    Almost everyone thought the idea was misguided. But sure let’s just pick on the same 6 low hanging fruit Fox News hacks everyone else dips into when they want attention from woke twitter and paint this as a conservative argument.

    That's not her point. You don't even understand the piece you think you are ripping.

    I’m sure you know that Ferguson’s Tiger focus was a running joke here for years. There may even have been a parody thread of Ferguson ledes of historic news events.

    I remember that, to the point when, during the first major after Elle practiced her irons on him, I did a deep read on Ferguson's story to decide if I should use his story or wait for one off our supplemental wire. It was damn good.

    Self-owns: let's add 'woke twitter' to 'PC' and 'virtue signaling.'

    A guest could tell him that they have the secret to life and he would already be moving on to the next question.
     
  11. That's true.
    Does not mean Ferguson is bad at his job.
    I'm with Hondo on this one. Yeah, he mentions Tiger. Because Woods is who folks are interested in. If anything, Ferguson gets it. He's never falsely quoted anyone or made up quotes. He's stories are concise and solid.
    No, I am not Doug Ferguson. Don't know the guy. But I read him a lot. In fact, I prefer reading him over just about anyone else when it comes to day-to-day PGA coverage.

    Lots of folks are bad are their jounro jobs, if we are listing Ferguson, he's waaaaaaay down the list.

    Should she have gone to Spelman or Morgan State or Howard rather than Michigan State?
