Reverend Who?

An MSNBC anchor made a big mistake when she introduced Rev. Jesse Jackson as Rev. Al Shaprton.

MSNBC anchor Contessa Brewer accidentally introduced Rev. Jesse Jackson as Rev. Al Sharpton during a live interview yesterday: “Joining me now to talk about this and the nation’s real problem of joblessness, the Rev. Al Shaprton…,” Brewer said. An unamused Jackson said: “I’m Rev. Jesse Jackson,” to which she responded: “Right, I’m so sorry. The script in front of me said ‘Rev. Al Sharpton.’ I’m looking at your face. I know who you are, Rev. Jackson, we all do. I’m sorry.” As put it: “Of course she knows who Jackson is. It’s still funny.”
