George Steinbrenner: Let's hear it for the New York Times

After George Steinbrenner died, CBS Radio (880 in the New York Area) started memorializing him in their regular 30 minute news blocks. I hated these radio snippets about Steinbrenner. I was driviing to NYC, and news radio is generally good listening. But I wanted to turn the radio off, every time their mini-pieces about G.S. came on.

I wasn't sure why I hated these radio snippets until my New York Times came the next morning, laden with columns about Steinbrenner. You need print to do justice to a subject like this. I gobbled up every word. GS is only one of thousands of topics that deserve newspapers and magazines to hash them out.
