In some of my documents, I note that, on November 19, 2009, "Climate-gate" began, and it is an event in which someone captured and released to the public private emails and other electronic documents associated with the Climatic Research Unit of the University of East Anglia (Norwich, the United Kingdom) that show the manmade-global-warming idea is a lie and fake and show some of the people who have been pushing the lie and some of the entities that have been pushing the lie, and, yet, many persons in the main media have not reported good information about Climate-gate, and some of those persons are the staffers of NBC News and MSNBC. If you have not heard about Climate-gate before now, such as through your favorite news broadcast, you now have more evidence of who the enemies of the United States of America are--many media people--and I note that more enemies of the United States of America--and even of the world--are those who are more interested in finding the someone who made the emails and other electronic documents public, such as U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer, than showing the emails and other electronic documents that have the truth about manmade global warming. Besides showing you the essence of "Climate-gate," this edition of T.H.A.T. shows other matters related to television that you will not learn about through television progams probably.
Special commentary: Oh, on Sunday, November 22, 2009, I caught the opening of 60 Minutes--that part during which the previews are done--and I had to quickly turn away to another channel, after having heard them say something like Medicare is going to bankrupt the country. Well, I know the story was being done to help push the idea that Barack Obama's health-care change for the country will save everything. I know that is crap! Barack Obama is already bankrupting the country through his polices, and his health-care system will truly send the United States of America into deeper debt. Barack Obama is purposely working to kill the United States of America. Such evil people those people at 60 Minutes are! I would love to say that to their faces. Such dangerous people. They are my enemy and they are enemies of the United States of America! Have you figured out that they are your enemy? It is time to fight back! (Oh, it was on December 9, 2009, when I heard that Barack Obama had already been scheduled to be on 60 Minutes again--on Sunday, December 13, 2009--and there is more proof that the staffers of 60 Minutes are enemies of the United States of America.)
I have said in other documents of mine that we are in "The Pseudo Information Age and the Age of Ignorance," and one reason for that is many of the persons working in the main media are under educated, liars, communists, socialists, or Marxists, and they are doing journalism work that is keeping people in this country ignorant and uninformed (and one good example of that is the review of a Stephen Clark (of WXYZ-TV) health-care report that I did in the previous edition of T.H.A.T.), and the bad work is evident in serious entertainment magazines, two of which are Variety and Broadcasting & Cable. Variety and Broadcasting & Cable are two publications that I have subscribed to for about three decades; actually, I began to be a subscriber to Variety in the early 1970s, and I think I began to be a subscriber to Broadcasting and Cable in the laste 1970s or early 1980s. In addition, while doing research on television over the last nearly four decades, I have seen most of the issues of Variety from the mid 1940s to the mid 1970s (I saw them at the Music and Performing Arts department of the main branch of the Detroit Public Library) and I have seen many of the issues of Broadcasting & Cable or the magazine when it had other titles) from the late 1930s to the early 1980s (I saw them at the Music and Performing Arts department of the main branch of the Detroit Public Library or at WAYN-AM, 860, Detroit, Michigan. (To learn about WAYN-AM, you may use this link: WAYN-AM.) This fall, I have let my subscriptions to Variety and Broadcasting & Cable run out. I know much of the history of what both magazines have been for decades. In essence, from the 1940s to the early 1990s or so, Variety has been a weekly stage/television/movie magazine, which has included obituaries, and from the early 1990s to today, it has turned into a weekly magazine that covers movies, a little bit of stage, and a tiny bit of television, and, recently, it stopped presenting obituaries, and the magazine covers a lot of foreign-entertainment-markets stuff, especially in relation to movies, and the magazine offers little useful information about television for me anymoe--I liked the obituaries, because they gave information about what television actors and television-product people did in the past (though, of course, not in super detail, as might be shown in a detailed resume). Of Variety and Broadcasting & Cable, Broadcasting & Cable has turned into a more useless publication. Broadcasting & Cable has always been a weekly publication that has focused mostly on television (broadcast television and cable television), and since the early 1990s, I have watched it turn into a throw-away publication of only a few pages, and the general feel of the magazine is as a pat-on-the-back magazine, which no longer seems to value facts and data; for example, it regularly has fluff pieces on people, and it, like a lot of magazines, spends more time on presenting commentary than on presenting news. By the way, if you were to look back at Broadcasting as it was in the 1960s and read a bunch of issues, you could figure out what was going on in the broadcast field at the time, or you could learn something; in thirty years, if you were to look back at issues that are are being put together now, you would have a hard time learning what went on. Lately, it was getting to the point that I would spend a few minutes--or moments--looking at the text in an edition of Broadcasting & Cable and then cut out one or two color photographs, and that was that; the magazine had dropped the prime-time ratings chart recently, and, for years, the section that focused on people changing jobs has been getting smaller and smaller, and now it has not much. (Incidentally, since the early 1970s, I have been collecting pictures from a number of magazines, such as television-program-listings publications associated with The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press as a hobby, though I started doing it because I wondered if someday I could do movie hosting on a local show as Bill Kennedy did on television in the Detroit area from the 1950s to the 1980s in the Detroit area.) A month or two ago, I was thinking about keeping Variety and killing off Broadcasting & Cable, and then Variety dropped the television ratings chart and stopped putting in obituarites. Incidentally, Variety barely provides any television reviews, which used to be really numerous in the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, and even the 1970s, and the drop off in the number of television reviews presented has been steadily taking place since the early 1990s. Some people will argue Variety and Broadcasting & Cable are getting hurt in readership by the Internet, but I argue the reporters or writers and editors of today are not as good at their jobs as their predecessors were; the people of the past knew what facts and figures and data were, and they presented facts and figures and data and news, and the people of today seems to want to be only columnists and write commentary and editorials (who without good facts and figures and data and news are bad columnists and commentators). By the way, several years ago, I complained through a letter about how the writers of Broadcasting & Cable were doing articles that noted that such and such a series was sold in syndication for such and such a price, but, unlike the writers of the past, the writers were not noting the "window" and how many runs an episode would get, but they would note a total cost of what a package sold for, and the person who wrote back said that the situation would change, and the situation did not. For a while recently, I thought I could consider changing from Variety to Daily Variety, but I thought I probably would be spending more time cutting out more pictures with Daily Variety than I did with Variety. I say that many newspapers and magazines are losing readership because the operators have stopped giving news, facts, data, truth, et cetera, and now Variety and Broadcasting & Cable have one less subscriber.
Advertisement: In March 2009, a book called Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto, which had been written by Mark R. Levin, was published. Through the book, Mark R. Levin talks about how tyranny has been creeping into the country, and he also talks about how the country has been changing from a representative republic, which has a constitution as a basis, to something, yet to be defined, and although Mark R. Levin says that it is the statist who is causing the change, especially those who are a part of the Democratic Party and in government jobs, I say that it is communists, socialists, would-be dictators, and Marxists, such as Barack Obama, who are making the changes, such as by discarding The U.S. Constitution. I urge you to see and read Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto, and pass it on to others, especially teenagers and young adults (and consider listening to The Mark Levin Show, the nationally syndicated radio show, on a regular basis).
In Detroit, five broadcast stations provide local newscasts for viewers--WJBK-HD (Channel 2.1), WDIV-HD (Channel 4.1), WXYZ-HD (Channel 7.1), WMYD-HD(Channel 20.1), and WWJ-HD (Channel 62.1). Of the five, I am going to talk about the news departments at WJBK-HD (Channel 2.1), WDIV-HD (Channel 4.1), WXYZ-HD (Channel 7.1) in this edition of T.H.A.T.; I am not going to talk about WMYD-HD (Channel 20.1), because, in truth, the newscast that the station airs is produced by an entity in Davenport, Iowa, though the station does have a small news department, and the newscast airs only on weekdays at 10:00 p.m. and runs only a half hour, and I am not going to talk about WWJ-HD (Channel 62.1), because this station only runs a newscast (First Forecast Mornings) on weekdays from 5:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. (and it is newscast put together in association with the Detroit Free Press). The main focus of this section is to compare some statistics about the on-air talent at WJBK-HD (Channel 2.1), WDIV-HD (Channel 4.1), and WXYZ-HD (Channel 7.1) in the fall of 2007, the on-air talent at WJBK-HD (Channel 2.1), WDIV-HD (Channel 4.1), and WXYZ-HD (Channel 7.1) in the fall of 2008, and the on-air talent at WJBK-HD (Channel 2.1), WDIV-HD (Channel 4.1), and WXYZ-HD (Channel 7.1) in the fall of 2009, and I am doing it to see what my research will find (by the way, the percentages that I present are rounded to the nearest whole number, since I did not want to report such thing as "half a reporter," though the term may fit the truth).
Generally speaking, the number of staffers at Channel 2.1 has increased from the fall of 2007 to the fall of 2009. For the first two research periods, the number of people in the news department stayed about the same, being 19 or 20, and the total number of staffers stayed at about 33. From the 2008 to 2009, the number of persons in the news department stayed at about 20 or 21, and the total number of on-air people increassed from about 33 to 37.
For the most part, there has been little change at Channel 4.1. For the fall research periods, the people that make up the news department--anchors, anchor/reporters, and reporters--was 18 or 19. And when I look at the entire on-air staff, the station had a team of about 29 or 30 persons.
The counts for Channel 7.1 have gone up and down. From 2007 to 2008, the number of the people in the news department went from about 19 to about 31 and the total number of on-air staffers went from 29 to 42. Then, the station cut back. For the fall of 2009, I found 20 persons in the news department and 30 persons on the entire staff.
I must make it clear that my surveys were done in a rough manner. For example, someone could have been on vacation during my survey periods, and I could have missed marking the someone in the statistics. Also, I may have missed noting a special reporter, such as a semi-regular reporter on a morning show.
Incidentally, since WMYD-HD began running a newscast at 10:00 p.m. on weekdays July 14, 2008, there has been a change with the program packager and the on-air staff. In essence, in December 2008, Regional News Network (Davenport, Iowa), which was the program packager, filed for bankruptcy, and, in January, LMG took over the work. Since the first week of the program, the Davenport-based on-air staff changed from Nathan O'Leary (anchor), Sunya Walls (anchor), Roland Glembine (sports), and Susie Martin (weather), all of whom were for the first week, to Melissa Long (anchor), Dean Pantazi (sports), and Curtis Smith (weather), and Jorge Avelan still works as a local reporter (a reporter based at the station), as does Dave Leval, and another locally based reporter is Randy Holloway.
Note: I do urge you to see the previous edition of T.H.A.T., since it has a review of a report on health care by Stephen Clark of WXYZ-HD, and the review puts down the report done by Stephen Clark..
Announcement for the novice again: To get useful news, go to Fox News Channel, WorldNetDaily.com, "The Drudge Report," and CNS News (which is on the Internet and which was launched on June 16, 1998), since the entities do not blindly support Barack Obama, as do CNN, MSNBC, NBC-TV, CBS-TV, and ABC-TV (to learn about bad journalism, you might tune in to CNN, MSNBC, NBC-TV, CBS-TV, and ABC-TV from time to time to see how they differ from the Fox News Channel and those mentioned with it in presenting political stories and events, and you should discover CNN, MSNBC, NBC-TV, CBS-TV, and ABC-TV avoid covering things that make Barack Obama look bad or show his true nature, which could harm you). If you are unclear of my intentions, I say in different words that you should boycott CNN, MSNBC, NBC-TV, CBS-TV, and ABC-TV and hope they lose more ratings and advertising revenues, since they are expendable, and it is time for you to find the guts to be mean and heartless and cancel them--since they are hurting you.
Here, I put in a commentary/review segment. It has been a very, very rare occurance when I have been unable to catch or see a single episode of a series since the early 1970s, and when I miss even a single episode of a series, the reason is the series was cancelled after one episode or two episodes, and the most recent example is my missing an episode of The Beautiful Life: TBL, which ran twice on The CW (on September 16, 2009, and September 23, 2009). It is not that I missed seeing any of the series, because I did see promos on television, an extended trailer on the Internet, and parts of the first episode on the Internet (a clip of two minutes and fifty-three seconds). From what I saw, I am not surprised the series was one that I would have described as a "dead issue." For one, one of the gals who was called Raina Mayer or the new "It" girl" often looked awful, because she was over-thin and sometimes had a lot of dark makeup around her eyes, so often she looked ill (such as anorexic). Also, all the characters seemed shallow, and often the gals appeared to be bitchy. Through what I saw of the show, I got the impression the show did not have a likeable feel to it. I will say that it is good the show died, since one of the "executive producers" was Ashton Kutcher, and it must be remembered, Ashton Kutcher and his wife (Demi Moore) were instrumental in putting together the "Presidental Pledge Video" in which performers pledged to do things in relation to Barack Obama, such as, in one case, pledge to be a "servant to Obama," and, in early 2009, the video was being used to promote to children the idea that Barack Obama was good and should be praised and looked up to (to learn more about the video, you should see my document entitled Lessons for Children about Politics and Dangerous People, which can be reached by using this link: Children).
Announcement and Warning: It seems very likely you have not heard much true news about the United Nations climate-change treaty related to ther gatthering at Copenhagen, Denmark, this December, because the main media, such as NBC-TV, care not if the United States of America becomes just another country governed under a proposed international government and if The U.S. Constitution and rights within it for you get trumped by international laws, such as Sharia Law and communist rules of other countries of the world. Over the next few weeks or months, you are going to learn more from me about how deep the evilness is within the main media of the United States of America through documents of mine, such as upcoming editions of T.H.A.T.. If you know little about the badness of the proposed treaty, you should see what I have passed along from Lord Christopher Monckton in my document entitled World Tyranny: Warnings about the Insane Who are Trying to Create a Communist World Country, which can be reached by using this link: World. When you have an enemy, you hate the enemy and you shut the enemy down! The war is on, and you do not have to be nice!
This segment pertains to the Detroit area and a television-program-listings publications. In past editions of T.H.A.T., I have talked about TV Book, which was a weekly television-listings publication that was distributed by the Detroit Free Press. On October 4, 2009, the last issue of TV Book was issued, and, then, the Detroit Free Press distributed in its Sunday edition for four weeks a publication called ON TV as a promotional event, and the reason was the Detroit Free Press was trying to get people to subscribe to the weekly ON TV magazine; the first edition of ON TV for the Detroit area was issued for October 11, 2009. I saw the ON TV editions, and I have this little review "for the record." I report that ON TV is better than TV Book was, since ON TV, using day-part grids or time grids, shows more information about what shows on going to be on television stations or networks during the coming week; it only seems to miss a few hours, such as the 5:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. period of weekdays and the 4:30 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. period on Sunday. ON TV has several features, such as a highlights section for each day, which is called "ON TV tonight," a crossword puzzle, an "ON Soaps" feature, a "Sudoku" puzzle, a "Sports Quizard" puzzle, a sport quiz, and "Celebrity Extra" feature (and there are other features). To get ON TV, a person must get a subscription for it, since it is not a magazine that is offered regularly with the Sunday edition of the Detroit Free Press (really a combined Detroit Free Press and The Detroit News). If a person does not subscribe to ON TV but the still subscribes to the Sunday edition of the Detroit Free Press, the person still does get a television-program-listings publication, and that publication is entitled ON TV lite, which is basically the TV Book with a new title, and ON TV lite is a publication with program listings in grid form, and it mostly presents information about Saturdays and Sundays and the prime-time periods of the weekdays (it gives a general weekday daytime grid, but that grid does not notes any special things that might show up as one-shot presentations, such as parades), and it does not give informaton about subhannels, as ON TV does. So, given how many networks there are today, I am aware a television-program-listings magazine cannot show or report on the programs of every network, but I say that ON TV is adequate, and it is worthwhile for people who want to see program-grids in paper form. I note here that a person can subscribe to ON TV by getting in contact with the subscription people, either by calling 1-800-395-330 or by going online to www.iwantmytvmagazine.com/detroit.
On Sunday, November 22, 2009, at 12:00 a.m., I decided to watch Wolfman Mac's Chiller Drive-In (the short title of which is as Chiller Drive-In) on WMYD-HD, Channel 20.1, so that I could get another sample credits for the show, which is produced in Detroit and which has a character called Wolfman Mac hosting movies. Wolfman Mac has been hosting movies on Channel 20.1 since March 15, 2008; originally, Wolfman Mac and his sidekick, Boney Bob (who is not a real person), hosted a show under the name Nightmare SINema. Since March 15, 2008, there have been a lot of changes with cast and with the production team, and, in fact, very few who worked on the show in the early days are still working on the production. On November 22, 2009, the cast was Mac Kelly as Wolfman Mac, Wally "Grim Daddy" Wojciechowski as Professor M. Balmer, Nina Kircher as Madame Nina, and Tom Shaker as Doctor Markoff. On Saturday, November 28 2009, the weekly series began to be shown on the Retro Television Network (at 10:00 p.m.); the weekly show that Chiller Drive-In replaced was Castle Blood: Midnight Monster Hop (which featured such performers as Ricky Day as Gravely MacCabre, Karen Dick as Grizelda MacCabre, and Caitlin Dick as Skully MacCabre), which came out of Pennsylvania. (For more information about Wolfman Mac and the gang, you should see T.H.A.T. #48, which can be reached by using this link: T.H.A.T. #48.)
By the way, the Web site for Chiller Drive-In on November 26, 2009, noted that other regulars for the series are Adam Showers as Morbin Melvin, Joe Niedzielski as Trog, "Big Mike" Murphy as Son of Froggy, Susan Valenti as Rubella, Karie Nora as Ivana Werkagenn, and Mike Shellabarger as Sheldon the Monster.
Public Service Announcement: If you wish to avoid giving a donation to nonprofit groups that support "manmade global warming" legislation or "manmade climate-change" legislation, such as the very bad American Clean Energy and Security Act (which is also known as the Waxman-Markey Bill), give to something better--particularly the Heritage Foundation and the Landmark Legal Foundation, which are organizations that support The U.S. Constitution and are working to defeat Barack Obama's plans to take over the country. (You should see my document entitled "CAP AND TRADE" and Carbon Dioxide Facts and Nonsense, which can be reached through this link: Carbon.)
Let me remind you of some text that I presented in the previous edition of T.H.A.T.. "My research has convinced me that Barack Obama's wish to switch to a federal-government-run health-care system would be a bad idea, since such systems are failing in such countries as Canada and England (to see the problems with the health-care system in the U.K., you should see the many real newspaper articles and such that are available through liberty-page.com (I talked about the topic more fully in Michigan Travel Tips #60, which can be reached at this link: Travel #60)). To date, I have yet to see a good and long and detailed television program about the health-care system in the U.K. presented on MSNBC, CNN. NBC-TV, CBS-TV, or ABC-TV, which would really show how the government-run health-care system in the U.K. is falling apart and how individuals, especially the elderly, are being treated terribly." (By the way, the health-care system in England was set up in 1948, and the health-care system in Canada was created in 1984, and the system in England is in worse shape than the system in Canada is, because the system in England is older than the system in Canada is--it takes time for badness to show up and develop into very bad.)
Well, did your favorite television newscast cover the event or story that I cover in this section? On Thursday, November 19, 2009, people in the world began to learn more that manmade global warming is a scam, a lie, a hoax. From that day on, some publications were reporting that a hacker had obtained about 1,000 emails and at least 2,000 other electronic documents tied to pro-manmade-global warming so-called scientists, such as Phil Jones of the University of East Anglia, Norwich, the United Kingdom, and the emails and other electronic documents showed the so-called scientists involved in the scandal, whose information had been reported widely by politicians and news organizations, had lied, faked information, and suppressed opposing information or worked to suppress opposing information about manmade global warming. This scandal is a worldwide scandal, which is now something that the world, specially the scientific community, will have to deal with, such as by exposing the liars and the fake information, or, for one, the scientific community will lose face and will lose respect in the eyes of many, many people, and many, many people will become less likely to believe the words of scientists about the world around us, such as the idea that water does exist on the moon. If your favorite television newscast did not cover the story about the emails and such, that favorite television newscast is either defective because it is put together by low-level shallow thinkers or by evil thinkers, such as communists, whose goal, like that of Barack Obama, is to hurt the United States of America through international climate-change treaties and U.S. "cap-and-trade" acts or laws.
A television set in the United States of America does not have a Channel One, and a television set in the United States of America never has, but there is something called a "Channel One" or "Channel One News"), as there has been since 1989. On Monday, October 19, 2009, I learned through a boy who called into The Mark Levin Show(a nationally syndicated radio show) that Channel One was being used to push Barack Obama and his climate-change junk regularly. Generally speaking, Channel One was created by Whittle Communications as a newscast for schools in 1989, and instrumental in setting up the channel was a man named Christopher Whittle, and, late in 1994, the channel became the property of K-III Communications (which became known as Primedia, Inc., in 1997), and, in early 2007, the channel became the property of Alloy Media and Marketing, and, in mid-2007, NBC News became a supplier of programming for Channel One, and, in late 2009, CBS News became a supplier of programming for Channel One. Find out what our children are seeing on Channel One, if it is available at the school to which your children go, because it may be bad--it may be pushing the supposed goodness of Barack Obama
Public Service Announcement: Rules for Radicals, which is a book put together by Saul Alinsky (a communist) about 35 years ago, is a book that Barack Obama is very familiar with and follows, and if you wonder what you can do in relation to Barack Obama, I say, "Well, see my document entitled Rules of a Radical Destroyer: The Barack Obama Case, which can be reached though this link: Radical.
Again, I have to push you into seeing the 1960s television series entitled The Prisoner, which featured Patrick McGoohan, but I am going to do it a little differently this time. On Tuesday, November 24, 2009--about five days after the news broke about emails captured from East Anglia University (the United Kingdom) that showed the manmade global warming is a hoax and real science was being ignored--I went to my computer and used "The Prisoner Patrick McGoohan" in a keyword search of the Internet. One of the first results that came up was a video clips called "The Prisoner Puzzle pt. 1," which was and is a nine-minute-and-twenty-six-second video that had a man named Warner Troyor interviewing Patrick McGoohan before a small studio audience a number of years ago. At one point during the interview, the main topic was "The Village," which was the setting of the series, and Patrick McGoohan said, "It's a that face that's trying to destroy the individual by every means possible, trying to break his spirit so that he accepts that he's Number Six and will live there happily as Number Six for ever after. And, dah, this is the one rebel that they can't break." Today, you should be able to see that, "that face" is now Barack Obama and his associates, who are working to break the spirit of the individual in the United States of America and break the United States of America, by, for one, driving it into deep debt and damaging the U.S. military, such as through court cases that make the U.S. military look bad in the eyes of the world, one case of which involves U.S. Seals, who in early September 2009 caught a wanted terrorist By the way, Patrick McGooahn, in answering a question about how many scripts that he wrote, said, "...My name was on two, and then I wrote under, ah, a couple of other names, Archibald Schwartz was one and Paddy Fitz was another...." I went to my files and found only these names were listed as writers: David Tomblin, George Markstein, Vincent Tilsley, Anthony Skene, Paddy Fitz, Terence Feely, Joshua Adam, Michael Cramoy, Gerald Kelsey, Ian L Rakoff (credited as writing the "story" with David Tomblin), Roger Parkes, and Roger Woddis, and I could not find "Archibald Schwartz," so, over time, Patrick McGoohan, who probably used "Archibald Schwartz" at some point (maybe as a writer for Danger Man or Secret Agent, seemed to have forgotten a bit of information and history. I do urge you to see the series and show it to children. It surely is much better than watching such prime-time series for this season as The Beautiful Life: TBL (which has been cancelled).
Commentary: Since I published the previous edition of T.H.AT., I put together a document called The Power and the Power Killers: Energy in the United States of America, which shows why the push to wind power is a dead issue and why windmills will be a failure for mass use, and the first version of that document was posted on the Internet on November 18, 2009, and then I caught a fun event on November 25, 2009, which made me think back to my making The Power and the Power Killers: Energy in the United States of America. On Wednesday, November 25, 2009, I ended up watching a portion of the syndicated weekday television show called The Bonnie Hunt Show, and the portion that I saw had Jimmy Kimmel as a guest. Well, before Jimmy Kimmel would be introduced, there was a power outage at the production facility for the television show, and so they had to run the show on a backup power system and mostly in the dark. Ah, yes, we had a look at things to come if the country depends on wind power for electricity--black outs and brown outs and television shows broadcast in the dark or barely broadcast. To get to The Power and the Power Killers: Energy in the United States of America, you can use this link: Power.
Well, let me see. In the next edition of T.H.A.T., I shall take a look as some new or fairly new local programs, such as I Luv 2 Hustle (which I will do for the first time), Dance Party (again), IRA: Independent Retailers Association (for the first time), and Motor City Movie Night, and I shall show what WADL-HD (Channel 38.1) is doing, which is, generally speaking, more than what the other television stations in Detroit are. And we will look at this "Ina" gal of Dance Party, who is better to look at than many of the boob-less gals on prime-time television (which was one theme in T.H.A.T. #66). For now, I will note that I saw an episode of On the Point with Rev. Wendell Anthony that was shown on WADL-HD, Channel 38.1, on Saturday, November 21, 2009, and Rev. Wendell Anthony had two guests (it was a two-part interview; the second part would be played the next week), and one of the guests was Minister Rasul Hakim Muhhad (of Mohammad Mosque No. 1 of the Nation of Islam, which is headed by Louis Farrakhan), who said, "...Look at our reaction on 9/11, for an example...There's not a black--so-called black Muslim--in America that had any fear during 9/11, because--if I could use the term--we're home grown. We know the enemy that we face on a daily basis here...." and "...But, remember, Nation of Islam--...you have to keep in mind--Nation of Islam is the goal of all Muslims to create or and to develop a nation that is obedient to God...."
P.S. #1: The telephone number of the U.S. Congressional Switchboard is: 1-202-224-3121. (Use it to fight against the creation of a national-health-care system, especially a system pushed through law by a defective thinker, a man who has created nothing, and a man whose history is mostly filled with tearing things down, a man who continually puts down the U.S.A.--Barack Obama. By the way, one of the more recent events in which he put down the entire business community of the country took place on Wednesday May 13, 2009, and you should see the second entry for Wednesday, May 13, 2009, in the document entitled Nonsense Statements and Quotations of Barack Obama).
P.S. #2: Do not forget that, since late 2008, I have put within editions of Michigan Travel Tips information about "green technology," "global warming" stuff, and "climate change" stuff, and to get to the catalog for all the Michigan Travel Tips publications, use this link: Travel.
