Once again, lowering the bar

Every time we take a heart-hearted vow to stop reporting out on media bias, they do something so astounding and so unhinged from any sense of decency, we feel compelled to wade back into the cesspool.

Forget Chris Christie, Ann Romney, Mia Love or Artur Davis. The story of the Republican National Convention is becoming not the folks on stage but the people reporting on them.

Yahoo News Chief David Chalian got hot mic'ed and wound up disgracing himself during an ABC News livecast:


"They are happy to have a party while black people (in New Orleans) are drowning"

The laughing afterwards is a very nice touch, dontcha think?

In what sort of sick, twisted and demented reality does this guy exist that he would utter something so spiteful and clueless? Oh, yeah. That's right. This horse's ass is a member of the bubble-wrapped, insular, group-think collective known as the American mainstream media, aka the hallelujah chorus for the statist ruling class of this country. What a sicko. And what an absolute indictment of that aforementioned pack of soulless jackals.

He has since been let go by ABC/Yahoo. Good riddance.

Before he gets picked up by MSNBC, however, to cover the Democratic National Convention, we're curious if he will offer up similar trenchant observations should any other Act of God befall the Gulf Coast next week. Short of that, I'm sure he has a rational explanation for why the President is campaigning in Virginia today while New Orleans is getting hammered.

And speaking of MSNBC:

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.

Will MSNBC conveniently manage not to show Governor Luis Fortuno’s speech tomorrow (Wednesday night) as well?

Obviously, MSNBC will go to any and all lengths to make you think that the Republican Party is as lily-white as, well, as lily-white as MSNBC's line-up of talking heads.

While playing "spot-the-Negro" amongst the delegates on the floor of the RNC may be a fun way to pass the time for the liberal-Left, they may have a point.

Below is a shot of the convention floor just yesterday:

Oops. Our bad. Rather a picture of the Obama re-election headquarters in Chicago just a few months ago.

one might even say the MSM is segregating the speakers.

You mean someone with a pulse actually bothered to tune into MSNBC to note what they were covering?

Sarah, I would only know about MSNBC because of conservative websites. We probably give MSNBC too much credit.

drozz, one could say that now wouldn't one?
