Bob Costas Criticizes CBS For Not Covering ‘Augusta’s history of racism and sexism’ During The Masters
The Masters golf tournament is currently being played at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. CBS Sports has the exclusive TV rights for all the late-round action.
What no CBS commentator has ever alluded to, even in passing, even during a rain delay, even when there was time to do so, is Augusta’s history of racism and sexism. Even when people were protesting just outside the grounds—forget about taking a side—never acknowledging it. So not only will I never work the Masters because I’m not at CBS, but I’d have to say something and then I would be ejected.
