Something struck me last night, as Ari Melber mentioned Joe Biden's speech at NN. Melber referred to "a liberal convention", but not by name. The shot of Biden included a portion of the backdrop that clipped the logo and "". If you didn't already know the full name, you might not figure it out from the way the logo was clipped by the camera angle.

I let it go by at the time.

Just now, Rev. Al showed a clip of Elizabeth Warren's speech at NN. Again, she was shown with the clipped logo. Then a different camera angle came up, which showed Warren against a different angle of the backdrop, with no logo visible whatsover. Rev. Al didn't mention where she was speaking, at all.

Am I seeing things, or is MSNBC deliberately masking what's going on in Detroit? Make no doubt, when they cover a Republican at one of their conventions, you know exactly where they are, visibly and by spoken words.

As I type this, Rev. Al is once again mentioning Detroit, in terms of the water protest. And limiting his remarks to exactly and only that topic.

Did Markos really piss off Phil Griffin that badly all those years ago?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
