MSNBC Refuses to Cover Minority Speeches

There were some outstanding and energetic speakers at the RNC Convention on Tuesday.  But, if you were watching them on MSNBC you would have missed half the line-up.  The impressive speeches given by Mia Love, Ted Cruz, and Artur Davis were conveniently removed from MSNBC’s televised coverage.  Why?  They’re minorities.

So, Chris Matthews is not alone in his inability to see the world though anything other than a black and white prism, claiming basic subjects like food stamps is somehow akin to a dog whistle designed to get white people into a racist tizzy.  His employer, MSNBC, is also apparently hyper-focused on the color of people’s skin.

The Daily Caller noticed MSNBC’s blatantly spotty coverage,

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.

Throughout this convention, Matthews has accused the Republicans of playing dog-whistle racist politics while on scene in Tampa. It isn’t clear, however, if Matthews will hurl accusations of racism at Davis, Love or Cruz for speeches his network failed to broadcast.

The seeming contradiction between Chris Matthews’ outrage against perceived racism and the network’s actual racism makes perfect sense if you understand Statists. They care only about winning elections and they use minorities in whatever capacity they deem necessary to achieve that goal. It’s a form of racism much more deviant than the type they accuse the right of harboring.

Here’s the interview the Daily Caller cited.  Watch Chris Matthews’ deranged mind at work.

    Unfortunately Fox cut out during those same speeches. While I’m usually willing to believe the worst about MSNBC they can’t take the full blame for this unless you want to blame Fox as well.

    Note from Gateway Pundit Administrator: I see this is your first time ever commenting on Gateway Pundit. Thanks for taking the time to share your “concern”.

    Intentional discrimination by denying any and all minorities airtime on MSNBC?

    That, folks, is racism. Deliberate, conscious, premeditated racism.

    Just a preview of how totally effed up the debates will be.

    #1 John, don’t know what channel you were watching but I saw all the speeches in question on my Fox cable channel……. and they were great! No wonder the scums at MessNBC didn’t want to air them. It doesn’t fit into their deranged view of American life.

    Loved the voting fraud segment Madcow put on last night–“When NO documentation was need to register look at how many hundreds of thousands of Democrats got registered!!! Now that you have to show ID look at how few Democrats got registered!! But Republican numbers stay consistent from year to year regardless–its voter suppression!!! Loved the nifty graph, does anyone have a screenshot, it is priceless.

    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.

    MSNBC? So, that really means that only about 10,000 brain-dead democrats, who would never vote for a Republican, didn’t see the minority speakers. Still, it is a really pathetic display of water carrying for the DNC.

    Mmmm … I would use the word invidious rather than deviant …

    Hey, Chris, please disprove for us — using logic that addresses the facts, instead of ad hominem attacks — Sherriff Arpaio’s thoroughly established claim that the do-called birth certificate posted on the White House web site is a fraudulent forgery.

    If you can do that, you should be in line for a Pulitzer Prize.

    Somebody please tell me why Sheppard Smith isn’t getting his paycheck from MSNBC
    This guy is so incredibly full of himself, and it’s so obvious where his bread is really buttered. Weak half hearted attempt to appear “fair n balanced” I now turn that little spider monkey OFF when his stupid show comes on.

    Only racists and racebaiters watch MSNBC. If GP didn’t keep me aware of what goes on at MSLSD I and most others would have no idea.

  • GregInSeattle

    As the country’s demographics shift, we’ll need more Bobby Jindals, Ted Cruzs, Arthur Davises and Mia Loves. Too bad the MSM doesn’t want to show the R’s diversity.
