Lemon slams MSNBC for Romney joke

CNN host Don Lemon on Monday slammed his MSNBC competitors during a heated debate about the network poking fun at Mitt Romney's black grandson.

Lemon took aim at MSNBC after Melissa Harris-Perry's panel, while showing a Romney family photo with the black grandson, joked that "one of these things is not like the other," and that the photo represented the diversity of the Republican Party.

"It's a bunch of people on the left who all agree with each other, and there's no diversity of opinion," Lemon said of MSNBC. "And they're saying mean, smug things about people who may disagree with them."

Lemon suggested there would be more outrage if a white Fox News panel made similar jokes about the black grandson.

Analyst Marc Lamont Hill said that was a false equivalent, but Republican Ana Navarro agreed with Lemon and said, by now, civil rights activist Jesse Jackson would already be protesting.
