With a little over a week to go until Election Day we got treated to a surprise voter-mobilization video from Black Eyed Peas & Jennifer Hudson. Video kicks off with powerful Biden speech and morphs in to modern remake of classic tune “Where is the love.”
How this song—co-written by Justin Timberlake and will.i.am, among others—didn’t win a GRAMMY in 2004 is beyond me. Song’s lyric-writing was fully prophetic for 2020.
Make your plan to vote and send a message to those who seek to divide us with hate. 🎹

Will Pollock is a perpetually crabby New York City escapee based in Midtown Atlanta. He’s a freelance multimedia journalist, media analyst and author of two books (award-winning Pizza for Good & Leaving Triscuit), with more on the way.
In 2001, Will earned his Masters from The Medill School of Journalism, graduating with highest honors from the magazine sequence. As permanent member of Journalism’s National Honors Society, he’s been active in monitoring, writing and blogging about media and journalism ever since he graduated.
Obsessed with good storytelling and journalistic excellence, Will uses snark, humor and reason to distill dumb shit and make it fun. He’s a seeker/maker of non-consensus news, and helps you cure crankies by finding the nut in every story.
As for-profit media continues to fail us, it’s more important than ever to find reliable sources. Authentic storytelling exists—you just have to look for it. On this blog you’ll get ideas, not ideology. Sass with class. Reporting with rapport. Evidence with a touch of evil. You get the idea.
Support independent authors, writers, artists, journalists and professionals. Buy a book, leave a review, start a discussion. Show solidarity so that we can achieve greater balance and, in the end, learn more.
