In this months issue of Giant Magazine, MediaTakeOut.com's editor Fred Mwangaguhunga is named as one of the "100 Giants" in the world of entertainment. The magazine, which is on stands now, lists our very own Fred as number 74 on the list. Here are some of the others who made the cut:
1. Jay Z
2. Will Smith
3. Sean "Diddy" Combs
4. Beyonce Knowles
5. Tyler Perry
6. Oprah Winfrey
7. 50 Cent
11. Kanye West
28. Tyra Banks
74. Fred Mwangaguhunga
76. Andre Harrell
87. Polow Da Don
94 Jermaine Dupri
We have to admit, it feels good that one of the most influential magazines recognizes how big of a force MediaTakeOut.com is in the world of media - you know, with us being the the most visited Black website in the world an all.
But all this "Giant 100" mess seems to be going to Fred's head. Dude has been walking around the office all week wearing his stunnas and whistling Big Pimpin'....
How does Jay Z beat Oprah? Nevermind, this is Giant Magazine...nevermind. Of course...
Um, okay and that's their opinion?
I will have to DISAGREE...MTO yall LIE and CAN'T SPELL sometimes.
alot of the times yall stories be so *** lame, yall need a new editor... top 10????
with a name like Mwangaguhunga, I'm wondering just how much does he know about black american culture. Is this the reason MTO can't get their stories straight?
Fred towards the bottom where he belong!! Make ya'll stories more credible and he'll move on up! LOL
Umm 1. Since when was Giant one of the most influential magazines out and 2. Big Pimpin?.... Come on Fred...
I love MTO and all, but yall be making up stuff
WHY IS MTO SO HYPE FOR...YALL ARE NUMBER 74...YALL NOT EVEN IN THE TOP 50 COME ON....
LMAO at PRM! That's the truth! LOL
Forget MTO.. All these other people before OPRAH.. LETS GET SERIOUS!!
Come on now wassup wit # 87... Polo tha Don, Lets get real, wit his fruity a$$ , u see how *** he dancing in Rich Boy's " you will always be my Friend" lmao....
Just because you get alot of hits....doesnt mean your INFLUENTIAL. You don't change anyones lives or daily existence. Oprah does...why isnt she number one? Myabe the magazine got its idea of what they were even listing. If its powerful people I can understand Jayz being high because that man owns ventures in almost all areas of entertainment. he just bought land to open hotels. He is pretty powerful...hes doing just about everything. now your editor on the other hand....i believe he should be lower or not on the list. It's just a gossip website. lol
anytime oprahs behind jay-z on the most powerful ppl in entertaiment list, you have to discredit the whole list altogether.
FRED, I SAW YOU IN JEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEEEET
*** JAY Z
*** *** SMITH
*** 50 MONKEY
LMAO 74TH SPOT....I WOULD NOT MAKE THAT KNOW TO THE ENTIRE WORLD......SUCH A NARCISSIST......
OH AND U DUMB BIIITCHES LEAVE FRED ALON. HE'S MORE EDUCATED THAN U DUMB *** WILL EVA BE
how did you make the list? or should i say why?
Oh yeah probably for all the controversy and lies you tell, it was the magazines way of putting you on blast.. so Fred don't get to excited because everyone knows you all jack stories from other sites.
No, he's probably more educated than you will ever be.
well he is all the way at the bottom of the list #74 so what.
That was to Lonnydan
YingYang ignore that loony. IT wldnt even recognise "educated" if same crawled up and bit IT in the arse.
LMAOOOOO...this is a straight up lie..how the hell can Fred be in the same list as Oprah and Will Smith?! are you kidding me?! this web site is bootleg as hell..theres always improper use of grammar and tons of spelling errors, not to mention fake stories and lies..I come here for entertainment and a good laugh, and I just got a good one with this list! plus, Giant magazine is bootleg..who ever heard of it? besides when MTO posts stories and pics from it?
i'm so glad!!! now I know the name of the *** that runs this site! Can we uplift our people plz instead of tryin to tear them down???!!
i suggest to get into the top 50 u revisit some episodes of that old annoying show "learn to read" on pbs cuz obviously spell check doesnt do too well but other than that YAY GO FRED!
MTO, the celebrities are always commenting about how you always talk about them and write lies about them. Even Queen latifah anwsered your claim that she is getting married on blackamericawebsite.
you better be careful, you will get sued. I enjoy your mess though. It can sometimes be very funny.
too bad u got there by telling lies! imagine wut number u would be if u didnt...
uhhhh..yea. thats nice, but ummm.....why the hand full of stories this morning? its about to snow imma be in the house all day, i need something to do. finals are over so i have nothing to study.lol. and how is the editor one of the most powerful people in entertainment? what else does he do besides run this website? whatever.....
I actually thought this was TRUE!!!
BOGUS LIST I TELL U!!!! LOL...TRY AGAIN & MUCH HARDER NXT TIME M.T.O!!
giant magazine?????...never heard of that ....and that list is *** wack anyway...especially if they put anyone from this dollar-tree site on it
ANY list that has Beyonce, Tyler Perry, Jay Z and Diddy more powerful than Oprah means that they just sat around a table throwing out names.
*** & ***!
AND HOW COME I NEVER HEARD OF THIS "GIANT" MAGAZINE? LOL
Please, Please, Please, don't let him sell out. Keep the site the same. MTO is getting a lot of attention and it might get tight. Other more prominate sites or media outlets my want a "piece of the MTO dream" & will try to come after him, either by discrediting him or try to buy him out. Don't fall for it.
Where is Fred Mwangaguhunga from? Or rather, what country does his last name orginate?
CONGRATS MTO!!!! GIANT MAG...so FRED how exactly did you come up with the name for your website?...FRED...well i thought about for a while and came up with, well we'll just listen to the MEDIA and TAKEOUT the truth and add in the lies, thus the name MEDIATAKEOUT!lol jk...we still love ya though
Congratulations to MTO!
Hercules! Hercules! Hercules!
Just some minor observations...if Jay Z is "#1" how is it he just lost his job. Oprah can't be "fired" so I'm only guessing she has a bit more clout than Jay Z...and more money.
And anyone ever heard of Cathy Hughes? She owns half the Black radio stations that Beyonce Knowles has her music played on. And she has her own cable network.
I'm only guessing she has more "power" than Beyonce. Don't quote me on it, but I'm pretty *** sure I'm right.
The list was compiled without any real knowledge of power brokers in entertainment...then again, who the hell is "Giant" Magazine?
Who cares, what I really want to know is who Alicia Keys says her "secret love" is....the front cover says that she revealed it. Hopefully she just puts the guys name that she's with it out there so that people will stop hounding her about being ***.....cuz I'm sure she aint.....Go Alicia! That's my girl!
HELL THEY MUST BE ON THE SAME SH!T LIL WAYNE IS ON!!!!
YOU STILL A *** NINJA TURTLE FRED...JUST WITH STUNNA FRAMES ON NOW!!
Okay so you scraped Top 75 and you knock Bey, yet homegirl is 70 PLACES higher than you!
AND BEYONCE BEAT YOUUUUUUUU HA HA AHA HA! AINT GOT SH!T TO SAY BOUT THAT! #77!!! LOSERSS@ HAHHHHH!
74 MY BAD SH!T SO FUNNNY!! AND I WANT TO KNOW HOW FREDDY IS MORE POWERFUL THAN JD WHO DID MARIAH'S BIGGEST ALBUM OF HER CAREER AND IS ONE OF THE BEST IN THE BIZ?!
THATS A CHINESE RIDDLE FOR YOU!
remy either we think alike or you are biting my style! my screen name used to be remy ma and my signature is "it's me ***" and yours is "it's remy ***"!
From little acorns......you go Fred!
And to answer a question above I'm guessing East or Central Africa that surname orignially comes from.
LOL... BIG PIMPIN'... LOL... WELL PLAY ON PLAYA!!
SOOOO.... BEYONCE'S THE 1ST FEMALE ON THE LIST HUH... WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT... #4? LOL YA NUMBER ONE BOY IS... WELL LOOK AT THAT... NUMBER 1 :-) lol... gotta luv it!!
OH GOSH... YA FAVORITE NON-TALENT DIDN'T MAKE IT??? SHOCKING!

You aren't the most visited black website on the web. Blackplanet is.
Black MEDIA source, maybe. But not many people look up "Black media".
CONGRATS FRED AND MTO!!!!
SHOULD BE ON THA LIST FOR LIARS
What the hell is giant magazine?
Yeah right MTO 74 out of 100, he should be walkin around crying, if u guys is the the most visit site int he world...YOU SHOULD OF BEEN INT HE TOP 20....whatava!!!
Well, if Giant had any credibility this would mean something. Naming this site as powerful, is like naming the Enquirer powerful... You're both full of ***.
what i dont understand is that the same m-f's on here doggin MTO are the same ones commenting on the site every *** day!!! if u think its full of *** then quit checkin the *** thing!
lol!!!!!!!!!*** jayz dont influence anyone but children. white people laugh at him. and there's no way he'd be before will smith or oprah. after i saw he was number 1, didn't even bother to read the rest of the *** cause it's a *** lie straight up. that's no giant magazine gets no respect by anyone else other than blacks. lol dumb ***. its obvious they pulled this list out of their ***
Congrats Fred! Now can you center the layout?
How? All ya'll do is lie. And when the story is right ya'll heads get big. And when the story is wrong ya'll take it down.
Radio One, the radio empire started by Cathy Hughes and now presided over by her son, Alfred Liggins, purchased the magazine in January of 2007 for a reported $270,000. GIANT is Radio One's first foray into the print media market.
How about BlackAmericaWeb.com and Tom Joyner? Oh yea, they actually try to better the Black condition!
michael baisden should be on that list
wtf is giant magazine? wow- sure they have a lot of creditbility. this guy has toooo many syllables in his name- it has to be fake. has to be.
CONGRATULATIONS FRED. GIVING UP YOUR ATTORNEY JOB SEEMS TO BE WORKING OUT FOR YOU . WE NEED MORE PEOPLE LIKE YOU IN OUR COMMUNITY WITH THEIR OWN BUSINESS AND YOU ARE EDUCATED YOU PASSED THE BAR EXAMS AND THATS NOT EASY THATS WHY YOU ARE A LAWYER.
FOR THE PEOPLE WHO DON'T KNOW GIANT MAG LOOK IT UP IT'S OWNED BY THE KATHY HUGHES WHO OWNS RADIO ONE AND TV ONE ,ANOTHER BLACK WOMAN WHO OWNS HER OWN .
what's his name haha...i hope he black while he wearin stunna shades and big pimpin is an old songboo..and number 87 come on nah...tyler perry oprah ,kanye,and t.i deserves they spots
LMAO!!!!! Sweety, look at how you're typing... yet yellin' out everything & everyone is "ghetto"... YOU EMBODY THE VERY SAME QUALITIES OF THAT WHICH YOU CONDEMN :-) hmmm... Shakespeare comes to mind :-)
a quote from King Richard III.... oh coward conscience, how dost thou afflict me!

So MTO is run by an African Mofo??
Cant even pronounce his name but he some how is "one of the most unfluential people in entertainment"? WTF is Giant Magazine anyways??When u f*ckers get a *** out in Rolling Stone, Ebony, Vibe or even BLENDER, then I'll give a sh*t!!!
P.S. This website is run on the lies you guys tell daily, yet you thrive on high entertainment value ( which is the only reason I am here). You guys make up more than 1/2 the stories you publish, Im amazed at how you're not being sued like crazy.
1. Whatever happened to Serena Williams being knocked up by that Jackie Long fellow? Sh*t she should have a baby bump by now, where is it. Lying *** MTO. You thrive on the lies you tell. And btw, you need top update, these same stories havebeen on here for a f*cking week.
Yeah! Ok! Fred Mwangaguhunga don't be gettin it twisted, I mean gettin the "Bighead" and all cuz that's when you fall of your game. Like right about now. Today's readings are lookin a little weak.....I'm just sayin.
P.S. Don't let this *** go to your head cuz that's when you fall off so put the *** stunna shades up and get back to work....Aiiiiiight!
I don't believe the list is concrete or accurate. Also who heard of GIANT mag? I've never seen it on any newstand or in stores. I come here 4 entertainment only but still, the poor spelling and grammer, the lies,lol, like 75% of the stores are made up. They should re-name this site, Freddie's Fables. And Freddie, take our advice, we are the ones who make this website. Remember w/o us, you're nothing. lol
NEVER HEARD OF GIANT MAGAZINE? HOLLABACK WHEN ITZ IN EBONY! WHAT NUMBER WILL HE BE THEN???
That's the correct job they've done. But they missed the great celeb club millionairecupid.com. I checked most of the celeb news and celeb profiles there.
langston_h Flag post
michael baisden should be on that list
2. CONGRATS FRED!!!!!!! My personal feeling is community news is the diamond in the ruff for this site.
Congrats. Keep up the good work. :)
THATS RIGHT MTO...PUT IT OUT THERE FOR ALLLLLLL THE HATERS..YA'LL AIN'T PLAYIN WIT THESE FOLKS...YOU REPORT IT 1ST ..THE HATERS REPLY THEN THE WORLD FINDS OUT YOU WERE RIGHT BUT THEN YOU DON'T GET THE CRED..MAN IM HAPPY YALL FINALLY GOT RECOGNITION.
Keep killing them Fred.
Black entrepreneurs stand up !!
Fred [UN-PRONOUNCABLE LAST NAME HERE] ain't powerful. Plus I've seen Fred and he looks like "he ain't never seen no paaaaarrrt of the pu$$y.
I HIGHLY DOUBT THAT HE WOULD BE ON THAT LIST AMONGST ALL OF THOSE OTHER FAMOUS PEOPLE JUST FOR SOME WEBSITE....HOW LONG HAS THIS SITE BEEN UP AND RUNNING ANYWAYS?????
LMAO How did Jay Z beat Oprah? ?? Is that list for real.
HELLO !!!!! THE CEO OF GIANT MAGAZINE IS FRED PEOPLE! IT WOULD OF BEEN OBVIOUS IF HE WAS AT THE TOP!! IT ANT ALWAYS WHAT YOU DO ITS WHO YOU KNOW!!!! I THOUGHT YALL WAS WOULD BE SMARTER THAN THIS!
Since when Polow been most powerful?WOW I must been hiding under a rock because when did that happen?
LMBAO @ CeJae! School Daze was the ***! Still loving that movie...anyway, Fred? I wouldnt be poppin' bottles for being #74...
who gives a flying *** abt fred wagagagunga?!
wat power has he got, dont get carried away with this unconfirmed/untrue/edited/fake/*** list!
Fred, the only way to pronounce your name right is to say it with a mouthful of ice. I thought you would be in the top 10 but you know how they do the brothas!
Please MTO Giant is no time magazine. They have not been around as long as VIBE.
I believe MTO should be rated higher than 74. I mean, Oprah at 6 while Jay Z is at 1. C'mon! Maybe it's the poor spelling that hurt MTO.
I don't believe that Fred Mwangaguhunga exists. Why aren't there any pictures of him anywhere? MTO needs to throw a party and have him host it for me to believe he exists. I heard "Free" from 106th and Park is the true founder of MTO.
Seriously.. EVERYONE THINK ABOUT THIS..
Names listed are household names such as Kanye, Jay Z, Oprah, TI, Beyonce, Diddy, Tyra...
WHO EVEN CARES ABOUT FRED MWANGAGUHUNGA??! If he exists, he's no Jay, Kanye, Diddy, etc.
MTO ya'll gotta come better than that.. Stop creating this non sense in hopes of it becoming reality.. Get it together! LOL!
@ The Realist..yes there is, in the Jet magazine this year from the period of September-October.Don't know if it's actually him but they had a picture with the owner of MTO.
STOP SUCKING YOURSELF MTO!!!!!!!!!!!
How about we just congratulate another young Black businessman. I saw the story on Fred in JET mag. Congratulations, you seem to be quite intelligent and enterprising. Much more business-minded and independent than most would assume. You basically found an untapped market and got rich and famous from it. Seriously, congratulations, you make us proud.
^^check out these hatin a$$ People above me!^^
Hmm, when is MTO going to take this article down, such gloaters
YOUR NUMBER 74 NOT 10 GET OVER YOURSELVES YA'LL PROBABLY LYING I'LL HAVE TO SEE THE BOOK TO MAKE SURE
YOU ARE OFFIVIALLY FIRED AS OF TODAY MTO.WHERE IS THE FREAKIN STORIES AT FOR TODAY *** IT
MTO YOU SUCK.I WANDER DID YOU GET TO DRUNK TO GET YOUR *** UP THIS MORNING.
Best editor? That *** *** *** can't even spell; how in the *** is that powerful?? LMAO!
You aint dat big yet...Let us kno when your at least #50 on dat list Lol
Ya'll come on here everyday, so they doing something right. Congrats Fred! even though your stories can be sometimes ignorant, i know all these radio stations and etc get their gossip news from ya'll! I be knowing their stories before they announce them! lol
Ok, IF y'all say soooooo..
OKAY! MTO-Yall are REALLY milking these story.
what? who cares just want to see if my pic is posting
MTO - Congrats! ... I won't start off hating! because I do come on here and read, at times post a response (sigh)! to your newsbreaking ***. But Fred please take off dem glasses for a minute sweetheart and read what your posters say about your site in most cases they are replying to you and not even the NEWS itself! (what news) ohhh ... wait a minute! here's one " Mysterious bruises on someone's KNEE"!..... C'monnnnnnnnnn FRED!? but hey you made the list, pop a bottle!
GIANT magazine is irrelevent, and this proves it. Polow Da Don??? ROFLMBAO. And MTO, y'all don't even use spell check.
[SPAM].com called your guys [SPAM]...lol
HEY FRED, I see you guys took my advice from the superhead stories to allow people to put their pics on here and give them a chance to see who makes all the hating comments and become CELE'BS THEMSELVES, I TOLD YOU IT WOULD WORK, EVERYONE LOVES THIS NEW SET UP.I,VE GOT OTHER GREAT IDEAS FOR YOUR WEBSITE ASWELL THAT WILL HAVE EVERONE IN THE WORLD COMING TO THIS SITE AND ONLY THIS SITE!!! YOU GUYS ARE VERY SMART TO TAKE GOOD ADVICE WHEN IT'S PRESENTED TO YOU AND I AGREE WITH GIANT, YOU ARE THE BEST!!! NOW, IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN SOME OF MY OTHER IDEAS GO TO MY INDIANAPOLIS WEBSITE WWW.INDYGROW.COM AND CONTACT (LB) I'VE LINKED MTO TO OUR INFO DIRECTORY WHERE A LOT OF PEOPLE VISIT YOU THROUGH OUR SITE. WE WILL BE PUTTING ON OUR FRONT PAGE SOON. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK GUYS AND AGAIN CONGRDULATIONS!!
Giant obviously got *** twisted if they have Oprah beneath Beyonce or even Jay-Z. Funny how she's number one on the white magazines Top's lists like FORTUNE, etc. But no dis to Fred!
Where do you buy Giant Magazine?
you guys can say that MTO stories are lame and are wrong but these message boards are always so long so if you're taking time to type to them, you're supporting them and you're also putting money in his pocket.
and shh...in case you haven't heard, this is huge
money is power.
peace and love
Proof that Fred is going around givin head!!!!!!!
why is this story still posted? its OLD and no one cares anymore..congrats Fred..now lets move on
I think they have forgot the editors of celeb club millionairecupid.com. They are excellent too. I saw many celebs joined that club just because of friendly and excellent editors.
Bogus list by a bogus magazine hyping a bogus site where apparently no one on staff knows how to use spell check or can effectively proofread their own work. MTO is a libel suit just waiting to happen.
My post is missing but MTO is a bad liar..... like the time they were on yahoo's top 10 list lol
yeah freakin right!i've never even seen fred!never heard of his name anywhere other than MTO and today is the first time i seen his last name!he probably suckin on somebody's diick at Giant,we all know he ***,cuz 90% of every article is about outing somebody.i bet he was really influential on that diick!
This story ran it's course on the first day it was posted. Please remove it to free up space for something worthwhile like Kim Kardashian's *** or an imagined scoop some news outlet didn't give you credit for.
yeah yeah yeah we GOT it
congrats!! keep the stories and gossip up!
Why is this lame *** still up? It ain't like it's getting a lot of hits. Who the hell reads this magazine anyway, a bunch of illiterates like the people @ MTO? Take this *** down, nobody cares.
FRED why is this still here????... Are you looking for a PARTY to be thrown for your azz?! C'mon this story done stayed up here longer thsn any other I've known.
Okay enuff! ... One more thing to add though, I do like you Fred (?) because you let us come on here and talk mad trash to You! and to each other when they jump out there!!! and *education isn't required to be on here! (LOL)
correction: longer than any other...
Ok, so every day I come on this site and I see new stories, but for some reason, this story is still here....and...why? lol
The more trash published...the more it keeps down the black community as a whole and the more money he and his white cronies make.
One time for keeping your people down...loser.
It's easy to trick the trickable.
LMAO at everyone blastin' MTO to pieces, LOL and happy Friday.
