“Nothing travels faster than light, with the possible exception of bad news” - Douglas Adams

[COMMENT]The [George Zimmerman] trial is a complete media created hype. Every radio station and every show has talked about it. [Sean Hannity] even had an interview with him and that interview was played in open court as part of the case. It's about race, period. There are a lot of people in this world, politicians especially that want to be able to divide people for there own agenda, and demonetization of the right. It's race baiting. There are thousands of cases all over this country everyday, even down the street from you at your local courthouse that are about people being convicted of murder using race as the reason for it. A few years ago I was on a jury that convicted two gang members in a twin murder trial. Ever heard about that? These two guys drove up and down a street and shot a guy they thought was a gang member. Turns out he wasn't. Glad to see those a-holes go to jail for a long time. But soo what? There are hundreds if not thousands of these cases everyday. The media sets up these kind of race based stories because they think it gets ratings, it does. Turns out Radio and TV are in the advertising business. If you are sucked into this kind of thing your not paying enough attention. You are being manipulated. Props to [Hugh Hewitt] at KRLA who has established a Zimmerman free zone. Hugh went on and on about how it's a waste of airtime.... "there is something wrong with you if you think this is important". I

[RADIO]Radio this week is so unlistenable with some exceptions. I have been turning on the classical station to just take a breath from all the horrible news mixed in with almost every host obsessed with the Zimmerman trial. One exciting thing was [Mark Levin's] announcement of his new book, The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic. Mark explained a way that we can go around Congress to change our future. He said that Washington will not change themselves. A little known part of article 5 in the Constitution gives back power to the states and takes away power from Congress to amend the Constitution. I think Mark is the smartest host out there and it's like a college course listening to him.

Then one interesting interview on public radio's great show Marketplace with Ted Sarandos, chief content officer at Netflix. He talks about what Netflix is up to and their strategy. They have a new show, that was created for Netflix called "Orange is the New Black" and just started Wednesday night. You can listen to the 4 1/2 minute story:

"Doesn't Zimmerman look like [Chaz Bono?]" - [Dennis Miller]

[PODCASTS][John Lovitz] of SNL fame who runs and owns the Jon Lovitz Comedy Club in Universal City has started a video cast network. His first two interviews are with [Sam Ruben], Entertainment reporter from KTLA TV and then with [Dana Carvey] who I'm sure I don't have to explain. It's on YouTube for now and I think Jon is working on putting it on his own website. The interview with Dana is great and it's fantastic to see that chemistry between them back in action.

[HEARD THIS]Danny was at 97.1 back in the day. Not looking too good these days. Last time I saw him he was all musclebound. Age is creeping up.

Dr. Wachs met up with Bonaduce while on her annual cruise – this time to Alaska – with listeners. Wachs and her group enjoyed the opportunity to sit at the captain’s table, get a private tour of the bridge and more. She says of meeting Bonaduce, “We were happy to know we were mutual fans. LOL!!!”
