The Race And Social Justice Problem Solved With The Help Of The David Ignatius Syndrome

    I recently watched David Ignatius, Washington Post Associate editor and columnist, on “Morning Joe,” paying tribute to “his friend,” African American Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates. It immediately raised the question, what did he do or not do during that infamous Gates, Crowley, Obama affair? This was the case in which, Professor Gates was arrested by Sgt. Crowley after “breaking” into his own home. President Obama, in a nationally televised press conference and in response to a question asked by Lynn Sweet, Chicago Sun Times Washington bureau chief, said the police had acted stupidly” by arresting Gates “for breaking into his own home.” With that statement by Obama, it was “Show-time and game-on” as the whole nation watched.

    With the public criticism of the police by President Obama, in this case involving race, it became a historic revelation moment to see if the black President could legitimately criticize an obvious illegal police action involving race. The question being, would the integrated news media react fairly or do what they traditionally do in cases involving race, which is to defer to law enforcement in race matters. It’s not unusual for the news media to knowingly cover-up police misconduct when race is involved, which is exactly what happened in this case.

    Crowley Obama Gates

    At the conclusion of the press conference, we and the whole nation had a front-row seat watching press support of the police cover-up unfold in this race case. However, even though the press and police injustice was there for all to see, most Americans missed the racial travesty that occurred right before our proverbial eyes. Not to be among the bamboozled, we caught and documented this racist travesty in “The Big Cover-Up” video, Otherwise, this racist seminal moment would have been buried in the big stockpile of another racial injustice the press and police got away with.

    THE PROBLEM:

    Finally, we are addressing the last remaining institutional racial inequality that few are even aware it exists much less it’s at the heart of the long-standing unsolved race and social justice problem. 46 million African Americans – spending $1.2 trillion annually – are without national news media representation. This means the most visible, vilified race in the nation, African Americans, are without the most effective accountability imposing apparatus we can ill afford to be without. It also means we are not effectively using our power. This self-imposed inequality is one that only we can fix, a responsibility we have assumed.

    THE SOLUTION: DOING IT RIGHT AND HOW WE WILL MAKE IT HAPPEN

    The launch of our all-inclusive 24-7 national cable news television network will give black Americans national news media representation for the first time in history. It’s spearheaded by our $50,000 minimum “GoFundMe” campaign to produce the pilot. Once produced, with corporate commercials showing it to be a sound business concept. It will be streamed nationally via YouTube and Vimeo Included in the streaming will be our “People Power” capitalization presentation: One million shares offered at $200 a share with no individual allowed more than five shares. This allows us to raise $200 million to launch our 24-7 all-inclusive national cable news television network and 24-7 on-line news magazine with a potential opening viewership of a million partner/owners/ viewers.

    “All-inclusive” is the key – meaning we are not going to continue marginalizing ourselves all over again by being a 24-7 black national cable news television network version of Jet, Ebony or BET. Our all-inclusive enlightened editorial philosophy will cover the same national news but include the issues, interests, and concerns of black Americans, which other news entities have been omitting. Basically, we will produce the national new media editorial concept people mistakenly thought the integrated news media was presenting.

    This gives us a competitive advantage over major news organizations that are not giving the complete story. It’s like the Mueller report versus the Barr redacted version. Most important, we will include accountability where it has never been.

    We are introducing a whole new way for us to see ourselves as black Americans. No longer will we be this helpless powerless race relying on demonstrations for news media attention, which goes through a middleman mainstream news media with their proven racially biased agenda. Establishing our own national news organization will move us from the sidelines to the forefront in the national news media arena finally making us full participants in society. This is the all-inclusive national news media concept America has been missing, has needed, and has been waiting for.

    Finally The Integrated Press And Police Complicity In Race Matters Exposed

    “The Big Cover-Up” video is the much-needed evidence to expose and destroy the myth that integration ended police and press racist practices. The video is a catalog of press and police practices, some being racist, all showing how the news media has contributed to the long-standing unsolved race and social justice problem. It shows how the integrated news media manipulated information to support the nationally revealed false police report of Sgt. Crowley in this Gates-Crowley-Obama race-related case.

    News media complicity kicked in after a televised Perry Mason moment aired nationally on FOX News and CNN’s Anderson Coopers’ hour. It showed Sgt. Crowley had blatantly lied on his police report proven by the contradicting 911 call/recording in his own voice. The video shows black cops adhering to the “code of silence” and black reporters for CNN, Don Lemon and T.J. Holmes, conducting subsequent interviews, redirecting the news media narrative away from Sgt. Crowley’s already revealed false police report. Their new angle was to focus on a claim of police resentment of an “unjustified” criticism of police by the black President.

    Colin Powell, Stephen A Smith, Juan Williams

    The video shows the extent of the integration myth being embraced by black Americans, with Colin Powell and Juan Williams declaring in separate nationally televised interviews that the presence of black officers means there was no racial misconduct. This shows a whole nation having bought into this misguided myth believing integration has ended racist practices since the success of the civil rights movement.

    It’s Hard To Find The Solution When You’re Sitting On The Problem

    The revelation of press and police complicity, explains why philanthropic billions spent over the years and the recently focused efforts by President Obama and the NFL players owners panel to solve this race and social justice problem failed. But for “The Big Cover-Up” video exposé and this endeavor, we could go another fifty years not figuring this thing out.

    At the root of the problem has been the unknown role of the integrated mainstream news media in supporting police misconduct in race matters. In other words, the presumed accountability role of the integrated news media in police and race matters has never existed, except in people’s imagination. The recent revelation of brutality and killings of unarmed black males has been due to advancement in technology– camera phones and YouTube.

    The Anatomy Of Press And Police Complicity In Race Matters

    Because of the involvement of the black President, the case initially received straight forward coverage by CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Fox News’s Greta VanSusteran exposing Crowley’s false police report. This happened before the news media practice of deferring to law enforcement in race matters caught up with and ended the straight forward coverage. The abrupt shift by CNN to Sgt. Crowley being wrongly criticized narrative, ended up exposing the entire news media. Because in order for the cover-up to work all the news people and news organizations had to consciously ignore the false police report which had aired nationally, which they had already seen. Nevertheless, that’s exactly what happened.

    Sgt. Crowley

    Sgt. Crowley, blatantly lying on his police report in this high-profile race case, showed his consciousness of guilt and apparently his little to no concern for news media exposure. The news media subsequently ignoring the false police report showed his lack of concern was justified.

    Greta Van Susteran & Anderson Cooper

    This shift included Anderson Cooper and Greta Van Susteran ignoring their own breaking news scoops (no doubt reigned in by their news organizations) also going silent allowing the aggrieved Sgt. Crowley narrative to prevail. This is the kind of irrefutable evidence we need to show those in the integrated mainstream news media the racist practices in which they are engaged is at the root of the race and social justice problem in failing to impose accountability on law enforcement in race cases.

    For anyone paying attention, police abuse and the unjustified killings of unarmed black Americans has continued with integrated police departments to this day.

    This Is Racism In The News Media’s Moment Of Truth

    For Those With The David Ignatius Syndrome

    This brings us back to the David Ignatius syndrome. David is also a spy novelist, showing how unlikely it is he didn’t recognize the blatant racist injustice involving the President and “his friend Professor Gates.” When I think of an analogous situation where forces at play are so compelling one dare not speak up, it must be like being in the crowd watching your black friend being lynched.

    Rachael Maddow

    However, along with David Ignatius, there are countless journalists, reporters, and political columnist all in a profession that defines itself as truth seekers and tellers. They likely saw the travesty unfold and felt powerless to fight the forces at play in the news media or the “sacred cow” of police infallibility in race matters. For instance, does anyone believe this sham got past Rachael Maddow who uncovers at least one government scandal rivaling the discovery of the “Dead Sea Scrolls” every week? Few if any in the news media, have plausible deniability in this case because they were all tuned in on the first racial controversy, of the first black President, in his first year in office.

    For Those In The News Media, This Is The Ultimate Self Character Check.

    An Opportunity To Remain Part Of The Problem Or Support The Solution?

    This injustice culminated in that farce of a White house beer-fest, which only the complete capitulation of the entire news media betraying their basic journalistic integrity in silently allowing that travesty to take place. Troubling was seeing an exchange a couple of years after that injustice, between Angela Mitchel and Joe Scarborough referring back to the Crowley Gates affair as a lesson Obama should have learned. The two were discussing how he should deal with a current racial incident. It showed they had accepted the manipulated version of that Crowley Gates affair as the historical truth.

    MSNBC Line up

    The whole MSNBC line-up, Mika Brzezinski, Joe Scarborough, Willie Geist, Rachael Maddow, Chris Mathews and Brian Williams all hosted shows at the time of this Gates Crowley travesty and certainly saw the Sgt. Crowley 911- call versus his police report, including Chuck Todd and David Gregory who were White House reporters. Anderson Cooper and Greta Van Susteran have their own stories to tell on why they failed to follow up on their own scoops exposing Sgt. Crowley’s false police report. Add John King to the CNN roster. It strains credulity to think all of the above along with the rest of the news media missed this travesty. Nevertheless, here is this rare opportunity for an honorable response from those in the news media to help right a longstanding wrong of which they have been participants wittingly or unwittingly.

    A Moment Of Truth For Those In The News -Media

    We are sharing our “racism-in-the-news-media” version of the “Me Too Movement,” giving those in the news media, who wittingly or unwittingly went along with that injustice, the opportunity to support this obvious solution. There is a whole new generation of journalist unaware of their having been indoctrinated into this racist tradition and practice of deferring to police in race matters. “The Big Cover-Up” video is required viewing for those who want to learn how the news media is at the heart of the unsolved race and social justice problem. The list of news people posted here are being sent the link to this David Ignatius Syndrome posting.

    We are implementing the obvious solution, which is to establish our all inclusive national news media operation that does not exempt African Americans from the protection of news media imposed accountability. This is the common sense logical solution.

    THE SOLUTION AND HOW WE WILL MAKE IT HAPPEN
