This year we will see HBO and ESPN on the web.  Sorry cable companies.  I hope this does not make them bitter when it comes to net neutrality negotiations.

Matthew Engel, Journalist and Sports Writer and 2011 News International Visiting Professor of Broadcast Media gives the first of the 2011 series on Broadcast media, entitled; Please, mister, can we have our ball back?
Ken Morrison's insight:

I truly enjoyed this podcast about the recent history of sports and culture and broadcasting. It is 50 minutes long.  My favorite part is how in the 1960s, so soccer players refused to wear Adidas shoes for profit.  Althought they were offered a payment that would have equalled one year's salary a few years earlier, they hated the feeling of selling out.  There are important parts of this podcast that help us explore how, when and why war vocablulary entered the world of sports. This is an excellent discussion about the history of sports in the second half of last century from one of the top sports reporters in Europe.

Ken Morrison's insight:

You can't understand new media without understanding 'somewhat old media'.  If you do not like television news today, it probably has a lot to do with the elimination of the Fairness Doctrine in the 1908's.  During that period, TV stations stopped thinking of news as a service and began moving the news department under the entertainment departments. The news was no longer a prerequisite for renewal of broadcast liscenses.  It became a tool to increase profits.  Thirty years later, we live with the results.
