On the Reverend, Al Sharpton
Look, folks, I fully understand the frustration and anger that Mr. Sharpton feels over the shooting of that young kid down in Florida. But I also understand that this same Mr. Sharpton also needs to make a decision, and soon. Namely, Sharpton needs to ask himself, is he an activist, or is he a journalist? I mean, right now, you've got the fellow rabble-rousing at these rallies during the day and then covering these very same rallies at night. That cannot continue. He either has to be the story or the story-teller (a little something called journalistic ethics). He can't be both. Hopefully, there are still at least a few honorable people over there at NBC and they can rectify this - SOON.
