Maloney Critical of Canadian Media

http://www.azcentral.com/sports/Blog/JimGintonio/86430

Some interesting quotes from DMGM concerning the Canadian coverage of the Coyotes. Here is a snippet:

Quote:
Is nothing else going on in Canada, they have to focus on us? Ö The country Iím from, the (Toronto) Globe & Mail I thought has just been over the top in the negativity about this marketplace, almost trying to prove their point, regardless of what else is going on. Iím really disappointed Ö

Canadian Media 101. It's all about selling papers for some outlets in Canada. Objectivity is thrown out the window in exchange for $$$$.

I kinda prefer my FO types to be above the fray, but I can certainly understand why he would speak out a little. Especially considering he's from Canada but has been given a great opportunity in this market.

There was no guarantee Maloney was going to get another shot at being a GM again,given that he was last a GM in 95. Now that he's made a name for himself with some stellar roster moves and an improving team he should defend that territory.

Last I looked, the Canadian press hadn't even reported it, just a couple of paragraphs on the signing of Upshall.

I went on the Globe & Mail website and looked at some of the past stories they wrote and honestly I don't get what all the complaining is about. I never saw 1 story that seemed like it was over the top attacking the Phoenix market. I dunno, maybe I am missing something.

objectivity doesnt exist in any mainstream media outlet period. AZ Republic 12NEWS 3TV are examples.

Just for future reference, anybody -- but especially a Coyotes fan -- is allowed to hold a pro-relocation viewpoint, and those attacking him purely for such a perspective will receive infractions. Discuss the points, not each other.

Locally, in some cases, its true. However, there are people and outlets that are good writers.
