Poynter Reviews ESPN And RMK

Poynter Review has an 18-month contract with ESPN to review and critique the network and its affiliates. The recent brouhaha over Bob Knight's reluctance, er, refusal to speak the word Kentucky has brought commentary from the reviewing entity and a response from The Worldwide Leader. Contributing were comments such as these:

“His failure to refer to the college basketball teams of Kentucky and Indiana by name is, quite frankly, childish and immature behavior that is reprehensible,” one reader wrote to the Poynter Review Project. Opined another: “That is pathetic, and it is just as pathetic that ESPN brass allow this farce to continue.” A third wrote that “I would like to know if ESPN still feels the positives of his employment continue to outweigh the potential damage to the college basketball arm of the ESPN brand.”
