Smiley & West Radio Show Being Dropped by Media Outlets Around the Country

WBEZ-FM (91.5) has dropped the Smiley & West radio program, stating that the show lacked balance.  The show was hosted by Tavis Smiley and professor Cornel West, and was distributed by Public Radio International.  The show once aired in Chicago every Sunday at noon, and was c*t just two weeks ago.

Petitions have been circulating to call for PBS to reconsider its position, but it’s hard to tell how effective that might be.

A spokesman for the network had this to say:

“More importantly, the show had developed much more of an ‘advocacy’ identity, which is inconsistent with our approach on WBEZ. The goal is to present public affairs content that is reasonably balanced. We feel that Smiley & West had become a departure from this approach.”

Torey Malatia, president and CEO of Chicago Public Media, stated that the show was becoming too much like “Democracy Now” and not a fit with the station’s agenda:

“Our hosts choose material to inspire cross-cultural understanding and civic engagement, strictly operating under the mandate of public service. Even when our function is not a journalistic one, we recognize that appearing to take sides, or to prefer certain voices to others, will erode our value as a meeting place for all. We attempt to do all of this at a level of energy and creative influence that the visionaries of civic agency had written about since radio’s creation.”

Joe Zefran, a producer for the show, says that Smiley and West had a huge following in Chicago.  He noted that when the two had public gatherings, hundreds of people showed up and the two received a tremendous amount of support.  WBEZ is not the only station to k**l the show.  WBUR-FM in Boston said that the show was “too political,” and KWMU-FM and KMOJ-FM dropped the show, noting that their disagreements with President Obama had made them unpopular.

Do you agree with the decision to mute the voices of Tavis Smiley and Cornel West, or did they provide balance in a black community where journalists are afraid to question President Obama’s policies?

    Stop being sheep, zombies, hypnotized Stepford Wives people! I support President Obama and I think that overall he has done a good job as president, but you all actors if he is 18 or that he is flawless! How is it being an Uncle Tom if you want to hold a president accountable for at least a dressing all the many many many many problems the black race suffers from on a daily basis? An Uncle Tom’s hates black people and wants black people to fail as a race. President Obama is not above reproach! And stop reminding us that he is not the black people’s president. I know that he is not the black people’s president but he is also the President for black people too! Tavis and Dr. West are trying to help their race! Who else have any prominence is doing that?

    I hate this is happening to them because of politics. They dropped the show in Dallas too. Everyone who thinks they spent an hour beating up on the president is wrong. They talk about all types of things that concern the society. Their show is 100x more enlightening that Sharpton’s show or any of the others on the air now that are nothing more than bottom feeders. It’s great to hear black voices that are not just White House operatives. I’m glad (for now) I can still hear it on-line.

    Both Smiley & West are very fortunate in that they do not depend upon Black-America’s support. These are Educated Black Men whom “The Soul-Brother’s dis, and fail to copy. Mr. Obama on the other-hand, sings Al Green, and he’s one-of-us! Here’s what we all can admit to: If Mr. Obama had come to us through the Republican Party…Hilary Clinton would be President now! We voted 96% Democrat in 2008. Then Mr. Obama tells us: “Be patient…I must be President to all Americans.” Really, there is no other class of Americans like us. With our History. None. Or, our rates of imprisonment, Homicide, g******e,(Planned Parenthood,) and un-employment >45%; and we should get-in-line? Get real! Mr. Obama.

    People, why waste your time replying to deranged Caucasoids, pretending to be black, they don’t want you to vote at all, and want you to be as stupid, and illiterate as they are. I won’t dignify them by speaking their names, but you know exactly whom I speak of. I use to respond to these morons, until I realized that that was exactly what they wanted. Now, back to the above issue. I am so glad that Tavis, and West have been fired from this station. Now I hope that that every other station follow this lead. I also hope that Boyce, gets fired from Syracuse university. These three bums, are nothing but stooges, and uncle toms, and should not be able to feed their filthy faces. You can follow these a******s if you want, but if Mitt Romney wins because some of you didn’t vote, you will only have yourselves to blame.

    it would be nice for us our prominent african american brothers and sisters to keep in mind that the powers that be are waiting to have something to accuse the first african american president of. we have to be careful not to be unwitting participants. i know the president may not have done a whole lot so far to address some of the most pressing issues in our community but he can not be seen as being partial to anyone group, especially his own racial group that would be another reason to accuse.
    here is what i think will happen. i believe he will get a second term, and the last two years of his term we will see him pass legislation and executive orders that benefit his people after the flesh. For after all the haters wont be able to do a thing about it and he wont even care, cause h**l be on his way out…Thats what i believe…

    When you do not own control and operate your own media you can easily be silenced – the plugged pulled. Black America is naive to feel President Obama will or desired to do anything for them. They do not have the organizational acumen, the money, or the clout in the eyes of the Democratic or Republic machines as the homosexual lobby or the Jewish lobby, or the pro-abortion lobby, or Monsanto etc. Power only responds to power or perceived power. The Black American vote is a given for the Democrats and they no longer need to cater to the needs of the Negro Black Black American Civil Rights movement! The homosexual movement, pro abortion movement, and other ethnic groups such as Spanish speaking groups are getting all the attention and honorable mentions by the Democrats and the Half White Kenyan American President who basically serves the power brokers of the ‘status quo’ as all figure heads do.

    Reading many of the intellectually challenged Pro-Obama postings reminds me of Harriett Tubman receiving an award just before her d***h for engineering the underground railroad.

    Upon accepting the award Ms. Tubman reportedly said, “…I could have freed throusands more, if I could just have convinced them that they were enslaved”. The U.S. Government’s own quality of life and standard of living statistics graphically show that Black Americans regardless of educational level, skills attainment and/or accomplishments will make on average 68 cents for everyone dollar a white counterpart will make, even with less education and skill qualifications. The 6 wealthiest white males in American… 5 have no college education and have a combined net wealth thats 2-times the net wealth of all 36 million Black Americans combined.

    President Obama’s declaration of being the President of All Americans, assumes that in America’s racialized society, operating in the framework of structured racism, those Americans once considered 3/5′s of a human being were elevated to full acceptance of being equal humans. Never mind every quality of life and standard of living statistics graphically illustrates otherwise. Black Americans are distinctly, economically disadvantaged because we are economically deprived… meet Mr. James Jim Crow, Esquire… Whether it is Tavis or Cornel that speaks to the irrefutable, horrofic statistics within the historical context of Black Americans, they should be heard and intelligent minds should listen and then weigh their stated positions against your own research. However, it is easy to understand why we Black folks remain intellectually challenged, the shackels of slavery were taken off our wrists and ankles and placed around our minds.

      I see that your have done your Home work. Another key category that judges the health of a Nation or a people is the PPI(Purchasing Power Index) which shows that as all Americans that have to work for a living, their buying power is eroding fast( Singapore, Sweden, and Norway have much better QOL/PPI indexes.)I truly believe in some of Jeffersonian Principles that required a redress of the govt buy its people, esp its most needy and the one’s that pay the most. I was recently told buy a Negro friend that “black people need to shut up cause we” ain’t paying so what do we expect from the Prez or anybody in office, state, county or city”( and black folks whatever state u live in, u better take note on who’s running that place more that the Presidency because as Tip O’Neil once said” all politricks are local.”) We are never to become equal in a society where one single entity( Caucasian males) has a true fear of the black man( they aint worried about sistas cause they will not fuss about the cave boy,as long as they can get what they think are good positions( well downsizing got a lot of all of us)a Coach purse and their hair and nails done its Purro)) and for what, they hold all the cards(Foundations of the society.) I mean really? As for Tavis and West, The Boule’ I’m sure helped to get their voices of dissent were muted, totally against Jeffersonian Principles( I guess Fredrick Douglass should have kept quite after Prezez Taney, Clay, Polk and Fillmore all lied eh?)

      Osiris, what are West and Smiley doing for the poor? How are they helping? Why have they not been on this crusade prior to Obama turning them down for meeting with them? We know that there is rampant poverty among Blacks, however, I don’t see, read or hear these two men helping the less fortunate. They have no foundation, no mentoring programs, no education programs…only to get on a bus (which I might add fuel cost alone could feed thousands of hungry children in America) and put down the job the president is doing and tell folks not to re-elect him. I might add, what is their plan for helping the less fortunate…same as Rommey’s…they don’t have one. Why not offer solutions? We already know the problem. It is not invisible.

        Carolann, It’s funny how you attack the ones who want to bring up the issue of poverty but you give a pass to the one who is in a better position than any one of us to do something about it. You forgot to mention that just like Romney, Obama doesn’t have a plan for the poor either. He doesn’t even say the word poor in his speeches. Yet your tactic is to k**l the messengers. And fyi, Smiley does have a mentoring program and foundation. Do your research first. I don’t know about Dr. West, but so many people have come out to say they were mentored by the brother, he doesn’t need a formal program if he doesn’t have one.

    I am so glad to hear this…4 years ago whe Pres. Obama could not attend the State of the Union of Blacks, sponsored by Tavis…and wanted to send his wife, Michelle instead…Tavis never forgave him…he had a hissy fit and started downing Obama, right then and lost his gig with Tom Joyner and we (the Phila listeners were so glad). I cannot stand Cornell because he thinks he knows everything that Black people should do and both of them gone should be a wake-up-call to both of them to repent and start anew with a softer heart..I never see a soft heart in either…good riddens!

      Funny… I seem to remember Tavis Smiley announcing he was leaving the TJMS and Tom Joyner begging him to stay. And what day did he have this hissy fit on? When Obamites started whining about a “hissy fit” I went into the show’s archives and listened to all of his commentaries at the time and I didn’t find one hissy fit. But I’n not surprised. Obamites tend to be very dramatic.

      Now when you say they need to have a soft heart, I’m assuming you mean a soft heart for Obama. If you ever actually listened to their show (which I’m sure you never do) you would know that they have a lot of compassion for Obama. But frankly I hope they save their soft hearts for the poor as Jesus would do. Jesus favored the poor over Pharaoh.

      Tom, if they were getting rid of shows on PBS because they were boring, they wouldn’t have a show to broadcast. Frankly it was just the opposite. Their show became to disruptive the the status quo. Obama supports PBS and the powers that be feared too many progressive voices like Dr. West around election time would make the president uncomfortable. Why do you think they compared them to Democracy Now? They were afraid of losing their funding. And if you’re already replacing them, you better pick another name. Don Lemon isn’t working for PBS money. Smiley can make it work because he owns the show and can find corporate sponsors. There aren’t too many others that would go through the trouble of doing an entire show that advocates for poor blacks.

    Typically, I am for people expressing or challenging injustice. IMHO this is not what Tavs and West was doing. This is clearly a personal vendetta of Tavis, whom I never liked. I almost felt for him when I heard what hs father did, but he is our of control in terms of President Obama. President Obama tried to work with Tavis, Tavis was to high minded and disrespectful to POTUS and FLOTUS. Who in the h**l does Tavis think he is. The President was unable to make it and graciously extended his help mate and Tavis act like our black Queen was not good enough. So then he solicits Cornel, whom I used to admire as we’ll as many others in my circle – not any more. Then he thought he could trap Minister Farrakhan and Michael Eric Dyson. Tavis does not hold a candle to POTUS and he was directly disrespectful. It is one thing to fight to the d***h for blatant racism, fraud and injustice. It is another thing to denigrate our leader because your feelings have been h**t because be was busy running this country under immense stress to meet your personal agenda. POTUS tried, Tavis is inane. While, I am never joyful about people being targets or losing jobs without valid justification, I think Tavis is wrong. His record is proving he is a Bully and can’t get along with most, while using the uninformed minds and pockets to line his coffers. What did he give on the poverty tour instead of taking from the barebones of what many of us have, perhaps he needs to repent of using his own people. Frankly, it is sad all around that blacks in the 21st century are still so evil and divided against each other.

      Black people should also wake up to why Boyce Watkins has so much hate for President Obama and boycott his a*s as well.

      For those who wonder why Boyce has so much hate for Obama, it’s not about Obama’s lack of attention to black people.

      It’s personal with Boyce, started when Boyce attacked Bill Oreily for the lynching statement in reference to Michele Obama. Oreily put so much pressure on the president at the Syracuse Universit to fire Boyce and he is still upset over the incident.

      Boyce is upset at President Obama for not speaking out on his behalf and to this day he still holds a grudge against the Obama’s.

      I’m really getting tired of hearing this urban legend that TS has some personal vandetta against POTUS. Most folks can’t even tell you the full story of what they continue to regurgitate but use this event to spew their hatred of Tavis Smiley. If you want to hate the man just say so!You don’t need to reference any false points of hate to effectively hate the man. Just do it. Long before Obama announced he was running for president he said he’d push for an agenda that addressed the concerns of black folks and have it in place by the time both parties chose their nominee. That was in 2006. Obama didn’t want to be bothered with black folks so he avoided talking about black issues. That’s why he didn’t want to go to Smiley’s forum. But Obama spoke by satellite at Smiley’s form in 2009 when he was president! So why do you say it’s personal? You’re just repeating the same nonsense you heard from someone else. The truth is Obama junkies need to discredit everyone who doesn’t worship the man as they do. Their philosophy is if you don’t love this man something must be seriously wrong with you. Smiley and West are right to hold Obama’s feet to the fire. Thank God these two have a backbone and not just looking to crawl into bed with these politicains like all the other black so-called leaders. d**n their enemies that want to silence them.

      You know that statement that has been hanging around the black community forever, ” blacks won’t stick together”, no time in history has this been more important than now. This is what the discussion is about, not someone’s right to say something, of course we have the right. What right we don’t have is working against the advancement of black people. Any thinking person should be able to discern that this President is no ‘Clarence Thomas’ and has done absolutely nothing to hinder the progress of blacks. Until he does that, I’m sure our lessons in sell outs will galvanize us to change things.

      I personally love seeing that black person, Barack Obama, with the most powerful position in the world with that powerful pin in his hand. I see him through the black boy’s eye, without the diminishing statements of grown -up blacks who should know better. I can the children thinking I can be anything I want to be.

      I’m old enough to remember how the black ministers and some other unthinking blacks spoke out against Martin Luther King, Jr. They talked about him too, yes they did, and they are forgotten, MLK, Jr. lives on. Keep on keeping on Barack Obama, you have made most of us proud. Obama/Biden 2012.

    They (the radio station) know what they are doing, and they want to clear the minds of Blacks, who are still not sure, if they want to vote or not.

    I keep telling y’all this is a game, and now the station MUST adhere to the policies of making sure O’Drama gets ‘selected’. The Majority of so-called Black radio stations will drink O’Drama’s bath water; therefore, they want to make sure he’s clean and rinsed off before voter day Tuesday!

        Third, if he was a REAL president, he would’ve gotten rid of bushboy’s appointees, but he left them on his payroll!!! This is NEVER brought up.

        Last, but not least. HE’S NOT THE MOST POWERFUL MAN ON EARTH!!! If he was so powerful, how come he acts so WEAK when addressing the needs of BLACK PEOPLE!!!

        He so chicken-hearted, him and Michelle NEVER mention the names of Blacks, who were in the movment…NEVER. They use code words, and both of them are controlled. They (the elite), let him sing, while she shakes her behind in front of white boys!!!

        By the way, caucasoid gal, I ain’t voting for none of these puppets!!! I’m an independent thinker and voter…remember that!!!

        DON’T EVER DISRESPECT AGAIN BY CALLING ME A CAUCASOID!!!
