Abdul Charging Hefty Price for Political Gossip
Since leaving WXNT (show was dumped due to corporate decision), right-leaning political commentator Abdul-Hakim Shabazz hasn't missed a beat. You have to give him that whether you like him or not. One of his latest moves is pretty shameless, even for Mr. Shabazz.
I know he's an avid reader of the blog. He even occasionally gives me some love as he did (indirectly and out of context) on the RTV6 Capitol Watchblog, today. I appreciate that, and I really do appreciate his friendship. Our rivalry is more of a friendly one. That said, I have to call him out on something.
Abdul is peddling political rumors and innuendo for $20. That's right. Stuff that he's essentially making up (or largely basing on complete hearsay) is going for cash money on his new political website. Guess I'm doing it all wrong!
I'm sure someone is paying the price, so good for Abdul for getting it. I just can't believe what some people will pay for.
