Which Fox News Host Does Al Sharpton Dine with Twice a Year?

Al Sharpton‘s media diet is the subject of The Atlantic Wire’s “What I Read” this week, and the MSNBC host — who admits he Googles himself daily — details what he thinks makes good television. Sharpton says he likes “people that make you think,” using Rachel Maddow and Jon Stewart as his examples, and also reserves some praise for a certain Fox News host:

Take Bill O’Reilly. I don’t agree with him but he’s intelligent and I can have a conversation with him. As a matter of fact, we go to dinner together twice a year. We’ll go uptown one time and downtown the other. We’ve been to Sylvia’s, Amy Ruth’s and The Harvard Club. He’s a smart person that just sees the world differently than me. We can actually talk. I even talk to Sean Hannity from time to time. But I could not find myself eating dinner with Glenn Beck.
