I agree in some respects.
They certainly are guilty for making fans dumber with the idiotic debate format they force down or throats while having the gall to call it in depth analysis.
As much as I like PTI, the success of that show directly led to rise of arse hats like Skip Bayless and Colin Cowherd who just say bull shite to get reactions while acting as if they are students of the game.
Its a dirty open secret they are behind the Big East getting torn to pieces b/c they were made the conference wanted to take there TV rights to the open market.
They decide what the story will be and cram it down our throats. Cowherd openly admits he doesn't even give a damn about your team if its from a "small" market. He goes all, well you must be boring b/c your ratings aren't as high so you don't deserve to be talked about. Never mind that ignores the simple logic that OF COURSE a Yankees game will have more viewers than a Reds game b/c there are a shite load more people living in that region. That doesn't mean the Reds aren't wroth talking about.
and yes, they are in the biz to make money but when you cater to ready made fanbases you get shittier overall coverage b/c of that slant.
