Rev. Al Sharpton Allegedly Rewarded With “Chicken Dinner Payoff” for Keeping Other Blacks Off TV Blacks Off TV

Street preacher Al Sharpton was allegedly paid millions to keep his mouth shutSHARPTON WYCLEF HAITI while cable TV discriminated against black programming.

According to a $20 million dollar lawsuit brought by the National Association of African-American Owned Media, Sharpton and his shell non-profit, the National Action Network, took cash donations in exchange for not protesting against the lack of black programming on cable.

Sharpton was also promised that he’d keep his MSNBC job, which pays $750,000 per year, according to reports.

“The black community has been sold out by him,” comedian Byron Allen, a co-plaintiff and owner of Entertainment Studios, told The New York Post.

“Al Sharpton should be ashamed of himself for defending Comcast for a simple chicken-dinner payoff.”

Even though Sharpton was allegedly promised that he’d be able to keep his MSNBC show, rumors have been swirling that his show is about to be sidelined to weekends:

In the longer term, these sources said, the Rev. Al Sharpton—a larger-than-life personality who attracts a 35 percent African-American audience but continues, after 3½ years of nightly practice, to wrestle with his Teleprompter—could eventually be moved from his weeknight 6 p.m. slot to a weekend time period, as MNSBC President Phil Griffin attempts to reverse significant viewership slides by accentuating straight news over left-leaning opinion.

    Joy Reid program is relevant. Rev AL is entertaining.

    I cant wait unil the whole MSNBC coon show is a distant memory, black talking heads like Al and Karen Finney used the first black president as an opportunity to further divide the country and make sure NO real issues were on the table, Bam admitted he used coke and weed heavily but Ron and Rand were the people who spoke up on the issue of legalization, Bam was elected to be anti war but as soon as he won he welcomed the Hawks, Hillary & Petreyus to continue an aggressive foreign policy, MSNBC turned into a Klan rally where the only issue was the Presidents race and the people who dared to oppose him were the racist from the 60s who opposed the civil rights movement. I used to cheer these clowns on when they attacked Bush but as soon as they came to power they became the rabid racist of Fox news with worse more hateful rhetoric, anyone associated with this era must be remembered for the lies and distortion of truth that covered up for the banker class completely plundering of poor and middle income people.
