If you were on Twitter last night, you followed the blow-by-blow as each and every minority speaker came on stage. The buzz was, MSNBC managed to cut to a commercial, or go to the studio, when a minority speaker came up. And there was a whole lot of them last night.
From Francesca Chambers:
MSNBC wants you to think the Republican Party hates minorities. So much so that the liberal news network cut minority speeches from it’s convention coverage.
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.
My only shock here is why everyone is surprised! This ain’t MSNBC’s first racist rodeo!
Remember a few year back, when the ObamaCare battle was in full swing? Before this evil piece of legislation became law, there were some seriously heated town hall meetings across the country.
At one meeting in Arizona, a black man named Chris showed up with a rifle. Legal in his state. Probably not the smartest thing to do, but legal. The man was there protesting ObamaCare.
As Greg Guttfeld pointed out at the time, the racists over at MSNBC went out of their way to edit their coverage to make sure their views never, ever, found out the fellow was indeed, a black man. The MSNBC anchorette even goes so far as saying the man was white! An absolute lie.
Of course, MSNBC isn’t the only lying, worthless media outlet out there. John Nolte over at Andrew Breitbart’s Big Journalism was on Twitter and kept a running tab of all of the shenanigans going on with the media outlets and how they covered the media. The bad and the good. [mostly bad] Check it out here.
