The Media Terror, and Why the New NBC Sports Channel Makes Me Happy

I stumbled across this blog post today and thought I would share it with you. It basically sums up how I feel about the media in this country today. Many of you know that I feel the media has turned into a digital era version of the French Terror, a group with nearly unchecked power that can turn it's attention to a person and/or situation and can figuratively(for now) make heads roll. I only hope that the Bernie Fine mess, and the ESPN lack of action is the beginning of the phase where, much like the French Terror, the Media Terror begins to devour it's own. I doubt that anything will come of this in the end, but I have decided to give up on ESPN, other than live sporting events. That is why the news about the re-branding of the Versus channel made me happy. If you haven't watched Hockey coverage on Versus you are missing out on some pretty good broadcasting. And NFL turning point is one of the best analysis shows on TV. You get a great NFL film worthy picture, subtle yet in-depth narration, and a nice dose of Tony Dungy thrown in at the end for good measure. If they can develop a news show to highlight the daily sports news I think NBC sports could be the way to go for our sports coverage/analysis. Lord knows ESPN needs some real competition.
