While most media companies' efforts to cover the Boston Marathon bombing have been overshadowed with mistakes and missteps, two media companies have stood out to me in the limited coverage I have consumed.
The first being ESPN, where Jeremy Schaap and Bob Ley outclassed the cable news networks and earned a lot of praise from our followers.
The second is a bit of surprise in Deadspin. Yes, Deadspin of Brett Favre penis sexting and Drew Magary poop stories and Lennay Kekua fame. While they've had almost a dozen of pieces that were helpful in terms of staying up to speed on the happenings in Boston, I particularly found this video extremely enjoyable and impressive. Impressive because you could EASILY mistake it for something you saw on The Daily Show or Colbert Report, perhaps a whole day later. Meanwhile, that feisty little web outfit had yet another viral piece of video that was produced and promoted very quickly.
A rather peculiar question then popped into my head: Could/should Deadspin have it's own television show?no comments
