The way James is being portrayed in public reminds me of the kinds of self-righteous value judgments people make against African-American athletes on a regular basis. By simply making a business decision that is best for his family, James has suddenly been defined by sports writers and some members of the public as a "great athlete, but a bad human being," which can almost be as bad as being a criminal. Let's be clear: LeBron James has not been arrested, caught in a bar room brawl, beat his baby mama or done anything that would allow us to somehow decide he's a bad person for not giving up the rest of his career and staying in a city he probably wanted to leave years ago. Cleveland is a wonderful place, but LeBron James was literally giving up millions of dollars in opportunities (not to mention his legacy) by staying there for as long as he did.

I do notice every morning that Wayne and Tracy coordinate their outfits. It is very nice to realize how much Tracy and Wayne get along and it shows not only in their outfits, but alos in the way they deliver the news and interact with each other. Keep up the good work!

That was some artist that paints with her chest.

Maybe you could do a story on Pricasso.

He is amazzing.

Finally someone is noticing what I've been talking about. What is with the uneven eyebrows, too, Wayne? As you would say, "GOODNESS GWACIOUS!" PLEASE, Fox 8, get someone who can speak and who has a clue about what century it is.
Also, as I've said before, how about we send Kenny Crumpton back to English class so he can learn another adjective besides "COOL." That would be helpful, since we have to imagine what he's talking about anyway, due to his cameraman's inability to zoom out of a shot.(this is great for those viewers interested in seeing up someone's nostrils or into their pores.

Hello Mr Dawson
In 1996 Batima passed away from breast cancer. She had graduated from Shaw HS, Spellman College, and Tish University NYU. As a legacy of her life her alumni are having a walk from Cleveland to NY. I know I am late but I think it is worth mentioning. I wil try to forward the e-mail but if I can't my address is beegs1949@yahoo.com
Hello All,



This young lady was a grad of Shaw HS, Suma Cum. of Spellman, and NYU's Tish. I know this is truly late, but if there is any support out their please consider this. Breast cancer took Batima in "96" this would be an appropriate legacy.

you owe all Christians an apology. just because you are not a Christian doesn't give you the right to bash us on-air. anyone who knows the Bible knows the truth about yoga. this is a religios thing not a Christian thing. big difference!i will no longer watch when you are on. really upsetting.

Hey Wayne,

We sat together behind Savannah at a Cavs game last year...I have a song called "Qwitness" I'd like to send, I think you'll get a kick out of it given all that transpired last year...it's posted on the "John called Mark" facebook page for now and should be up on I-tunes by the end of the week if you want to listen...it's pretty good...maybe a live performance of the song on December 2 is in order when the Heat arrive in town...

hopefully I'll bump into you again this year...the Cavs need our support now more than ever...

Does anyone know if the rumor is true that Fox8 management is going to get rid of buffoon Wayne Dawson? As tolerant said above, he's an embarrassment to the city. He cant pronounce 1/3 of the words in the English language correctly. I was at the Crown Plaze picking up an out of town business guest and had to explain idiot Dawson to him as he was watching the show in the lobby. I'd say don't fire him, just put him behind the scenes in a role where he doesn't have to speak to try to be funny saying things like skin flute.

Dawson is inept and inarticulate. His attempt to cover his inabilty to speak by dressing in out of date suits with dark shirts/white collars make him look like somehing from a 90's flava-flav music video.

FINALLY! Someone else is noticing how useless Wayne Dawson is on Fox8! Inarticulate is an understatement--my husband and I always imitate his Elmer Fudd-ness and inability to pronouce even simple words. Thanks for voicing it!

Wayne, i just want you to know that I find you so sexy. I imagine your face when I lay with my husband. I would love to rub you down in olive oil and salt and pepper you and lick you down. That would make my life feel complete.

FOX 8 recognizes that Dawson is a bone. They are just too scared to deal with repercussions of ostracizing a minority. It's a shame, because it's his moronic behavior that makes him so horrible, not the color of his skin.

I teach English as a second language at the Croation Community Alliance. I show clips of Dawson trying to pronounce John Demjanjuk as a means to demonstrate poor phonetics. Its football season now...if you want a good laugh, tune in and listen to him try to say Colt McCoy. "Cote McKoo!"
