There’s no question that MSNBC omitted every single speech delivered by a minority speaker at the Republican National Convention Tuesday night.
Mia Love. Artur Davis. Ted Cruz. Brian Sandoval. Luce’ Vela Fortuño.
All noticeably glossed over.
None of these fine speakers were highlighted by the network recently famous for watching miserable hack Chris Matthews practically foam at the mouth in an effort to label the Republicans racist, and for Toure claiming that Romney is involved in the “niggerization” of President Obama.
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.
The only question is, did the network really intentionally cut away from minority speeches in an attempt to further paint the Republican party as a group of racist, white, old men? It’s certainly plausible, is it not?
By the way, here is Utah congressional candidate Mia Love, absolutely lighting it up and living up to her conservative rock star image last night at the RNC.
