    Get to know your GOP Media's Black Face Cable Corporate Mouthpieces
    Advertisements [?]Recognize them for what they are; highly paid Media Whores specifically made more prominent due to the racial dynamics in this contest.

    Often seen on MSNBC - writes for the WAPO - Has changed the frames on his eyeglasses, as he was tired of being known as Black Pointdexter.

    often seen on CNN lately - Tara Wall, the deputy editorial page editor of The Washington Times and a total fearless Biotch recently brought on the scene specifically for these elections.

    MSNBC paid commentator Joe Watkins - Talks out of the side of his mouth in more ways than one!

    Juan Williams for Fox News - Long time tool that we realize could always be worse.

    Harold Ford as seen on MSNBC - Pretends to defend Obama, but this DLC leader appears to hold nothing more than complete contempt for our nominee. His slams are usually done under radar.

    Other Category- Media Tools who are simply attempting to make a living and will say whatever they have been handed-As far as they can see it, they simply don't know what they do:

    Don Lemon is young, good looking and ambitious, and will do whatever it takes. As a newsreader, he is better than some, but he will still toe the line to keep his job.

    Soledad O'Brien, who finally admitted that she was bi-racial recently(a previously well kept secret), after being handed the coup of letting us know what goes on in the Black community per CNN-

    Suzanne Malveaux, recently demoted and basically replaced with Soledad O'brien. She is now only seen as an afterthought. She may have said something someone didn't like, or maybe not. The point is that she is currently a rarity on CNN these days.

    Tamron Hall, relatively new to MSNBC and replaces the curly head who was given her own show before she was made to disappear(I forgot her name, please refresh my memory)

    9. It helps the cable producers keep their hands clean.
    Some might call these the "house negroes". They will do the job, so the overseers don't have to.

    (PS. As a Black person, I stand by this thread, LOL! )
    And if this were a conservative saying this about a liberal DU would be up in arms. As it is most simply agree and say things like "You rock FrenchieCat!" sick sick sick

    18. What an embarrassing thread for DU.
    Seriously,"house negros"? Do you suppose maybe black people can span the political spectrum like white people do? How would you feel if freepers referred to Donna Brazille as the "house negro"?

    22. I'm Black and this is how I see it.
    Edited on Sun Aug-03-08 05:54 PM by FrenchieCat
    and Black people spanning the political spectrum is not the point......
    Corporate media mouthpieces is the issue.

    When they actively shill against Barack Obama it is particularily hurtful to me, because they wouldn't be seen on television if it wasn't for those fighting racial justice.
    In otherwords, I find them as culpable as their counterparts in the world of Media whores, and they will not escape my wrath simply because they are Black as I am an equal opportunity critic of the media. Don't think I haven't started threads like this before on the media, even if in those, race was not the common denominator, but sole propagandizing was....because I have.
    Can I call any liberal black person who I don't agree with a "house ******" because they say something that is "particularily hurtful" to me? Or if I can't because I'm not black can a conservative who also happens to be black say it?
    they will not escape my wrath simply because they are Black
    I see...that justifies being a racist.

    43. 80-90% of Blacks in America are Democrats
    Yet most of the black pundits we see on television are GOP tools. Why is that?

    Black people span the political spectrum, but the majority of the ones on TV shill for the GOP and slam Obama. That certainly isn't representative of the AA community in the US.

    The MSM does it because they feel that a black person slamming Obama will be more effective than a white person. That's why we see so many black GOP shills on TV.
    "GOP tools" is simply a biased opinion. Perhaps we see more people on TV who are conservative and Black because Conservatives give them a chance. They aren't racist.

    Considering that 80-90% of Blacks are liberal it would seem to indicate that liberals, including liberal media ARE RACIST. Give lip service but "we wouldn't want those Blacks to be pundits FOR our party". Just like they give lip service but then rarely are any positions occupied by blacks in Democrat administrations.

    47. And that is racist. That is people looking at other people
    based on skin color.
    There's no way around it. I'm trying to find a way around it, since I don't want to believe that such ignorance could exist in 2008, but there's just no getting around it.
    Oh the irony. Isn't this what this thread is all about. Hating others because they are conservative and Black....you know....skin color.

    20. It doesn't appear that Frenchie thinks it's a coincidence,
    and she's usually on the mark. I think it's disgusting in that it puts too much emphasis on race; it's practically racist in itself. By this I mean that Obama should be evaluated for his qualifications, character, and judgment as a person, not as a half African American.

    But then, I'm an optimist who always tends to think that people should learn a little faster than they seem capable of learning.
    Typical....liberals making race a big part of a campaign and then blaming conservatives for it.

    LOL So now having pundits who are conservative and Black is racist.....because it somehow puts emphasis on race. LOL

    50. So every black person on TV is a corporate whore?
    I understand being annoyed by the black commentators that say things that seem to go against the interest of the black community, but why go on a diatribe about the anchors? This kind of inflammatory post is truly embarassing for DU and doesn't contribute to any constructive political discourse.

    In the eyes of the Democrats, attacking someone's stances on important issues is racist if they are black. But using racial slurs against someone is not racist if they are Conservative.

    It's very simple, really.

    Prove it. Who has called anybody either of these names? In what context?

    If I'm wrong I will publicly apologize to you for disbelieving you and calling you a LIAR!

    Eyelids is just yanking your chain. There's a great article on posters who are doing "sociological experiments," go for the jugular, and don't tell you who they are:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2008/08/03/ma...agewanted=1&hp


    (Psst...They're called "trolls")


    In the late 1980s, Internet users adopted the word “troll” to denote someone who intentionally disrupts online communities. Early trolling was relatively innocuous, taking place inside of small, single-topic Usenet groups. The trolls employed what the M.I.T. professor Judith Donath calls a “pseudo-nave” tactic, asking stupid questions and seeing who would rise to the bait. The game was to find out who would see through this stereotypical newbie behavior, and who would fall for it. As one guide to trolldom puts it, “If you don’t fall for the joke, you get to be in on it.”

    Today the Internet is much more than esoteric discussion forums. It is a mass medium for defining who we are to ourselves and to others. Teenagers groom their MySpace profiles as intensely as their hair; escapists clock 50-hour weeks in virtual worlds, accumulating gold for their online avatars. Anyone seeking work or love can expect to be Googled. As our emotional investment in the Internet has grown, the stakes for trolling — for provoking strangers online — have risen. Trolling has evolved from ironic solo skit to vicious group hunt....

    Jason Fortuny might be the closest thing this movement of anonymous provocateurs has to a spokesman. Thirty-two years old, he works “typical Clark Kent I.T.” freelance jobs — Web design, programming — but his passion is trolling, “pushing peoples’ buttons.” Fortuny frames his acts of trolling as “experiments,” sociological inquiries into human behavior. In the fall of 2006, he posted a hoax ad on Craigslist, posing as a woman seeking a “str8 brutal dom muscular male.” More than 100 men responded. Fortuny posted their names, pictures, e-mail and phone numbers to his blog, dubbing the expos “the Craigslist Experiment.” This made Fortuny the most prominent Internet villain in America until November 2007, when his fame was eclipsed by the Megan Meier MySpace suicide. Meier, a 13-year-old Missouri girl, hanged herself with a belt after receiving cruel messages from a boy she’d been flirting with on MySpace. The boy was not a real boy, investigators say, but the fictional creation of Lori Drew, the mother of one of Megan’s former friends. Drew later said she hoped to find out whether Megan was gossiping about her daughter. The story — respectable suburban wife uses Internet to torment teenage girl — was a media sensation.

    Fortuny’s Craigslist Experiment deprived its subjects of more than just privacy. Two of them, he says, lost their jobs, and at least one, for a time, lost his girlfriend. Another has filed an invasion-of-privacy lawsuit against Fortuny in an Illinois court. After receiving death threats, Fortuny meticulously scrubbed his real address and phone number from the Internet. “Anyone who knows who and where you are is a security hole,” he told me. “I own a gun. I have an escape route. If someone comes, I’m ready.”....

    **Rare Troll profanity alert**

    Being that at the old CU, you could not even type the word "******", I find that unlikely. The word "******", if I remember correctly, appeared as "n*****" or "n****r" on the old CU, much the same way that "****" was not allowed. In fact, I don't even think you could type a word that even resembled "******". I once tried to use the word "niggardly" in a sentence, and got "n******ly" when I posted it and had to redo my post.

    As to whether or not Sonnabend has ever referred to you as a monkey, I don't know. Can you show us some examples? If I didn't know better, I'd say you were baiting.
