Messing with the media.

As a young man working in the world of media I see how many of my colleagues present themselves when it comes to an athlete or musician being at our studio. I also get the chance to listen to press conferences and hear some of the insane questions that get asked to members of the Green Bay Packers. Yes, some of these questions shock those who have worked in this market for over 30 years. 

It’s people who ask Aaron Rodgers questions about his possible engagement over this past year’s bye week that I love to see get messed with. So when George Karl admitted the other day to starting trade rumors to create I got a nice chuckle. You can read the whole article right here:

Karl did have a chance to work a bit in the media so he understands how journalists, reporters and others will jump on the slightest piece of information heard by a player’s agent’s sister’s cousin’s brother. I give Karl props for coming out and admitting this which is something I am sure has happened before. I also give him props for having a sense of humor and messing with the heads of many who have been in the wild world of media a lot longer than I have.
