Baratunde, why is there no news on the delegates throwing nuts at two african american cnn camerawomen and heard to say "this is how we feed animals." We're disturbed to get this news on BBC and not on NPR.

So, Mr. Thurston is a leftist partisan who is anxious to challenge delegates on various points. May we presume that WNYC will be sending an equally partisan conservative to cover the Democratic convention?

Pandering to white racists with coded language has been a staple of the GOP for years.
