This Is Phil Mushnick’s Brain On Public Service Announcements

Posted in Sports Journalism, Sports TV at 1:00 pm by

The conscience of sports tv/radio says “enough with the scare tactics.” From Monday’s New York Post :

If we didn’t get the point the first 100 times, we’re not going to get it. It’s time for that anti-smoking ad, the one featuring the poor soul with the hole in his throat – the one that seems to appear 10 times per Met telecast – to take a week off.

Indeed, where are all the public service announcements about late start times for ballgames, overpriced sneakers or the struggles faced by white athletes charged with rape? Amazing that no one at News Corp. has thought of putting Phil in charge of one of their many television properties.
