Marc Lamont Hill says traditional media has an unconscious white bias and does not properly cover black issues, but he has a solution … a show called “Black News Tonight.”
Marc’s the host of the daily news show, which debuts Monday night on the Black News Channel, and he appeared Monday on “TMZ Live.” He says there’s a giant hole in the market when it comes to black issues — CNN, MSNBC, FNC, ETC, he says largely caters to white folks, so there’s a need to present issues and stories that directly impact the black community.
This is where it gets really interesting. Marc doesn’t think his show puts a wall up between black and white communities. Quite the opposite … he thinks black-focused media can help drive their stories to the mainstream and connect with both.
