OUTSIDE THE LINES -- IS TALK RADIO OUT OF BOUNDS?
ESPN's Bob Ley hosted an "Outside the Lines" last night
chronicling "Sports Talk Mania." Ley reported that there are 130
all-sports stations in the nation today up from only four just
five years ago. ESPN examined the lack of journalistic integrity
among many of the hosts, the effect the medium has on players,
coaches and management. Bulls coach Phil Jackson, on whether he
listens to talk radio: "I listen to National Public Radio, I'd
rather be informed than misinformed" ("Outside the Lines," 6/19).
