"Tavis Smiley, a prominent U.S. black liberal journalist, and Rev. Al Sharpton, a prominent U.S. black liberal Democratic activist, are having a pissing contest over how much U.S. President Barack Obama has - or has not - advanced a black liberal agenda. Mr. Smiley appeared on the "Tom Joyner Morning Show" to slam black liberal leaders for giving President Obama a pass. Rev. Sharpton later called into the show to take issue with Mr. Smiley's comments. Mr. Smiley later called into Rev. Sharpton's radio show. Bookeristas weigh in on the catfight."
