CNN BLACKOUT

CNN, which often dedicates wall-to-wall coverage for any latest controversy from President Trump, virtually avoided covering Joe Biden's "you ain't black" remarks Friday morning that sparked backlash throughout the day.


The presumptive Democrat nominee sparked a firestorm on Friday during an interview with Charlamagne tha God on the radio show "The Breakfast Club" as he defended his record with the black community.

“I tell you if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” Biden said.

Fox News and MSNBC covered the dust-up throughout the day. ABC News, CBS News and NBC News all addressed the controversy on their evening programs.

However, CNN's lack of coverage throughout the day was called out by critics.

"Fascinating to watch how the left-leaning cable networks have covered Biden’s 'you ain’t black' comment. MSNBC has discussed it nearly every hour... CNN hasn’t mentioned it once," former CNN digital producer-turned-media critic Steve Krakauer tweeted.

George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley pointed out the "crickets" coming from CNN. In the afternoon, Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel called out the network for going hours without mentioning the controversy.

She later slammed the anti-Trump network for waiting until "12 hours" to mention Biden's "bigoted remarks," tweeting, "We all know that if a Republican made a similar comment, CNN would have reworked their entire day of programming to feature 9-person panels condemning it. The bias is unbelievable."

Alright, if you say so. I'm still voting for Biden. As for CNN not running the story all day, maybe they didn't think it was news worthy. Then again, maybe Trump should not have been referring to them as "fake news."

Basically, the man feels that you are supposed to vote for him. Yes, I have a problem with his statement. Because,  black people don't owe  "The Democratic Party" a damn thing.

Black people have been loyal to The Democratic Party for decades. But, they still treat us like a mistress.

You are entitled to your opinion. I  certainly believe Biden should not said what he said. However, between the Trumnp and Biden, the choice is crystal clear for me.  Biden all the way. 

Again, you are entitled to your opinion. However, between the Democratic party and the Republican party, the choice is crystal clear for me.

That's a canned superficial cliche that lacks substance in my opinion.

I've asked  you this question on prior occasions and have yet to receive a response.

What specifically would you like to see either party do for Black people?

And, black coons will always rush to depend their clear oppressive masters.

Whatever the suck y has to post from #foxnews...

'Scuse me wh(y)...

Whenever trump referred to countries with darker-skinned citizens as "s**t-hole" countries, where was your anger then?

Oh, I forgot...you agreed with him.  Now, you and your keyboard jockies are all mad at #Bidenhasmyvote and #CNN because of some made up caca because #Bidenhasmyvote dared mention "black"?

GTFOH!

I personally treat my mistress well - think Charles Kuralt - so I'm baffled by that statement...

You can ask all seventeen of my former mistress'- just dial 777-9311 to speak to anyone one of them...

But,...here's the thing, Wiregrass, share with us the link to ANY post of yours where you expressed ANY concern about something that #ErraticTrump said or did.

Yeah, it was dumb for Biden to say it, but you tell me:

How does it stack up IN YOUR OPINION to the many racist, dumbass things that the Liar-in-Chief has said.  pick a few and let us know.

Maybe YOU think - I believe YOU DO - that you are being neutral.  BUT YOU ARE NOT. 

You are not being fair or even-handed.

AT ALL.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.
