Liz makes an important point;

Does anyone think that either one of these jokers, Northam or Herring, would be accorded any courtesy by the media if they were Republicans? No. There would be special theme songs on cable and network news, there would be special graphics, there would be people interviewing every person that ever went to school with these blackfacers. The media would be parked outside their residences, following relatives around, going through trash. There would be confrontations by angry activists captured on video. Think of the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing as a paradigm. Why aren’t we seeing this?

I assume the question is rhetorical because I don’t think there’s anybody on the planet with a brain cell functioning that doesn’t understand why we’re not seeing it.

However, as Reynolds pointed out earlier, the media is waiting to spring into action on any hint a Republican in Virginia doing this… And the double standard will be there for all to see.

Of course, they haven’t found such, yet.
