Lookie Der! It's The Snob In The Daily Beast Again!

This time it's me complaining about the lack of diversity in cable news! (You already got a preview of this rant on my own site.) But this time I get to elaborate on why it is considered OK for Tucker Carlson to fail at only Lord knows how many cable TV shows, but my dear Uncle Rolly Rolls, Roland Martin, WHO I LOVE, gets the whole "He doesn't deserve another shot at the majors because he couldn't save Campbell Brown's crappy show." That's some bollocks, son! Why Roland Martin is just as good (if not infinitely better) than ol' Tucker and he's twice as chippy as ANY screaming white guy on TV! DIVERSITY! Go get some! Don't be "scurred" cable newsers! (The Daily Beast)

Whoa. Some of the comments on The Daily Beast would drive me to drink if I actually thought those people had any power. The more comments I read from who are intelligence-intolerant, the less faith I have in this crazy place we live. BUT, great work, once again, Danielle!

The truth is that some folks like that DO have power, consider our Congressmen. My colleagues, who make important decisions affecting folks' daily life think like those on the DB.

the only that scares CNN is crappy ass ratings. diversity won't automatically give you good ratings.

the election of obama might have been the peak for blacks. but it's only downhill from here.
