Media Benoit Coverage in a Nutshell

This clip of Kevin Nash on Fox News to me epitomized the media coverage we've seen thus far perfectly. Really good job by Nash in making reasoned points and trying to get at the right answers without speculating or BSing. Meanwhile you've got a smarmy, condescending talking head talking completely out of her ass and disrespecting Nash while he's giving legitimate answers that I don't doubt for a second are honest. All this because he isn't providing the easy, simplistic answers she wants.

That was absolutely rediculous. I honestly hope anyone who sees this, whether they agree with Kevin Nash's point of view or not, can acknowledge that that isn't journalism.

It's not even debate. It's making incredulous statements and not giving the other person time to show how rediculous they are. Oh, Fox News.

What a reactionary waste of a channel.

I totally agree with you Todd. That woman was totally off, and Nash had some great points. What really pissed me off was that they cut the interview the minute he started asking her if she ever took steroids.

Just crap....

Same thing with Warrior. I never thought I would agree with anything he says, but he was making good points and they would not let him get a word out....

To be fair, it's not just Fox News that's culpable here.

I agree the media wants the "sexy" story of steroids. But to me the more important clip from last night was the Mero/Blackman exchange.

God Bless Mero, he said it perfectly. Who knows how long the national spotlight is going to be on professional wrestling? And if the spotlight is on because of this tragedy and the media's need to want the "sexy" story than so be it.

This attention needs to be used to make something positive happen. To make it so guys like Mero don't have to keep going to funerals, so husbands and fathers aren't lost. Blackman is right, nobody forces wrestlers to live the lifestyle that they do. But in the end, Mero brought it out of him. Many have to do the things they do in order to survive this brutal and "horrible" business.

Stronger drug tests, less dates, a pseudo-offseason something needs to be done. Maybe the media spotlight can force something, however i doubt it.
