Of Race, Rugs, Respect and Responsibility

As a writer of independent media coverage of Lehigh athletics, mostly focusing on football, I feel like I am a part of “media coverage” when it comes to something that happens at Lehigh, good or bad.

In a sense, I don’t separate myself from what the Morning Call does or the Express-Times does merely because I’m a blogger and they are employees of media organizations.

But when people take exception with how a Lehigh story is handled, especially as it regards to the football team, I try to understand the concerns – especially when it treads in very tough or sensitive territory.

I think it’s worthwhile to tell the world my side of how I covered a sensitive story in an effort to talk about what goes into the reporting.  Putting on a brand-new hat for myself – a sort-of Lehigh Valley press ombudsman – I’ll try to explain the decisions I made in covering the story, and attempt to look at how other organizations covered the story and acted.

Given the fact that a campus movement has arisen at least somewhat based on this coverage, I think it’s worthwhile, and necessary.

League Unveils Free Streaming Sports For All: The Patriot League Network

Major announcement coming from the @PatriotLeague this afternoon….very exciting development for 2013-14 and beyond!
— Patriot League (@PatriotLeague) July 29, 2013

Out of the blue, there it was.  What could it be?  More (gasp) expansion news?  The pro-bono hiring of Jon Gruden as Frank Tavani‘s assistant defenisive coach at Lafayette?  Free sno-cones at football’s Patriot League Media Day, scheduled for this Wednesday?

It wasn’t any of these three possibilities, but it was something even better.

Now, any Patriot League fans with a decently-fast laptop, tablet or phone will now be able to stream a large number of games over the internet.

For free.
