.@cnn I see you’re trying to pay off Soledad for ethically purging her… what are you going to do for her audience? washingtonpost.com/entertainment/…

Last month, blogger and Ace of Spades smacked around Roland Martin and the “pale heroes” at CNN for the network’s “too ethnic” cleansing of outgoing morning host Soledad O’Brien. As Special Snowflake Soledad prepares to take on a new (read: significantly diminished) role at CNN, Ace continues to needle the corrupt media with his Twitter troublemaking.

.@chucktodd @joenbc if anyone NOT in the media fired someone for having a “too ethnic” customer base, would you cover it?

.@chucktodd @joenbc Why does the media have special privileges no other industry does?

@nyt_jenpreston is the new York Times ever going to report on the Soledad ethnic purge or is there a rule against speaking ill of media?

@kellyo full NBC embargo on the Soldedad O’brien ethnic purge huh?

.@vanjones68 have you said anything about @cnn‘s ethnic purge of Soledad O’Brien?

Meanwhile, the Twitterverse is starting to speculate about #SoledadsNewCareer. The AP reports that with her new production company, O’Brien will “do what she wants to do most, confronting difficult topics and telling underreported stories.”

Some Twitter users suspect otherwise:

Those are some dim prospects. Keep ‘em coming, Twitter!
