Specifically, it was wife Lisa who used the language, and it was in response to the reporter showing up at Dr. Oz's office uninvited and apparently fabricating a scheduled interview appointment with Dr. Oz, then calling a cell phone number for Oz's wife that she found on the Internet. Neither Lisa nor the reporter come off looking good, but a headline that implies that Oz used vulgar or misogynistic language in describing the reporter is misleading, so the media comes off looking the worst, IMO.

Media no longer exists to report or inform the public or practice journalism in an ethical manner. It's just what they do these days. They're propaganda outlets for whatever causes or politics their owners support. We still need a free press. Hopefully it will work itself out when the owners realize what they've done. But it will take a while. I'm not holding my breath.

I saw a Dr. Oz for the Senate commercial on ESPN during Penn State’s bowl game.

Levar Burton did the coin toss at the Rose Bowl.

I have no information one way or the other, but I'm curious if they'll let Ken host when a player gets close to his 74-game record.

Can't imagine why not...he doesn't seem the Joe West/Tim Donaghy type
The best thing that Neil Armstrong ever did, was to let us all imagine we were him.

Games 74-75 would be March 14 and 15, assuming no more tournaments.
