Is this kind of talk ok for a News organization?

"Kanye West is what happens when negroes don't read"
"Kanye West is the White House's token negro"

The host seemed to think these comments by the guests were funny.

Added: Same host said Kanye West's visit to the White House was a "minstel show"

    Another reason I don’t watch any news on television. They’re all propaganda machines for their respective party of choice and are stooping to lower levels.

    They do all have their bias....online also. We must do our homework.

    Exactly. It’s becoming more difficult. We as people have a habit of sticking with sources who we agree with and tell us what we want to hear.

    I can remember a time, and not so long ago either, when such comments would never have been appropriate for any news agency.   When reporting the news was what they were about instead of making it.  Now seems their main conflicts are over whether to demonize the "White House" or laugh at it.   They would not want to treat our president  with any respect because then their readers might think that he is human.  Too bad.

    Ay that disagrees with them is evil or stupid. That group all feel that if you are Black then vote Democrat. Black unemployment lowest ever is having some see there is a better way than being dependent on government.  He is an American and doing his own thinking and we all are entitled to that no matter where they try to group us.

    Nope. That kind of talk isn't ok for any news organization or for anyone else for that matter. :)

    Just seen the same host referred to Kanye West's visit to the White House as a "minstral show".  I will add that to my question.
