Defenders Of The Establishment In Detroit Are Pissed That Dateline NBC Filmed A Critical Portrayal Of The City Of Detroit

THIS MACHINE REMAINS IN POWER IN DETROIT!!


THE MACHINE HAS NOT MISSED A STEP, SUFFERING ANY CONSEQUENCES IN THE EYES OF THE PEOPLE WHO ARE MORE PROUD THAT THEY ARE IN POWER RATHER THAN "DA OTHER MAN" OCCUPYING THE SEAT OF POWER.  BOTH THE "RANK & FILE" AND THE ELECTED OFFICIAL HAS LOST TRACK OF THE CONSCIOUSNESS ABOUT THEIR OWN PERMANENT INTERESTS A LONG TIME AGO.

They operated upon their lust for power for years, failing to build up the internal infrastructure that would have build up the competency of the masses along the way.



THE BEST IS ALL GONE OUT OF DETROIT








Question:  What is the difference between those who think that there is no particular point of being "too negative" in television portrays of the American South versus those who are now up in arms about Dateline NBC's characterization of modern day Detroit?

Answer:  A perceived personal assault and a desire to protect the establishment.

When it comes to the South if the entire region is attacked as "backward and bigoted" then this opens the door for "enlightenment" by forces that are favorable to the person in question.   For Detroit - a report that focuses on its painful truth is a report that has gone too far.

If Dateline NBC had simply stuck to the script and blamed the corporations for all of the areas problems these same people would have cheered.

The real tragedy of Detroit is that the main people who are demanding an "Urban Marshall Plan" are a part of the movement which took over Detroit in the past several decades.  Not only have local voters expressed "voter nullification" in retaining this machine - with this new round of money dumped into Detroit they are on the verge of retaining their power through this episode.  Just as the various banks and corporations that took money had to fire their leaderships - so to should the leadership of Detroit go if they take the external money.
