Racist Black TV Network Will Only Show DNC Convention

African American-themed cable network TV One will be showing the DNC Convention because Barack Obama is the candidate this year.
However, they won’t be showing the Republican convention.
Live Feed and Drudge reported:
Given Barack Obama’s historic run for the Oval Office, African American-themed cable network TV One plans to break from its usual entertainment programming to provide extensive coverage of the Democratic National Convention in August.
“This is a huge deal for TV One as it is for the African American community,” said Johnathan Rodgers, president and CEO of TV One, a channel in about 40 million homes. “African Americans have fallen in love with Barack Obama’s family, his candidacy … we will be covering the democratic convention all the time.”
But John McCain shouldn’t expect the same treatment. The network doesn’t plan any coverage of the Republican convention.
“We are not a news organization,” said Rodgers, speaking at the opening session of the semi-annual Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills. “We are a television network designed to celebrate African American achievement.”
“My audience is 93% black,” Rogers added. “I serve my audience.”
You’ve got to love the incredible double standard.
