MSNBC Mistakes Jesse Jackson for Al Sharpton http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/msnbc-mistakes-jesse-jackson-for-al-sharpton/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/msnbc-mistakes-jesse-jackson-for-al-sharpton/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 MSNBC mistakes Jesse Jackson for Al Sharpton - Watch more Funny VideosWell... kudos, I guess, to MSNBC's Contessa Brewer for not disappearing and leaving a Contessa Brewer-shaped cloud of dust after having the Reverend Jesse Jackson remind her that he is, in fact, not the Reverend Al Sharpton as she introduced him. Apparently MSNBC thinks all wise, elderly black reverends are named Rev. Al Sharpton. Or else they thought Al Sharpton was coming, and he cancelled at the last minute, leaving them with one choice: get "the other one." Then some poor intern forgot to change the script... and the rest pretty writes itself.  Tune in to "Countdown" this evening, when Keith Olberman interviews star of the Lethal Weapon series, Forrest Whitaker.
