    Yuck, what a mistake.

    Sharpton has to find racism and bigotry in everyone/everything he doesn't like, because it's all he's got. He's irrelevant in a moderate/decent society. I'm not saying that race relations are perfect here and now, but he makes things worse, not better.

    This is not a good idea.

    Do they really think that anyone would tune in to watch Al Sharpton? The guy is a joke and has been for years.

    Now I understand,this is what's meant by "playing the race card".

    It's worse then u think. Forget about everything u know about the man, he simply sucks on air. He stutters, shouts for no reason, messes up reading the TelePrompTer and can barely get through a sentence.

    I know his history, but I'll give him a chance and see just how bad or good he is.

    I can't stand watching Sharpton, he just got the job because of his celebrity status.

    Hayes on the other hand does a stand-up job when he fills in for hosts.

    Firing Uygur was a good move. One of the most unprofessional broadcasters I ever saw on TV.

    Sharpton? Bad move. Not only is he a racist dick, I saw him one night last week and he is horrible.

    Chris Hayes has proven himself a pro from what I've seen of him.

    Al Sharpton sucks. Why does anyone watch any of these stupid news channels?

    He's pretty bad. The man may be charismatic to some, but on TV he's a stiff. Highly boring. He won't last.

    She'll probably promise to be his first guest and then take it back right before she was supposed to appear.
