Black People And Fake News – The Gantt Report

AFRICANGLOBE - Most news reports have always been fake, or at least, lacking in factual content. The idiotic idea that “fake news” just began with Hillary Clinton’s loss to President Donald Trump is laughable. It is easy to fake news stories in the United States because Americans love less information. They want their news in bits. They prefer the sound bite over the documentary. They enjoy news that is quick, fast and easy and hate to have to read more than a paragraph, news they can listen to for only a minute or two and broadcast news that lasts shorter than the Viagra commercials that follow it!

Black Media Needs Ownership—And Control

Most so-called Black media outlets are merely White media masquerading as Black-owned media. The Grio is owned by NBC, The Root is owned by the Washington Post, Essence is owned by Time, and BET is owned by Viacom. Each of these outlets is run by Black people who serve as the public face of their White-owned companies.

The Need Is as Great as Ever for Black Media

AFRICANGLOBE - Long before the Civil War, a group of free African-American men founded a publication called Freedom’s Journal. It was to be the first newspaper published in the United States by African-American journalists, starting in 1827. The objective of the newspaper, which was published in New York City, was to fight against the degradation of Black people and to call for an end to slavery.
