Bomani Jones' Farewell From The Morning Jones

Tuesday morning marks the final day of The Morning Jones on The Score Sirius 158.

Hosted by Bomani Jones, the sports radio host and Around the Horn regular shared his thoughts on the end of a successful 18-month run:

“On a personal level, it’s hard for me to be terribly sad. That’s largely because I know, when things are right, I’ll be able to work with everyone again. And, if things go as I hope they will eventually, we’ll be able to do the same thing we’ve been doing, just better.

The guys at Serious Sports, whom I’ve worked on videos with for the last two years, are still in Raleigh and still ready to work together. Shannon Penn and I can’t get together every Saturday morning, but we figured out how to get together to make those mockumentaries work. I’ll still hit Petey Green up for beats. Corey will one day be a big famous boxing commentator, and I’ll hope to still be relevant enough to, at the very least, book him as a guest. And Mike will still run the streets of Chicago.

Sacha, of course, will always be the kaaaaang. There’s always room for royalty. Read more

NYT Editor: "We Let Down Readers" Regarding Rhoden Jets/Pats Article

Remember that whole “William Rhoden publishes the wrong column” debacle? The Columbia Journalism Review breaks down the entire ordeal nicely, giving credit to The New York Times sports editor Tom Jolly for admitting “We let down readers” and “Simply put, we goofed.”

But the article goes further than that and writer Lauren Kirchner‘s take is a smart one: The Times‘ revisionist history opens up a slippery slope, and it’s important they recognize that fact. But, this isn’t the end of journalism as we know it. Rhoden’s mistake wasn’t changing his opinion; it was altering what he wrote without explaining his thought process. Read more

Jason Whitlock Speaks. For Three Hours.

What are you doing at 4 p.m. EST this afternoon? Cancel it.

Jason Whitlock, the extremely opinionated sports columnist for The Kansas City Star, will appear on What’s Wright with Nick Wright to explain why he quit his job after 16 years. He’s been penning columns at FoxSports.com for the past year and a half and rumors have it that he’ll join the site full time. (As always, Deadspin has more on the saga.)

But back to the matter at hand: the radio show. To land Whitlock, Wright and 610 am had to agree to the writer’s demands.

“This is what he wants: one hour where he gets to talk without commercial interruptions, one hour where I interview him, one hour where we take phone calls, he wants it live on TV, and we have to provide Gates to cater it, with a maximum tab of $300,” the host said.

Wright found these demands reasonable – 810 am, the rival station where Whitlock previously hosted a program, wouldn’t meet his absurd requirements – and landed the interview. Welcome to Train Wreck City, Mr. Wright.

Listen here. This is appointment radio, people (if there still is such a thing).
