excuse me. Slap my face. Anyway, after three days on the job, Frank Sinatra III won the Cronkite award for excellence in journalism, after three days on the job. This is a classic example of how the liberals and the Democrats circle the wagons.
