Anchor Contessa Brewer Calls Reverend Jesse Jackson Al Sharpton
MSNBC news anchor Contessa Brewer had a major blooper yesterday as she was interviewing Reverend Jesse Jackson on economic inequalities. The 35-year-old anchor addressed Reverend Jackson as Al Sharpton, another prominent black minister and civil rights activist. Just like Jackson, Sharpton also ran for President as a Democrat.
During her show on Wednesday, Brewer started off talking about the morality of the market place in today's world. She than introduced her guest Jesse Jackson sitting in the remote studio in Burbank, California, as Reverend Al Sharpton. Jackson has evidently realized the mistake and appeared to be disgruntled. But, he waited for Brewer to finish her question, before stating bluntly, "I am Reverend Jesse Jackson." To which Brewer said, "Right. You know, I am so sorry. The script in front of me said 'Reverend Al Sharpton' and I am looking at your face, I know you are Reverend Jackson. We all do. I am sorry..."
It seems Brewer has a history of blunders on her show -- she fixed her makeup while on air and oftentimes gets irritated by her guests. She once cut shot an interviewee wanting to ask her a question, saying "No, I am the interviewer and this is the end of my show."
