    Nothing is worse than a Magary imitator, but he still makes the occasional visit to Deadspin worth it.
    That was an entertaining takedown.

    Lighten up, Dick. It was a fun read.

    Except they do this shit all ... the ... time.

    It's bullshit. They basically reprinted Keown's story. And at least in this case it was in the interest of media criticism. To keep the content flowing, they usually just regurgitate news and rip off huge blocs of text from the people who actually did the reporting.

    On the scale of things to be outraged about this would seem to have a low priority when compared to say underage sex slaves.

    I guess maybe I'm just not a fan of that format. But it read like Magary woke up today, got a phone alert "Angry Column Deadline Approaching," said OH SHIT I FORGOT and found the first thing he could from this morning's news dump.

    Damn it, it should outrage people here. Our colleagues and ex-colleagues are out there working hard trying to get information that essentially justifies the continued financial existence of sports journalism. And these fuckers have no shame about essentially reprinting it within the hour it posts. They do it all the time. It's bullshit. It's outrageous. Fuck Deadspin.

    I'm on board with the idea of Deadspin/Gawker dying a painful death, but Magary is the one remaining writer I enjoy. I can't read him too much, but every once in a while he makes me laugh my ass off. This happens to be one of those times.
