President Obama Defends Al Jazeera Sports Jan 7, 2016 - 2:16
WASHINGTON, D..C.—President Barack Hussein Obama endorsed Al Jazeera’s “socially aware sports coverage” and hinted that “folks who cross the line” in their attacks on this “grand news organization” may be guilty of hate speech. There is, the president concluded, "no greater problem threatening our nation today than hate speech."
The president made his remarks in the wake of spirited attacks on Al Jazeera for its recent report associating Denver Bronco’s backup quarterback Peyton Manning with human growth hormones. After Al Jazeera had published its report last week (first baseman Ryan Howard of the Phillies and first baseman Ryan Zimmerman of the Nationals were also fingered in the report), the mainstream sports media contracted a flaming case of hair on fire.
“These people are trying to take down America in any way possible,” growled former Chicago Bears Super Bowl-winning coach Mike Ditka. “They hate us for our football icons because they think they invented football, so now they come after Peyton Manning. Al Jazeera is not a credible news organization. They’re out there spreading garbage. That’s what they do, yet we give them credibility by talking about it.”
CBS’s Jim Nantz went Ditka one better, refusing to cover the story at all.
“If we talk about it, we only continue to breathe life into a story that, on all levels, is a non-story,” said Mr. Nantz, who declined to mention the allegations in his coverage of last weekend’s Broncos game. “Why add another layer to it?”
Messers Nance and Ditka—and other sportscasters like Keith Olbermann, Stephen A. Smith, Jim Rome, and Tony Kornheiser—based their attacks on Al Jazeera on the fact that its star informant, Charlie Sly, issued the following denial before the Al Jazeera story was published:
“It has come to my attention that the broadcaster Al Jazeera has somehow obtained recordings or communications of me making statements concerning a number of athletes, and that Al Jazeera plans to air a program about them,” Mr. Sly said in a YouTube post. “To be clear: I am recanting any such statements and there is no truth to any statement of mine that Al Jazeera plans to air. Under no circumstances should any of those statements, recordings or communications be aired.”
No biggie, replied Al Jazeerz, we have a second witness ready to confirm the truth of what Charlie Sly is recanting.
For his part, President Obama claimed that “other journalists' reflexive dismissal of Al Jazeera's allegations without bothering to examine the evidence says more about the traditional sports media—and its prejudice against a news source with an Arabic name—than it does about the folks on the investigative team at Al Jazeera, which spent eight months on the investigation.”
The president then strongly hinted that he might post his 2016 NCAA basketball Tournament brackets on Al Jazeera rather than on ESPN as he has done in the past.
Finally, while stopping short of saying the loud, clamoring defense of Mr. Manning was racially motivated, President Obama did say to reporters, "If I had a son who played quarterback, he'd look like Cam Newton."
