Sharpton, Clinton, Hypocrisy, And Imus

There's a lot of hypocrisy going on with this Imus mudslinging. Hillary Clinton said yesterday of Imus, "I've never wanted to go on his show and I certainly don't ever intend to go on his show, and I felt that way before his latest outrageous, hateful, hurtful comments." None-the-less she has no problem attending a fundraiser hosted for her by Rupert Murdoch. If anyone was responsible for hateful hurtful comments in the media it's the Fox News Channel founder. Hillary here is taking a cheap shot at Barack Obama, who has appeared on Imus though he says he wouldn't again.

And Al Sharpton says of his decision to not go on the Don Imus show, "(It) is not about courage to appear on his show. I could not tell people to don't watch him, don't listen to him, don't appear, and then go myself. I'm not in the business of creating an audience for him." Well that kind of thinking sure didn't stop Al from appearing on The O'Reilly Factor to talk about Hillary Clinton's plantation comments.
