We hear it said of an ugly guy, “He has a face made for radio”.
Woopie Goldberg has performed brilliantly as an actor in television and in movies. Her personal commentary however, has been nothing you couldn’t hear at the espresso and chi tea bar in any local natural foods store any day of the week. Hence it is no surprise that her radio show is being axed. I believe she still has a future in acting. Therein she has talent.
There remains a significant part of society that can’t seem to understand how radio is a business (the business of selling advertising) and that in business you must have something to offer that people, you know, want.
Hint: If you have no respect for those who made it big in the business, you just might be on the wrong path. “I’m gonna be just the opposite of that really, ultra successful guy” might not be the best business plan. Success, one would think, is the best teacher.
And here’s a hint just especially for those on the Left: We’ve all heard your message every day for our whole lives, as long as we can remember. You’ve gotten your message out, and that is your problem. A lot of people are sick of hearing it because most of it has something to do with how wrong, greedy, stupid, evil, and endangered we are– the air we breathe is killing us, the food we eat is killing us, oil is killing us, a shortage of oil is killing us, farming is killing us, starvation is killing us, fat is killing us, dieting is killing us, carbs are killing us, disease is killing us, antibiotics, vaccines, and the drug companies are killing us, freedom and prosperity are especially killing us, poverty is killing us, the good economy is killing us but really the economy sucks, terrorists are killing us (but it’s our fault) and the war against terrorists is killing us, and everything, absolutely everything, is killing women and children, the elderly and the minorities the hardest– and how some form of socialism (government-enforced coercion) is the answer to absolutely every problem, real or imagined.
Does that about sum it up? Who needs to tune into a radio show to hear that when we hear it everywhere else every day?
More-of-the-same day in and day out nagging and finger pointing and blaming America and our Liberty for the world’s problems isn’t something a lot of people are going to pay money to have broadcast in their name. But you don’t, and won’t, get it anyway.
