MSNBC's Chris Hayes Plans Rigid Guest Quotas: 'We Already Have Too Many White Men'
NewsBusters ^

Posted on 03/28/2013 10:08:35 PM PDT by chessplayer

Chris Hayes isn’t just trying to bring his “pretend the cameras aren’t there” chatter to prime time. He’s going to try his weekend guest-selection formula of “quotas. Hard quotas.” So reports the Columbia Journalism Review. It gives a "more inclusive" feel to his new show's title, "All In."

"We just would look at the board and say, ‘We already have too many white men. We can’t have more.’ Really, that was it,” Hayes said to Ann Friedman. “Always, constantly just counting, Monitoring the diversity of the guests along gender lines, and along race and ethnicity lines.”

It sounds like the boy might be a racist. Maybe he could line up a few NBA teams.

Why doesn’t Hayes do the honorable thing and give his job to a deserving non-white?

The real tragedy of advanced liberalism is that it renders satire impossible.

That’s very good. And right on.

These days it’s sometimes difficult to determine if some things are satire.

Hope Chris won’t mind if I make my viewing decisions along “people who have something interesting to say” lines.

So what is Opie going to talk about with his guests of color? Is he going to apologize a lot and say how he wishes he wasn’t a pasty faced twit?

But it renders statements like these. Perfection!

I predict that within 3 months the ratings will be such that MSNBC’ll be begging Ed Schultz to come back.

I think they should have quotas for viewers too. Their viewership too white too.

It's the outfit whose ratings make the Oprah Winfrey Network look good.

He was up just before Melissa Harris Perry (Al Sharton’s daughter) on Weekend Mornings and his guest panel always looked very white compared to hers as she ran a program near 100% focused on minority victim themes: abortion, discrimination, voting suppression, gay rights, .... and Hayes show was more on politics analysis from a liberal view.

Lily-white MSNBC, with their token yes-boy Al Sharpton, wanting more non-white guests? To do what? Lynch them?

Funny, coming from a white man show host when he got a job over a minority show host...
