“Real journalism is publishing something someone else does not want published – the rest is just public relations.” George Orwell
With so much drama in the world today in our communities on both macro and micro levels, it’s always strange to see the news or people that claim to be journalists talking about all kinds of silly things and never what’s going on. The Firing Squad is here to take aim at all that is wrong with the world, starting with our own communities. Three men of color with no censor and no objectives but truth, justice and common sense. Each episode will deal with hot-button issues with honesty, straight talk, and humor whenever possible . No personality is untouchable, and no one is spared the venom, or the praise whenever fit.
This week, the crew takes aim at another seemingly cheap ass move by Michael Jordan picking the new coach of the Bobcats.
We shout Lebron James and the Miami Heat for their freshly delivered championship. We take a nice wet shit on all of his haters that hate for no reason.
From there we ponder whether or not Rodney King has an actual legacy in the face of his recent death. Did the riots and ensuing destruction following the acquittal verdict cause any changes? What does his death actually mean?
Lil Wayne backed off beef with Pusha T. Was he scared? What does it mean? Why make a comeback song if you’re going to puss out. Was it the right thing to do? What does that mean for the rest of his crew? What do we think of Pusha T after squashing the beef following years of pursuing the one sided conflict?
Is Kevin Durant overrated? We ask the question after Lebron wiped the floor with Duke during the Finals. What is a great scorer in comparison to a great player?
All this and more on this week’s episode of the Firing Squad. Run for cover.
