NewsOne Now Podcast: Has The Media Blown The Ebola Crisis Out Of Proportion Or Should We Be Really Afraid?


Has the media blown the Ebola crisis in America out of proportion? Are they playing on and heightening our sense of fear or should we be terrified of Ebola’s presence in the United States? Jeff Johnson, guest host of “NewsOne Now” takes your calls during the radio portion of the show.

This past August,West Bladen High School football player, Lennon Lacy was found dead hanging from a swing set in a trailer park just hours before the season’s first football game. Local area police ruled his cause of death a suicide, but Lacy’s parents don’t accept that claim. Lacy’s family says his body showed signs of him being beaten.

On Monday, Allen Rogers, attorney for the Lacy family joined guest host Johnson and the “NewsOne Now” Straight Talk panel (Yesha Callahan, Robert Traynham and Hazel Trice Edney) to discuss the details surrounding the Lennon Lacy case.

Crystal Adell, CEO of Black Women Do Workout joined guest host Johnson on “NewsOne Now” for this week’s installment on Fit!Live!Win!.

Adell dispels the myth that Black women do not workout and details creative and fun ways to exercise while creating a support system to keep them on track.

Grammy nominated singer and writer Maysa joined guest host Johnson on “NewsOne Now” to discuss her first Christmas album, “A Very Maysa Christmas” and some of her upcoming music projects.

During their chat, Maysa explained she was saving money to make “A Very Maysa Christmas” so that she could own the album. This way, every year her son would receive income once she leaves the earth. Her record label, Shanachie struck a deal with her to fund the album and once 20,000 units are sold, ownership of the album would revert back to Maysa and her son.
