Most of us see sports as a welcome - even blessed - relief from the challenges and frustrations of everyday life. We want to sit back, open a beer, and enjoy the game.
But many of those who bring us the game have a different agenda - they use their broadcasting platforms to harangue us with their own politically correct preoccupations. If a seventh-round NFL draft pick who can't make the team or an over-the-hill basketball player declares he's gay, he gets wall-to-wall media coverage and is hailed as a hero. If a stripper accuses college lacrosse players of rape, liberal sports reporters lead the lynch mob - with no apologies when the bearers of "white privilege" are proven innocent.
In his blistering new audiobook, Bias in the Booth, sports reporter and commentator Dylan Gwinn takes you inside the sports media spin machine to reveal what they hope you won't notice: The sports media are no different from the news and entertainment media.
