MSNBC cuts minorities at GOP convention

MSNBC cuts minorities at GOP convention

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow

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 was watching MSNBC with my father. My father voted for Obama and is a liberal (he was in a car accident last week after renting a FIAT). He started rubbing my face in the fact that there were not enough minorities being represented. Little did I know that we were viewing an edited version of events.
