The Cheerios tweet from @msnbc was dumb, offensive and we've taken it down. That's not who we are at msnbc.

Of course nobody with an ounce of common sense was buying that claptrap:

This stuff seems to happen daily at the All Race All the Time network:

Wolffe doesn’t mention who the person was who did it, naturally. Transparency!

Of course now that the offensive tweet has disappeared, the original story it linked to is still there on their website. They’re trying to stir up controversy where none exists:
The breakfast cereal’s new Super Bowl ad features the same fictional biracial family that sparked a backlash last year.
Titled “Gracie”–after six-year-old actress Grace Colbert, who stars as the daughter of an interracial couple–the ad presents another scene of family life.
Forget the Seahawks and the Broncos: there may be another outcry, but most viewers are likely to declare this ad the Super Bowl winner.
Weird, but we can recall any “controversy” from last year, but then again, we don’t live life obsessed with race. And it the story isn’t obnoxious enough, check out the oh-so-subtle tags accompanying this nonsense:
Equality, Media, Race and Society
Weird, but when my family eats Cheerios, none of the leftist obsessions come to mind.
Meanwhile, it’s worth noting this hugely offensive tweet still remains on their site 10 weeks after the fact, even after the loathsome cretin martin Bashir was fired:
