CNN's Howard Kurtz was astonished that MSNBC has allowed Al Sharpton to be both an activist and a news anchor in covering the Trayvon Martin shooting. Near the beginning of his 11 a.m. Sunday show Reliable Sources, Kurtz maintained that Sharpton should have had to choose between activism and journalism in that case.
Kurtz asked "how on earth can Al Sharpton go there, and be an activist and stand with the parents and he asked people to contribute money and he went to the Justice Department with the parents of Trayvon Martin....And then he does his show and then he speaks at the rally again?" [Video below the break. Audio here.]

C’mon Howie. Don’t act so startled! This is MSDNC we’re talking about....
You had to figure that our “elite” would get worried that their brand is being reduced, maybe now the conservative step and fetchits like Hannity will stop sounding like a pale imitation of Sharpton.
Whores of a feather
Howie, you are not that stupid. How about calling them out as who they are. Of course you couldn’t say such because it’s just not politically correct & possible job loss. Your question should be, “Why anyone watches them or me”.
Resist we much, indeed.
He is the token and they are afraid of him the criminal in charge.
Al Sharpton has no connection to “journalism” or “news reporting.”
-— and neither does MSNBC
Maybe that evil moron thought he was actually carrying a skillet! Gosh, I’d hate to get hit in the nose with a cast iron skillet!
There are no journalists at CNN - it’s all democrat activists pretending to be journalists. Same with ABC and NBC. Total sell outs.
Yep, they are saddled with him now, aren’t they??
That reminds me, how is Chelsea Clintons tv career going? I haven’t heard a peep in a long time.
The only difference between Sharpton and the rest of the MSM is that he stepped outside his office to do his advocating. The rest continue to do it at their keyboard or in the TV studio.
Poor Howard Kurtz, he actually thinks MSNBC is a news agency.
It turns out working class hero, “Pro-union” Special Ed has been on their payroll for years now...sooooo...wutzubigdeal?
Why is Al Sharpton even in the media, he has no credibility as observed, he will lie;

Al Sharpton told Bill OReilly tonight that hes seen the non-existent tape that purportedly shows Tea Party Protesters calling Black Caucus Members the n-word. Of course there is no tape. Sharpton is lying.
Because without him the MSNBC host line-up would be whiter than a Klan meeting.
One would think Rev. Al would have had to choose between being a reverend and a race huckster, too.
Per a story on FR in 2008-ish, 58% of NBC NEw York Staffers are GLBTQ.
Given that, why does this surprise you?
They have a coupon for Clorox to clean the fecal residue.
Thank you, saved me the trouble of writing the same thing...
