Has any one aels noticed that B.E.T. NIGHTLY NEWS HAS NOT BEEN AIRING??
Black Exploitation Television announced that its nightly news program would be cancelled some time ago. They are considering 5 minute segments of news in between music videos (what else). I suggest you support TV-One!
BET is geared towards music and rediculous television shows. Unfortunately, a lot of our young people feel that the news is "boring". Ratings suddenly plummet when the BET nightly news comes on. On top of that, they don't want young people getting any news anyways, so it works on both ends.
What's the world coming to?
WOW....that's interesting... I had not noticed, but this does not surprise me, as it's all by design.
I don't have the channel, but I thought it was coming back in October
They got rid of nightly news, yet they keep BET-UNCUT. A program that airs explicit rap videos while showing close ups of half naked black womens' bouncin butts while idiot wanna-be "thugs" rap to an over-used beat. However, as long as black people continue to watch and support it and allow their children to watch it, BET has no reason to cease showing these "poverty pimpin" sellout dumd-*** rap videos and 106 and park all day. It's about ratings. They give us what we want.
That's my "BIG" opinion.
THEY WILL EVENTUALLY SHUT DOWN BET...EVERYONE WILL GO TO MTV OR VH1.
I definately see that happening. The only way it won't happen is if they want to keep a channel (BET) that's completely devoted to dumbing our people down 24/7. With MTV, they will still have to keep the white shows airing in order to keep the white veiwers, and a lot of black folks won't watch that continuously like they watch BET. I think it's more of having the black and white version of music entertainment available to get their message across to whatever audience they target.
