Fox Decides NOT To Broadcast The President’s Passionate Speech

ARTICLE FROM huffingtonpost.com (Click here for full story)

This morning President Obama gave a very passionate and heart felt speech about the TERRIBLE shootings at Newtown where little kids were shot down like in a western movie by a crazy man. You can tell the President meant business this morning.

He said “Shame on you” if you cannot support gun control here in America. I got my remote and before I  changed the channel I knew in my mind the Fox News would not be showing the President’s speech. Guess what readers? CNN was broadcasting the President’s speech, MSNBC was broadcasting the President’s speech, BUT FOX NEWS DID NOT BROADCAST THE PRESIDENT’S VERY IMPORTANT SPEECH! WHAT???

Instead a Fox News anchor was talking about the President’s so called falling ratings. THIS IS A FLAT OUT OUTRAGE ON THE PART OF FOX NEWS!! It again shows that Fox News led by the bigot Sean Hannity is in the bed with the Republican Party/Tea Party etc.

How can MSNBC and CNN realize the importance of the President’s emotional speech and the racist Fox News did not? THIS IS TERRIBLE readers. It proves for sure that Fox News is doing EVERYTHING TO MAKE THE PRESIDENT LOOK BAD. The President was giving a speech about kid’s getting killed at a school that were 6 or 7 years old! The President was giving a speech on gun violence EVERYWHERE in America and Fox News was blasting the President’s “falling ratings”!!! TERRIBLE TERRIBLE TERRIBLE!!

Fox News ratings have been falling big time. Yes there still ahead of MSNBC and CNN. But they are falling. You want to know why they are falling readers? Because of the STUPID actions like they did this morning by not broadcasting the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES IMPORTANT SPEECH. I wonder if this was President Romney if Fox News would have done the same?     Gordon Curvey

Melissa Harris-Perry Gets Her Own Program On MSNBC

Listen to the latest edition of “Music Inner City Radio” podcast hosted by Gordon Curvey. Produced 1-11-2012. Mixing music and urban sports plus exclusive interviews.

 

 

ARTICLE FROM mediaite.com (Full story click here)

Found out some great information today that I did not know but when I found out I was so happy! Professor Melissa Harris-Perry was given her own program on MSNBC starting Sunday Feb 4th.

The program which is not named right now will air at 7am Seattle time. Perry has done very well as a sub for other hosts on MSNBC. The ratings was good and the management at MSNBC decided hey let’s give her a program. This is great. Even though it is early on Sunday, I will be watching. Of course we can always go online to view a webcast of her show on-demand.

A HUGE shout-out needs to go out to the management of MSNBC for allowing African Americans in Rev Al Sharpton and now Proffessor Perry to have their own programs. It gives the nation views and opinions that was not heard before on broadcast and cable TV except for the Rev Jesse Jackson for a short time a few years ago. The program was not on the air very long.

Here is a question. What is CNN waiting for? They are not opening the doors to African Americans to have a program and instead gives a program to Erin Burnett with her show “Outfront”. It is time for CNN to offer a program to say Roland Martin or someone else.

The word is called diversity. MSNBC knows about this word. They also have Tamara Hall hosting news everyday too. Of course you see I am not even talking about Fox News. Why? Because it just ain’t going to happen on Fox News. Real talk. Not in my lifetime.

So a big shout out again goes out to the management of MSNBC for allowing Tamara Hall, Rev. Sharpton and now Professor Perry to host and have their own programs. It makes me very happy!!  Gordon Curvey

President Obama Fighting Against A Entire Network

ARTICLE FROM cnn.com (Full story click here)

Supporters of President Obama it is time to stand up. It is coming toward 2012 and it’s time to make your voices heard and support President Obama and his re-election.

Remember one thing. The right has one goal and one goal only. And that is to make the Prez a one term President and that is for sure.

Everything he is doing and has done since he has been in office is being challenged by the right. Everything readers. It has been a total respect of President Obama. It is a outrage!

I DO NOT agree with everything he has done since he has been in office. But that does not mean I am not a supporter of him. One thing for sure he is fighting against a ENTIRE network in Fox News.

Sean Hannity has made a point of blasting the President SINCE DAY ONE of his presidency. Every since the President and his family moved into the White House, Hannity and and others at Fox News have had one thing in mind and that is to bring President Barack Obama down.

Heck, the right has even talked negative about Michelle Obama and EVEN HIS KIDS!!! This is sad. Hannity refuses to say ANYTHING positive on the President. The same as Rush on radio.

Sorry to say even some at CNN and MSNBC are against the President. CNN reporter Gloria Borger is always talking negative about the President. And she never says President Obama it is always Obama or Barack Obama. Why is it some have problem calling the President, President Obama?

So I am going to do my small part as a supporter of President Obama and bring you the other side of the negativity of Fox News and the right. We have to stand up if you are a supporter of the President because 2012 is right around the corner.    Gordon Curvey

Are You Disappointed With The Programs On B.E.T?

ARTICLE FROM thegrio.com (Full story click here)

I have been waiting to say something on this topic for awhile and then I saw the above article in The Grio website so I said now is the time to say my views on Black Entertainment Network.

I have been very disappointed in the programming on B.E.T. for a long time. In my opinion there is to much videos and reality shows and older programs and not nearly enough news programing.

I remember when B.E.T. had a nightly news program at about 10pm Seattle time that I never missed. It was a very good program hosted by Jackie Reid. It had news and views from the African American point of view every night. Why the program was taken of was and is beyond me. That was just crazy in my opinion.

Their needs to be more news specials on B.E.T.  Much more. More primetime news shows maybe hosted by Ed Gordon and other B.E.T personalities. News on the programs of unemployment in the African American community, teen suicide, the drug and gang problems in our communities, the problems of students dropping out of school and on and on. This is not happening like it should on B.E.T.

I want B.E.T to be more like CNN. News, news and more news. You can come to local programs like my program “Music Inner City TV” for some music videos etc. But even with my show, I try to entertain and educate.

I hope B.E.T. President Debra Lee will see the light and do much more news programming and less videos and reality shows and older programs like Bernie Mac and shows like the Game and others.

I want more positive stories on for instance President Obama because as we know MSNBC and CNN and for sure Fox News does not do enough positive stories on our President and other politicians. Why not a “biography” type of program with profiles on Morgan Freeman or Halle Berry or even Rev Jesse Jackson or Denzel Washington etc.

This is just my opinion. I agree with the folks at the Grio. I hope and pray the B.E.T. will give us much more news and views from the African American community. A good way to do that is to bring back “The B.E.T Nightly News” right now!!   Gordon Curvey

“Music Inner City TV” is celebrating twenty years on the air. Thanks to those of you who have supported us thought the years.

And thanks to EVERY ONE for making “Music Inner City News Magazine” the #1 urban website on the Internet from the Northwest!!

Has Nicki Minaj Ripped Off Lil Kim Style?

ARTICLE FROM msnbc.com (Full story click here)

Here is question a question for you. Has Nicki Minaj stole or ripped off Lil Kim style? Has she used Lil Kim to build her own image?

Word is Lil Kim is upset and their is a new beef in hip-hop. But it is a new beef when it is lady vs lady. Do you feel Lil Kim should just chill out and just do her and put out good music and let Nicki Minaj music shine?

Minaj is for sure making a name for herself in the music game with her wild attire and her music. Just like Lil Kim has done.

And Minaj has a mouth on her just like Lil Kim. I just sit back and watch all the give and take between the two divas. It is very intersting.  The media is jumping all over this so-called beef between Kim and Nicki and what is really going on.

My opinion is I think Minaj has stole some of Lil Kim’s style and has used it for her benefit. And she has used it very very well. Her name is all over the place just like Lil Kim used to be. For Kim’s sake I hope she can make a “comeback” and have her name out their just like Minaj is now. Because truth be told, Lil Kim is the original. That is for sure.

Hs Minaj ripped off Lil Kim’s image and style? That is up to you to decide. I think she has. But if she did, she is riding all the way to the bank with it for sure.  Gordon Curvey

Jackson Upset At Lack Of Black Anchors At Night

ARTICLE FROM blackvoices.com (Full story click here)

Well it seems Rev. Jesse Jackson is upset at CNN as well as Fox News and MSNBC as well as NBC and CBS and ABC for not having African Americans on TV nighttime or prime time news as anchors. And if you at the point he trying to make, you have to agree.

CNN’s Soledad O’Brien is upset at Rev. Jackson for making this point. But what Ms. O’Brien has to realize is that what Rev. Jackson as well as Rev. Sharpton is talking about is one thing. There is zero African Americans on prime time news on national TV news in America. None. Soladad is a anchor on the morning news on CNN.

And what O’Brien is upset about with Rev. Jackson is Rev. Jackson saying O’Brien is “light skinned” and that their needs to be more “darker” skinned African Americans on primetime news as anchors.

What Rev. Jackson and others are saying is it seems guys like Don Lemon and T.J. Holmes are “light-skinned” brothas on CNN. Unlike Tony Harris. But Harris is on in the early afternoon. Holmes is on mainly on the weekends as is Lemon.

Rev. Jackson and Rev. Sharpton and others are saying where are the African American night time anchors? There is Anderson Cooper, Sean Hannity, Greta, O’Reilly, John King, Chris Matthews, and on and on. CNN just started a new program at night with zero African Americans. The fella who is taking Larry King’s place in January is not African American. The question is why is this going on.

I do not agree with Rev. Jackson and Rev. Jackson on every thing. But I agree with both of them on this point. There needs to be one or more African Americans on prime time night time news on cable TV. Remember their is none right now. This is not fair and not right.     Gordon Curvey

Democrats Take A Beating/Prez Has To Stay Strong

ARTICLE FROM yahoonews.com (Full story click here)

Well we all know that the Democrats got beat pretty bad in the elections on Nov 2nd. The right pick up plenty of seats in the House and Senate. That is a fact. But I am here to say President Obama you have to stay strong.

The President had a press conference today (Nov 3rd) and he looked sad and defeated. As question after question was fired his way about the Democrats taking a beating. But the Prez hung in there the best he could.

In my strong opinion, I saw the handwriting on the wall readers. You had the Tea Party riding all over the country blasting the President and his policies and also a ENTIRE network in Fox News lowering the boom on President Obama on EVERY PROGRAM. Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly, Greta, and on and on on Fox News. It is the network of the Republican Party and also the Tea Party.

Here is another point I want to make. Where is the right when people are in jail for wanting to kill the President? Where is their voices? Where is their voices when people try to shout down the President while he speaking? Where is the right speaking up on some of the insensitive actions of the  Tea Party members against our President? The right is silent.

The tea party does not have to pay for ads. The have a whole network on their side. That’s real talk folks. Fox News is on their side!!!

Also it is sad that their is zero African Americans on TV as anchors on night-time cable TV news in the U.S. None on MSNBC, none on Fox News, none on CNN. How come Don Lemon on CNN cannot be on prime time at night on TV during the weekday instead of being on only on the weekend? Why not Tony Harris on CNN at night? I will write more on this issue soon.

Why not Roland Martin at night time? This is just not fair folks.

So it is time for President Obama to roll up his sleeves and get to real big time work because the right is out to get him. Fox News is out to get him too. He has to be ready to take the heat. Even certain folks on CNN and MSNBC are turning on President Obama. But one thing is for sure, people like myself and millions others have the President’s back!!!

STAY STRONG PREZ!!!!    Gordon Curvey

Why Was Rick Sanchez Fired By CNN?

ARTICLE FROM dimewars.com (Full story click here)

Did you hear that CNN host Rick Sanchez of “Rick’s List” was fired the other day? He is no longer a host on CNN. He went on a radio show and called TV host Jon Stewart “a bigot” and also said “CNN and other networks are ran by Jewish people”

Sanchez also said that it is wrong for Jewish folks to call themselves “minorities” And that Stewart and others did not have the poor conditions he grew in.

Sanchez is a minority. He is a Cuban-American. Born in Cuba. And he came to America, grew up and made something of himself.

Rick Sanchez was the nearest thing to a minority that was on the air on CNN with his own weekday hosting gig on the station. And he always had African Americans and people of color like Roland Martin and others on his show on a regular basis to give their views on topics.

Yes he was wrong to blast the folks who were paying his salary. He was big time wrong on that issue but did he make a point about Jewish people thinking they are a minority?

What Sanchez was saying on the radio show was that a lot of white folks who are Jewish, call themselves “minorities” are not minorities.

I watched his program sometimes and truth be told I agreed with him on topics and I did not agree with him on topics. He put President Obama on blast a lot. But he also stood up for him too. And he took up for African Americans and people of color on many a topic.

I say Sanchez should not have been fired. Maybe the real reason he was fired was his ratings. Because Fox News and I think MSNBC was killing “Rick’s List” in the ratings.

You will see him again soon on cable TV. Mark my word. You will see him again.     Gordon Curvey

Why Does Rev Sharpton Go On Glenn Beck’s Program?

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

I just saw Rev. Al Sharpton on Fox News and the Glenn Beck program. I quickly said to myself very quickly why would Rev. Sharpton go on Beck’s program? Then again it seems Rev Sharpton is on everyone’s program. Is he trying to lead or is he trying to be a celebrity?

Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and Laura Ingraham and others are the reason their is so much hate against the left and so much hate against President Obama. GLENN BECK IS ONE OF THE LEADERS OF THE TEA PARTY FOR GOODNESS SAKE!!

It seems to me Rev Sharpton loves to jump on MSNBC, loves to jump on CNN and for some godly reason, loves to jump on Fox News.

Is it because he loves to be seen on national TV and be seen? What the heck is it? It kind of bothers me when I see Rev Sharpton over and over and over again on Fox News and CNN and MSNBC. But what bothers me the most is Rev Sharpton on Hannity’s show and Beck’s show.

Both of those fellas blast Rev Sharpton and Rev Jesse Jackson and of course President Obama at will when ever they can. So again, why would Rev Sharpton continue to go on their programs?

Beck and Hannity on a everyday basis call President Obama a “socialist” a “radical” and constantly talk about President Obama’s “radical” friends.

To me, I think Rev Sharpton loves to see himself on National TV with his very nice suits on his hair looking nice.

When I turn on the TV and see Rev. Sharpton posted up on Glenn Beck’s show knowing how he is treating our President and other people of color I have a problem. Remember Beck called President Obama “a racist”. I guess Rev Sharpton has forgot issues like this in order to be seen on national TV.

I respect Rev Sharpton for standing up for issues regarding people of color. I really do, but on this issue, I do not support him at all.

President Obama Donates All Of Nobel Peace Prize Money

ARTICLE FROM cbsnews.com (Full story click here)

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

A big shout out to President Obama for donating all of the $1.4 million prize money from his win of a Nobel Peace Prize to 10 different organizations. This is a great move on the President’s part.

Some folks, mainly people on the right say President Obama should not have received a Nobel Peace Prize and truth be told President Obama was a little shocked but the bottom line is he did get it. So folks need to stop hatin on the President.

People like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham and Glenn Beck and others on the right want to blast President Obama every chance they get on every topic. He cannot do anything right in their eyes. Nothing.

Heck, Fox News does not even shows Presidential press conferences held by President Obama when at the same time, MSNBC and CNN show it. What’s up with that readers? Did they treat former President George W. Bush that way?

Do you think Fox News and others said anything about President Obama donating all his prize money to children and youth organizations etc? No they did not. This is truly truly sad. Again good looking out Prez for you donating your prize money to different organizations. That is a very positive move on your part.
