Leagues, teams feeling the blogging tensionBy
Tim Arango, a Times business reporter, chimed in today with a feature on the tensions between bloggers and the teams and leagues they cover. The piece looks at all facets of the issue — from the credentialed (PeteAbe) bloggers to the non-credentialed bloggers (us) and the various relationships with their subjects. Journalists are growing wary of sports leagues asserting control, and the sports leagues are asserting their rights as private businesses. The article doesn’t even get into the heart of the dispute between old-school media traditionalists and bloggers. How all of these tensions will one day be resolved is anyone’s guess.
