In the previous video three white kids were hired by ABC to destroy a car in broad daylight. The experiment was to see what type of reaction it would cause by strangers walking by. When it was 3 white kids no one did anything for the exception of a couple of people, but the called the cops on 2 black people sleeping in a nearby car while the white kids were destroying a car.
This video shows when it is 3 black kids destroying a car then the results are different.
Opposition to the Stop Online Piracy Act, or SOPA, has reached a boiling point. Millions of activists, hundreds of startups, social media sites like Tumblr, Reddit and Twitter and even big companies like Google, Yahoo! and eBay have joined with Free Press and other Internet advocacy groups against it.
This Web-censorship bill could destroy free speech on the Internet. Yet this bill — and the backlash against it — have received virtually no coverage from major television news outlets. According to a recent study by Media Matters for America, the blackout has been complete, with ABC, CBS, Fox News, MSNBC and NBC devoting zero time to the issue during their evening newscasts.
This is what happens when the interests of big business get in the way of the need to inform the public and protect free speech. As it turns out, the owners of ABC (Disney), CBS (CBS Corp.), Fox News (News Corp.), MSNBC (Comcast) and NBC (Comcast) are all supporters of the bill. Please take action today and demand that the news directors of ABC, CBS, Fox News, MSNBC and NBC end the SOPA blackout.
ESPN has dropped Hank Williams Jr. from opening Monday Night Football tonight after Williams controversial comments today about President Obama. Says ESPN, in a statement: “While Hank Williams Jr. is not an ESPN employee, we recognize he is closely linked to our company through the opening to Monday Night Football. We are extremely disappointed with his comments, and as a result have decided to pull the open from tonight’s telecast.”
Williams, perhaps best known for his “are you ready for some football?” lead-in to ESPN’s Monday Night Football, Monday compared this summer’s so-called golf summit between Obama and House Speaker John Boehner as “one of the biggest political mistakes ever.”
As Williams put it on Fox News’ Fox & Friends: “It would be like Hitler playing golf with (Israeli leader) Benjamin Netanyahu.”
When asked on Fox to explain his analogy, Williams said Obama and Vice-President Biden are “the enemy.” (more…)
Gil Noble of "Like It Is"
Two months after he suffered a severe stroke, the family of WABC/Ch. 7 legend says Gil Noble will no longer be able to host the long-running public affairs show “Like It Is.” Noble’s loved ones, along with his attorney, told WABC/Ch. 7 general manager David Davis last week that Noble would not return to the show. “They have made the difficult decision that Gil can no longer continue as host of ‘Like It Is,’” Davis wrote in an e-mail to his staff. “I said I understood, and after so many years of serving the community and hosting such an historic program, Gil deserves the opportunity to completely concentrate on his recovery.”
Davis said Noble, 79, continues to recuperate and “according to his family, is making progress.” (more…)
Paid to misinform us
When Katie Couric’s five-year, $65 million contract with CBS News expired earlier this year, one of the reported reasons that the network elected to part company with its nightly news anchor was that Couric simply had become too expensive to keep. Her “Evening News” replacement, Scott Pelley, is said to be earning less than $5 million per year.
Meanwhile, some of Couric’s other colleagues in the television news business appear to be doing just fine.
According to TV Guide’s upcoming salary issue, Matt Lauer’s new contract with NBC earns him $17 million a year--a well-deserved figure, given the exotic bird hazards that Lauer has to face on the “Today” show set. Brian Williams, host of NBC’s “Nightly News,” earns $13 million annually–$1 million more than ABC’s “World News” host Diane Sawyer. (more…)
