Hallelujah! BREAKING: CBC Chooses CNN Over Fox

I hope this becomes par for the course for Democrats...stay the hell away from Fox, they mean us NO GOOD!

Black online activists -- led by ColorOfChange.org -- partnered with Robert Greenwald's Fox Attacks to call on the CBC Institute to reject Fox as a partner for their presidential debates. A letter from Color Of Change to activists:

"Fox News is not a `fair and balanced' source of information or political debate, and it has repeatedly proven itself hostile to the interests of Black Americans... Fox on-air personalities and regular guests consistently marginalize Black leaders, culture, and institutions."

The efforts appear to have paid off. A new release from CNN says it "will partner with the Congressional Black Caucus Political Education and Leadership Institute (CBC Institute) to host a presidential debate among Democratic candidates." Read the full statement:

CNN Joins Congressional Black Caucus for Democratic Debate in South Carolina

CNN will partner with the Congressional Black Caucus Political Education and Leadership Institute (CBC Institute) to host a presidential debate among Democratic candidates in South Carolina on Jan. 24, 2008.

Some young "brothers" now man the noontime shows, but Rick Sanchez is growing into the role of Sunday anchor. He's been a real trouper the past few years to take on some daunting stories on location. Oh, right - he'd work out better for that other caucus, the one for Hispanics.
