Oh, hey, has anyone noticed how white #SXSW is?

You can always count on the hypocritical media outlets to report how overwhelmingly white gatherings of conservative are, while ignoring the overwhelming white complexion of every major liberal media institution and deified Democratic political machine.

See, for example, here, herehere, here, and here. For starters.

As we’ve been reporting, the hipster South by Southwest conference has been taking place all week in Austin, Texas. But we’ve yet to find any major national media publication or news station headlining the lack of racial diversity at SXSW. Nope, no massive, front-page photos or editorials decrying the racial imbalance of the attendees the way Tea Party gatherings were attacked relentlessly.

Fortunately, many Twitter users have resisted the urge to whitewash the truth about the failure of progressives of pallor to practice what they preach.

File this one away for reference when the media report on the Conservative Political Action Conference next weekend.
