“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.

From there we go to Pusha T, who despite years of baiting Lil Wayne for a battle now hides behind the “it was all the media defense.” Sure didn’t look like that was the media’s bicycle you were riding in that “Exodus” vid, but i dogress. Politically expedient or straight sucker move?
Cam newton and the Jaguars got handled by the Giants. We laugh heartily.
Jay-Z and wife Beyonce fundraising for Obama raised four million dollars. Is it a step forward in the legitimizaing of Hip-Hop? Is it a step in the right direction? Should Hip-Hop be involved in politics. We examine.
Is Entenmann’s the king of the grocery store snackery? Lousiana Crunchcake is the goat. That is all.
All this and more, catch a hot one from The Firing Squad!
