House of cards arguemnt....Are they superstars because ESPN says they are with their coverage?
In terms of coverage...ESPNNEWS is different---it does do much more NHL highlights. Its more diven by this is what happening now.
With Sportscenter its about cross pollination/promoting what is on their network.
On Wed nights show there was no coverage of Lindy Ruff being fired and there also was no coverage of the snow in tuscon causing the postponement of the PGA. If they didnt own cable rights to some of the majors, and exclusive US rihgts the the british open they wouldnt cover golf either.
