Recently, Fox News had a discussion on race in America. For the uninitiated, this type of thing is called, 'holiday filler.' It is discussion (supposedly about issues) that doesn't really have any important news value. So, as part of their little on-air circus, Fox invited writer and socio-political activist, Jasmyne Cannick. This turned out to be a mistake. In fact, she bit the hand that provided her a platform by trashing it. Cannick accused Fox News of perpetuating racism.
Of course, when such a blatantly horrendous accusation is made, it's a given that many bottom-feeding media outlets will highlight it, and spin it as they wish, even though the spin may be inaccurate.http://blackamericaweb.com/2014/12/26/jasmyne-cann...
But, getting gratuitous face-time is one of the oldest tricks in the public relations book. One of the equally oldest tricks in the PR book is answering a question with a non-answer. In this case, when pressed by fill-in host, Eric Bolling, about just HOW his network facilitates racism, she only said, “You know exactly what I’m saying, Eric.”
No, Jasmyne, we DON'T know. And as a courtesy to our viewers, would you mind answering the question?!
At some media caught on.http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/12/23/social-... http://megynkelly.us/76546/watch-eric-bolling-stan... http://www.teaparty.org/see-social-commentator-res... http://www.ijreview.com/2014/12/222521-social-comm... http://www.ijreview.com/2014/12/222521-social-comm... http://trutube.tv/video/17442/Laura-Ingraham-puts-...
With this report, many more people will begin to see the truth. And while we're sure Ms Cannick probably firmly believes in her stances, you got to wonder if her perceived effectiveness is beginning to wane. Maybe she needs to talk to a more effective practitioner, like Al Sharpton.
