Whitlock addresses the state of sports journalism

My Literature of Latin American independence class that is about to wrap up, but I wanted to pass along this Jason Whitlock column I have been reading to pass the time.

The title is "Time to rethink the role of sports journalists," and it's a worthy read.

It's got some salacious material. 

"My jabs are never personal," Whitlock writes. "As little respect as I have for Lupica, the Barry Bonds of sports writing, I've never shared all that I know about his despicable treatment of the support people he sees as easy-to-replace underlings."

Anyway, if anyone's still reading Chimpanzee Rodeo, take a look and let me know what you think in the comments.
