Updated: Save for Gov. Nikki Haley, MSNBC Omits Coverage From Minority Speakers at ‘Racist’ RNC Convention
Update/Correction: MSNBC aired South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley’s speech. Haley is Indian-American. A funny thing happened on race-obsessed MSNBC tonight. The liberal network failed to give viewers coverage of the speakers who happen to be member of racial minorities. As Francesca Chambers, Editor of Red Alert Politics, reported on August 28th:
When popular Tea Party candidate Ted Cruz, the GOP nominee for Senate, took the stage, MSNBC cut away from the Republican National Convention and the Hispanic Republican from Texas’ speech.
MSNBC stayed on commercial through former Democratic Rep. Artur Davis’ speech, as well. Davis, who recently became a Republican, is black. Then, when Puerto Rican Governor Luis Fortuno’s wife Luce’ Vela Fortuño took the stage minutes later, MSNBC hosts Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews opted to talk over the First Lady’s speech. And Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval? Noticeably missing from MSNBC, too. Mia Love, a black candidate for Congress in Utah, was also ignored by MSNBC.
Why is MSNBC trying to exclude conservative Republicans of color in their coverage? Could it be that they are aghast that they’re not on the side of the infallible Barack Obama? Could it be because it cuts against their persistent whine that the GOP is the party of “dog whistle” politics aimed at working-class white voters?
It’s ironic since Daily Beast contributor Michael Tomasky friviously labeled this year’s RNC convention as racist.
Shall we take bets on when Condi Rice’s speech will be interrupted by a Michelin tire commercial?
The Democrat-Media Complex is hard at work.
CSPAN carried the full convention coverage with NO commentary, no leftist propagandists, no commercials – just non-stop live coverage of each and every speech and entertainment break.
