The Objective German Media

Why, look who's waiting to speak with Germany's Dirk Nowitzki in the media mixed zone. Oddly, it's Dirk's biggest fan! This ought to be a hard-hitting interview!

Can't be any worse than the NBC 4 reporter who was recapping the USA-China basketball game in her USA jersey...

Sorry, I don't think U.S. sports "journalists" have the standing to look down on the objectivity of reporters from anywhere else.

The role of steroids in MLB was well known but not reported until there were federal charges brought.

The huge scandal over crooked officiating of NBA games beyond the Donaghy case is currently being ignored by sports media. ESPN is a business partner with the NBA in NBA China.

The Washington Post served as the lead cheerleader and echo chamber as the DC Government spent hundreds of millions to build a new stadium to benefit a small group of wealthy MLB owners and players.

I believe the Post was also a strong advocate of following MLB's orders to put this white elephant on the waterfront with no parking, rather than put it next to RFK at a far lower cost.

Apologize for the rant. Love your stuff Dan. Look forward to more items on DeShawn Stevenson's beard.

That's what people say when Ivan Carter sports his Eddie Jordan Lakers jersey at Wiz press conferences.

Objective journalism? I wonder if anyone else has noted that for the fist time in at least two decades, the medal-counting system (in all american networks covering the olympics) is based in the total number of medals rather that gold medals? Just wondering if it might have anything to do with the number of gold medals China is expected to win..... hmmmm just curious

Some of you are taking this way too serious. It doesn't matter who does it, it doesn't make it right.
