Don't other teams allow journos to ride their bikes then?LaFlorecita said:Eurosport have several teams that give them access, and they report on those teams equally. Journalists can report on all teams and all riders, but they choose to report way more on Sky and their riders than on other teams and riders.wrinklyvet said:How does it differ from this sort of stuff? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1akBasTxOfILaFlorecita said:The sniping is about journo's acting like fanboys. It's not necessary to report on Sky's change of car sponsor for 3 days straight and it's also not necessary to have seperate "exclusive" photo galleries for each rider's bike. If it happens once, no problem, but when a pattern can be found it becomes an issue for some people. Only Sky gets such ridiculous attention from the media and now it's clear why Every time a team Sky member farts a journalist is ready to write a puff piece about it.wrinklyvet said:is it really true that journalists have to be always objective? And if it is, does accepting hospitality prevent this? And further, if so, is Team Sky innovative and groundbreaking in offering it? Because if not, what's this sniping all about?
