    ESPN Ombudsman: Mike Leach Coverage More Bias than Balance

    Ombudsman Don Ohlmeyer: Mike Leach coverage more bias than balance - ESPN

    This is a long and interesting article about the mistakes ESPN made in televising the Alamo Bowl and in covering Mike Leach's firing. This is just a piece:

    Was the telecast balanced? ESPN thinks it was -- and for me, that is the most troubling aspect of this whole affair. One ESPN decision-maker reviewed the telecast and, admitting his tally was subjective, told me the positive and negative comments about Leach were nearly equal. That may be accurate, at a high level. But the positives revolved around his X's and O's achievements as a coach. The negatives reflected on Leach's character as a man, which is where the balance was required.

    That's a critical distinction.

    Yeah it is. ESPN really stuck it to Leach.
