CNN's Don Lemon shreds MSNBC for making fun of Romney black grandson photo



quote:

CNN host Don Lemon is not giving MSNBC a pass for mocking Mitt Romney’s family photo, which featured his adopted black grandson. MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry and her panel apparently thought the black child being pictured alongside the white family was hysterical.

Lemon argued that there would have been plenty of outrage if Fox News hosts had put on the exact same segment and even slammed MSNBC as an echo chamber that doesn’t allow any kind of diversity in opinion.

“If someone on Fox [said], ‘one of these things is not like the other,’ to a black baby in a white family, what do you think would happen?” Lemon asked Marc Lamont Hill.


quote:

Marc Lamont Hill argued that the MSNBC panel didn’t make fun the baby, but rather Romney and the Republican Party. He said it wasn’t the best joke, but also wasn’t “inappropriate.”


quote:

Lemon then set his sights on MSNBC as a network, saying former Mitt Romney adviser Stuart Stevens had a point when he called the network “a club where the smug go to exchange hateful opinions and reassure each other it’s acceptable.”

Mark Lamont Hill is a puddinhead. He doesn't have the sense God gave a cabbage.

re: CNN's Don Lemon shreds MSNBC for making fun of Romney black grandson photo


that female pundit is so annoying

"they weren't making fun of the kid...they were making fun of the Republican party"

if that's the standard, then



"same standard with a different context"

what does it mean?

I don't think Don Lemon "shredded" anything or anybody. He just asked some tough questions that needed to be asked. Good god, there was a time in this country when we expected this from our journalists.

They should be shredded.

Not even Rachel Maddow or Sean Hannity would put a family photo in front of a panel for the sole purpose of mocking mixed race family.

That's never appropriate.

Wasn't the gal who made the offending comments actually adopted and raised by a big Mormon family? Not saying that excuses anything, but if anyone is "allowed" to make remarks, it seems like it would be her.

It's Melissa Harris Perry and MSNBC....it's all about race. That doesn't make childish chants and mocking a white family for having adopted a black child okay.

The CNN host is 100% correct. Mocking a white family for adopting a black child would never be acceptable on FoxNews. That would never be swept under the rug.

Good for Don Lemon. He will discover that it's pointless to try and talk sense with those left-wing kooks, though.

yes, but that's basically like pulling the "i have black friends" card (they mocked that exact behavior pattern with Paula Dean in the very show, just fyi)

if you watch the clip from CNN, you'll see the mindset. different rules for different people/groups, based on context

Good to see that my fellow Baker Highschool Grad and one my brothers best friends back then,spoke out against those hypocrites on MSNBC. Good to see you do that Don.

I don't know about that - it sounds like she literally was in a comparable situation to the baby. The "black friends" card is different.

What do you mean? Paul Deen isn't black.

I have no doubt that if it had been on Foxnews (even with the exact same cast of characters) the outrage would have come from the left. But it seems to me like really the one person who could have made these jokes made them. I have a problem with the hypocrisy but not the actual comments.

I agree that it was the perfect description of MSNBC.

Any other network would have never let Bashir's comments make the cut and certainly wouldn't allow a host to pull up a photo just so entire panel of hateful, smug a-holes mock a bi-racial family.

If that was "shredding" it was quite a gentle sort.

Hill is one pathetic human being.

Hill was doing everything he can to justify his own hypocrisy.

It's pathetic....but then again, he was the opposing point of view on that show. He had to dig in.
