A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

The same old red herring: Today's Washington Post has an article on the journalists' Unity Convention in Washington, D.C. The convention is all about promoting diversity in newsrooms that is only skin deep. (Columnist Michelle Malkin offers her take on the event here.)

This paragraph was the one that, once again, really steamed me:


During last year's plagiarism scandal involving New York Times reporter Jayson Blair, who is black, minority reporters in general, and black reporters in particular, said they were reminded of how racially tense newsrooms can be. They noted that several white commentators focused on Blair's hiring through an affirmative-action program and suggested that such recruitment should stop, but did not mention race in subsequent scandals that led to the resignations of Times reporter Rick Bragg and USA Today reporter Jack Kelley, who are white.


Maybe the reason why they didn't mention race in the Kelley and Bragg scandals is because they weren't hired because they are white.

Comments:
Blatantly political groups are meeting at the Unity convention, which in fairness should be called "Unity Minus White People." They are being funded and fawned over by the media. In fairness, this should be reported to the consumers of journalism. Unfortunately, the establishment chickens are only suited to guarding the Fox house, waiting to pounce on Bill O'Reilly exhausts their capacities. --theagitatedintelligence@hotmail.com
