The relationship between the media and athletes, managers and coaches ranges from cordial to adversarial.Whether it’s a coach reaching a boiling point after hearing the same question over and over (see 49ers Head Coach Mike Singletary), or a female reporter being mistreated (see Ines Sainz) as we saw recently in San Francisco and New York, there is scrutinized behavior on both sides. Are we more interested in hearing a story quickly than we are in waiting for all the facts to come in? Does sex appeal trump journalism? How can the whole interview process improve? The SportsVirus Joe Castellano and TheDoctor Michael Duca examine the challenges reporters face when covering the sports we love to watch and read about. Just after this podcast was recorded, KPIX in San Francisco made a change for it’s Mike Singletary Show. See link: http://www.mercurynews.com/49ers/ci_16149397?nclick_check=1.
