I dig the sentiment - but with JC Watts as the mastermind it won't be fair and balanced news. What news is really fair and balanced though...

Anything that JC Watts is behind is a scary thought.

I understand that they might want to focus on issues that are more important to them. Just as Murdoch started FOX to focus on the Conservative perspective, they might want a different focus. Citizen had a thread the other month that compared the amount of press white victims like Natalie Holloway receive in comparison to black victims, and it was pretty staggering. I think that most news networks don't focus on the nitty gritty of the news enough, so I am very welcoming to other organizations who want to give it a shot. They couldn't be worse than MSN, CNN, and FOX! :)

I'm having a hard time understanding why this is necessary. What news that is only for the black community aren't we hearing? Do we want separate but equal, or do we want equality?
