Now That's A News Conference…

If you haven’t seen Oklahoma State football coach Mike Gundy’s post-game tirade against Daily Oklahoman columnist Jenni Carlson, it’s well worth a look. Of course it helps to read Carlson’s original article (mirror version) where she “reports” on quarterback Bobby Reid basically being a pussy and a momma’s boy. Carlson’s rumor and innuendo filled piece follows an earlier blog posting on Reid where she said you “had to feel for him” being demoted.

Carlson’s colleagues are rushing to defend her and she’s loudly proclaiming the accuracy of her story and sources, but read her piece again and look for actual sources – they’re few and far between. She’s taken a bunch of disconnected observations, strung it together with a bunch of talk radio ramblings and presented them as “the answer.” To the untrained eye it looks a lot more like a polished turd, but apparently the unwashed masses aren’t intelligent enough to understand the complexity of what sports columnists do for a living…
