MSNBC Pres. Defends Al Sharpton’s Role In Trayvon Case: We Didn’t Hire Him To Be ‘Neutered’ News Presenter

Mediaite
Thursday, 29 March 2012

Last weekend, CNN's *Howard Kurtz* took issue with the dual role Rev.* Al Sharpton* is playing in the *Trayvon Martin* case. While he is an MSNBC anchor, Sharpton has also been an activist who "has claimed a starring role in the Trayvon Martin case." On a Reliable Sources segment, and then in a Daily Beast piece, Kurtz said even commentators have rules to abide by, but Sharpton has "obliterated" any such boundaries. In a recent Associated Press piece that tackled the same topic, MSNBC head *Phil Griffin* openly stated, "We didn't hire Al to become a neutered kind of news presenter."
