ONE OF THE REPUBLICAN talking points that is being repeated over and over again at the Republican National Convention is that the media are a bunch of elitists.
I love it. Don't they read the papers? Media job layoffs are announced almost daily. Elitists? The average starting salary for a 2008 grad who actually finds work is $32,000. If you can find a job, that is.
Is the media showing their elitism by pointing out that there are only 36 African American delegates attending the convention? Is the media showing their bias for Obama by reporting that only two percent of the 1087 delegates are black? Is the media creating a story out of nothing rather than simply reporting what is happening in the speeches?
