If this is about diversity, will there also be an extreme right wing person speaking?

@ Insider

Not a chance! It you are right you are right. If you are left you are wrong and the acronym CNN is as wrong as it can be! Also include ABC, CBS, NBC and MSNBC. Did I leave any left network out?

Wonder how much of our tax money will be spent on this "event?"

What an embarrassment

Soledad has about as much credibility to talk about "diversity" as Ricardo "Tariq" Azziz has to talk about leadership.

The woman is white, black,

The woman is white, black, Latino, and I think Irish. She is very intelligent and always does a good story. Those of you who trash her can't have seen any of her investigative stories. Folks, life is not all about politics.
