What Consumers Want
A commenter wrote this on Boston Sports Media Watch:
Does anyone still read the Globe sports? I check Mike Reiss every day, and get the rest of my sports from national web sites. Why would anyone want to read these entertainment reporters who think they are Woodward and Bernstein investigating Watergate? Breer wasn’t contrarian – he was negative. There’s a difference. When did lowly sports reporters decide that they were muckraking journalists? They write about a game. They’re no different from the people who cover Paris Hilton and Mel Gibson, yet you’d think they were covering the Viet Nam war or the BP oil spill.
Makes me wonder – what do consumers of sports media want?
