NBCNews.com Debut Video: No Schultz, Sharpton

Hmmmm.

I came across this from NBCNEWS.com this morning. A 60 --second video introducing their new name, now that the divorce from Microsoft has been finalized. It was posted three days ago, clearly without a lot of fanfare.

Who is in this video?

Brian Williams, Matt Lauer, David Gregory, Ann Curry, Chuck Todd, Ed Schultz, Al Sharpton and…

Oops! Sorry! Actually, there are a string of NBC personalities showcased -- but several appear to be deliberately left out. Who?

You guessed it.

There is not a clue in this video of the existence of Ed Schultz, Al Sharpton, Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, or Lawrence O'Donnell. The word "politics" flashes by at the speed of light… but those NBC News political types are mysteriously nowhere to be seen.

Nowhere.

Perhaps they are only allowed in the back of the NBC bus -- where there are no cameras to advertise their presence?

Wake up Reverend Al! Discrimination is afoot at NBCNews.com!
