your liberal meadea/priorities [updated] [again] [and again] [and yet again]
just because they say it over and over and over again doesn't mean it's true
(the post title, not the link)
curious, on 'morning joe' (on msgop in the am) they have on a teevee, the upcoming guests, it's usually made up of white people (just like the hosts) and invariably men (full disclosure, i'm a white male), and if they do have someone of color on, it's usually to discuss a topic regarding race, when will they have someone of any ethnicity to discuss a non-race related topic, just asking
yesterday they had on tiki (ex-fox news co-host) barber as a guest host
then they get sara (what oath to the constitution ??) taylor, are they trying to drive away viewers ??

An Op-Ed Need for Diverse Voices

Sunday, May 25, 2008; Page B06
The Post's op-ed page is too male and too white. And there aren't a lot of youthful opinions, either.
I have nothing against older white men; I'm married to one. And the nation's power structure, often represented in Post op-eds, is white, male and at least middle-aged. But a 21st-century op-ed page needs more diversity...
The 2008 numbers as of Wednesday: 654 op-ed pieces -- 575 by men, 79 by women and about 80 by minorities...
Of 19 weekly or biweekly columnists, 17 are men...
Of the four monthly columnists, three are white men...
be sure to read about 'The 50 most influential US political pundits' here:
