The Rev. Al Sharpton Is Not Having a Good Week!

First Eric Gardner’s daughter Erica, went on camera exposing the founder of NAN (The National Action Network), as “Being all about the money“. Erica, whose father was the chokehold victim by Staten Island police, also complained that the Staten Island director of Sharpton’s National Action Network, Cynthia Davis, scolded her for handing out street fliers about her father’s case that did not include NAN’s logo.

Now in another bombshell revelation about the good right Rev. Al Sharpton, The National Association of African-American Owned Media claims, Comcast paid Sharpton and his National Action Network a cool $3.8 million dollars — so that he wouldn’t complain about the lack of black cable TV programming.

The Cable giant is suing Sharpton siting, that the activist would keep his $750,000-a-year gig as host on MSNBC which it co-owns even as his ratings slump and his ratings are slumping. However Sharpton was paid cash donations in exchange for not screaming about Comcast lack of solely black-owned channels.

The lawsuit — decrying the proposed merger between Comcast and Time Warner — said that Comcast carries just one completely black-owned channel, The Africa Channel, and that Time Warner is no better.

The group’s allegations of payouts also factor in Sharpton’s TV salary, which he has been receiving since starting to host MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation” in 2011, the suit says.

Sharpton says, “the lawsuit is frivolous at best” but it seems he’s made a lot of enemies on his ride to easy street.
