    MSNBC Mistaken History: Segregationist George Wallace Was A Republican?

    Former Alabama Governor George Wallace was many things: segregationist, lawyer, Methodist. But one thing he most certainly was not: a Republican. But during a segment of last night’s All In on MSNBC, a chyron mistakenly identified the well-known racist governor as a member of the GOP, despite his affiliation with the Democratic Party of that era.

    While making the case that Wallace was the clear villain during the civil rights movement for his actions in blocking black students from registering at desegregated public schools, host Chris Hayes noted that, at the time, many believed it was not clear who was “hero” or “villain” — much like today’s National Security Agency scandal.

    They admitted a few weeks ago that they weren't a news organization. They were a political commentary channel.

    I'll be surprised if they last past the 2016 election cycle in their present form.
