In Hollywood, executives are notoriously reluctant to admit that they’re on the lookout for viewers of color. For some reason, it seems to be conventional wisdom that, say, the kind of content that African-American audiences are looking for overlaps in no way with anything any white viewer might be engaged by, ever. And so expressing a wish for a black, Latino, or Asian audience is apparently to express a wish to make a niche product.
So there’s something really refreshing about seeing MSNBC president Phil Griffin tout the fact that his network, which was already number one in cable news for African-American viewers, grew their African-American viewership in 2012 by 60 percent, in a year when CNN’s grew 23.7 percent and Fox’s declined by the same number.
http://thinkprogress.org/alyssa/2013/01/08/14...
i wonder why FOX declined?
So, according to Hollywood, white isn't a color.

Actually, they're looking for money. they will do what gets them money.

The viewers will tune in to listen to what they wish was true.

Here's a question for eveyone who thinks CNN is informing their audience:

Exactly where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi?

CNN kind of left you ignorant on that, didn't they?

state of panic exists because Republican members of Congress demand a state of paralysis. They want to freeze the world as it is because the new world doesn't have room for white male bigots who base their lives on Bronze Age mythology and white, privileged, Jeffersonian-style institutional racism. Their real ideology has nothing to do with gun rights, fighting against abortion or reducing the size of the federal deficit, but has everything to do with their own personal psychological turmoil.

Relax globalist. All your scripted factoids are about as fresh as the TRUE love liberals have of freedom. Why stop with "bronze age mythology"? Was stone age already taken by you losers? Because without the welfare for the 47% would they be capable of anything else than stone-age thinking?

Republicans are IDIOTS and not trying to sabotage. They have no clue what is going on and I think they are mostly willing to go along with both disarmament, drone-police and taxing people to the hilt. They are all globalists that have no respect or a nation state.

Finally, no wonder we hate people like you when all you do is demonize us,. There isn't a hint of empathy among people like you. THIS is the main reason I (and millions others) will NOT give up weapons, because I am pretty sure you lying liberals will "get rid o trouble makers next".

And now the UN is suggesting drone police. We got it already in Seattle. You liberals fascists must be proud of hat you guys have set into motion. You can sit an laugh now. It's gonna be hard to ride to eternity on welfare when the dollar will be less worth than the words of democrat/republican politician, when the ones with resources and willingness leave and when so many of us from now on will be willingly and knowingly look for any means to legally do anything to the society that keeps oppressing.

O'Reilly simply suggested an audit into Planned Parenthood to ensure this amendment was being upheld last night.
You'd think he had suggested an all out war against PP by their representative's response.
If PP is not using federal funds, of which they receive over 500 billion, to pay for abortions, why would anyone resist the idea of looking into it on behalf of taxpayers who want to be reassured their tax dollars aren't funding these abortions?
Red flags went up all over the place.
I, for one, would like to be reassured the Hyde Amendment is being upheld with Planned Parenthood funding.

Of course she thinks this is the most important issue, it is with all you evangelical control freak misogyists.

the money for obama's government comes from the same place as the money for Nixon's, reagan's, Daddy Buh, and W's.
What part of that are you having difficulty understanding?
The new found conservative hatred for deficits is laughable at best! Please name ANY republican administration that didnt borrow to run the government....I'll wait!
I read, and reread your response, and I still can't see where you identified a source of money.
Can you repost, and this time actually identify a source of money in your post.
The question remains unanswered:

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

If this question isn't answered, the government collapses and the existence of the United States is ended.

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

Legislators: Taxing Ammo into Oblivion Might Be Easier Than Ridding the Country of Guns
http://minutemennews.com/2012/12/legislators-...
Or, the government can consume all the manufacturing capability for ammunition, not leaving any manufacturing capability to service the American public.
I reference the original procurement by Obama for 750 million rounds of ammunition for the FBI, BATF and DHS, which has subsequently been increased to 1.2 billion rounds.
Perhaps the average person is not aware of the actual scale of this procurement. Here's something to reference it to:

If two world powers engage in a full-scale war, such as France and Germany in World War I, that full-scale war will consume about 70 million rounds of ammunition per year.
750 million rounds is enough ammunition for France and Germany to fight World War I for over 10 years.

"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."

http://jpetrie.myweb.uga.edu/TJ.html

This quotation has not been found in any of the writings of Thomas Jefferson. It is often seen preceded by the sentence, "No freeman shall be debarred the use of arms," which is from Jefferson's draft of the Virginia Constitution.

Nothing wrong with limiting flurocarbons and emmissions type stuff.

Kind of like trying to invent a heat proof cap for volcanoes, if it can't erupt up, it'll erupt out, or down (like the current economy :-)....) so why waste the time and already denigrated resources in doing so.
So you are suggesting we leave it up to people & corporations to limit these voluntarily?

We need action such as tax breaks/penalties, EPA action, and a cap & trade.

Reuters)- A 79-year-old Florida woman pleaded guilty on Tuesday to criminal charges of tax evasion through accounts at Swiss bank UBS AG, one of the largest such prosecutions in years.
Mary Estelle Curran pleaded guilty in United States District Court in West Palm Beach, Florida, to two charges of filing false tax returns that failed to report her UBS accounts from 2001 to 2007, court papers show.
Curran's UBS accounts used foundations in Liechtenstein and Panama, two tax havens, to conceal money, the Justice Department said in a statement. She faces six years in prison.
At their peak, in 2007, the accounts held more than $42 million, making the case among the largest of its kind.
Curran's accounts evaded U.S. taxes of $667,700, court papers show. Under onerous U.S. penalties for failing to report the accounts, Curran agreed to pay a civil penalty of more than $26.6 million, representing 50 percent of the high balance in the accounts. In addition, she owes back taxes of more than $667,700, plus penalties and interest, court papers show.
http://news.yahoo.com/former-ubs-client-flori...
Interesting story, she inherited the accounts from deceased husband Mortimer in 2000 and they were managed by a fiduciary until being closed in 2008. Roy Black is her attorney.

Looks like son Mortimer II runs a funding company and is involved in the real estate bus.

Mary was big in charity for needy and disabled youth.

First, just what is "quantative easing"?? Quantative is not a word, nitwit.

I really enjoy your display of ignorance.

The President did not use 'quantatative easing'.

That would be the Federal Reserve, which is an independent agency.

You really don't understand how the Government works, yet make stupid comments concerning its' workings. How ignorant of you.

""The Federal Reserve System (also known as the Federal Reserve, and informally as the Fed) is the central banking system of the United States. It was created on December 23, 1913, with the enactment of the Federal Reserve Act, largely in response to a series of financial panics, particularly a severe panic in 1907. Over time, the roles and responsibilities of the Federal Reserve System have expanded and its structure has evolved.""

The Federal Reserve has far more power than a mere President. The Fed controls our entire monetary system.

Remember the words of Mayer Rothschild..........

Oh, I forgot. You're an uneducated fool. You never knew the words of Mayer Rothschild.
