BIG EDDIE Sets The Record Straight: Can You Hear Me Now, Suits?

Hopefully this report by Big Eddie on racism in the Republican Party will give MSNBC's news division the necessary backbone to report racism on the stump no matter how "connected" the candidate(s) may be, and to call them out on it. Thomas Roberts did the right thing and, if anything, news anchors and reporters need to be more diligent, not less, about reporting racism and bigotry, whether it's a racial slur, or gender or religious discrimination. Molly-coddling Republican bigotry for the sake of access or future considerations may be popular in the corporate boardroom, but it isn't news. Truth is the only news standard that matters. Thumbs up, Big Eddie!
