Liberal slant?
14 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"...surprised a Liberal-slanted program like this showed all these academia to be so corrupt."???? One long-professor, who fancies himself a kind of old Black Panther Party-type guy: Professor Roland Sanders ?=? Cornel West They named this character based on real life person: Roland/Cornel(Colonel) West/Sanders The Prof. Winthrop character keeps complaining about Prof. Sanders making a rap album.

Cornel West released one ("Sketches of My Culture" with selections consisting of such things as Surprise "Spoken" "Word" backed by "tracks") of a number of CDs, which from the perspective of an outsider looking in towards what "Rap CDs" consist of, one of these releases might be misconstrued as an attempt of cashing in one's academic credibility in order to release a "Rap" "CD"... considering people in this country cash in what little credibility anyone can ever truly have in order to have their name on a published "tell all" book or interview.

Thank goddog, all this Old Media will eventually be replaced by the internet and digital releases (&NEW MEDIA Blogs/Social Networks) which will surely become even a stronger bastion of credibility and verifiable facts as well as other information of the same ilk! More to the Point about the Racial Politics, as if anyone is still listening after those two words are uttered in any discussion of Mass Media. of this Episode in regards to the Power of Naming. Effectively the "artists" who created this episode are making a subliminal/inside joke comparing a University Professor at Princeton University to the guy who started KFC... bigoted?, racist? Ricky Gervais once was quoted on SNL: "It's funny... because it's racist." From the Show, and I quote: This is what passes for scholarship in this country? So you don't think popular culture's fair game? Well, Mark's is the worst kind of pop literary analysis. Pathetic attempt to synthesize high and low culture.

Wouldn't butter your parsnips." The Old World continues to laugh at the New World, and the spoils go to the Austrailian (except for the Aboriginines)
