Meet the Press Gives Al Sharpton Unchallenged Platform To Promote Involvement In Ferguson

With MSNBC’s Al Sharpton controversially playing the dual roles of television host and activist surrounding the events in Ferguson, Missouri, NBC’s Meet the Press seems to feel it necessary to promote the liberal activist even further. On Sunday, August 24, fill-in host Chris Jansing, NBC’s Chief White House Correspondent, concluded her moderating duties by giving Sharpton 4 and a half minutes of unchallenged air time to promote his involvement in the Ferguson protests following the death of Michael Brown.
