MSNBC's Contessa Brewer Calls Jesse Jackson Al Sharpton - Jesse Not Thrilled

TVnewser.com reported on the Incident When Contessa Brewer Introduces the Rev. Al Sharpton When It Really Was the Rev. Jesse Jackson. This Occured On the Live 2Pm Hour of MSNBC Live today. The Confusion May Have been Caused by A Typo on Her TelePrompTer.

Around 2:30pmET this afternoon,on ”msnbc Live’‘ MSNBC anchor Contessa Brewer was introducing a segment on unemployment and brought in her guest: “Joining me now to talk about this and the nation’s real problem of joblessness, the Rev. Al Sharpton...”

One problem: Brewer was interviewing the Rev. Jesse Jackson. And he made her aware of that fact.

“I’m Rev. Jesse Jackson.”

“Right. I’m so sorry,” said Brewer. “The script in front of me said Rev. Al Sharpton. I’m looking at your face. I know who you are, Rev. Jackson, we all do. I’m sorry.”
