MSNBC commentators sneering at the lack of minorities lining up to buy Sarah Palin's book should start their quest for diversity a little closer to home, writes Michelle Malkin. Take a look at Chris Matthews and Norah O'Donnell, who complained about the "monochromatic" Palin crowds, and the MSNBC lineup in general and "you’ll need protection from the blinding white glare," Malkin writes.

MSNBC talking heads "have some nerve clucking about lack of racial diversity," Malkin writes, when by their own count, the network had the "whitest programming on cable TV" in a randomly selected period in 2007. "Palin-bashing racial bean-counters in monochromatic houses shouldn’t throw stones," Malkin concludes. (More MSNBC stories.)
