HuffPo Headline: 'FINALLY! A Show Without All Those Old White Guys Getting In The Way'

Can you imagine the outrage if a news organization published a headline reading "FINALLY! A Show Without All Those Old Black Guys Getting In The Way?"

I guess the folks at the Huffington Post didn't consider that when they put the following headline atop their media page:

FINALLY! A Show Without All Those Old White Guys Getting In The Way

The associated article applauded PBS for no longer having any white males anchoring the NewsHour.

Whilst celebrating "diversity," media editor Jack Mirkinson - who appears from his picture to be a white male! - didn't catch the irony that he was applauding one demographic group being eschewed by a publicly-funded news organization.

I guess diversity in 2013 means old white guys needn't apply.
