Little Man

In a mildly hyped interview with George Michael, Daniel Snyder said that a newspaper would have more of a bias than a television station.

Snyder: Well I think part of the problem with the media is that there's a landscape change in the media, and newspapers, for example, their circulations are declining rapidly, three, four percent a year. So what they need is controversy to sell, they need negativity. And I think when it all comes down to it, it becomes a sort of feeding frenzy for them. If you look at the more modern media, newer technology, whether it be Comcast SportsNet or what have you, it's almost a little bit less biased because there's less agenda.

Now, Comcast SportsNet fills an enormous amount of programming with Redskins interviews, and have a financial partnership with them, with Redskins Radio on twice for an hour today. It's unbelievable how biased television has become with regards to sports because they air so many games. For example, it wouldn't make much sense for Sportscenter to talk about the decreasing relevance of baseball and the rampant use of HGH as a lead in for Sunday Night Baseball. And it's a joke the Snyder thinks his constituency is so stupid as to not realize that.
