Del. Comstock Calls MSNBC the Way She Sees It

Yesterday while speaking on behalf of the Romney Campaign, Virginia's own Barbara Comstock made a bold stand and pointed out hypocrisy where she saw it. While discussing the Lilly Ledbetter Act, Ms. Comstock pointed out that MSNBC itself does not pay its female employees equally.  What's more, Andrea Mitchell agreed on air that this was a factual statement.

Since MSNBC does not even pretend to be an objective media source, pointing out their inequal practices is a particularly poignant point when heard over their squawking and attacks on Governor Romney. Womens' equality is a very serious issue facing America, and MSNBC should not be able to simply ignore its own duplicity for political gain.

In an article done for Mediaite describing the issue, MSNBC tweets their outrage back but unsurprisingly avoids actually answering the question of equal pay for its female employees.
