Comments for CohenConnect.com https://cohenconnect.com Honest, accurate & outspoken: Lenny's thoughts on this world of ours Thu, 24 Mar 2022 01:05:10 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=5.6.8 Comment on I got your book, Tom Cantor by Renee https://cohenconnect.com/2020/12/27/i-got-your-book-tom-cantor/#comment-1000 Thu, 24 Mar 2022 01:05:10 +0000 https://cohenconnect.com/?p=47769#comment-1000 Today this book arrived via the USPS to my home. I searched the internet to find out who is Tom Canter. The search brought me here. We could not have had two more different reactions to receiving the book.

My thought was, “Who would be so kind to share with me what was most precious to them especially in such a costly way?”. It was a simple book, plainly written. How could it have brought about such verbal venom from anyone? Is tolerance and acceptance for all or for the few?

Our thoughts and our words give others a window into our soul.

“President Trump granted a full pardon to Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., also known as “Lil Wayne.” Mr. Carter pled guilty to possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon, owing to a conviction over 10 years ago. Brett Berish of Sovereign Brands, who supports a pardon for Mr. Carter, describes him as “trustworthy, kind-hearted and generous.” Mr. Carter has exhibited this generosity through commitment to a variety of charities, including donations to research hospitals and a host of foodbanks. Deion Sanders, who also wrote in support of this pardon, calls Mr. Wayne “a provider for his family, a friend to many, a man of faith, a natural giver to the less fortunate, a waymaker, [and] a game changer.””

They knew that if he told the whole truth about the unjust and disastrous war he would be falsely labeled a Communist, suffer retaliation and severe backlash, alienate supporters and threaten the fragile progress of the civil rights movement.“King rejected all the well-meaning advice and said, ‘I come to this magnificent house of worship tonight because my conscience leaves me no other choice.’ Quoting a statement by the Clergy and Laymen Concerned About Vietnam, he said, ‘A time comes when silence is betrayal’ and added, ‘that time has come for us in relation to Vietnam.’“It was a lonely, moral stance. And it cost him. But it set an example of what is required of us if we are to honor our deepest values in times of crisis, even when silence would better serve our personal interests or the communities and causes we hold most dear. It’s what I think about when I go over the excuses and rationalizations that have kept me largely silent on one of the great moral challenges of our time: the crisis in Israel-Palestine.” […]

(2017 here; 2019: https://cohenconnect.com/2019/12/27/have-you-noticed-comcasts-christmas-gift-to-itself/)
I gave https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2020/12/2/gouging-the-viewer to Scott, about the company raising the prices of retransmission fees and its regional sports networks, and more. He wrote about the bottom line, but I got more specific: “Broadcast fees up almost 40%. Comcast owns the NBC & Telemundo stations. The regional sports fee is up 20% (though they rebated some when there were no sports due to COVID).”
WOULD LOVE TO KNOW how I can keep my internet, news channels, local stations (and local ABC doesn’t come in by antenna) and maybe HGTV, but I’ve been living without it for months.

But the airwaves belong to the public. TV stations have special responsibilities.” Yet rules were being loosened and I referred to that as, “You give them an inch and they ask for a foot!”https://twitter.com/feedbaylenny/status/951927920607531010I questioned whether Sinclair would keep its promise to keep local programming local and pay to carry unique events like the Mummers Parade on Philadelphia’s WPHL-17.On Jan. 27, I actually wrote, […]

I really do hope you’re doing well, as this tragic infused year is passing by I just thought that keeping up with an old favorite teacher that I’ve given a hard time would be fairly beneficial, as I am working on trying to restore bonds that’s been severed due to my incompetence.

Sinclair owns WXLV-45 (ABC affiliate) and also WMYV-48 (MyNetworkTV affiliate). Tribune owns WGHP-8 (Fox affiliate). I would expect one of those three to go, but the logo on Armstrong Williams’ website is for WCWG-20 (CW affiliate). Just last month, Hearst bought that station from Lockwood Broadcast Group, but it had already been operating the station under a shared services agreement. Hearst also owns the market’s NBC affiliate, WXII-12, making a duopoly. How any other owner would fit in, since Hearst just finished the sale and got a duopoly last month, is a mystery to me — unless The CW plans to change its affiliated station in the market. Note the station already has a good owner that puts a newscast on it, but nothing — not even public service — compares to money when it comes to broadcasting. (Also keep in mind, a month ago, Sinclair made a case to the FCC it should be able to own more than one of the top four stations in Harrisburg, Indianapolis and Gree…) […]
