No Women Among The ‘Most Powerful’ in Sports Media

According to Sports Illustrated’Richard Deitsch, women carry zero clout in the sports media world. Deitsch published a list of the “The 10 Most Powerful People in Sports Media” and there’s not a singe woman made the cut. There are even 10 additional honorable mentions, but still it’s all dudes, all the time.

Bill Simmons got the top spot, no argument there. But how can Deitsch ignore people like the insanely talented Jemele Hill? Or Shelley Smith? And surely Christine Brennan should’ve at least cracked the top 15.

Deitsch is much more connected than us and maybe he just couldn’t see leaving any of the 20 men off his list, but to us, this is a little ridiculous. It also appears to be indicative of sports media’s culture, which still (It’s 2013! We checked!) downplays and discounts the contributions of women.
