A bitch is pretty damned good at avoiding entertainment that is going to insult the hell out of me and make my ‘fro hurt.
I have high blood pressure and, even though ‘tis under control, I try to limit the number of times per day I’m exposed to shit that works my last nerve.
Anyhoo, the other day Brother Rob sent me an email to alert me to Pat Buchanan’s latest public display of rancidity. Having already accidentally exposed myself to a freakish dismissal of slavery aired on 105.7 The Point’s morning show (using some listener story about a black child who dressed as a “happy slave” for Halloween…so see, some black people have a sense of humor about it why can’t you?) ...Lawd, have mercy... I knew it wouldn’t be wise to test my pressure for at least 24 hours.
Shit, all I wanted was a little Rage Against the Machine to jump start my morning…but I should have know better than to stay on that radio station once the on-air talent came on. The second they started talking, a bitch detected the distinct accent of an ig’nant asshole following the offensive formula radio stations have determined to appeal to straight white men between the ages of 14 and 24.
permission to be ig'nant/bigotted/vile + rock music = listeners
A bitch used to sell radio, so I get that shit.
What I don’t get is why MSNBC is applying that same formula (minus the rock music) to their political programming.
The cable networks seem to be in a race to see who can claim to have the most rancid conservative commentator…
…and MSNBC just took the lead with Pat Buchanan.
Hell, Buchanan has been an ig’nant racist misogynist longer than Glenn Beck has been alive!
He’s so rancid...
And the chil'ren asked "How rancid is he?!?"
... he's so rancid, he makes CNN’s insistence on paying Bill I like to ponder the benefits of killing all black babies Bennett look weak as a motherfucker.
And no one’s even talking about Bill O’Reilly or that dude on CNN who is scared damn near to death of Latinos.
I just don’t get it.
When I sold radio one thing was clear…straight white men between the ages of 14 and 24 are loyal as hell listeners and they have little to no spending power.
Oh, there are bitnesses that need to target them, but not as many as need to target women between the ages of 25 and 54. Thus, despite the huge ratings and impressive loyalty, we often ended up selling stations like 105.7 The Point at a discount.
Now, that might work with a radio station that’s part of a bundle due to the massive consolidation of ownership…but I’m pretty sure television networks need to keep their appeal broad so they can make the case to advertisers that they (the network) deliver lots and lots of viewers.
But Pat Buchanan doesn’t appeal to normal people. Have you seen him? Ain’t no way in hell he’s pulling in women between the ages of 25-54!
Maybe he’s there to appeal to some segment some consultant said MSNBC just had to start appealing to.
Mayhap those “traditional Americans” Buchanan claims are losing “their” country?
But a bitch has news for MSNBC.
There’s another formula that y’all need to keep in mind.
If the percent rancidity of Buchanan (R/B) exceeds the percent of liberal fantabulousness of Rachel Maddow (LFoRM), television sets tuned in to MSNBC will begin to pump out the stank of bullshit.
% RB > LFoRM = BS
And this non-traditional angry black bitch between the ages of 25 and 54 doesn't tolerate stank...
