    Every journalist who believed BushCo's lies about Iraq, who did not do their due diligence as journalists to uncover those lies, or at least freaking report them, and haven't publicly apologized should lose their positions too.
    Also, there's no penalty for "pundits" calling elections wildly wrong. It really is absurd. So to the extent that most of them are charlatans, Rev. Al definitely belongs, and his commentary is better than most.

      pundits calling elections wildly wrong.  I'm talking about journalists who beat the drums for a war based on lies and did not do their due dilligence. Who published and spread the lies of the Bush administration.  Who with few exceptions didn't have the courage to stand up and say this is BS and we have no justifiable reason to go to invade Iraq.

      The outcome of this caused infinitely more harm than Al Sharpton on his worse day.  Furthermore, your credo seems to be once a sharlton, always a sharlton, regarding Sharpton, regardless of a lot of evidence to the opposite.

      You can continue your quest to discredit Al Sharpton, but you won't be heard over the many people who have come to admire him a great deal.
