A 20-year journalism veteran who has written and produced my own syndicated sports commentary five days a week since October 2010. My blog is at afrmediaonline.com.
Hey, I was wondering if you would be interested in joining a MLB message board. The URL is www.mlbboards.com and it's free to join. You talk about real life baseball etc
Watson's article is typical drive-by journalism where Yahoo Sports takes a small sample and bury's the 2013 Yankees early, simply to be the first to do so. They no doubt were the first to make the May Yankees the most surprising team too. It's not that they're wrong, it's that their reporting is so disposable that the who can tell at a season's end who said what, who knows what and who as an organization is producing more than opinionated gossip dressed in the clothing of reportage? I know that the internet is an always starving child that must be fed and that nutrition matters less than volume but what is the tipping point for journalism's collapse into delivery system alone with the reader left to wonder who owns this? Ultimately the reader feels Yahoo must know something because Yahoo has said everything. Was the 5th Estate built not on volume but on trust?
We're still waiting for the retraction statement on your article that propagated inaccuracies and falsehoods.
This is not simply going to "go away" until you properly address it.
It's only going to get worse. I promise this.
I also thank you for the advice; I'll be careful.
Thanks for the kind words and thoughtful comments.
Just saw you became the newest Featured Columnist for the Yankees on B/R. Congrats on the accomplishment and keep up the good work and stories.
