    During live coverage of the Republican National Convention here in Tampa, an ABC News employee provided the perfect example of the pervasive anti-Republican bias Mitt Romney faces in his bid to unseat President Barack Obama.

    In video broadcast Monday night by ABC over the internet, an ABC News employee can be heard claiming that GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his wife Ann are unconcerned about the fate of residents of the New Orleans area who are currently being hit by Hurricane Isaac.

    “They aren’t concerned at all,” the person says on tape. “They are happy to have a party when black people drown.”

    That line elicits laughter from several employees listening in on the joke.

    From the audio, it appears the person was talking to an unknown individual named “John” who presumably was making additional jokes at the expense of Ann Romney although such jokes cannot be heard on the clip.



    The anti-Romney joke was made while the person, presumably an ABC News producer, was on an active microphone, apparently unaware that his/her quips against the former Massachusetts governor were being recorded and broadcast live.

    Unmentioned by the ABC News jokester is the fact that the Republican National Committee canceled the entirety of Monday's program or that President Obama did not cancel any of his regularly scheduled campaign fund-raising parties that night.
    No surprises here.

    If the foot eater truly believes that the Republicans don't care and are partying while people are drowning then how much worse it is that Obama is begging for money while people are dying?

    Exaggeration is all the left has. New Orleans isn't having a fairly routine (for New Orleans) hurricane. No. Black people are 'drowning'.

    John Kerry never appeared on Fox News. Later, after he lost the election, he said that that was a mistake, and that he should have appeared. I agree with him.
    Geraldo Rivera said just last week that he could not get an interview with Barack Obama.

    ABC News is barely on the register of effective reporting. People don't care what ABC says. For the most part they don't care what CNN reports, either. But that's all Barry has going for him.

    UPDATE: YAHOO News confirms: David Chalian "terminated effective immediately"

    Chalian was the nitwit who made the comment.
