“Real journalism is publishing something someone else does not want published – the rest is just public relations.”
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.
The format of the show is simple five topics a week with 5 minutes devoted to each topic, and a close by each individual member featuring a verbal shot of their own choosing.
This episode of the Firing squad features our ongoing update on the Mike Brown Jr. situation. From there we slip back to our normal grind and check out the beef between Jim Jones and Dame Dash. Is Dame as shiesty as Jim says or was it a business misunderstanding?
From there we take a look at the beef between Floyd Mayweather and 50 Cent. Is this is childish as things can get between two grown men? How important is literacy? Were their attacks below the belt?
We also take a look at the Ice Water challenge for ALS, and ponder when exactly you should eat your fries if you are taking them to go. All this, and much more, on the greatest show on Earth. The Firing Squad
