Fear Of A Mack Planet

Gawker comes up with brilliant, if demented, 20-year cultural reference to explain the News Corp-Dow Jones deal.

What's rather ironic about this idea is News Corp., obviously, owns Fox News Channel which featured Chuck D as one of its original "contributors" (he was sort of the J.J. Johnson of FNC back in the day). Fox did this even despite Chuck's long-standing claim that "Rap is CNN for black people." Once upon a time, I would have dared make the alternate correlation that FOX is rap for white people -- but not now.
