Because it would go against everything he stands for to link this himself, I’ll take care of it: The Buffalo News profiled Dan Steinberg. Choice bits include Steinz watching Bills players from his parents’ lawn, writing “terrible” stories for the school paper and sharing a general malaise towards sports media:
“Until someone convinces me that whether the Redskins or Bills win 10 games or seven in a given season matters to the future of humanity, I just can’t get too worked up over the way sports are covered and the impact of blogs on our way of life.”
It’s a nice little piece, accurately depicting my friend and Blog Show co-host. Plus, Will Leitch is quoted as calling Dan “one of the best” online journalists, which is nice. Can’t say I disagree as he’s certainly one of my favorites.
And since Dan is posting D.C. media approval ratings on the Bog but won’t include himself in the conversation, maybe we should rate him. So, taking into account his work for The Washington Post and Comcast SportsNet, and “bearing in mind that you have just two options, here’s your chance to judge [Dan Steinberg]. Choose carefully, and offer explanation below.”
