ONN – Oakland Post’s Paul Cobb On Martin Luther King, Jr., Chauncey Bailey, Mayor Ron Dellums, Oakland
Oakland – Paul Cobb is a long-time Oakland, California writer, activist, community organizer, friend, and now publisher of the Oakland Post. I met Paul at his office in Downtown Oakland in 2008, and to talk about a wide range of subjects, including who killed Chauncey Bailey, what Paul thought about the then current Mayor of Oakland, Ron Dellums, and about his friend, the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Chauncey Bailey was an Oakland journalist who was supposedly murdered by people associated with Your Black Muslim Bakery. But Paul Cobb and others believe that the chain of events that led to someone murdering a journalist in the line of duty is more complicated and may lead to people and institutions one would not expect. In our talk, Paul shared some interesting information.
Without coming out and saying it directly, Cobb believes that an Oakland Police officer had some role in Bailey’s eventual death. He says this twice in the video. Cobb also said that California Attorney General Jerry Brown took Chauncey Bailey’s research files from him and never returned them.
Cobb talks about President Barack Obama and what his friend the late Dr. Martin Luther King, would think about Barack’s historic success in becoming as of this writing the first African American presidential nominee of either party. What Cobb says is not just that he would be proud, but it is the culmination of his dream.
Those are some of the highlights of a man who’s life goes back to his personal relationship with Martin Luther King. It’s a fitting talk to present for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day 2020.
Note from Oakland News Now Technical: this video-blog post shows the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. The main system is a major part of Zennie62Media’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. There, an uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-owned social media pages. This part allows rapid conversion of YouTube videos from any source channel (with permission and from Zennie62 on YouTube) to Oakland News Now blog posts. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.Zennie62Media, Inc with CEO Zenophon Abraham.
