5683: Jackson-To-Jackson Coverage.

Jackson Actions in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…

• The Rev. Jesse Jackson apologized to Sen. Barack Obama for making a dumb remark in response to Obama’s moral lectures to Blacks. Jackson was caught on mic snapping, “I wanna cut his nuts out.” Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. delivered a blow to the balls by declaring, “I’m deeply outraged and disappointed in Reverend Jackson’s reckless statements about Senator Barack Obama.” No word yet from Tito or Jermaine Jackson.

• The American Medical Association will issue an apology for over 100 years of discriminatory policies that nixed Blacks from participating in the organization. “It is true that what the AMA did historically was awful,” said the American Cancer Society’s chief medical officer. “There were AMA local chapters that actually had rules against Black members well into the late 1960s, and policies that made blacks not feel comfortable well into the 1980s.” Hey, Madison Avenue makes these guys look like amateurs.

• Northwest Airlines will cut 2,500 jobs and proceed to charge passengers $15 to check luggage and up to $100 to redeem frequent-flier privileges. The airline issued no apology for anything.

• A pajama-clad Michael Jackson was spotted being pushed around in a wheelchair at a local bookstore. Not sure what Jacko wants to cut out at this point.
