Media success isn’t equally acknowledged

Lee Enokian from the Illinois Leader talks about the deaths of two major media figures. John H. Johnson and Peter Jennings. Their portrayals were not equal. Perhaps Mr. Johnson was not as well known outside of his black market.

Regardless Enokian says,

Many newspapers briefly mentioned Johnson’s passing, but Jennings was the recipient of a media love fest across the broadcast spectrum. Fellow Canadian Ted Koppel and other broadcasters couldn’t say enough good things about their fallen comrade.

I can agree with Enokian to an extent that the Mainstream Media or MSM had failed to see that Mr. Johnson had proven that "anyone can attain the American dream."
