People who go to Coachella are mostly suckers anyway, so who cares if Yeezy sells them $50 socks in a fake-ass “church” service? If the masses were entertained… huzzah! Notorious J-A-Y joins me to talk Tiger Woods, Kate Smith controversy, free college, and letting the Boston Marathon bomber vote. We’ve got a rousing FTG, and I have some thoughts on Luke Walton’s sexual battery lawsuit.
Mr. Czaban, regarding your thoughts around the Walton sexual assault situation and how it should be treated: that horse has long left the barn, has run down the road, and is heading out of the county. Remember you stated earlier in the podcast about how the technology giants want conflict, as it increases peoples use of social media. That, along with the news and sports media needing the same thing, and all the sports and other talk shows needing to fill time with things they believe will attract listeners and viewers, is why we are now in a “guilty until proven innocent” era of society. The increased use of social media and website clicks is what these entities desire. You cannot get that by waiting patiently for the facts to come out. The volume of noise over an “outrage” is always much more than what occurs if the outrage is proven to be incorrect. As for the collateral damage done when things are proven false… well, the rarest words you hear these days are “I’m sorry, I was wrong”. No one is going to take responsibility for these mistakes, because they know fewer people will remember the mistake than the original report. Or, they will use the dodge “well, it may not have happened in this case, but since this sort of thing does happen, it is still important that we report it as soon as possible to shine a light on these kinds of situations.” As Hyman Roth said in the Godfather Part 2, “this is the business we’ve chosen”.
It was a different time she was young and probably did not have a choice of what to sing also it was the depression and maybe if she refused work she and her family might have not had food to eat
Great discussion on race in society. Probably the only forum you could get away with this.
