You realize the efficacy of our media in times like these…

It is in times like these that I really miss Al Mascitti…  when you want comfort, truth, and real news, there is no where else to turn to… now, since he is gone.

We should be talking about how we need to bridge things and build together.  Al was good for that… Although known for bashing people who corruptly took advantage of little people, he was very even handed and would also bash those who tried to take the little people defense too far…

He was an eye on truth.  If you wanted to find out details gleaned from the breadth of the Internet which you didn’t have time to peruse, he was the only trusted source you could turn to…

With Al, a story had nothing to do with politics and everything to do with truth…  Where some on media are more concerned about spinning lies to create a certain “message”, Al was concerned with finding the “message” immersed in a sea of lies….

Today on WDEL, we hear no empathy about “Black Lives Matter”.  The answer why is obvious; to the financial management there…. black lives simply don’t. (Actions speak louder than words)

Instead you hear about the need for more police liberties…Callers insisting they should be able to randomly come into your home and arrest you if they think you are up to no good; without the need of any collaborating proof….

Obviously they are just fishing for bites now.. Completely oblivious that was why we became a nation back in 1776; because that was what the British were doing and we objected to it strenuously enough to suffer a new nation. Now, instead of restricting gun purchases, they recommend constricting everyone’s freedom formerly protected by the US Constitution…

And… no one calls in to object?  No one says anything contrary?  Making the subliminal message coming across the air being that this is what our country should be doing?…

But that is the opposite of what America is saying on social media. That is the opposite of what George W Bush and President Obama both said at the Dallas memorial for the fallen officers.  That is the exact opposite of what bosses all across this nation calling all their workers together, are saying to their staffs.. That is exactly opposite of what parents are telling their children….

Which is, that blacks, Hispanics, and whites are all the same… They start as kids, grow up, and eventually die.  They love, hate, feel the same honor and pride, no matter the color of their skin.

But if you look for that anywhere in corporately owned media… you can’t find it.. It is flat out not there…  Instead they fall back on tired old phrases.  Instead they retreat into the same 10 step plans.  Instead they resort to find one single difference and harp on that like it is the only thing that matters in the entire universe…..

Well, none of those things matter.  and WDEL, if that is your take on life, it follows that you no longer matter.For we have grown bigger as a nation.  We have grown better as a nation, and if we can’t find positives on our airwaves, only divisiveness and hate, we are picking up our shoes and moving elsewhere….

You once led the broadcasting field and dropped Rush Limbaugh substituting it local programming.  That is when I started listening…

You once had a great balance between Al and Rick… Sometimes they even agreed but often they differed; we still knew them both as great guys…

Now, you dropped investigating truth…. for another…. Oprah…..  Where there is no truth, there are no listeners.

Hint: there is a REASON Oprah is no longer on daytime TV….
