Évocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie - DVD Review: http://aalbc.com/reviews/evocateur.html. It fascinating to consider Al Sharpton's national profile was greatly enhanced by his appearances the Morton Downey Jr's TV program.
Morton Downey, Jr., the "Father of TV Trash Talk," known for his abrasive, in-your-face style. When he was fired from his radio talk show at KFBK in Sacramento, CA, in 1984 it was Rush Limbaugh who took his place. I met and worked with him when starting to work in radio in Washington D.C. during his brief weekend stint at WWDC. From a privileged family he grew up next door to the Kennedy family in Hyannis Port, MA. His best friend growing up was Ted Kennedy. Wow! The stories he could tell!
