We feel a deep sense of injustice when we learn that our favorite sports player has cheated or when a bad call goes against our team. But is sports the last field in which we have a clear sense of right and wrong?
On December 16 at 92YTribeca, a panel of the country’s best sports writers and reporters—including ESPN The Magazine editor-at-large (and former editor-in-chief) Gary Belsky, Jeremy Schaap (E:60 senior correspondent), Seth Wickersham (ESPN The Magazine senior writer) and Jane McManus (ESPN W writer)—and 92YTribeca’s Rabbi-in-Residence Dan Ain for a free-wheeling discussion about the big issues in sports. That’s on Friday.
If you want to learn more about Gary’s media and culture diet (he subscribes to 26 magazines!), see his answers to the 92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A, below.
Where do you go for news when you start your day?
The New York Times, in print. I’m careful about rushing into digital news sites right off the bat, since in general I think we get too much information too quickly. But if I do go digital its CNN.com.
What are your favorite websites?
WSJ.com, ESPN.com, Fandango, NYTimes.com, FunnyorDie.com, Time.com’s Moneyland, New York, Wikipedia, Economist.com.
How much do you use Twitter and Facebook (or other social networking services)?
On FB several times a day, briefly, on Twitter most days (I tweet and follow).
