Fani Willis Made for Great TV but Undermines a Very Serious Legal Case



Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed filmmaker Warren D. Robinson (image below).

The love affair between Futon county district attorney Fani Willis and Nathan Wade, the special prosecutor she appointed to lead the Trump election interference case, made for must watch television. The sordid details and twists and turns made it better than any episode of Days of our Lives but it distracted from what is a very serious case. “I am extremely disappointed in Fani Willis.” Says entertainment attorney, producer and media executive Warren D. Robinson, “her bad choices in this situation could completely undermine the credibility of an extremely important case. A case intended to ensure our democracy is upheld, has been tainted.” Robinson says the damage is already done, it gives cover to Trump and his supporters who believe the system and those who enforce it are corrupt.  “It doesn’t matter if Willis is ultimately allowed to stay on the case or is removed.” He says, “she should have resigned or rescued herself (and Wade) the moment this came out; Even better, she should have never started the sexual relationship or appointed Wade in the first place.” Robinson concludes by saying that Willis’s anger on the stand last week was misplaced, “Fani seems to be angry at everybody except the one person she should be angry with, herself.”

According to a statement, “Entertainment executive and producer, Warren D. Robinson believes that when organizations are willing to have open and honest conversations about race and their own bias they can commit to meaningful change. We have seen this recently in the form of Hollywood award shows, particularly, the Grammys and the Academy Awards (Oscars). The Recording Academy and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have both taken concrete steps to diversify their ranks and address inherit biases in their voting processes. As a result we have the most diverse crop of award winners/nominees, respectively, we’ve ever seen. Contrast that with the scandal and production shutdown currently at CBS’s The Talk, which resulted because a co-host was unable to properly engage in a conversation about race, address her own bias and commit to doing better. ‘The key part to every conversation’ Warren says, ‘starts with listening. Listening and hearing are different and if you are unable to listen then you are unable to have a conversation.’


“Warren D. Robinson, is an avid and accomplished entertainment executive, motivational speaker, host, life coach and award winning producer who created the wildly popular series, Buried by the Bernards, which is currently streaming on Netflix.
