A Great Talk at the Newseum

A great panel discussion at the Newseum on Saturday about sports journalism:

Sports media criticism has become an industry – and some may say, a sport –unto itself, attracting millions daily to the online, broadcast and print discussions about how the games, people and business of sports are reported. Join in a discussion with some of the nation’s top sports media critics, and their critics, in program co-sponsored by the Newseum Institute and the Shirley Povich Center for Sports Journalism at the Philip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland.
