MSNBC’s Republican Convention Coverage Perpetuates The Myth
August 29, 2012 | Tags: 2012 Election, republican
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.
