Associated Press writer Nancy Benac plays the “diversity” card with a piece tallying up how many women and minorities service in power positions for the various presidential candidates. The hit piece slamming Republicans for not promoting enough non-white people is titled “Democrats seek diversity in advisers:”

When the leading Republican presidential candidates sit down with their top advisers, those with a seat at the table don’t exactly look like America, to use the phrase popularized by former President Clinton.

The 2008 presidential race is notable for the presence of a woman and a black among the leading Democratic candidates. But progress is much slower when it comes to diversifying the ranks of top decision-makers within the various campaigns, especially those of the Republicans.

The campaigns of the top GOP candidates — Mitt Romney, John McCain, Rudy Giuliani — couldn’t point to any key advisers who are black, although there are some women in the top tier. Not unsurprisingly, those campaigns with the most women and minorities among top staff members are Democrats Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama.

“Not unsurprisingly,” eh? Fair and balanced at the AP, as always.

Perhaps Ms. Benac–journalistic concern troll for “diversity”–should start counting the racial and ethnic beans at her own organization. Take a look at the AP Board of Directors. Not unsurprisingly, it’s “Do as we say, not as we do” with the liberal media elite. I’m adding photos to help with the visuals here. I’m sure Ms. Benac will get on the case:

Let’s tally up so far…Update. Here’s your final tally:

22 members of the AP Board of Directors.

19 out of 22 are men.

0 out of 22 are “women of color.”

1 out of 22 is a “man of color.”

Ahem: Perhaps journalists who live in non-”diverse” houses…
