No RenoGate Yet

It may be a long time before this case enters a Court of Law, but the Court of Public Opinion is already in session.

ESPN Arrogance?

Big Ben getting in trouble -- for whatever reason -- is news, report it.

ESPN in Bed With NFL

ESPN Is Like Madonna

Back in the day they were both hip, but thirty years later they are talking with strange accents and disconnected from the general public.

New Jounalism Changed The Story

I'm more interested in how the media handles this story than the extraordinarily murky details of what did or did not happen a year ago in that Lake Tahoe hotel.
