Some Call it Entertainment

From Josh Brewster at NHL Quick Shots,

It appears to me that Hockeybuzz likes the appearance of legitimacy that noting the writer’s newspaper affiliation lends, and that’s where Hockeybuzz is irresponsible. If it’s entertainment, don’t pass it off as something else (calls to Eklund for comment went unreturned).

Eklund should have some type of process for his blog site, but obviously doesn’t, which is why bloggers are looked at suspiciously by traditional journalists, and rightly so.  Much of what’s flying through the blogosphere is garbage.

Call Garner’s piece a “slob comedy,” Eklund. Put a picture of a cartoon character next to a piece like this if this is entertainment. Maybe throw a picture of John Belushi or Jim Carrey (maybe even a monkey?) on the page so that we know this is a goof, because it was presented by Hockeybuzz as something other than entertainment, for sure.

NBC Talking Extension With The NHL

from William Houston of the Globe and Mail,

The NHL is close to reaching a contract extension with NBC that will keep hockey broadcasts on the network through the 2008-09 season, sources say.

“We are in conversations with the league about an extension,” NBC spokesman Brian Walker confirmed yesterday. “I can’t comment further than that.”

The likelihood of NBC picking up the NHL option has been the subject of speculation, because of spotty ratings and starting times of the Stanley Cup final.
