Backdoor Stuff News on Channel 17 GETV is a program geared towards investigative reporting and getting special guest to appear to discuss world events, entrepreneurship within the community and more. I have had area senators on, and even interview one of the terrorist suspects arrested in Chicago who heading up the alleged Jihad of the US Ghassan Bullit, from the Al-Salaam Mosque Foundation later known as the Mosque Foundation where he was the President of this organization. I came from a family who were involved in the press and media in the early days of radio televison and print media. It was important for me to take my business experience, which covered the areas of Accounting, Business, Law, Art, Entertainment and Science working for the biggest fortune 500 companies, laboratory, and law firm and Government Office and applying the knowledge I received there in to telling the facts as I had experience them in my over 35 years of work experience. My style of broadcast, was conceived, and taught from within a one of a care family of journalist, artist, and talent people who shared thoughts ideas and creativity. The learning experience was one unmatched by any College and University because the teaching I received was from love and respect for one another. What I learned from my father Dan Burley, was applied to my ability to do old style investigative reporting (getting to the facts by going to the source, history developing time-lines and profiling each individual involved within the case and or story leaving no stone un-turn, they I develop media, press to get the truth on the air. Noting that the age of 9 I had my very own column weekly called ÃÂitÃÂs a FactÃÂ. I was interested in science and strange facts then and always one who could develop time lines which was taught to me by my beloved mother GladysÃÂs who I own my life, ideas, and ability too , she taught me well. She told me two things, one that everything you do in life has a rippling effect and everything else, so with this be careful in the things you do and make sure that once you decide to do this thing you will take full responsibility for your actions. The other was to treat everyone as you would want them to treat you and I live by this even until this day!
