The Word Network, Sues Sirius Satellite Radio for Racial Discrimination
Ok I think this is the biggest joke going but it is for real, here is the link to the official press release
Here are some from it..
The Word Network, a mainstream media broadcaster for African-American ministries and gospel music to millions in the United States and across the world, sued Sirius Satellite Radio today, alleging racial discrimination and breach of contract over its decision to cancel their contract. Sirius dropped The Word Network from its programming in mid-September despite backing from members of Congress, African-American religious leaders, and tens of thousands of listeners and other interested Americans.
I posted info on this back Aug 12th and it is still going on..
Jesse Jackson is currently the host of The Word NetworkÃ‚Â’s Rainbow Push with Jesse Jackson which broadcasts African-American ministries, gospel music and religious family programming....
Update - I got an email after my post of this story today, from an anonymous email. This email had a copy of the official court paper work on this matter. Orbitcast also has this posted, I do not know if the emailer got if from Orbitcast or is from the same anonyamous source, but one thing I can tell you is that the email came from the same IP address that sent me a nasty email about my first post on this topic back in Aug. You can read the court documents here. (pdf)
