'Cost 2 Be the Boss' - Musical Tribute to Fighting JournalistsSalem-News.com
Human rights reporting can be a thankless job...
(BOSTON / SALEM) - The new song by TJP Collective Consciousness: Cost 2 Be The Boss, captures and celebrates the sacrifice and accomplishment that define the lives of today's activist-oriented journos.
Writing and working on behalf of cultures that fall into the 'resistance' category can be a daunting task, and often a thankless job, but we aren't bothered by that. In fact you could in some cases, accurately claim that we thrive on it. Our role as critical journalists means watching out for human rights violations and war crimes, not worrying about false labels.
Still, it is amazing each time a new tribute is created to acknowledge the acts of those willing to risk it all to bring about change for downtrodden people. TJP Collective Consciousness: Cost 2 Be The Boss, an Aldin Entertainment Release-JB, recognizes this endless fight against state terrorism that plagues citizens the world. It is a type of fascist totalitarian control that dominates places like Sri Lanka and Palestine.
The simple truth is that we read between the lines and examine the stories that the mainstream passes over. In many cases our reports are the only sign of either fairness or balance and that is unfortunate. But things are changing, slowly... and it is thanks to people like Agron Belica and his team of extremely talented musical artists, that the acts of those journos who are willing to really involve themselves in the fight, are recognized.
It may be a thankless job, but the rewards and appreciation do matter. This song celebrates Vittorio Arrigoni, Ken O'Keefe, Gilad Atzmon, Siraj Davis, Agron Belica, JB with the young voice, and Tim King.
