[Media] FRIEND OR FOE

It is really nothing wrong with the media, I love the media, I believe that the media is the most interesting part of our progress. Yet, I sometimes get the impression that just maybe those within the media play up on things an awful lot, there are those within the media who show no sympathy, and maybe that is some sought of rule that those in the media must go by. I can understand the getting the news, the absolute way of captivating those persons whenever I want the news, but sometimes there must be a line. For instance, let us take some radio talk show people. In some of those that are conservative, or white (not trying to be racial), they tend to show less passion whenever some persons come onto their show and talk. Most of the time, the producer of that show will not allow that person to talk about anything and will ask that person what he or she is talking about. I notice that on Limbaugh show or Hannity show (sometimes). On the Joe Madison show WOL (Black owned radio), he and even other talk show persons on WOL will listen to people, will allow people to talk, and the producer does not question them. WOL will enter the very existence of the inner community and talk to "the little old lady on the street", or "the young teenager who has a problem" or even debate on any topic. Conservative radio does not allow this. They will hang up on you. So I ask: can the Media be a friend or can it be a foe to you? Joseph
