Miss Info Ponders Lawsuit, Immortal Technique Ponders the Big Picture

The Daily News reports that Miss Info is considering a lawsuit against Hot 97.

Meanwhile Jeff Chang and Oliver Wang (here and here) are stepping back to look for the big picture, as is Davey D in the San Jose Mercury News. On our radio show last week I spoke with DJ Kuttin Kandi, community activist Allison Faelnar and Immortal Technique, you can hear our discussion here.

As it stands now, Todd Lynn and Rick Delgado are fired, Emmis is giving a million to Tsunami aid. While Miss Jones and the rest of her crew will return to the airwaves on Feb. 9th, which happens to be the Chinese Lunar New Year. Councilman John Liu, who became the de facto leader of this protest once mainstream media moved it beyond the internet, is focusing on demanding more money from Emmis, and not making it a priority to seek any further firings or disciplinary action.

So how do you all feel at this point? What, if anything, has been accomplished? What more needs to be done, both short term and long term?

I am going to start posting about other subjects again, in order to maintain my sanity. but I will continue to post updates on this issue too as more news comes in, which it surely will.
