Jesse Jackson pissed at the CBC

Rev. Jesse Jackson today denounced the Congressional Black Caucus’s planned presidential debate partnership with FOX "News." He called for yesterday’s decision to be reversed and for presidential candidates not to attend the debate.

Jackson said, “I am disappointed by the Congressional Black Caucus Institute's partnership with FOX, and strongly encourage them to reverse that decision. Why would presidential candidates, or an organization that is supposed to advocate for Black Americans, ever give a stamp of legitimacy to a network that continually marginalizes Black leaders and the Black community?"
