Check out the replay of his show (pretty good for an insufferable snark, actually) at 12:00am on ESPN.

 

He opens the show with a rip job on Manish that would make Chris Christie blush

He absolutely destroyed Manish. It was great. Put Manish's mug shot up there several times while ripping him.

Manish started out so solid.  He seemed like he would buck the trend of getting the easy headlines with crap assumptions presented as fact and made-up B.S. to grab attention.  But he didn't.  He went all Lady-Gaga on us.  Couldn't wait for the next chance to draw attention to himself and went about it in the most phony, insufferable way.  What a douche.

I haven't seen the piece yet, but let me get this straight--ESPN rolled Keith Olbermann out there to rail about journalistic ethics and publicity-seeking?

Are you f*cking serious?

Pretty awesome. I can't remember the last time a reporter got so openly villified for being a scumbag. It's kind of unheard of, and on Sportscenter no less. Haha

Who's more unprofessional? Mehta the rumor monger or Olberman the boor who has been fired from his last 4 jobs.

True, but I do love Manish getting flamed nationally.

Olbermann's an egomaniac, but he's usually right. Can't wait to watch this.

The real moral to this story is, if you are one of the 4 people who still have a subscription to the NYDN, cancel it now

I am usually in the camp of let the writers do what they do.  I never really react too much with anything Cimini writes, whether I agree with it or not.  But, the articles Manish wrote last week where we makes these wild ass assumptions and then passes them off as known facts were worthy of the criticism he has been getting.  I can't say anything about the pieces other than them being out and out hatchet jobs.

cant stand Olberman but he completely nailed this one!  This has been the reality of Jets coverage since Tebow showed up a year ago.  Big difference between reporting on  and creating news

Every single reporter who writes about sports for the NYDN is defending him...no one else though.  And that clip is PRICELESS.  I loved Olbermann ripping into Manish, who deserves whatever he gets.  I personally think the NYDN should have their press passes revoked because they aren't a respectable newspaper anymore.  That's like giving TMZ a pass to cover the Jets and have access to the locker room.
