Sharpton Wants FCC To Shut Down Limbaugh's 'Racist Talk'

About

It's no secret that Rev. Al Sharpton isn't a fan of Rush Limbaugh. Now Sharpton is hoping the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will finally do something about the conservative radio host. Sharpton told MSNBC's Ed Schultz Monday that he conducting a series of meetings with the FCC to see if anything can be done to put a stop to what Schultz called Limbaugh's "racist-type talk." "We have a series of meetings going on, and we're going to see the FCC next week," Sharpton said. "We're not going to stand by and allow publicly regulated radio and television just go for marketing and promoting this kind of racism."
