MSNBC Mistakes Jesse Jackson for Al Sharpton (Video)

I bet they never got Reverend Jesse Jackson's name wrong over at Fox News. If Fox News had done this, MSNBC would be playing the video clip 24/7 and screaming "racism" from the highest rooftops. This was not pretty.

Yes, mistakes happen, but this one is an especially disheartening reminder that once upon a time we thought that if we ever got a 'liberal' cable news channel, it would be so much more classy than MSNBC. I voted for Jesse Jackson when he ran for the Democratic nomination in 1988. Today, the Reverend looks as disillusioned as I feel.
