“Just a blogger” and #BlackConservativeForRomney Kira Davis and the Franklin Center’s Tabitha Hale were booted from MSNBC’s setup at the Democratic National Convention today over objections to their pro-Romney signs.

Hale says security cited their use of cameras as the reason for their ejection, despite the presence of cameras everywhere.

A local Fox News crew came to their aid.

Any comment from Chris Matthews, tireless champion of women and minorities? Is this what your network means by playing hardball?
