  • Jim Brown interviews disgraced quarterback Michael Vick, a repeat segment on Air Force's drone, and a interview with Chris Martin.

    Hmmmm an average show. I call them as I see them. This was pretty much a self-serving interview for disgraced NFL quarterback Michael Vick. Well despite his crimes for illegal dog fighting Vick seems to be reinstated by NFL.



    It's no surprise that on the heels of that news we got this propaganda piece for Vick with Jim Brown leading the charge. it's obvious as well that Vick isn't sorry for what he did but is only sorry that he was caught.



    That's pretty much all there is too it. Moving on to more propaganda we have a repeat segment on Air Force's drone used to deliver missiles and kills in Afghanistan and Iraq. This thing and many more like it cost taxpayers over eleven million dollars. However, that didn't stop the show from doing this propaganda piece. I mean a little balance would have been nice.



    They spend over nine minutes of the report on the positives and not even a minutes on the negatives-that the drone isn't fool proof and has caused the deaths of many Afghans in Afghanistan.



    Well I really didn't expect a real critical approach here.



    The last report was with Chris Martin of Coldplay. This interview I did like. It seems Martin is appreciative of his success and only other rockstars doesn't try to come across as douchebag.



    He is married to one of the most beautiful actresses I've seen in Gwyneth Paltrow. So he's doing very well for himself. They also talk about Coldplay and how they perform. It was a well done segment.moreless
