CNN Contributor Roland S. Martin Isn't Buying CNN's Defenses Regardng "Ethnic" Cleansing

As @johnekdahl noted earlier, Bart Feder now says he didn't mean too ethnic when he said too ethnic.

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.

He just meant too small. Too small, too ethnic. You can see how close those words are to each other. They're virtually homophones.*

But, thanks to some Twitter troublemaking, in which I congratulated Roland S. Martin numerous times for his prudence in saying nothing about the affair and just taking the check, nice and quiet, I can report that Roland S. Martin, at least, does not believe Feder's claims.

When I asked him why he wasn't saying anything about it, he responded:

"If you only knew!"

And then, thereafter, reasserted how much he's saying about the ethnic cleansing. Behind the scenes, I imagine.

He also seems to be hinting that he's got a Plan B, if he needs it.

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'd really like to print this all up for you but Twitchy usually does this for me...


* Homophones are gay phones, such as the iPhone, or Android, or Galaxy. Pretty much all of them, actually. Oddly enough, the only straight phone I know of is the Nokia Cock-N-Go. They should probably change the name.
