For the Media Trump’s Indictments Are the Gifts That Keep On Giving



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

 The recent federal indictment of former President Donald Trump saw every cable and broadcast news station going live with wall to wall coverage of his arrival, his time inside and his exit. They also saw big bumps in the ratings as well. “Trump being indicted is the best thing to happen to the mainstream media, since his election in 2016,” says entertainment executive, producer and attorney Warren D. Robinson. “Trump is great for ratings and clicks; his two recent town halls show that,” Robinson continues, “and since he can’t stop getting indicted it’s like Christmas for the mainstream television and online media.” Robinson believes Trump has no one to blame but himself for his latest trouble, he says, “Why not just return the documents? If he had done that at any point (even though the possession of them alone was a crime) there is no way he would have been charged. Instead, he is now facing a Federal trial and some very serious jail time if convicted; he has no one to blame but himself.” With at least another, maybe two, indictments still to come Robinson says the media can continue to expect increased ratings. “Isn’t it ironic that Trump is actually helping to boast the “fake news” media he hates so much,” Robinson concludes.

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.’
