MSNBC’s Republican Convention Coverage Perpetuates The Myth

Need an example of the left-controlled media helping to write the national political narrative that the Republican party lacks diversity?

Here’s one from the Republican National Convention. As the Daily Caller points out, during their coverage of the convention, MSNBC decided to skip speeches from:

Artur Davis — a 44-year-old black male that changed his party affiliation from Democrat to Republican in 2012. Davis served in the House of Representatives for Alabama from 2003 to 2011. He voted against Obama-care twice. He holds no office but is considering re-entering politics.

Mia Love — a 37-year-old black female currently serving as mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah. Love is also the 2012 Republican nominee in Utah’s 4th congressional district for the U.S. House of Representatives.

Ted Cruz — a 42-year-old Latino male that recently won the 2012 Republican nomination in a runoff against Lt. Governor David Dewhurst. He collected 57% of the vote.

Interesting that MSNBC didn’t cover the speeches from these under 50-years-old, male and female Republican minorities, isn’t it? Clearly this was an intentional decision to help perpetuate the tall-tale that Republicans are old, white, rigid and racist.

I consider myself a typical American. I value my family, friends and personal integrity. I enjoy some sports and a cold beer on a hot day. OK, several. I'll put some money on a pony now and then, too. I feel that America, as outlined by the Constitution, represents the greatest concept of government that humanity has conceived. However, this sound-bite based, PC, half-truth environment that our leaders, celebrities, unions and special interest groups have fostered is a fallacy and a farce. It is mocking those that gave their lives for this country, insulting the citizenry and ripping this country apart. I question government's intent on all levels and doubt its' competency with all enterprises. I believe small government is good government, I just can't decide whether it should be small or infinitesimal. Drop a line at imcitizen@imcitizen.net
