Gil Noble, pioneering black journalist, dies. @wcntv remembers. | Occupy Transmedia Daily | Scoop.it

@wcntv commentary and Memoriam

 

Like it is and Soul Train were two of the most important television shows in Black America.  Our mentors are leaving one by one but the legacy lives on.  We share our deep condolences to the Noble Family and to all New Yorkers who have lost a voice crying in the wilderness. RIP Gil Noble.

 

Gil Noble, who became one of the city’s most revered black media voices for seeking the truth even when it was hard to find and hard to hear, died Thursday at the age of 80.

 

He had suffered a debilitating stroke last summer that forced him to leave “Like It Is,” the weekly public affairs program he had hosted on WABC-TV since 1967.

Over nearly five decades he became an admired colleague, an iconic community voice and an uncompromising survivor.

 

News director Bob Slade of WRKS (98.7 FM) noted that “Like It Is” was the last regular public affairs show in local mainstream media with a focus on black affairs, politics, music and culture.

"Like It Is" featured Noble's commentary, analysis and interviews with thousands of guests, from the late Kwame Ture, Dr. Martin Luther King and civil rights pioneer Fannie Lou Hamer to entertainers like Lena Horne and Bill Cosby.

“Gil Noble's life and work had a profound effect on our society and culture," said WABC-TV President and General Manager Dave Davis. "His contributions are a part of history and will be remembered for years to come. Today, our hearts are with Gil's family - his wife Jean and their five children - and we thank them for so lovingly sharing him with the world all these years."

DO YOUR REMEMBER YES WE CAN? The Story of Us: Five Years Ago Today @BARACKOBAMA @WHLIVE

@WCNTV COMMETNARY:

 

DO YOU REMEMBER? Yes we Can!!!

You cannot help watchng this video and not remember your piece of history.  Remembering meeting at Georgia Tech to make signs because the campaign did not have enough money to have printers do them.  DO YOU REMEMBER WINNING.  Well artfully, the President just sent us a message to take us back then forward to this present time.  And while his detractors are scoring cheap divisive and just plain wrong ideas for this country POTUS and FLOTUS are doing their job and deserve our support and that is why I am forwarding and supporting Obama 2012.  ROCK THE VOTE AT WWW.WCNTV.TV ONE NOTE ABOUT REPUBLICANS A TRUE GREAT LEADER JOHN WILKS WHO WORKED IN THE NIXON ADMINISTRATION AND WAS MY PERSONAL MENTOR. HE WOULD BE SADDEN TODAY IF HE WERE ALIVE BECAUSE COUNTRY ALWAYS BECAME BEFORE PARTY.  THAT SEEMS TO BE LOST IN THIS ELECTION. WE ARE ON THE SAME TEAM HE USED TO REMIND ME.

 

HERE IS THE PRESIDENTS MESSAGE:

You should be with us in 2012: https://my.barackobama.com/storyofusvid

President Obama wrote a message to us today:

"Five years ago today, a few thousand of us gathered in Springfield, Illinois, to launch an improbable campaign for president.

The task was to build a grassroots movement capable of making the kind of change we believe in.

 

You've got to see this video about that journey -- it will make you smile.

From the very start this has been an experiment in our political process, testing whether ordinary people really can still come together to change this country.

 

We proved that it's possible. But we've also learned that entrenched interests adapt and claw back even harder, which means this election will be even more of a challenge.

 

I can't wait to see what you can do.

Barack"

 

There's more work to be done, join us now: https://my.barackobama.com/storyofusvid

Stop Congressional Insider Trading POTUS asks for Bill to Stop the Madness @barackobama @WHLive

Stop Congressional Insider Trading POTUS asks for Bill to Stop the Madness @barackobama @WHLive | Occupy Transmedia Daily | Scoop.it

wcntv commentary: POTUS asked for a bill to stop insider trading in Congress. But isn't that asking the Fox to provide security for the Chicken Coop. We the people want such a bill, a level playing field between the American People and our Representatives in Washington. Anyone Remember Eddie Murphy in The Distinguished Gentlemen.

 

How on point was that script? Washington is broken and specifically Congress is broken, with two sets of rules and laws for the Public vs those set for Congress.

 

Surely the forefathers did not set out the Constitution to create this mess and disparity. But where is the media reporting for this. Of all of the items covered by the news media, I have heard not one report calling for Congress to provide the President the Wall Street Bill to sign.

60 Minutes has reported it some time ago and now The President has asked for legislation to close those loopholes and others apparently.

 

Should this be allowed to be sweep under the rug? We the People Think Not. It’s time to OCCUPY LEGISLATION TO STOP INSIDER TRADING BY OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS.

 

Insider Trading: How Congress Can Make Big Bucks at Our Expense

 

The federal government has finally got the message that it’s time for stronger oversight of Wall Street and the financial services sector. It’s also time to put an end to secret spending and insider trading.

 

A dangerous legal loophole still exists which allows members of Congress and high-powered executive branch appointees to exploit 'insider' knowledge of the financial industry in order to turn personal profit.

 

Under current law, those who have access to the privileged "non-public information" gathered through official oversight proceedings may be using that information for personal benefit in securities and commodities trading. Equally as abhorrent, lobbyists and traders who haunt the halls of Congress seeking insider tips from staff – known as “political intelligence consultants” – may also enrich themselves and their clients off of this confidential information.

 

This type of "insider trading" would be illegal for you and me - so why should it be legal for government officials?

He also said "We live in a bubble, and I don’t mean a tech bubble or a valuation bubble. I mean a bubble as in our own little world.... Companies can’t hire people fast enough. Young people can work hard and make a fortune. Homes hold their value."

Obama Protesting at Harvard in 1991 Watch how a President is Born.

@wcntv commentary. If you love history and how a President is born examine his roots. Totally inspriational love him or hate him.  You gotta respect him as THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.  ROCK THE VOTE.

 

Barack Obama in a 1990 video at Harvard protests in favor of the cause of Professor Derek Bell and the hiring of more minority faculty members.

 

Andrew Kaczynski of Buzzfeed discovered this little gem of a video, in which then-law student Barack Obama spoke at a protest in favor of Harvard Law Professor Derrick Bell.

 

Kaczynski explains what the protest was all about.

Bell was the first black tenured professor at the school, and a pioneer of "critical race theory," which insisted, controversially, on reading issues of race and power into legal scholarship. His protest that spring was occasioned by Harvard's denial of tenure to a black woman professor, Regina Austin, at a time when only three of the law school's professors were black and only five women. He told Harvard he would take a leave of absence — a kind of academic strike — "until a woman of color is offered and accepted a tenured position on this faculty," and he launched a hunger strike to dramatize his point.

Obama was a major figure on campus, the first black president of the Law Review. Some friends, in a prescient joke, just referred to him as "the first black president." He had a reputation as a conciliatory figure, not a confrontational one like Bell.

 

Probably the most amazing thing about it is the fact that Obama's speech-giving style is so little changed since his days at Harvard. Obama has the same soaring cadence, dramatic pauses, and light-hearted jokes that you find in almost every one of his speeches.

Here's the video:

Obama Pulls The Trigger On The January Surprise @BARACKOBAMA

Obama Pulls The Trigger On The January Surprise @BARACKOBAMA | Occupy Transmedia Daily | Scoop.it
The big homeowner refinancing plan that everyone saw coming.  I told you so. This was the housing policy bombshell from President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address:

And while Government can’t fix the problem on its own, responsible homeowners shouldn’t have to sit and wait for the housing market to hit bottom to get some relief. That’s why I’m sending this Congress a plan that gives every responsible homeowner the chance to save about $3,000 a year on their mortgage, by refinancing at historically low interest rates. No more red tape. No more runaround from the banks. A small fee on the largest financial institutions will ensure that it won’t add to the deficit, and will give banks that were rescued by taxpayers a chance to repay a deficit of trust.

Why SOPA Is Dangerous

Why SOPA Is Dangerous | Occupy Transmedia Daily | Scoop.it
One writer discusses why we need to understand and oppose SOPA -- immediately.

 

I’m sure you’ve heard by now that SOPAis bad and would ruin the Internet, but have you actually read the bill? If not, it’s worth reading, for two reasons. First, if you are going to oppose a bill, you should know exactly what you’re opposing, not just the vague principle behind it. Second, it’ll provide you with a valuable insight: that these bills are written in an attempt to obscure the truth.First off, I’m going to qualify that I’m not a lawyer. However, I am a programmer, and that’s made me pretty good at unraveling spaghetti code. If ever a bill was spaghetti, this is it. If a programmer on my team wrote code as convoluted as this bill, I would fire him on the spot. That being said, there may be provisions I’m wrong about; if there are, please do correct me. My intent is to communicate the truth of this bill as cleanly as possible.
