“This is a travesty,” Kurtz said, citing Sharpton’s “political” eulogy at Brown’s funeral yesterday, meeting with Michael Brown’s family, and what Kurtz says is Sharpton’s “acknowledgment” that he is a conduit for the Obama administration for on-the-ground information on Ferguson.
“This just reeks that MSNBC thinks this acceptable…you can’t be a player and cover the game,” Kurtz added. O’Reilly chimed in he believes Sharpton “almost singlehandedly has corrupted NBC News,” dismissing MSNBC President Phil Griffin‘s defense that the network has been transparent about Sharpton’s dual roles. Yesterday, Sharpton spoke at Brown’s funeral in St. Louis in the afternoon and later hosted “PoliticsNation” from there at 6pmET. He led the show covering the funeral, playing parts of his eulogy off the top.
