What Atrios Said

Brian Zick

Atrios sends a Memo to the Media Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are not the only black people in America, and more than that they do not have the ability to force themselves onto your news shows. There's a pattern here:1) Bigot eruption somewhere 2) Lots of people condemn it 3) Al Sharpton goes on every teevee program 4) The media people turn around and use Sharpton's past as a distraction/excuse for the current bigot eruptionIf Al Sharpton is an imperfect spokesperson for an issue, and you keep putting him on the teevee to be the spokesperson for that issue, then the obvious conclusion is that this is a deliberate strategy.
