Good!

I remember when he said something to the effect of "Men, if the david beckham underwear commercial made you excited slap yourself" or something to that effect, then tried to act like a true blue liberal when interviewing Spencer and the Alt Right.

Just another homophobic centrist. Never was a voice for black America.

Hopefully they replace him with that light skin chick from CNN thats dating Common.

Not suprised...

He is just not lead anchor material...

Don't nobody wanna hear about a frat every 5 seconds and for a guy his age he still seems to have a lot of maturing to do...

Tamron Hall?

Tamron would be a good choice, but if its truly a budget issue she would probably demand more $$ than him. She is most certainly a better journalist than him.

I just hate there is not a platform for news that directly effects the blk community.

I even stopped listening to TJMS to catch the live stream each morning.

Tamron would come with a bigger price tag but at the same time would increase viewership...

Something just ain't right about this one...

Why go to a two hour segment if viewership was dwindling?

TV1 has been struggling for a while now. Business owners are not supporting them like they do major networks.

This is bad.Also seems to be part of a pattern.Black presenters purged at MSNBC, Far to many Black Youtubers being flagged and suspended , Net Neutrality and now this.Seems extreme but Black voices discussing politics and outside the normal silliness are being silenced.

Which black youtuber has been flagged/suspended?

Tom Joyner mentioned a boycott of TVone this morning.
Seems like he is tired of the way Alfred is running TVone/RadioOne and others.

I'll never forget when he had this hit piece on Dr. Umar Johnson.



Fat sellout. Umar was right in EVERYTHING he said. He can grill Umar, but never held Hillary to task for one second for the super predators comment.

I'm glad TV One ended this embarrassment of a show.
