Rev. Jesse to MSNBC: It's Jackson If You're Nasty

10/21/2009 6:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

During an important discussion on income inequality, an anchor for MSNBC got her Reverends mixed up -- introducing Rev. Jesse Jackson as Rev. Al Sharpton.

Contessa Brewer ended up blaming the identity crisis on the teleprompter -- but by the look on Rev. Jackson's face ... the damage was done.

It would have been better if after he said that he was Revered Jesse Jackson she would have said: "you're not answering my question Mr. Sharpton".

There interchangeable. Both say they are working for civil rights, but really it is there own pocket. What fascinates me is they stir up racial hatred, to secure their own purpose, then walk away. Prime example was the Duke University fiasco. They never apologize, but require others to. I still can't understand the appeal of Jackson or Sharpton. I think they have done more to hurt than help. Read bio's on them, not good!

First of all, Contessa Brewer is a Nasty, Nasty person on air. Funny, how the MSNBC female anchors are brunettes, and for the most part mean natured, and the FOX female anchors are very smart, quick witted, attractive blondes...Anyway, Rev. Jackson should be annoyed, but, I agree, both REV's are white haters. (Rev. Al, wants to be in Michael's will, Funy, how Randy Jackson, who by the way does not work, lives at home with Katherine, surely, now lives off of Michael's estate allowance to Katherine,..That guy needs to get a job. No wonder Michael kept far away, and his kids further away. They all need to take a right exit out of Hayvenhurst, since Michael is the owner, and now the Kids really own it, ~ they need to all get their own homes and support themselves. I read when Michael was married to Lisa, they wanted a reunion show, and Michael told Lisa he wold rather write them a check for 20 million to just go away...Michael was the family star, the hardest working, the most giving and loving. They are just moochers...I am sure LaToya, since she was the first in Michael's house stole every bit of cash she could find, including jewelry...She does not work, She just lost a home in Las Vegas to foreclosure. Now, we see her in expensive gowns, and jewelry on every red carpet she can manage. Ugh!!

Drama Drama...Baby Mama....    

Wow...she must be dumb and really stupid or a totally bad liar. How on earth can you know someone's real name, but yet go ahead and call them by someone elses name, and admitting in the same breath that you all know who he is? What the hell is the apology for then? Are you really sorry? This is whacked!

Can't fix stupid, but the two men are very different. How very embarrassing for her and the network.

The two men look nothing alike.

I'm not playing the race card btw; I'm a blue eyed, blond white girl. I do however, respect Rev. Jackson. Al Sharpton - no so much.

Seriously, I can't tell them apart. They both sound the same to me. But if she was looking right at him then she's an idiot.
