MSNBC’s Al Sharpton Hit with $20 Billion Racial Discrimination Suit, May Lose Daily TV Show

All day news has been swirling that MSNBC race baiter Al Sharpton was fired from MSNBC after a $20 billion racial discrimination lawsuit was brought against him. But thus far it looks like he isn’t yet fired but may lose his prime time daily show and will be shunted off to the weekend graveyard shift.

I didn’t want to report on the story until things were sorted out–even Rush Limbaugh was confused about what was going on today. But now it seems that things have settled a bit.

For sure Sharpton faces a major lawsuit.

Even though the FCC hasn’t yet ruled on the proposed merger between Comcast and Time Warner Cable, one group has already filed a lawsuit claiming at least $20 billion in damages from the way the two giants allegedly discriminate against black-owned media.

The complaint, filed in California on Friday, comes from the National Association of African-American Owned Media, which also filed a similar suit against AT&T and DirecTV in December.

This time, the plaintiff is not only targeting both Comcast and TWC — on the eve of the two companies merging to become what would be the largest pay television distributor in the United States — but also various African-American advocacy groups and MSNBC host Al Sharpton for allegedly facilitating discrimination.

With its failing ratings, MSNBC can’t afford this mess, for sure.

So, now rumors have it that Al will lose his prime TV show and will be cast off into the weekends were his show will eventually die off.

This is the beginning of the end (at last) of this racist, hate-spewing liar on TV. But contrary to early reports today, it isn’t the end quite yet.
