“Everyone is a prisoner of his own experiences. No one can eliminate prejudices – just recognize them.” – Edward R. Murrow
Although never mentioned by name, Murrow is at the root of a New York Times article earlier this week, written by Joseph Plambeck, that shines a light on sports blogs that don’t bother to hide their affiliations, preferences and biases.
The article focuses heavily on SB Nation, a network of about 250 sports-focused blogs.
Plambeck did a nice job, with varying degrees of success depending on the “in-the-know” factor of the audience. Those interested in media in general will find it fascinating. Those who already have sports blogs might find it intelligent but unenlightening.
Take a read. It’s worth your time.
