    The Great (Late!) Brown Hope

    by Danielle Belton

    People will listen to a black person sing (Beyonce), watch a black person dunk a ball (LeBron), a black person act (Will Smith) and a black person be president (the O-Man), but when it comes to your average, shouty, loud, political gabfest, TV Land is often as white as pure Colombian Cocaine. Not surprising considering things only recently got all “gendered” up with additions like MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, CNN’s Campbell Brown and FOX News’ Greta Van Sustern (the original!). Heaven’s to Besty, it would be too much to ask for post-racial America to give some minority a shot at screaming at people for an hour.

    Not that a network or two hasn’t tried. CNN gave Roland Martin a shot during Brown’s pregnancy break, but that went unmercifully bad. Ratings continued to be low (and still are low with Brown back), and Martin was politely push back down to second fiddle pundit status. CNN also gave comedian D.L. Hughley a show.

    I’m still trying to bleach that one from my mind.

    The problem seems to be that the networks (or in this case – network, re: CNN) seem to be stuck either playing it safe or swinging for the fences an never any in-between. Everyone else, even the so-called “Liberal” network MSNBC seem anemic to the notion of minority show hosts. The closest they often come is using former MTV/NPR reporter Alison Stewart as a seat-filler for Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow when they go on vacation.

    Since no one asked me, I’m just going to tell the networks who the top six minorities are who would make “good TV” and can shout just as loud as the competition. Get out your pens and pencils and get your lawyers to start mulling over their contracts … now. READ THE REST HERE


    Party On, but No Tweets


    THE invitation, by e-mail, was clear.

    “You are cordially invited to Protocols NYC, an off the record, no tweeting, no blogging, no photos, salon.”

    What did they expect guests to do with themselves?

    Protocols, held every two weeks since September in a small private penthouse in Murray Hill, is hosted by five Manhattan news media types who each invite two guests. The idea, according to a host, Michael Malice, an author and blogger, is to let invitees talk fearlessly in the present.

    “We are fighting against this whole idea that everything people do has to be constantly chronicled,” Mr. Malice said. “People think that every thought they have, every experience – if it is not captured it is lost.”

    In an era, when a stray gripe about your boss can land you on an industry blog, when waking up hung over can frantically send you to Facebook to untag your name from photos of the previous night’s frosting-wrestling contest, when shots of you in unflattering jeans become part of your permanent Google search results, there are signs that some are tired of living their lives on the Web.

    Uncovering The Experience of Being “Black In America” 

    CNN's Soledad O'Brien {From CNN.com}

    CNN's Soledad O'Brien {From CNN.com}

    CNN and their special correspondent Soledad O’Brien are at it again.

    For the second straight summer CNN is all about the issues affecting black America with “Black In America 2” .

    It’s the latest in debt look by the mainstream media at black America.

    There was The Washington Post’s “Being A Black Man“, NBC News’s “Where They Stand” on African American women, and PBS’s “The Masculinity Project” on black masculinity.

    CNN’s second try is also a response to some of the criticism they faced by focusing some of the issues which affect the black community from poverty, to educational inequity, to growing HIV and AIDS rates, and a staggering incarceration rate.

    This time however aside from only focusing on the perceived negatives, CNN wants to know whose trying to right the wrongs, and what they’re doing to create change.

    CNN’s Soledad O’Brien reports the in depth series.

    The critiques from journalists are now coming I think the piece by The Baltimore Sun’s David Zurawik gave an overview of the project while the piece by The St. Petersburg Times’ Eric Deegans stated why the effort might give some pause.

    Tonight CNN has a town hall at 7 p.m. and then a two hour premier of part one of the documentary beginning at 9 p.m.

    You can catch the remainder of the event at 8 p.m. on Thursday night.

    For a preview check out this review.

    Will Your Website Be Relevant in 2011? 

    At New York’s Internet Week panel on “The Impact of Social Media on Culture and the Economy,” an interesting question was raised: “Are websites going to matter in a couple years?”

    With Facebook and Twitter quickly becoming web user’s dish of choice, it makes you wonder if rapid-character-limited-dialogue will replace niche sites like mobile phones did landlines.

    The panelist, including moderator Rick Sanchez from CNN, responded with answers for worried website owners. Here are their thoughts (with my two cents added):

    • Benjamin Palmer (Co-Founder & CEO, The Barbarian Group): “If [your website] doesn’t connect to other websites, the answer is no.” My Two Cents: Facebook Connect.
    • Rick Sanchez (CNN anchor): “If your website is an island you need to socialize more. You have to be apart of the conversation.” My Two Cents: Go to other sites and join their conversations — and this doesn’t mean only leaving comments to tell people to go to your site. That’s called spam.
    • Chris Cunningham (CEO & Founder, appssavvy): “The spirit of transparency and honesty is much more interesting than being talked at.” My Two Cents: What makes you an expert? Share your personal experiences on your site to make people give a damn about what you’re preaching about. After that, go twitter about it!

    Is CNN Really The Black Network? 

    CNN is sometimes called the black network.

    They have five black anchors, two black White House correspondents, and one black Pentagon correspondent. Those numbers exclude other black correspondents who work on beats as varied as politics, business, and entertainment.

    The network is also working on a highly touted documentary Black In America 2 which will air this July again taking what’s being called an unparalleled look at the black experience in America.

    However as HuffPost notes CNN and MSNBC are both being beat hands down by Fox News.

    Could CNN’s struggles to come up in the ratings be linked to the fact that they don’t have a black presence in their primetime lineup (with the exception of Roland Martin recently filling in for Campbell Brown during her maternity leave)?
