NAACP: White-washed media never selects Black moderators for Presidential debates

Your Black World

 

     We may have a Black President, but there won’t be any Black journalists grilling President Obama or Mitt Romney when the debates roll around. In an op- ed, NAACP…President Benjamin Jealous made his disappointment with the panel of all white moderators known.

     The lack of diversity among this year’s debate moderators is representative of the overall lack of diversity in news media. Whether it’s as primetime news anchors, debate moderators, or commentators on the influential Sunday morning political talk shows, people of color – and African Americans specifically – are strikingly underrepresented” wrote Jealous.
