Slate on the Redskins, others

Jack Shafer at Slate weighs in on the efforts of Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder (and others) to control the information disseminated about their teams by purchasing or running media outlets like radio stations and fan sites. His take on the modern sports writer is, in most cases, about 30 years out of date. I do, however (and always have) agree that entertaining readers is an extremely important part of sports writing and separates it from the work of reporters in other sections.
