Media Diversity

Post by sinklair » Thu Aug 27, 2020 9:36 am

The NBA, MLB, MLS, WNBA and other major sports leagues took a brave stance yesterday in the wake of the murder of Jacob Blake.

How soon before these protests impact other areas of society — including media organizations — where oppression, including the lack of representation in key management/decision-making roles? Look at most broadcasting companies and you’d believe you’re still living in the 1960’s — all white men. Exhibit A: Sinclair Broadcast Group

I’m sure you’d love to get paid for not working. It’s what pro athletes should do too.

Oh, and it’s not brave if everyone is doing it.

Oh, and Bill Harris quit working a while ago. Not out of protest, but rather out of laziness and ineffectiveness. He told people to “pray for” Sinclair to take over. He willfully supports these white men who support cops 100%.

Dudley: not crying. Advocating change.

Posters on the Buzzboard constantly cry about the current state of journalism. Let’s try a different model — one that includes more diverse voices than just the old white male dinosaurs that make up Sinclair’s board and corporate team. In the words of Donald J Trump... “what the hell do you have to lose?”

Joe Biden and Bill Harris fit the group you are bashing.
