Leading Sports News Outlets Ignore Many Leagues

If you are a sports fan, you know most of the sports news outlets available for your viewing or reading pleasure. What you may not know is that each of the outlets that 스포츠중계 live games tend to be biased towards the properties in which they have a direct stake.

Most recently I was watching an NFL game on Fox. In the score ticker at the bottom of my screen I noticed that they were showing scores from the English Premier League. Earlier in the day, Fox had broadcast a replay of the Liverpool vs. Manchester United game. Clearly these scores are designed to increase interest in the property that they broadcast. I can’t remember CBS or NBC ever showing EPL scores in their tickers. Clearly only the EPL’s broadcast partners see fit to display these scores.

Furthermore, in the US, ESPN doesn’t give much attention to the NHL. Coverage dropped considerably after the NHL moved their games to Versus, now renamed NBC Sports. Rarely will you find a big NHL story at the top of the headlines on their espn.com homepage.
