Great segment on PJTV with Roger Simon and Lionel Chetwynd exploring the politicization of sportsbroadcasting — because all facets of life must inevitably become politicized (Tutto Nello Stato, Niente Al Di Fuori Dello Stato). Don’t miss the early video of Keith Olbermann, who with his mustache and shock of still-black hair, looks suspiciously like Rupert Pupkin, though minus Rupert’s trademark nuances and cerebral repartee.
My only disappointment is that Roger and Lionel didn’t discuss this infamous moment in sports broadcasting, as seen in the video above. Guys, if you ever come back to this topic, your B-roll awaits!
