It’s funny… I recently added a little icon for the boycotting of B.E.T. a few nights ago (thanks to Folk’s help). I added a few extra notes in this boycott icon because, well I know who owns B.E.T. I can’t exclude Robert “Bob” Johnson’s exploitation of Black people either as he was the one who sold that network that eventually landed in Redstone’s hands. Well, in checking the email a short while ago I got an interesting read and audio link about Sumner! Here’s a few quotes you should find interesting: “We’re not going to kill him”, “we’re not going to fire him”, we’re not going to hurt this guy”, “we just want to know the name of your source”– “we just want to talk to him”.
Hmph… the fact that he’d state such things should prove that there’s a side to media/entertainment that most know nothing about. We are blissfully ignorant. Those words were not left because of some sort of death threat to Sumner, nooo… he simply didn’t like that this reporter of entertainment had written a piece where Redstone was discussed as a negative influence on a channel your children and teens watch– MTV. Sumner appears to be upset about a show where he’s exploiting a girl band [group] that has no talent but PLENTY of sexually inappropriateness. You can hear the clip and read the full story HERE. Do you still think ‘entertainment’ is innocent fun? By the way– he’s not just the Chairman, he’s the owner of many networks that we think are “independent” so get your heads out of the sand, fellow people.
