On Thursday, we brought you the story of CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien and her contentious interview over Critical Race Theory. [Note: This was the interview in which one of O’Brien’s guests called Joel Pollak of Breitbart.com a racist. See Twitchy’s coverage here.] O‘Brien contends the controversial theory isn’t, well, controversial… But it appears O‘Brien’s viewers didn’t really agree: Monday, she had to tell people to “stop tweeting me” and declared “we have moved on people.”
(Related: The radical racial ideas of the prof. Obama raves about in new Harvard video.)
O’Brien hosted guest Prof. Dorothy Brown from Emory University to explain that Critical Race Theory is nothing more than a look at judicial decisions and race in America. She dismissed the counterarguments that say the theory “holds that civil rights laws are ineffective, that racial equality is impossible,“ because the legal system ”is white supremacist.”
O‘Brien didn’t include anyone on the segment to counter Prof. Brown and at the end declared the issue solved and dead.
So like a liberal to court controversy and not want to deal with the fallout. Go watch the video.
The Daily Caller’s Jim Treacher:
Today, rather than apologize to Joel Pollak and his wife for allowing one of her other guests to call him a racist, and rather than admit that she didn’t know what she was talking about and tried to win a debate by having an intern read a Wikipedia definition into her earpiece, she doubled down[.]
