The New York Daily News and The New York Post are really enjoying this story about Al Sharpton being an FBI informant. Though Sharpton has been plagued by rumors that he was informant during the 80s for years, The Smoking Gun ramped things up by publishing documents that provide new details.

Sharpton admitted cooperating with the FBI/NYPD unit that was targeting the Genovese crime family, but insisted he wasn’t a “rat.” ”I am not a rat,” Sharpton tweeted. “I am a cat, I chase rats thugs, gangsters, bigots, drug dealers. Bad cops whoever out of our community. That is right.”

Not only did Sharpton place quotation marks around that great statement — as if he was quoting someone else — he gave the Daily News and Post more ammo for their covers. We think the Daily News won this round, but only because that is one creepy illustration.
