CCTV - is now "CGNT" "Chinese Global Network Television".
I get more detailed information ABOUT AFRICA from the 4 "Africa" programs that they have on their station than from ANY
- Africa Live - twice daily African centric news program, reported BY AFRICAN journalists
- Global Business Africa - a daily economy and business report about African nations
- Faces Of Africa - a weekly 'personality magazine', showcasing a key contributor to Africa
- Talk Africa - a weekly talk show detailing important current events
OF COURSE there is a heavy slant which shows the SPONSOR'S interests in Africa in a positive light. This goes with the territory.
However, it is nothing short of a CRIME that (supposedly) the wealthiest, most media saturated nation in the world (United States) can't manage to put forth an African-centric media source that BREAKS FREE of the "GRAVITATIONAL PULL" of AMERICA/AMERICAN POLITICS/ and SLAVE NARRATIVES - as the goal of building a CONSCIOUSNESS BRIDGE between two distinct COLLECTIONS OF PEOPLE OF COLOR - with the hopes that the "AMERICAN CONTAINERIZED BLACKS" would one day be the PRIMARY LOBBYING FORCE of its "Historically White Controlled Government" - to ensure that AFRICA GETS A FAIR DEAL AT THE NEGOTIATING TABLE IN AMERICA. There is no need for any "Black American" to pretend that HE IS AN AFRICA. BUT - what we just saw in the way of the "PURPOSEFUL FILTERING OF THE MOLESTATION OF NATIONS OF COLOR" is a gross betrayal at the "Racial Level", proving that NATIONALISM proves to be a stronger bond than SKIN COLOR.
I do enough background research in order to do TRIANGULATION - comparing multiple information sources, allowing me to approximate THE TRUTH.
