Posted on 07/07/2011 10:25:35 AM PDT by Red Badger
In a press release issued this morning, the NAACP condemned 24-hour cable news channel CNN for its recently announced prime time news lineup, calling the lack of diversity in its collection of news anchors a glaring omission. The NAACP is deeply concerned with the lack of African American journalists in prime time news, both on cable and national news shows, NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous said in the statement. We have come to expect this from the likes of Fox News, but not other networks. While we understand that news is now a 24-hour cycle, most Americans get their news from the morning and evening prime time broadcasts. The new CNN news lineup, which was announced yesterday, features John King, Anderson Cooper, Erin Burnett and Piers Morgan. CNN did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The NAACPs Hollywood Bureau also announced its plans to meet with cable news presidents to address the issue. Hollywood Bureau Executive Director Vic Bulluk was not immediately available for comment.

Fox news has more black contributors (Juan Williams) than the entire sM, combined.
NAACP: Shove up your smelly Obama.
The diversity that is needed in the MSM is reporters that actually have a measurable IQ (and therefore, don’t believe anything a liberal has to say).
Just in case you missed it: Shove it up your smelly Obama.
And Harris Falkner. YUM!
Like so many on Fox, beauty and brains.
The closest thing CNN ever had was Juan Williams and they tossed him out.
I don’t understand this, actually.
I rarely turn on CNN (their sycophant lock-step over Obama and Dems makes me nauseous) but I often see black people on there.
The super Left mainstream media news? [shrug] They give the undesirable shifts to the black folks. The real prime shifts go to da white peoples. At least this seems to be the case in the Boston marketplace.
Oh, they meant reading the news.... never mind.
Was he 'beauty' or 'brains'?..................
BTW, I'll give a shiite what the NAACP says when they call for more diversity in the NBA...
I guess they have to make waves every now and then to keep the pressure on. Totally not necessary tho.
I have noticed more than once, that when flipping through the channels of the local TV stations, I will as often as not see nothing but Blacks. I mean 100% of the characters I see are Black.
Most of the times tho there will be token Whites. Those token Whites will be Ellen or some guy I never knew who he was, doing a talk show.
More of the same old WAAAAAAAGH!!! We’s so PITIFUL ‘cause we was born black. Why don’t YOU try to forget color?
>>Was he ‘beauty’ or ‘brains’?..................<<
“The NAACP is deeply concerned with the lack of African American journalists in prime time”
Now, just wait a minute! How come they don’t use the term “colored people”? Is there a bigger hypocrisy anywhere than an organization named, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, that gets upset if you refer to blacks as colored people?
Haven't you heard? NAACP now stands for National African American Communist People.......................
So, the leftist racer organization is complaining that one of the leftist “news” organization is not recruiting more racers.
When will the NAACP start allowing whites to join?
Yes, we must judge based on skin color, not the qualifications!
Hey NAACP, FU!
