CNN's Erin Burnett talks to Whitney Houston's pastor Joe E. Carter about his plans to commemorate the late pop singer. He says the funeral will be uplifting and musical.
When you interviewed Shelley Ross on 2/16 , Ms Ross called Whitney Houston a "junkie." WHY does MS Ross use a derogatory word to label Whitney Houston? We do not use derogatory words to olabeol cancer patients, diabetics..etc. Addiction is a DISEASE, afact apparently not know by Ms Ross or you, Erin.
Thank God Whitney's mother has the good sense to hold the funeral in a church. That service the Jacksons had for Micheal in the Staples Center was tacky. Let's hope this pastor can send Whitney to her rest with very little showmanship.
I found Erin Burnett's interview of Pastor Carter sleazy and troublesome. She continuously pushed for "gossip" level data.
Also, in talking to other guests about Whitney Houston's finances , she kept pushing for details. Why does she care so much!
Her questions and stance were on the level of TMZ or National Enquirer. Sorry, Erin, as a highly educated Black woman – who was rooting for your success – I'm going to turn back to the second airing of Hardball – You blew it with me.
