Thanks for Roy Bragg of the San Antonio Express-News for reaching out to me about Stephen Curry’s very cute daughter.
Here is what I said to him for his column.
Yoder, however, agrees with Ed Sherman’s assertion that sports journalists add necessary context, color and analysis to the games. That added value, Sherman said, is even more vital now in a world full of data.
The post-game press conference is an important part of that job, said Sherman, whose Sherman Report also covers sports media.
“These reporters are trying to do a job on a deadline,” he said. “And they’re trying to get a quote. Curry was trying to give thoughtful answers. He’s the MVP of the league, and you want to hear what he has to say about the first game.”
Sherman, as is the case with other journalists critical of the girl being present at the table, agree that Riley is “adorable. But if that’s you (in the press conference) and if you’re doing your job and your deadline is in 15 minutes, you’re not thinking it’s so adorable.”
And I really, really do love kids. But there’s a time and place for everything.
OK, feel free to dump on me now.
