I blame Twitter. These guys are expected by their followers to Twitter every minute detail the second it happens. Even if they are good they are spending their time on things that do nothing for their employer. Basically they use any clout they possibly get from being a member of the media and they give the fruits of it away circumventing their employer. Then when it comes to writing they throw some garbage together just to fill space.
except joe person doesn't tweet out every minute detail the second it happens it's usually a couple days later. His questions are ridiculous, he has no networking abilities and the players hate him. This is the exact opposite of what you want to do as a journalist if you take pride in your job.
anybody who has known or has worked themselves in that industry knows Person is a hack and doesn't care about his job. He has no passion for the Panthers or journalism in general.
