The state of the corporate-owned media
Another sports commentator, Bob Costas, shows dignity in refusing to take part in the "missing cute blonde gal" circus. Kind of like Keith Olbermann (mentioned in the article, too) who essentially walked off his show in 1998 when he became tired of the wall-to-wall Clinton sex scandal coverage. I happened to see that moment and was jumping for joy that someone finally told the corporate media "emperor" that it had no clothes on.
We don't hear a peep, though, from the so-called "news" reporters, which tells us a lot about the different cultures of the "sports" commentators and "news" commentators in corproate-owned media. The sports guys, maybe because they see sports figures saying and doing what they want, decide they can stand up for themselves, too. However, unlike too many sports players, Costas' remarks about the incident, as stated in the article, show a degree of class very rare these days.
Costas is a favorite of mine and he proved once again why I admire him.
