John Edward’s Affair and the Media Circus Surroundng It; Smoke Screen For Potential U.S. War Against Russia
How can it be that the biggest story on the news at the moment is about John Edwards and his affair?
John Edwards is not running for the Democratic nomination. He is not running as a Vice Presidential candidate. He is not campaigning for either Senators McCain or Obama. Why is the media running around like a chicken with its head cut off over a story that in no shape or form matters? It is simply because the American media, ran by Caucasian males, like to hear titillating illicit sex stories about one of their own. It is a sad hypocrisy about America in general. In public, the media and government claim to be against pornography and any sexual conduct outside of heterosexuality, when privately, these very acts are entertained and encouraged. The facts speak for themselves.
The real story is taking place in what was formerly the Soviet Union. Georgia, a province of Russia is being repeatedly bombed by Russia. Georgia, claiming independence, is under attack for its democracy. Georgia has been calling for the U.S to help them. So far and the media is always shaky with figures, more than 2,000 Georgians have perished in the bombing. If the U.S. DOES come to the aide of Georgia, it will result in the THIRD conflict that the U.S. will have a hand in, simultaneously.
Think of the tax dollars, the billions of dollars that will go overseas to finance this “war.” Where will the troop numbers come from? A draft, perhaps? Will a war be the propellant to McCain getting his foothold in the White House?
With those issues on the horizon, why isn’t the attack on Georgia taking prominence, center stage, instead of this ‘John Edwards Cheated on Sick Wife’ ridiculousness? Maybe this is being done purposely by the media to keep you and I in the dark about what is REALLY the story of the day.
FOX News refuses to let go of Rev. Jesse Jackson’s jugular!
Now, a FOX News insider confirms that Rev. Jesse Jackson did indeed use the “N” word in the midst of his tirade against Sen. Barack Obama last week. Saying that Obama “was telling “N” how to behave,” and how Obama “was talking down to Black People,” Jackson made these remarks during a break in taping, thinking that his mike was off. It wasn’t.
Jackson has since apologized for his “crude” remarks and faced the rebuke of his son, Jesse Jackson II. He has also faced the wrath of the very community he claims to love and support. So, when will this story die already?
When FOX News says so. One can only hope that Jackson, Sharpton, Farrakhan and any other self-serving public representative who would think that they are the mouth piece for the masses, think twice before accepting a turn in the hot seat at FOX News. So, be prepared. Even though FOX says they will not release the full audio of Jackson’s Obama rant, you can be assured that they will continue to feed the public bits and pieces of it until there is nothing left to disseminate!
On Tuesday, controversial radio talk show host Don Imus told his listeners that the statement he made on Monday, considered racist by some in the African American community, was generally misunderstood. Imus said that in his comments about the arrest and suspension of Adam “Pacman” Jones, he was trying to “make a sarcastic point about the unfair treatment of Blacks in the criminal justice system.” He further noted that the uproar caused by his efforts in defense of African Americans was “ridiculous.”
Upon reviewing the transcripts from Imus’ Monday broadcast, it is difficult to ascertain the validity of his explanation. However, shockingly, I am in total agreement with Imus when he said that this media storm surrounding his comments is “ridiculous.” Why? It comes down to simple common sense. Did we in the African American community believe that Don Imus had magically reformed his stereotypical racist attitude? Could we in the African American community been fool enough to suppose that after his suspect ‘apology’ six months ago to the young women of the Rutgers University basketball team, Don Imus had an epiphany of some kind?
Don Imus does not owe the African American community another half-baked apology. He did not need to clarify his comments either. Who in the African American community actually listens to a Don Imus broadcast? I thought most of us was laughing and listening to Tom Joyner, Steve Harvey and Michael Baisden? When you have these three on the radio dial, and soon Mo’Nique, who has the time or inclination to even want to listen to anyone else?
Besides, going after Dom Imus is like going fishing. Why would you knowingly bait and catch a small fish in a deep ocean? Rev. Al Sharpton can answer this question for me. Or maybe he can’t. You see, Don Imus is a small fish. Throw him back. The deep ocean is the media, mainly cable news; and the big fish we REALLY want to catch and fry is FOX News Network. But seeing how ‘friendly’ a relationship Rev. Al Sharpton has with FOX, it is no wonder why he would jump on the Don Imus bandwagon and not on the backs of FOX News. Just last week, you could find Rev. Sharpton on the “O’ Reilly Factor” explaining why he assumes the IRS is harassing him. Bill O’Reilly. Need I say more?
I say let Don Imus alone. Who cares that he, like a leopard, will never change his spots? We have ‘bigger fish to fry.’
