4. Hmmm. It's nice to see a little diversity, but . . .

The absence of an AA viewpoint seems a glaring omission.

6. That does not look like America

They tried but still missed the mark by a wide margin.

7. Ok. Either I'm really old or they are all

incredibly young. Considering that America is drifting older every day you'd have thought they could have found at least one person over 50.

15. Everyone's invited to the party except African Americans.

CBS should 1) be ashamed; 2) should re-think itís hiring practices.

16. We're there AA who even applied?

I am looking at this and having a hard time believing racist behavior. There are women, people of asian, arabic, and Hispanic descent.

Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems weird.

17. Hiring for these positions is not limited to those who "apply"

There are hundreds, if not thousands of African-American journalists and producers who are qualified for and would jump at these jobs

I'm not sure why you're so quick to assume that the absence of African Americans is the result of no black people ""applying" or to dismiss the likelihood that racism - intentional, institutional or otherwise played a role.

And I have no doubt that if every one of those faces was black, people would have no trouble assuming that these were "affirmative action" hires and "reverse discrimination" played a part in excluding all of the white people.

18. Because I have hard time believing that they are open to ever race,

Gender, and religion but eschew AA.

It doesn't make sense to me, but who knows?
