The Entertainment & Sports Programming Network is coming under fire for ceding an hour of air time to LeBron James for his announcement.
Is it news? Yes. Is it entertainment? Definitely.
Is it journalism? Hell no. And that’s what LeBron’s inquisitors, Jim Gray, Stuart Scott and Michael Wilbon, have to answer to.
Do they care? I suspect not. They get “face time” they never dreamed of.
Enjoy the show.
