"Meanwhile, I am eagerly awaiting a correction on this from Mr. Blow:
A New York Times/CBS News poll released on Wednesday found that only 1
percent of Tea Party supporters are black and only 1 percent are
Hispanic. It’s almost all white.
It's almost all white and he has the pictures to prove it. Ooops, my bad - that was a link to the NY Times Board of Directors, which seems to be utterly free of any Hispanic, black or Asian presence.
Anyway, the NY Times poll reported the Tea Party as 89% white, which makes them a lot more diverse than the Times Board. And contra Mr. Blow, the Tea Party is reported to be 3% Hispanics. That won't change his point (as if anything would) but it would be nice to see the Times present the correct figures."
