Black newspaper publisher prints lies on former mayor; received loan forgiveness from current mayor

On June 1st the LA Sentinel exposed themselves.  Owner/publisher Danny Bakewell owed the city of Compton millions of dollars that he refused to pay.  Since then, he has continued to tout the re-election of the members of the dais, who absolved him of his debt.  The June 1st article included a lie on the former mayor of Compton, Omar Bradley, which prompted a phone call from the publisher to Mr. Bradley, with the understanding the article would be pulled and a retraction for the lies he published would take its place.  Danny Bakewell kept his word but many wonder why he would print such lies in the first place.  Oh, on July 15, 2014, Mayor Aja Brown and council members Isaac Galvan and Janna Zurita, under authority of the Successor Agency/ LA Countyvoted to forgive $3.5 million dollars he owed the city.  These are the same three prominently featured on covers of both Bakewell owned publications:  the Sentinel and LA Watts Times.

In the June 1, 2017 Edition of The Los Angeles Sentinel we featured an Editorial story titled “Why Mayor Aja Brown Deserves Our Vote”.  In this editorial the writer made certain allegations about the Mayors opponent Fmr. Compton Mayor Omar Bradley and his family that were factually incorrect and did not meet the Sentinels historical standard of excellence and was just simply wrong.  The truth is Omar Bradley nor any of his family members were ever charged with any crimes related to the solid waste scandal and trying to link Mr. Bradley or any of his family members to this crime is just unfair and should have never been a part of our story.

Furthermore, we want to make a special apology to the entire Compton City Council who have all worked tirelessly to serve the City and its Residents.  Yes, the Los Angeles Sentinel does support Mayor Aja Brown, but we also endorsed and continue to support Councilwoman Tana McCoy, Councilman Isaac Galvan, Councilwoman Janna Zurita and Councilwoman Emma Shariff in their positions as elected officials and we have no reason to waiver on our support in any way.

The Sentinel wants to acknowledge that while Former Mayor Omar Bradley has had his challenges, for many years he was a fine and dedicated public servant.

The Sentinel does not authorize, the re-print or distribution of the inaccurate information in the June 1, 2017 editorial in any form .  See the Los Angeles Sentinel next week (6/8/2017) for more information and updates.

    The day that U.S. born Black men and women stop using the political process as a popularity contest to vote for misfits/disgraceful individuals, to instead use his, her, and/or their “noggin” to recommend, and/or promote individuals who are truly loyal, honorable, ethical, competent, and most of all who respect the “Oath of Office”, the U.S. Constitution, and/or the appropriate State Constitution…..

    Will be the day that the Black community moves forward and not heading fast in the wrong direction towards self inflicted extinction.

    The Los Angeles Sentinel is not a respected newspaper.

    Placing all the blame on the little guy or gal in the Black community for the demise of the Black community is very removed from the truth.

    It would be a snow ball’s chance in “Hell” for any journalist and/or the Los Angeles Sentinel to publish information condemning no good Congresswoman Maxine Waters and/or other self-serving elitist treasonous Charlatan Black leaders.

    The mission of the Los Angeles Sentinel and/or both past and present journalists employed by the Los Angeles Sentinel, is to condone and/or protect incompetence and sleaze that exists in the Black community, and not expose this shameful activity.

    https://www.facebook.com/michael.lofton.79/posts/10209274850604119

    It is refreshing to know that there are Black inner-city residents and other individuals who have not been duped by Congresswoman Maxine “Kerosene” Waters, other disgraceful elected officials/public servants, numerous poverty pimps and no good Black Reverends/Preachers, who condemn President Donald Trump without factual basis, while giving individuals/organizations unworthy of praise or respect a “free pass” to continue being hypocrites, thieves, liars, etc., etc.

    The Los Angeles Sentinel is not a respected newspaper.

    Following or accepting at face value news and/or other information this “Yellow Journal” for a newspaper will keep you misinformed and/or if you are a paying subscriber you have just given away your money.

    Finally, the Los Angeles Sentinel is owned by Danny Bakewell, Sr.. one of the most renowned Black poverty pimps/crooks/thief in a business suit in the County of Los Angeles, and/or possibly the U.S.
