CNN's Roland Martin Bashes NewsBusters in Twitter Chat About Racial Insults
A politician making dumb statements and then apologizing is like a wife beater giving her flowers after a fight. So forget the pain/bruises?@rolandsmartin I encourage anger at insensitivity, but why is it ignored in Dems and blown out of proportion with Repubs? Double standard@rolandsmartin The DNC defended Reid when he said O could only get elected by having "no negro dialect" and being "lightskinned."@rolandsmartin Do you honestly believe that McDonnel doesn't think slavery was bad privately? Really??@KatMcKinley so why didn't his dumb (expletive deleted) say this when he issued the initial statement? It's only after he got ripped.@rolandsmartin People make mistakes. Sometimes big ones. Wasn't Clinton's coffee remark a big one?
It kills me that libs like @rolandsmartin actually believes that we think Repubs can do no wrong. HA!@rolandsmartin You can't have it both ways. If going to be offended by insensitive remarks, it has to go both ways.@KatMcKinley I don't speak for Dems. I speak for me. I ripped Reid and Clinton.@KatMcKinley But the reality is you're a blogger for Newsbusters. And you NEVER hold the GOP accountable for anything. S who r u 2 question?@rolandsmartin What? That is completely untrue and judgmental. I can barely stand the GOP either. Don't avoid the question by insults@rolandsmartin I care more about issues than party. This is 1 of our problems. We lash out instead of having a discussion.I wanted honest input@rolandsmartin It's NOT true that Newsbusters does not hold the GOP accountable. Just not true.@rolandsmartin Newsbusters goes after news bias anyway.@KatMcKinley No, Newsbusters doesn't go after news bias. It goes after supposed bias ONLY against Republicans. It never chastises the right@rolandsmartin Please don't tell me that you are using the excuse "He did it, so it's ok for me to do it?"@KatMcKinley I'm making a point about a website that doesn't do what you yourself are criticizing. That's the point.@KatMcKinley Actually, you're dead wrong. I don't think Repubs think that. I specifically pointed out a site you write for.@rolandsmartin Newsbusters doesn't chastise right or left. It goes after bias against conservatives in the news.
@KatMcKinley and u can try to label me as a liberal, whatever. I don't fall into these ridiculous ideological boxes. My views vary.@KatMcKinley when a really dumb comment was made, your boy Matthew Balan refused to say a word about it. Danced around it furiously.*@rolandsmartin Who is Matthew Balan. Since he's "my boy" I should know him.@rolandsmartin ur getting away from the discussion. Pt being you can't condemn someone for a stupid remark re: blacks unless u condemn all@KatMcKinley YOU ARE WRONG. I condemned Reid and Clinton. Don't sit here and lie on me.@rolandsmartin You did? I'd love to see it. If so, I apologize'@rolandsmartin I went to ur blog & saw u on CNN on Reid. You completely defended him. Just as I thought. Link here.
