MSNBC: The headlines say it all

A blog noted:

On MSNBC, Headlines Beneath The Live Coverage Included "SOME WORKING MOTHERS WORRY THAT PALIN IS TAKING ON TOO MUCH" And "SOME VOTERS CONCERNED IF PALIN, A MOTHER OF FIVE HAS TIME TO BE VP." "Two recent headlines underneath the talking heads at MSNBC:’SOME WORKING MOTHERS WORRY THAT PALIN IS TAKING ON TOO MUCH.’ Moments later, it changed to, ‘SOME VOTERS CONCERNED IF PALIN, A MOTHER OF FIVE HAS TIME TO BE VP.’ So good of them to express the concern in headline form." ("MSNBC Worries About Sarah Palin’s Time Management," National Review’s "Campaign Spot" Blog, Posted 9/2/08). Source of this paragraph here.

Posting a news headline that addresses sexism is not sexist.

Earlier this year I saw news articles saying "Black voters reluctant to beleive a Black candidate is electable." Another article read "Over fifteen percent of white primary voters in West Virginia say race a factor in thier support for Clinton."

Does that mean that MSNBC was "racist" because it was pointing it out? Or was it, rather, anti-racist, because it pointed out racism?
