Al Sharpton and Panel Accuse ‘Right-Wing Pundits’ of Stoking Racial Fears for Ratings: Beck, O’Reilly, Limbaugh Specialize in ‘White Grievance’

Al Sharpton and Panel Accuse Right Wing Pundits Like Beck of Stoking Racial Fears for Ratings

(MSNBC)

On “Politics Nation” Wednesday, MSNBC host Al Sharpton and his panel agreed that “right-wing pundits” like Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Bill O’Reilly are stoking racial fears to boost their ratings. Some might call this accusation ironic as many argue that Sharpton has built an entire career by doing that exact thing.

MSNBC contributor Joy Reid asserted that successful conservative personalities, including the ones previously mentioned, have carved out a special niche in talk radio by actively promoting “white grievance” to their old, white audiences.

“All of these people are destroying what they see as their America, and that siege bunker mentality is great for ratings because it keeps people on edge, angry, and feeling like they need to hear from their guru every day. So it’s all done for ratings, but it doesn’t deal with real problems,” Reid said.

Sharpton agreed with her argument, chiming in with a “yeah” during her comments. He previously argued that conservatives are “afraid of” having a real conversation about the issues that affect the black community and slammed O’Reilly for saying the “disintegration” of the black family is a huge contributor to problems within the black community.

Sharpton went on to say it is “very telling” that conservatives won’t talk about important racial issues, like “racial injustice and profiling,” but want to address things like violence in the black community and promoting a strong family unit.

 Sharpton is a race baiting, media whoring pimp.  Does any one remember his outrage and starring roles in the Tawanda Brawley and Duke Univ polo team lies?  He was front and center stirring up racist attacks on 'whites'.  He and Jesse Jackson are cut from the same cloth.
