    Serious Question about M&M

    Is their show a news show or a talk show?
    If it is a news show, then they shouldn't give their commentary on everything.
    If it is a talk show, then they shouldn't be trying to break news because they have no journalistic integrity to hold them accountable.

    Which is it that they have?

    I would say a sports talk/gossip show.

    Tabloid radio.

    M&M are the radio version of the National Enquirer.

    People need to realize that then and not take what they say as gospel. I don't think people that listen to them realize that.

    Dear God, it's just a radio show. Why do people get so bent? They are reading this board and laughing their arses off.

    Re: Serious Question about M&M

    It is "entertainment" with a sports theme. Throw in some obviously contrived and ridiculous opinions with occasional "breaking news" (made up if necessary) and that is what they call entertainment. When you discover that you have M&M on the radio, it is kind of like accidentally stumbling upon "The View" while flipping through channels on television It creates a frantic changing of the channel to avoid overexposure (anything over 30 seconds).

    I would ask the original poster if they have ever listened to sports radio before.

    I agree with that. It's like taking everything Mancow, Bob and Tom, or Howard Stern has to say as gospel. It's there for entertainment, and as ****** as they make me sometimes, I'm entertained.

    Re: Serious Question about M&M

    I listen for the entertainment value, and I have to admit they're very entertaining. Much better than Cotlar and Company or Jon Miller. For sports news, I go to ESPN or CNNSI.

    But I will say they were a little over the top yesterday saying ISU is a disaster and how it can't even get looks from mid-major coaches. Get a clue guys.
