Yahoo! News Editor Fired Over ‘Black People Drowning’ Comment

The Washington Bureau Chief for Yahoo! News was fired today for his hateful comment directed at Republicans, a comment that was made live during coverage of the Republican National Convention.  Not realizing he was close to a hot mic, David Chalian made the following slur which brought amused laughter from his colleagues:

“They are happy to have a party with black people drowning.”

A spokesperson for Yahoo! had this to say concerning Mr. Chalian:

David Chalian’s statement was inappropriate and does not represent the views of Yahoo!. He has been terminated effective immediately. We have already reached out to the Romney campaign, and we apologize to Mitt Romney, his staff, their supporters and anyone who was offended.  Fox News

Mr. Chalian’s illustrious career has included a sojourn at PBS where he served as Political Director for the PBS NewsHour.  Well, that seems to explain a lot—the incestuous progressive fraternity of media retreads has much to do with the outrageous Left-wing bias that permeates what passes for news today.

    the left is all about playing the race card, they live for it, they need it to win if you would just wake up and realize they need you, NO THEY USE YOU! (people of color) to keep voting them into office they keep you dependent so they can keep the power. you need to vote for somone that would help impove your situation and allowing you to help yourselves insted of keeping their bootes on your neck to keep you dependent on the goverment theydo this so you keep voting them into office, wake up you are better than this, you are a strong people, stop playing the victom and vote for somone that will help you help yourself

    • White Lefties see themselves as the standard bearers for the welfare of Blacks, Latinos, Women, Gays, etc. They don’t see themselves as the condescending manipulators that they really are. If they weren’t using minorities for their own ends they wouldn’t be attacking Black conservatives so viciously, if at all. Why would they care if there are Black conservatives? They might not agree with their politics but why go after them with a vengeance? Because conservative minorities break the dependency stereotype–they tear the fabric of the victim coalition that serves as the power base for the Democrat/Progressive establishment.

      If Blacks don’t need special help, if Blacks don’t need special handouts to grease the political wheels, then Blacks don’t need White progressives.
