On Wednesday, Twitchy reported that CNN nixed Soledad ‘Special Snowflake’ O’Brien’s show after CNN VP Bart Feder complained her audience was “too ethnic.” A “source close to the show” clarified what Feder meant:

To clarify, Feder’s issue with “Starting Point” was that the audience was too small and happened to be predominately African American. A source close to the show insists that the ethnicity of the audience was never the issue, it was the size. Feder in no way meant to imply that the audience was too ethnic.

Size matters … especially when your unit of measurement is “African American.” Ace sums up the denial as only he can.

Too small, too ethnic. You can see how close those words are to each other. They’re virtually homophones.

Read the whole thing, then enjoy Ace’s earlier tweets pressing CNN contributor Roland Martin to comment on the network’s “too ethnic” cleansing of Soledad.

You wouldn’t know those remarks. They’re from Canada.

Progressives of pallor have to stick together!

Stronger than all of us, Ace, stronger than all of us.

Chirp, chirp, chirp.

It’s the unbearable whiteness of being the left-wing media. Shhh.

Are muskets or tanks involved? If not, we’re guessing “no comment” from Piers.

Several of Ace’s followers got into the mix, but oh-so-shockingly, Roland refused to answer their questions and played the “I have more followers than you” card.

What kind of shots? Zingers like this:

Not everyone can be as influential as courageous warrior Roland Martin.

Er, Roland will get back to you on that, Ace. He’s waaaaaaay too busy fighting the “too ethnic,” er, “too small” cleansing at CNN.

A parting observation from Ace:

At no point did he ever contradict the premise of the question, to wit, that Soledad O’Brien was fired for having an audience that was “too ethnic.”

      I wonder if ace will stop tweeting so mercilessly now that he’s at the news website with the big orange square with the ‘B’ in it? Might be a conflict of interest…

      • Conservativesniper

        Jeez, I hope not. I think Mr. Breitbart would be happy with the way Ace so politely skewered the cowardice of Mr. Martin. I’d bet Andrew is smiling, and maybe even chuckling, at such a display which exposes the left wingers of which he was so fond of exposing himself.

    Ace needs to get a life. There are much bigger issues facing our country than the cancelation of starting point. You know, basic things like the 2nd Amendment, $16T in debt, a Muslim appeaser in office, and four dead diplomats just to name a few. Ace needs to grow up from trolling and be the patriot that I know he can be.

    • Fire and Adjust!

      You’re right, to an extent……….. however, Ace’s “trolling” has a larger point than just the cancellation of a show…….. it moves to show, and in fact challenge, the utter hypocrisy in the main stream media………… and THAT is an effort worth undertaking since their agenda has a LARGE influence on the populace

    • NachoCheese (D)

      You are missing the point. AceofSpades is highlighting the hypocrisy of the left. It was revealed yesterday that CNN decided her audience was “too ethnic”, later walked back and relabeled “too small”. Roland Martin has made a career out of opining on matters of race in America, but is surprisingly silent when the racism is displayed by the network he works for.

      • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

        And, if the too small rationalization were true, CNN would clean house.

      #Acepic. Yeah, there are lots of important issues, one being the MSM calling all things conservative, racist. So, it’s important to call out the true racists on the left. Bravo, Ace, bravo.

    • http://twitter.com/MuddleVanHeck MuddleVanHeck

      Ace is doing a wonderful job taking on Obama’s Media Palace Guards. That’s where the fight should be. We can vote the douchebags out of office, but first we must address the propaganda from the so-called “news” organizations. They’re far more destructive to our freedoms than any politician.

    • AdoEdem

      If you go to AoSHQ, Ace typically follows up his Twitter escapades with a good post analyzing leftist behavior, culture, and mindset. The broader picture here is not letting up on the Legacy Media, exposing their lies, double standards, and hypocrisy.

      Unfortunately, just one incident being exposed is not going to get through to people that the Legacy Media is completely untrustworthy, and they are the ones who control the narrative. All the things you cited are indeed important, but we won’t be able to do a thing as long as we have an unrestrained Legacy Media gleefully deceiving voters to hold onto their power. Too many people don’t even know that “assault weapon” is just leftist newspeak for “gun I can’t identify that looks scary”, and that ignorance is largely due to Legacy Media not only failing to educate, but actively misleading. We won’t get very far preserving our natural rights until people are better-educated, and that first means making them aware they are being lied to.

      Also, Ace can multitask and hit on all of these other points, too. He’s good like that.

      I won’t thumb you down because I think you will appreciate the experience!

    • JMW

      If you read AceofSpades you would know that Ace and his co bloggers and commenters cover the 2nd Amendment, the debt, the death of Stevens, etc etc… Ace understands that we are in a cultural battle with the left and need to use everything available…. which includes twitter… to attack the lefts hypocricy whereever you find it.

      Now go and do likewise.

    PROTIP:
    It’s not about “proving” anything to AceofSpades or anyone else Roland, it’s about your silence on the subject. Being that you have made a career of opining on matters of race in America, why the silence now?

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      I think his reasoning for silence is that currently the homosexuals are at the top of the deck of victimhood cards. Since it’s not another homosexual under fire right now, he sees no reason to chime in.

      When you have several victim cards to play, it’s only reasonable (to a Regressive) to play the best hand that you can. So with Roland we have Black (kind of) Homosexual (very) which in 2013 trumps Soledad with her Black(?) Female(?)

      • NachoCheese (D)

        I thought illegal alien latinos (said in my best Obamao accent) were the current minority victim group cause celebre this week…

        • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

          They would hold Joker status, as they wold probably drop out of sight if Obama gets his blanket amnesty. Homosexuals are the Queens of the deck, which in the Regressive world, out plays the King.

      Totally cool calling him “son” too. It’s not racist if a professional racist does it.

  • NachoCheese (D)

    Meh…guess Roland is the blowhard I always took him for. He either lacks the courage of his convictions or is simply a garden variety hypocrite, you decide.

    • Fire and Adjust!

      Why can’t he be both?

      • NachoCheese (D)

        Good point.

      • TocksNedlog

        Unfortunately, he does have the courage of most of his convictions.

        And most of his convictions are wrong.

    It would also appear that Roland has scrubbed his Twitter feed of any evidence of the conversation (at least I could not find any reference to the back and forth).
