Is ESPN going the way of MTV?
We've all heard about what happened to MTV, when they stopped playing music videos in the mid 90's and started to lose credibility from their fans. Instead of music videos, their "pure product," so to speak, they began to have a lot of talk shows and the like. Is ESPN going in the same direction? It seems as if you can't turn on the channel anymore without being talked at and told what to think. Haven't any of them ever taken a storytelling class? Show not tell, baby. Let's get back to more highlights, more sports games, and less analysis. If you are having trouble finding the material, then expand your market: more soccer games, more rugby games, more water polo. I know I can't be the only one that's fed up with being talked at. I know I can't.
