I return to Newsbusters!! (crickets chirping)

My response to the Newsbusters story that--horrors of horrors--a Black-oriented cable channel has chosen to cover the Democratic National Convention, but not the Republican one. (Gee, wonder why?)

Here's my response:

This isn't unprecedented. The GOP arranged for the 1996 Republican National Convention to be covered on the Family Channel.

The Republican party is taking a do-it-yourself approach to televising its convention in San Diego next month. GOP TV, the party's in-house TV arm, will cover the four-day convention (Aug. 12-16) and air the proceedings in prime time over the The Family Channel, a cable network controlled by evangelist and former Republican presidential candidate Pat Robertson.

The DNC received no such coverage on the Family Channel.
