Jackson Controversy : Bloggers Weigh In
As you likely know by now, Jesse Jackson made headlines yesterday for saying he wanted to "cut [Barack Obama's] n*ts off," in part, over the senator's recent addresses before black audiences.
On today's show, we'll air Farai's conversation with Jackson, recorded yesterday after the news about the remark was leaked to the press, but before Fox broadcast it.
UPDATE: Listen to the interview.
Here's the clip in question:
And here's a sampling of what our regular bloggers' roundtable guests have to say:
Electronic Village: Jackson has been a lifetime hero in my household. That ended today.
The Field Negro: The "audacity" of fake friends.
La Shawn Barber's Corner: Leave it up to mainstream media to make an instant tree out of an acorn!
Ragged Thots: Getting attacked over fatherhood -- from Jesse Jackson?
What About Our Daughters: I have to agree he is talking "down" to Blacks. Sorry Obama acolytes.
Plus, the blog, TVNewser, explains why it took Fox News more than three days to discover the comment.
