Those are not mutually exclusive goals. There are incredibly wealthy and successful members of the media who reach a massive audience by spinning facts and taking facts out of context and grossly overexaggerating the importance of a particular issue. And, since you practice law in D.C., you are likely more aware of that than others. Further, if your law practice involves lobbying, you should be intimately aware of how one can profit immensely through such a practice.

You accused me the other day of being "reflexsively pro-Huntington." I think that you've pretty clearly demonstrated yourself to be "reflexsively pro-Kovacevic." But that's just my opinion . . .

I dunno, I'm kind of glad that someone is keeping the heat on the front office. I wish there was someone who had Jerry Jones in his sights like DK has the Nutting regime in his. He is the outlet for the utter fatigue I feel about this franchise. He can keep beating this dead horse for as long as these guys keep losing.

Because, as everybody knows, team owners don't care about revenue, they just care what columnists say.

I withdrew my opinion that you're "reflexively pro-Huntington." You certainly have supported some things that I firmly believe were wrong, but you do try to keep an open mind.

I'm definitely "pro-Kovacevic" because he's the best sportswriter in Pittsburgh. That's pretty obvious. And he's not running one of my favorite sports franchises, so I don't really have to "judge" his work in the same way I judge that of NH and his crew.

Finally, as I noted before, the BA article is a bad example of a "crusade" because BA asked DK to write it on that topic. DK didn't push it, he was asked.

Okay, that flew right over my head. Who said anything about revenue? Or even what Nutting's/owners' motivations are?
