NFT: The amount of regurgitated sports talk is incredible-

Sean : 1/9/2018 5:46 pm
Iím just flipping through the channels now & I just keep hearing the same takes. Whether it be:

ESPN
FS1
CBS Sports Network
NBC Sports Network
SNY
Any generic national sports radio show

Itís enough to drive you nuts. Controlled content is something that is nice about 2018. There are a lot of great podcasts that I can deliberately listen to without enduring all of the BS on sports radio.

It is incredible to me though.
you think that's bad

carefully listen to a montage of the same story and you will actually hear them using the same words, in that someone or group wrote it and then told everyone to report it. Sometimes this makes sense, sometimes it can be propaganda. As an example, who wrote that crap piece on the Patriots?

Seth Wickersham. And no one has been able to refute it definitively. Regardless of where you stand on the "fake news" nonsense, the vast majority of reporters actually do provide news. Wickersham supposedly had more than 10 sources, all vetted and most of which were on the Pats' payroll.

I'm not sure if you're aware of this, but people do deny true stories sometimes.
it still beats
