Recently there have been a lot of issues revolving around athletes and the medias coverage...whether it be Desean Jackson and his "gang affiliations"...Kobe and his "lack of support for Trayvon Martin" or Ray Rice and his sitaution with his NOW wife.So we've decided these issues are worthy of discussion.

Desean Jackson and the story that won't quit

We talked about the issues with Desean Jackson on the last joint, but we had some technical difficulties. Well...now that we're doing another show, the issues has still been lingering. Desean Jackson, now, a Washington Redskin still has a lot of the media questioning him, and, a couple of media personalities questioning the Eagles..but who's questioning the media and their handling of the situation?

Kobe Bryant and the New Yorker
So...recently a website I won't name but you can check the link (http://alturl.com/re4n2) ran a story in which they quoted Kobe Bryant from a piece in the New Yorker. (http://alturl.com/ornch  which you can't see unless you're a subscriber, and I hope you aren't a subscriber cuz that would make you a questionable individual) While I don't have enough characters to tell you what exactly Kobe said...you can check the quote, and based on that quote, the internet went nuts...including "black twitter" (that's the dumbest shit ever) We speak on this, and the new piece in the New Yorker (http://preview.alturl.com/f6otk)

Ray Rice
I don't have too much to say about the case, but I do have something to say about the media, and my guest will respond
