On the first night of the Republican convention, MSNBC cut away whenever a minority took the stage. (Taking the usual liberal definition in which Asians don’t count as minorities.) NBC did the same on their web site, simply leaving those speakers off their “Tuesday night’s RNC speeches” page.
Coincidence? No. Certainly they didn’t pick the most noteworthy speeches, or they wouldn’t have left out Mia Love. And the likelihood that they would have randomly picked exactly those speeches to omit on the web site alone is 1 in 792 (or 1:C(5,12)). Include MSBNC’s on-air slate and the improbability becomes astronomical.
Clearly, NBC wanted to convey the impression of a party that is all white or Asian. Put another way, NBC based its choice of which speakers to feature on their color of their skin.
