Advertisers Shifted $1.5 Billion From TV to Digital Year-Over-Year Report  

WSJ By : NATHALIE TADENA

Digital ad spending increased 16% in the the U.S. between October and June, as the medium continues to capture market share from television and other traditional media categories, according to new data from Standard Media Index.

SMI, which tracks 80% of national U.S. agency spending, estimates that digital ad spending from October through June was up $3 billion compared to the year-ago period, with about $1 billion in “organic” growth, meaning it wasn’t at the expense of any other media segment’s budget. - Referenced Article


The Michael Vick Madness  

eNewsReference.com By : Staff Reporting

You know it is easier for White convicted felons to get a job over college educated Black men in some communities in America. Vick bashing is a small microcosm of thousands of Afro-American men presentenced in grade school before they've committed a crime. And heaven forbid if they commit a crime they receive a far longer sentence and perpetual condemnation in our society after they've long served their sentence.

You can make a strong case that Vick's sports celebrity did not protect him, but worked against him, because it received national exposure and national condemnation from the most powerful animal advocacy groups in the world. If he was Billy Bob fighting dogs behind his trailer park he would've received probation and a little community service.

Let's be clear, fighting dogs is wrong and it is morally unjust, but there comes a time when we'll have to let Michale Vick go free.


Reflecting On Clarence Thomas Comments About An African American President  

eNewsReference.com By : Staff Reporting

Let’s forget that a Supreme Court Justice alleging the sitting President “approved by the elites and the media” are both African American.

Try to ignore the sitting President of the United States previous comments about this particular Supreme Court Justice and his qualifications for being on the high court stating, “I would not have nominated Clarence Thomas. I don’t think that he was a strong enough jurist or legal thinker at the time for that elevation.”

Now of course these are words from a candidate hoping to get elected and appealing to his base. He had even harsher words for President George W. Bush.

When Justice Clarence Thomas asserts that a President is in office because he was approved by the elites and the media, "because anybody that they didn’t agree with, they would take apart,” he is alleging a moral depravity in our democratic process.

Justice Clarence Thomas should’ve been pressed on identifying this elite group he’s referring to. In the Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, in which Thomas was in the majority, some have argued that too much influence by corporate elites could dictate elections.

Indeed President Barack Hussein Obama’s election drew overwhelming participation from people who were not previously involved in the electoral process, white single women, voters with just a high school education, the youth vote, Latinos and African Americans. Folks who are in a lot of ways disenfranchised and considered the 47% of Americans who are not contributing their fair share.

If President Obama didn’t have the grassroots mobilization and the dollars from millions of single digit donors behind his campaign I find it hard to believe the media would’ve given him the coverage he needed to defeat more established candidates in 2008.

Aren’t all Presidents approved by the elite in this country? Before you have your first nationally televised debate with the opposing party(ies) don’t you have to be “clean”, as Vice President Biden put it in 2007. Every candidate have to meet the smell test not just African American candidates.

 Q: Did you ever expect to see an African American president during your lifetime?

THOMAS: Oh yeah, I guess I’ve always thought there would be black coaches, heads of universities — maybe again as I said I’m naïve but the thing I always knew is that it would have to be a black president who was approved by the elites and the media because anybody that they didn’t agree with, they would take apart. And that will happen with virtually — you pick your person, any black person who says something that is not the prescribed things that they expect from a black person will be picked apart. You can pick anybody, don’t pick me, pick anyone who has decided not to go along with it; there’s a price to pay. So, I always assumed it would be somebody the media had to agree with.

Q: Have you ever met President Obama, have you had a chance to speak with him?

THOMAS: No. Well, in passing more he had the chance to visit the court, it’s not like…I don’t do a lot of Washington and I’m not into politics, so I mean there’s not that many occasion. I shook hands with him at the inauguration to be polite but I’ve had no in depth conversation.

Joe Biden Knows How To Laughs At The GOP  

Wall Street Journal By : Staff Reporting

The Vice President captured the spirit of the Democrat's angst against the GOP and their positions on everything from Health Care, sanctions on Iran and the economy in his debate with Congressman Paul Ryan.

Throughout the Vice Presidential Debate Joe Biden laughed and used the word "facts" to contrast his positions with Mitt Romney.

We emphatically wrote in February of last year, "Why Not Joe Biden?"

When America reexamines Biden’s record among a limited Democratic field and weigh what some consider to be his biggest flaw, speaking his mind and being frank with us, then I think they’ll give him second look.

I applaud Biden’s response to folks popping the question on his decision to run. How can there be any good reasons to not run. He’s been in politics his entire life. He’s built a working class brand. During the 2012 campaign it felt reassuring when he put it bluntly, "I've got a little bumper sticker for you: Osama bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive."

I don’t know how the race would’ve turned out if he didn’t condense the message in stark terms at a time when it was close and America was really grappling with the unemployment numbers and what Obamacare was.

Look for the Republican Primary to get very ugly  

eNewsReference.com By : Staff Reporting

This the Republican Primary race will get very ugly before it gets better. President George W. Bush's campaign got very ugly against Senator John McCain in South Carolina and they spared nothing against then Senator John Kerry in their 'Swift Boat' attacks. Look for Jeb Bush to go on the attack against Donald Trump and for Trump's team to return in kind.

I am reminded of President Obama's campaign collecting enough artillery from the primary and using Newt Gingrich's attacks against Mitt Romney in the General election. The host plaintively ask Newt Gingrich, "are you calling Mitt Romney a liar?" and Ginrich immediately responding "yes," by that time the race was battle worn and Romney got very tough against Gingrich in Florida.

Donald Trump is using his significant media exposure to mercilessly launch a character attack against Jeb Bush at a signficant cost-savings to the billionaire. Where Jeb Bush comes up short in personality he'll have to spend to tarnish 'The Donald'. It will be hard to do considering the fact that everyone knows Trump was liberal, he practiced shady business deals, he hasn't been so kind on women...it'll be interesting to see what's in Bush's arsenal.

President George W. Bush was a street brawler in comparison to his brother's kind-hearted nature. He appeard to be cringing on stage in fearing what the Donald was going to dish out. Bush's campaign can start by airing all of the promises issued by Trump with very little details.

Candidate dropping out of the race will have to immediately throw their support to Jeb as opposed to holding endorsements until the very end. Carly Fiorina would be the most formidable attack dogs against the Donald giving her business pedigree and her ability to put a face to all of the off color comments Trump has made against women and minorities.

Stay tuned.

Would be a perfect capstone of this summer if actual nuclear war broke out on the Korean peninsula while we were running Trump's speech.

After harsh reaction from Twitter he deleted the comments and stated:

You're right, Twitter. Joke was tasteless. Meant it as absurd, but withdrawn.
