MSNBC's Contessa Brewer had an embarrassing slip-up Wednesday afternoon when she introduced Jesse Jackson by calling him Al Sharpton.

"Joining me now to talk about this and the nation's real problem of joblessness, the Reverend Al Sharpton," Brewer said.

"I'm Reverend, Jesse Jackson," Jackson replied.

"Right, I'm so sorry," an embarrassed Brewer responded. "The script in front of me said 'Reverend Al Sharpton.' I'm looking at your face. I know who you are, Reverend Jackson, we all do. I'm sorry."
