“PEOPLE POWER” TAKEN TO THE ULTIMATE LEVEL OF EMPOWERMENT
Never has a social movement required so little to achieve so much for so many.
TURNING YOUR FACEBOOK PAGES INTO
A SOURCE FOR PEOPLE POWER
Even if you only have four, forty or four hundred Facebook friends you can make your page a source of power by sharing this pre-launch Indiegogo fund raising campaign with your friends. Our goal is 15,000 supporters to sign up with your email addresses to be notified once we have 15,000 supporters ready to join this historic endeavor. We’re looking for $20 from each person times 15,000, which totals the $300,000 we require to produce our CPA authored multimedia business plan. Most of the funds are to produce the sample television news day pilot, which is the centerpiece of the business plan.The uniqueness of the concept is what makes the television news day pilot necessary to dispel all speculation and show exactly what this all inclusive national cable news television network looks like.
We’re launching a 24/7 all-inclusive national cable news television network and 24/7 on-line news magazine giving African Americans national news representation for the first time in history. All-inclusive means we are not limiting or marginalizing ourselves by being a black news organization about black people. We are going to compete with the other major news organizations covering the same national and international news with the distinct competitive advantage of including what they have been omitting, which is the interest and concerns of African Americans and its relative impact on society.
Perhaps, what’s even more at stake is the perspective and mentality we are introducing by example to African Americans. With this endeavor, we are showing black Americans there is no reason we can’t be the leading news media operation in America. News is about the dissemination of information, which is a matter of choice and selection. “The Big Cover-Up” video shows in real time how the mainstream news media decides what to report and how they manipulate the news, particularly as it relates to African Americans.\
This is far more than just a good idea. We have produced a video showing how critical it is for us to have our own national news media operation, the ability to impose accountability where it has never been and how news media exposure works as a deterrent. “The Big Cover Up”video is exhibit “A” showing a classic incident of the news media knowingly covering up police misconduct in a case-involving race.
Black Americans have always conceded the national news media arena to white America, which is understandable but unacceptable particularly since we have exposed the mainstream news media’s tradition and practice of deferring to law enforcement in race matters. We hasten to add, while this police and press complicity does not happen in every instant, it’s often enough to show it’s as real a tradition in the news media as the code of silence is in law enforcement. For those who never imagined black Americans having our own national news media operation, it shows that we can actually have an all inclusive leading national news media operation America has needed and has been waiting for.
For a race that excels in so many areas, the news media arena is the one key power base, with life and death consequences, in which we have yet to establish our own national news media presence and representation. More important, this allows us to impose accountability and address the race and social justice problem that has defied a solution up until now. By having our own national news media operation we no longer have to demonstrate for news media attention as our only option to attempt to bring about change.
However, the funding logic and strategy doesn’t stop with the $20 “People Power” concept. Rather than counting on the Warren Buffet and Bill and Melinda Gates Billionaire Giving Pledge Fund, for the $200 million needed to launch the next level. Once we produce the pilot, which will be as compelling as “The Big Cover Up,” video, we will circulate it and the multimedia business plan to our Indiegogo funding supporters. The next stage is to use the same social media “people power” formula and offer our Indiegogo participants the opportunity to buy stock in the corporation and become owner investors at $200 (two hundred dollars) times a million individuals will make them investor/owners of this national news media operation, provide the $200 million to launch the cable news television network and give us a built-in audience, on a daily basis, larger than any of the major cable news television networks. Advertisers will be lining up to gain access to our audience of owner/viewers.
