Today on MSNBC, during a discussion about rancher Cliven Bundy’s ignorant and offensive comments about African-Americans, host Alex Wagner took a “one brush fits all” approach and showed a Venn diagram that supposedly outlines the makeup of the right side of the political sphere:

Well that pretty much settles things, MSNBC-style.

MSNBC sourced the graphic to an article at The Wire. The article quotes Bundy’s comments about race, and then makes those views representative of much of the right side of the aisle. And we thought it was bad to generalize.

Here’s a brief video featuring the Venn diagram from Wagner’s show:

The “real journalists” at MSNBC strike again.

Others weighed in with different versions. Is this what MSNBC was really trying to say?

Wagner wouldn’t have any objection to also showing these Venn diagrams of the Left and MSNBC, would she?
