Sometimes the story just writes itself. From the Daily Caller:
One of the left’s favorite attacks on the Republican Party is that it is the party of old white people, devoid of diversity and probably racist.
If you were watching MSNBC’s coverage of the Republican National Convention in Tampa on Tuesday night, you might believe those assertions, since missing from the coverage was nearly every ethnic minority that spoke during Tuesday’s festivities.
In lieu of airing speeches from former Democratic Rep. Artur Davis, a black American; Mia Love, a black candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives from Utah; and Texas senatorial hopeful Ted Cruz, a Latino American, MSNBC opted to show commentary anchored by Rachel Maddow from Rev. Al Sharpton, Ed Schultz, Chris Matthews, Chris Hayes and Steve Schmidt.
I am not sure what there is to say really. I’m not shocked or surprised–media bias barely even registers anymore. I post this, I suppose, only to let it be know to the widest audience possible. So to those readers that tweet and link, thank you. I don’t ask for this out of vanity. The only way to counter the “mainstream” media is to flood alternate media sources with the truth. While many of my friends no longer watch the news or buy a paper, far too many people still do.
Update: Glenn Reynolds has picked up on the coverage angle.
Is NBC racist? Looks that way. I mean, they’re airbrushing out the black people!
