Look Both Ways

I partially agree with what Ben Ferguson is saying. This rape dance shouldn't become a three ring circus if you will. This is not the nexus of the MCS. Why not highlight those children who secured over a million dollars in college scholarships. It shouldn't become a sling blade either. Some people are looking to cash in on this unfortunate incident. Others want to use it as a way to further their own agendas. The talk show hosts at WREC jump on every chance they get to undermine the present administration. Like somehow this is the Mayor's fault. Ben Ferguson and whoever that lady was who appeared opposite him on MSNBC. Probably have never even been to Mitchell High.

Ben Ferguson called another radio host a "media whore." When that host agreed to do the same interview he did, a couple of days earlier. If anybody is guilty; Bill O'Reilly is the media whore here. He is the one keeping this thing in the spotlight. Now they've even discovered another video. Initially Ben claims he turned the interview down because he didn't want to exploit the situation . But then he accepts the invitation only two days later himself. Were his motives in the concern of others or self centered?

I have a couple of theories as to why he didn't accept the call at first. One being he didn't want to appear opposite interim school superintendent Dr. Dan Ward. I bet he would have jumped at the chance to appear opposite Johnnie Turner, president of the local chapter of the NAACP. Secondly, I don't think he expected the story to get this big. This story has taken wings and flew. Since this whole thing happened right under his nose. He didn't want to miss the ride. Young master Ben has stuck his foot in his mouth. I'm sure he thought about that while taping. He wasn't his usual quick witted self. He didn't look both ways
