Annual atheists convention is free for everyone, except heterosexual white men

He did not get in free...or did he?

The Secular Coalition for America’s annual Lobby Day and Secular Summit is being held in Washington, DC this Thursday and Friday. Five members of Congress (all Democrats) are scheduled to speak: Senator Sheldon Whitehouse of RI, Congressman Rush Holt of NJ, Congresswoman Barbara Lee of CA, Congressman Robert Scott of VA, and Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren of CA.

The Daily Caller article about this convention contained this interesting paragraph:

While the listed cost of attending the event is $99, admission is free to students, minorities, women and members of the gay and lesbian community, according to the site.

Translation: It's free for everyone except heterosexual white men (who aren't students). If you're a white guy who doesn't have a student ID on you, it looks like you're either going to have to cough up 99 dollars, or else offer the doorman a HJ.

Five sitting members of Congress are speaking at an event that openly discriminates against heterosexual white men, and so far as I can tell, no one in the establishment media has made mention of this.

Imagine if a conservative group held a convention that was free to everyone except blacks, women, and homosexuals. Imagine further that five sitting Republican Congressmen were scheduled to speak there. Do you suppose that this might, maybe, possibly be mentioned on, say, CNNMSNBCCBSABCNBCPBSNPRNEWYORKTIMESWASHINGTONPOSTPOLITICOHUFFINGTONPOST?

What media bias?
