Real Times Media. Black media monopolizers.

It's so sad to watch black media follow half-ass, the lead of mainstream (white) media in America. So when Real Times Media scooped up the historic Chicago Defender a while back I could already see it coming.

The worst yet though, is me reading through the Michigan Chronicle and the New Pittsburgh Courier and seeing the same "editorial" article on both sites, just reworked (i.e. changing every reference of "Detroit" to "Pittsburgh" in order to fit the local audience). Oh, that's just brilliant. lol.

Here's the Michigan Chronicle's version and here's the New Pittsburgh Courier's version. It's a sad day in the world of black media in America as more and more media outlets turn from the grassroots to the corporate ladder.
