"B.I.T. - BLACK INFORMATION TELEVISION IS ON THE AIR!!
We've heard of BET (Black Entertainment Television). Now, there's BIT (Black Information Television). Black Information Television started on February 24, 1998. Black Information Television appears every Tuesday at 4 PM on Suburban Cable Channel 28, which is considered one of the most watched local access television stations in America.
The purpose of Black Information Television is to provide information to the community.
"I felt there was a need for more informational programs to go into the black community and provide positive information," said the producer and founder of BIT, General Balogun.
Some of our upcoming programs are 1.) Community Issues with Brother Omar Rashada; 2.) The B.I.T. Investment Club Show; 3.) B.I.T. Special Report Programs. We have been featured in the "Final Call" newspaper. I make copies of the programs and mail or send them to Africa and cities across the U.S.A. So, many people worldwide have seen B.I.T. programs. My e-mail address is [email protected] Videotapes of B.I.T. programs are $10.00 per program. Copies of my book (The African P.O.W. in America) are $15.00.
Ironically, I began Balogun TV Ministry in 1991 because the local newspapers would pick and choose which letter to the editor of mine that they would print. I am very controversial because I speak the truth as I know it and I have a way with words. When you live in a culture that was founded by pathological liars (we hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal, etc...) how could that statement have possibly been the truth when the very people who wrote it owned slaves? When you live in a culture that is a figment of the imagination of a group of founding pathological liars, then the truth is indeed very controversial. The newspapers censored my letters to the editor, and the staff member would always lie and say that they don't censor. Only a pathological liar would lie when the truth is "self-evident," this very culture is a lie!
In order to counter the censorship of the newspapers, I purchased air time and produced "The Word." In 1998 I changed the name of Balogun TV Ministry to Black Information Television. My thinking was that there was a void that needed to be filled. We have B.E.T. because the people in America who are going by the name African- American, this year, are the most entertaining folks in the world. They live to entertain white folks. They do not have a clue what is going on domestically, much less internationally, information-wise. These people would not know the truth if it walked up and slapped them in their face. Black Information Television has been slapping them in their face since 1991. I am the most unpopular black leader in Wilmington, Delaware and proud of it.
Black Information Television is not a sit-com, it is a series of talk shows that deal with serious local, national and international issues that are not discussed on mainstream t.v., I definitely am not one of the funny nigers and I don't give a damn about sports either. The air time is lease access local programming, however I make copies of the programs and mail or send them to Africa and cities across the U.S.A. So, many people worldwide have seen B.I.T. programs.
It is important that people in Africa, Europe and Asia see something other than sit-coms and sports. This is the mission of Black Information TV. We air at 4:00 p.m. every Tuesday on Channel 28 and we are in the TV Guide section of the newspaper under Channel 28. As we enter our 11th year we will be expanding our viewers worldwide and we will continue to go there. You know how people say "Don't go there," well, we will go there.
