Jesse Jackson published an op-ed in the Chicago Sun-Times blasting the Democratic presidential candidates--with the exception of John Edwards--for ignoring African-American voters and issues of their community. Lou Dobbs brings on radio talk show hosts Joe Madison, Peter Boyles and Rachel Maddow on to discuss. Unfortunately, none of the guests really had a problem with the statement, which makes for boring TV. But Peter Boyles (who has a history of controversial and factually-challenged statements) had a problem with the messenger, and that's what makes hopping TV. His dismissal of Jackson as irrelevant gets Madison angry enough to hijack the segment until Lou Dobbs is forced to beg Rachel Maddow to be the voice of reason.
