“Al Sharpton Is The New Face Of “PoliticsNation”


The civil rights activist has gone from marching in the streets to officially being named host of a weeknight hour of “PoliticsNation,” on MSNBC.

So the question is: will Sharpton succeed as the show’s host?

Sharpton had been guest hosting in that time slot and the ratings have risen about 18 percent since the controversial Sharpton began guest hosting about two months ago.

I’m just wondering if the cable network will dictate to the civil rights activist how he will negotiate both his roles (as activist and host) and what they [the network] will allow him to do; or what they will ask him not to do, since he has taken over as an anchor on MSNBC.

I caught a segment of the show tonight and thought Sharpton did well in debate HOWEVER, he needs training on trimming down his tone and being a bit calmer with his hype; meaning: he’s using an outside voice and not a studio voice in a softer sense.

I think maybe he also needs to get use to the teleprompter because he’s cutting off his guests before they can complete or finish their statements.

Catch Sharpton nightly on PoliticsNation, check your local listings, and tell me if you think Sharpton will fare well in this new role as MSNC’s host or will he opt out and continue in his civil rights position?

In ending he said: “If PolitcsNation is not on your television, then your television is not really on”

Go head Sharpton!!!!!

  1. I caught his show 2night Ms. Bell and yes he is loud but i think that’s because he’s use to talking to a crowd.

        I still don’t like what he did about the Tawana Brawley fiasco and hate that he made Bensonhurst residents all look like racists, but maybe he is changing. I will give him a chance and check out the show.

    1. I have liked Al Sharpton’s show since he became guest host. I think he treats guests with respects, including Republicans, and he has really been an excellent host. I think MSNBC has made a wise choice here by choosing him.

  2. I applaud MSNBC for hiring Rev. AL, they’re stepping outside the box to get the viewers to enjoy another perspective & opinion on politics from someone whom has the intelligence to tell it like it is! 2 thumbs up for the Rev. & MSNBC.

  3. He probably took the job in order to pay the IRS the $538,000. he owes them as a result of their lien in September 2010 or his wife Kathy’s alimony from their 2004 split. I would not watch his show even if he was the only one left on TV. Sounds like he is trying to further his own agenda–next he’ll be a presidential candidate. Another one who never held a paying job for a corporation.

        What remains to be seen is how clean or how dirty Sharpton will play?

        He has the opportunity to be a pointed stick, which in a way he has always been… a mixed messenger… and the public has very little ability to sort out the valuable messages about justice vs injustice from the communication style and the mistakes of the messenger.

    Rev. Sharpton makes a good guest on msmbc but it’s hard to listen to him for an entire hour. Seems like he speaks too loudly and in sort of a monotone voice. I like the guy but I can only watch his show for about 10 minutes

    1. Yeah Cameo,
      My dad says that he thinks Rev. Sharpton has some good points, in that he has dedicated much of his time and effort to civil rights and justice. BUT he has also disgraced himself by using inflammatory rhetoric and has unjustly attacked innocent people for imagined transgressions in order to rationalize his cause of the moment, much as do the right wing cable presenters on FOX and friends.

      My father suggests that Rev. Al may have toned down his act somewhat since the election of Mr. Obama, as one would expect, but he still exists as a personification of it’s “all about him”

  17. Not too long ago Al Sharpton was asked if The Tawana Brawley incident was all a hoax and he stammered about and changed the subject. For him to say it was all made for him to make money would be admitting that he used the race card in the most abhorant way to further his career and fill his bank account. He was charged with and found guilty of slander and let black businessment pay the man he slandered. He is a liar and cheat. He tried to destroy people to get his agenda furthered.
