Romneys “Happy to Have a Party When Black People Drown”

It appears to be the deep, deep thoughts of an ABC producer.

During live coverage of the Republican National Convention here in Tampa, an ABC News employee provided the perfect example of the pervasive anti-Republican bias Mitt Romney faces in his bid to unseat President Barack Obama.

In video broadcast Monday night by ABC over the internet, an ABC News employee can be heard claiming that GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his wife Ann are unconcerned about the fate of residents of the New Orleans area who are currently being hit by Hurricane Isaac.

“They aren’t concerned at all,” the person says on tape. “They are happy to have a party when black people drown.

In all fairness, let’s ask the President why the RNC cancelled ALL of Monday’s programming, while he didn’t miss a single fundraiser?

ths update: Well lookee here, boys: Via aelfheld in the comments, turns out the vocal unbiased press member was Yahoo! News Washington BUREAU CHIEF David Chalian.

Imagine that!

Aelf was also kind enough to set up a Fire That Partisan Hack via Yahoo!’s own consumer complaint pages. Feel free to register your displeasure.

I did. 🙂

    Well, they’re not supposed to just come out and say what they think – that violates the ‘objective’ ‘unbiased’ facade.
