Look Behind the Reporting ...

Hello. As a PR Expert, it can be difficult to watch the media and see how credible journalists can become pawns to corporation and report the mandates of the establishment. What do I mean? The reporting of the Sean Bell verdict on Friday where all 3 police officers were acquitted. You could hear the disappointment in the journalists when they reported that no violence broke out and the crowd was civil. Of course, the crowd was civil, what did you expect, Black folks to go crazy and hurt people. That's not what we do ...

Rev. Jeremiah Wright speaking at the Detroit NAACP event and at the National Press Club this AM. Rev.Wright was honest, provocative, insightful and charismatic. I am watching how CNN is playing the speech and calling him defiant. What??? Why is he defiant, because he does not agree with the media and their inaccurate reporting, looped soundbite to trick people from hearing the entire sermon in question.

How I love the media. We must understand the press and when used effectively, it can be a tool of empowerment.

Rev. Jeremiah Wright is my hero. He showed the media that "hey, clip this clip." Baaaam!

What I find ironic and made me straight shut off CNN probably for the rest of the week, is today's Question, "Have we heard too much from Rev. Wright?", or something like that.

I was like, are you kidding me?! Yea, we heard him too much when you decided to run the strategically extracted portion of A sermon over, and over, and over, and over, and over......

But, now that the man decides to no longer lie dead and defend himself....he is talking too much?!

Whatever!!!!! The hyprocrisy continues.....
