MSNBC is taking issue with a comment Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity made in his interview last night with George Zimmerman. Hannity asked Zimmerman about Al Sharpton, who hosts “PoliticsNation” on MSNBC.

“What do you say to Al Sharpton, and those that rushed to judgment?” Hannity asked Zimmerman.

MSNBC responds:

MSNBC would like to set the record straight following some misinformation presented by Fox News during the interview with George Zimmerman last night. Reverend Al Sharpton never “rushed to judgment,” as stated by Mr. Hannity. Reverend Sharpton repeatedly called for calm and for a more thorough investigation in the wake of the tragic events. Ultimately, the authorities agreed an arrest was warranted.
