Not a good day for the right Reverend Al.
First, MSNBC drops his show....and now this:

Today, Comcast and Time Warner Cable were served with a lawsuit from a group of African-American media owners seeking $20 billion — yes, “billion,” with a “b” — for discriminatory practices, and alleges that Al Sharpton and his organizations received big money to look the other way.

The lawsuit goes on to say that Comcast made large cash “donations” to obtain support for its acquisition. The money includes $3.8 million to Sharpton and his National Action Network. The money, it’s charged, was meant to pay Sharpton to endorse the NBCU deal and divert attention away from discrimination. As for Sharpton’s MSNBC gig, the complaint says, “Despite the notoriously low ratings that Sharpton’s show generates, Comcast has allowed Sharpton to maintain his hosting position for more than three years in exchange for Sharpton’s continued public support for Comcast on issues of diversity.

Sharpton is a weasel playing the race card for monetary gain?

The hustle has been exposed. This is how most of these bojangling buck dancing civil rights "leaders" make their money. Rainbow Push (Jesse Jackson) and National Action Network (Al Sharpton) basically get these corporations to make donations to their "non-profit" as basically a payoff to keep them from riling up the low info sheeple with charges of racism.

This action doesn't bode well for Sharpton's current 'shakedown' of Sony Pictures.

Makes more and more sense why Al may be losing his show.

I am curious if Al has the money to pay his tax bill yet?

Between him and the gubmint employees, sure is a lot of unpaid taxes. I love that he's losing his show,
but will miss his teleprompter blunders on youtube.
