CNN Should Kick Rick Santorum and His Racist Views to the Curb

 

April 28, 2021

CNN has a problem when it comes to Native Americans.

For a news media outlet that is often touted as being too liberal, CNN does not seem to get it right when it comes to the Indigenous peoples of this continent. In recent months CNN has had two notable blunders when it comes to how it refers to Native Americans.

When stratifying racial and ethnic groups in demographic comparisons, Native Americans are often referred to as "other." During its election night coverage in November 2020, CNN left out Native Americans in a voting graphic that distinguished between White, Latino, Black and Asian voters. We were, presumably, regulated to a category at the bottom of the screen called "Something Else."
