Van Jones new book: dedication and a chapter

Van is working to bring red and blue together.

You know what he calls that.

PURPLE.

It's obvious he cried when he wrote the chapter.

It's well worth the read

BEYOND THE MESSY TRUTH

Sounds like it would be an interesting read. I've been listening a lot to him, he seems like a very sincere person.

He was in President Obama's Administration and at one point, talked about quite a bit in the MSM.

I remember him on Real Time with Bill maher back in the day. He was relatively well known in those circuits before P died.

Seriously?
How could you not have heard of Van Jones IF you were at any time into serious US political discussions?
The only news network he didn't regularly appear on was Fox News, and they constantly demonized him. He had a contract with MSNBC (a daily show!) and now CNN.
Don't forget that
P reached out to him, not the opposite.
Before any of that, he was White House green energy advisoradvisor to president Obama.

Good God, people. Afraid to use Google if you don't recognize something?

i never said i was looking for information about him... so i dont need to google anything ... i said i had never heard of him before Prince died... the fact that he spends Sunday Mornings shooting the shit on TV with a bunch of other creepy lying ass politicians and so-called political pundits, doesnt impress me at all... it doesnt change my impression or opinion of him...he has a nice little resume and background, ill concede that...but in regards to Prince, he seems oddly lovestruck...my opinion...

Why the hate for Van Jones. What has he ever done to anyone? According to Shelby J. Prince was a news junkie. One of the NPG horn players told a story about one of the horn members getting lost at Paisley looking for a bathroom and ended up walking in on Prince in pajamas & slippers eating breakfast watching CNN. 😂

Serious US political discussions? On CNN? On MSNBC? Please, those networks are nothing more than clickbait propagandist that continually spew leftist tripe, fake news, and conspiracy theories.

CNN is not left of center. I pay attention to the big three and know that there is nothing as far to the left as Fox is to the right.
....and conspiracy theories?

Of course, you think that way, because you are obviously a leftist yourself. I'm not. A new report from Harvard Kennedy School’s Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy analyzed news coverage of President Trump’s first 100 days in office. CNN's Trump coverage was 93% negative and 7% positive, MSNBC's Trump coverage was also 93% negative and 7% positive, Fox New's Trump coverage was 52% negative and 48% positive. These numbers not only reflect the extreme leftist bias of CNN and MSNBC, but they also show that Fox News is the only one being fair and balanced. They also firmly prove you wrong.
