Default Do you really want a homer beat reporter ?

This has nothing to do with Glenn because I was reading Spurs and Feathers when there was nothing else to read Gamecock. I do want an honest assessment of the program, players and coaches. Just like this site. If everything was "rah,rah" I wouldn't come back.

Who has been the State's beat reporter in the past?
It seems like the P&C guy was always the main guy in SC and they always left for bigger/better jobs.

I don't want/need a homer. But I also have no need for the hater/liar/rat that equals ron.

I'd be fine with Isabelle Khurshudyan. She was the sports editor for the Daily Gamecock and appears to be doing freelance stuff for various outlets now.

I'd be fine if no local newspapers had anyone giving their opinions about the team. Just report the facts.

I think Josh Kendall is the beat reporter, and Morris is the columnist. Kendall seems pretty even-handed. Certainly, Spurrier's decisions shouldn't automatically be considered above reproach. So I don't want a homer columnist, but I also don't want a drama-stirring troll like RoMo.

If it's a choice between a fan and someone whose main motivation is to bring drama and discourse to the table...

I'll take the "homer".

BTW "Honest assessment" = "opinion". If you agree with the "assessment", then it's "honest". Otherwise it's trash/bs/smack/whatever...

I've never once read a paper article from any of these people, but I keep up with their tweets and blogs religiously. Newspapers are dying but there is still a huge market for beat writers through the internet.

She's very good but she's still a USC student. So maybe in the future!

I want the same sort of coverage from our local media that 90% of the rest of CFB gets from each of their respective local media.

No.
Just give me a guy who gives me the facts.
David Cloninger is actually pretty good. Though he is a fan and alum, he seems to be able to put that aside and call it like it is.
Also like Josh Kendall.
