But this week put things over the top. The Post and Daily News each gave Sharpton front page billing on Wednesday, a day after the civil rights activist insisted he was no FBI informant.

"I was not and am not a rat, because I wasn’t with the rats. I’m a cat. I chase rats," Sharpton said at a press conference.

The Daily News actually depicted Sharpton as a feline.

The Post didn't play dress up, instead taking a more understated route and dubbing Sharpton "Big Pussy."
