“Reporting is dead – long live making something out of nothing” – Keith Olbermann, during the debut of his new show Monday on ESPN2.
If you listen really closely – and digest the rest of the show, especially when Olbermann spoke about the media, or joked with Mark Cuban about ESPN being the “A-Rod Network” – you might recognize the message he’s subtly sending you.
Text from a non-ESPN media member who shall remain nameless: “The Keith Olbermann show was exceptional tonight. That’s intellectually stimulating television at its finest in sports.”
Given the current sports TV landscape, it’s hard to argue against that.
