“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 week’s episode of the Firing Squad addresses the following topics:
1. Adrian Peterson ain’t the only one. is it time for Black people to stop giving ass whuppings?
2. Rick Ross announced a new album dropping in November. Do we care anymore?
3. Robin Thicke, under oath, said he had nothing to do with the creation of “Blurred Lines,” and that Pharell created the entire song. How does that make you feel
4. Mike Brown Jr. updates
5. Is Andre 3000 the most overrated rapper ever?
