bet’s sad attempt to clean up

March 17, 2010

Should we call the bullsh*t police on BET President Debra Lee, or give her credit for hosting an event seeking to improve Black women’s image? The “Leading Women Defined” get-together sponsored by BET sounds good, but as Newsone puts it: “Maybe if BET stopped enthusiastically airing and promoting things like ‘Frankie & Neffe’ or the ‘Tip Drill’ video, these ‘leadership talks’ wouldn’t be necessary! But why would BET disrupt their profit margins and viewership numbers when they can just throw together events like this and use them to talk out both sides of their mouth?”
