Can we all stop beating around the bush and say he was hired because he’s black?
Bingo. Black TV personalities matter.
Clear is kind.

I am sure his race is why he is getting extra time to not be good on air. But that can't be the only reason. Before Covid when I would stay the night in Lansing or Flint/Saginaw they had young black male reporters who were way better. Can't be that much to hire them away. Heck, if they live in Flint they wouldn't even have to move right away
It's how Matt Franklin got his job in Flint.

Darren was a pretty good reporter for Fox17 for many years doing the problem-solvers reporter.

Sept 2, the 6:45am segment. Darren himself had done a package on trying to redirect the taxes on oil and gas.

He still bumbled the intro and in particular the exit. On his own package. I am surprised he got his name right

I gave up on 7 for the day. Darren was dressed in his U of M tank top and a mask and trying to work out and report on gym openings. Not sure who thought he could carry 3 minutes of live airtime, but they were wrong.

The icing on his cake of incompetence was his mask didn't fit so he had to adjust it every 15 seconds.

Checking out 2 for my background station while I work.

Darren was doing the live intro for the package he did on his story of the Oak Park kids in the auto wreck.

It was like watching a guy with stage fright who had never been on air. It got so bad he was doing stop/start and counting the victims on his fingers.

Dude, come on.

This is why most employers just hire white people. No learning curve. No drama. No lawsuits. No riots. And they do a decent job.

Darren usually does a great job. He seems uncomfortable in Detroit like he has to prove himself. He was at 17 in Grand Rapids for so long and he was much better there. Not that it matters for reporting sake but he is a very nice and humble guy.

Sorry, but stories are stories.

When in doubt, use the race card!

It’s too bad people feel nervous about pointing out the obvious and being honest, like naming all the positive contributions fags have made like AIDS, horrible TV shows and movies, and driving up the cost of healthcare for non-gays.

So you change the subject which confirms in big red letters you wouldn’t have the guts to say that in person.
