The Daily Read: #StopMediatakeout2014

Are we seriously still this stupid in 2o14?


Ok, I can’t be the only person who thinks that MediaTakeout is either completely run by idiots OR is so smart that they want us to think they’re run by idiots. Either way, they still have an audience and people still buy into their BS. I am here to implore you to STOP THE MADNESS!!

What madness, you ask? Well, let’s start with their enraging perpetuation of ridiculously and naturally unobtainable standards for women. Regardless of whether or not you like her, there is no denying that Rihanna is pretty easy on the eyes. So why the HELL does MediaTakeout need to make it a point to constantly talk about (in their opinion) her lack of ass? The fact that this “website” feels that every woman must have a perfectly voluptuous ass while having the face of Helen of Troy is just absurd. If you’re reading this, MediaTakeout, I would love a full body shot of every woman on your staff. Please. Send photos now. Because anyone who is shaming a really beautiful woman for not being on Nicki Minaj’s level of “ass” MUST be a 12 out of 10. She MUST be.

Let’s move on to the fact that MediaTakeout is OBSESSED with Jay Z and Beyonce. And, yes, I am also obsessed with Jay Z and Beyonce, but that is what makes the site a sham. Instead of actually finding news that is based on things that may be at least 20% true, they play to what they know will get hits. Smart business move? YES! Kudos to them for knowing what draws in an audience, but shame on them for sensationalizing anything having anything to do with The Carters. And shame on them for ever having the NERVE for speaking about a child the way the fools who run this site do.

Lastly, I cannot begin to blame MediaTakeout without placing 50% of the blame on our own nosiness. The only reason the website exists is because the focus of the site is on supposed “black culture.” You know, good for them for being able to build a business centric to black media. However, there needs to be more press given to outlets that actually UPLIFT the black community instead of constantly being negative. How about instead of saying “Jennifer Hudson makes cellulite looks good,” we mention how amazing she looks regardless. How about instead of saying you support big asses regardless if they’re fake or natural, you support asses of ALL sizes (I know, hard to do in this day and age). How about you don’t post complete and utter bullshit for clicks and have some gahd damned integrity for once.

I don’t know, maybe I’m asking for too much. After all, TMZ is making BANK on complete and utter sleaze. And people keep eating it up.

Let’s just do better.
