AMEN. AMEN. AMEN to your “Why BET Sucks” article (3/8)!

In your litany against BET’s broadcast practices, you touched every single annoying aspect about that network that I’ve been complaining about for the past year-and-a-half or so. Have I ever written directly to BET to address my problems with them? No, but thanks to your well thought out, thorough piece, I and others have vicariously made our opinions known. Ms. Bass, I cannot emphasize enough to you how deeply you struck a nerve with me, some of my co-workers, friends, and even some listeners of the WOL News-talk Radio station!

In case anyone’s really interested in experiencing fascinating, absorbing, educational programming, tune in to WHMM-TV. This station has the sort of stellar lineup most of us seem to crave, albeit local and of no real use to those people living outside Metro D.C. I’m all for donating money to keeping them on the air forever. Looks like that is what it’s going to take to get a real black television station off and running.
