Today on NPR's Tell Me More, the guests were Andy Carvin, Greg Myre, Jimi Izrael, Arsalan Iftikhar, R. Clarke Cooper, Eric Deggans, John Brown, Felix Contreras and Jasmine Garsd.
We see today that they aren't serious at all.
But NPR is so suck-ass awful anyway. Take this crap "Lawmakers: Petraeus Backs White House On Benghazi" -- read what Petraeus said, it's not what the headline says.
As a Green, I just shake my head at the WHORING the press does for Democrats or Republicans. You can be sure if my party ever has national traction, NPR will whore for the Green Party as well.
The press cannot be trusted, they are whores.
We do not get the truth from them, we do not get information we need. We get Michele Martin offering blather with a bad attempt at Ghetto Girly when she speaks.
As a Black woman, I find her more and more offensive. She's an older woman, much older than me. Talk your education level, stop trying to sound 'street.' It's embarrassing.
Those are our Whitney blogger posts.
We love Whitney. Ironically, if the sexist attacks hadn't been made on the show, we might not have watched. We didn't watch when it came on. Nothing against the show, I hadn't even heard of it. (I'm not a big TV watcher.)
But then we all read Ava and C.I.'s "TV: The perverts still drool over Shirley Temple" and Marcia, Betty and I were talking. We could complain about the world or we could do our part to change it. Whitney presents women's lives. It's relatable. In ways other shows are not. So we blogged about every episode and called out attacks on the show. By the end of last season, the Sexist Pigs knew they'd be called out and they dropped their attacks.
But looking at the press this week, I see that they feel like they can get away with it, these men who think their own stories haven't been told enough on 90% of every TV show out there.
And please note, Whitney tells men's stories too. But if you have the nerve to treat things seriously that matter to women you will be attacked by the sexist pigs. And by women who want to fit in with them.
Ava and C.I. outlined it perfectly in their wonderful piece.
And I want to thank Marcia and Betty here for being Whitney bloggers. I don't know if I would have if it had just been me. But they helped me stay focused (and reminded me when the show was on -- I'm really not a TV watcher). And I had someone to talk about the show with and it really did become Betty, Marcia and me against the TV Pigs. It was a bonding experience. And it worked. Pigs stopped attacking the show and you could find a few women stepping in and publicly stating that the show was funny. With the pigs not attacking, there was a space created for the show to be appreciated.
I'm not a big TV watcher? Because I don't relate to most TV shows. I'm not a 'little woman' who does what some man tells her. I'm not the wife on most CBS sitcoms. Whitney tells my stories. I can relate to the show.
