State of Baltimore Sports Media Fall 2010 Update: continues to grow beyond radio and into web dominance

about the devastation of downtown on summer nights due to the neglect of Angelos and his henchmen.

Here’s what Baltimore told earlier this year:

Level of Orioles satisfaction

Level of Ravens Satisfaction

Ask ANY downtown business or ANYONE associated with the beer, liquor, restaurant, hotel, tax base side of the ledger and they would tell you that the Orioles demise has devastated their business in Baltimore. That’s not a low blow, that’s just a FACT!

Take a check and cough, that’s what your old world media “partners” have done.

The weirdest part is that anyone who considers him or herself “educated” would believe any of it or be a party to it or trust a voice that has a “partnership” with the Orioles.

Can you imagine if Peter Angelos bought and wrecked the New York Yankees in 1993 how the media there would be treating 17 years of these shenanigans?

And somehow Drew and Nestor are the only two guys in Baltimore who think what the Orioles have done is a civic tragedy?

But what “journalism” is really being done these days?

It’s not even as much of getting the news as “interpreting” the news and providing analysis and cogent dialogue for the meanings and value all of this has in our lives.

Besides, CBS Radio and WBAL truly only regurgitate what The Baltimore Sun reports and steal the stuff in our WNST Text service when it gets out in warp time. The next time you get a WNST Text go ahead and do the math, do the Twitter searches and 9 times out of 10, we’re the first to let you know (see: Ravens schedule any year from 1997 ‘til now). Ask anyone who has ever been in my company – WNST takes news and information and its timeliness seriously. is a new media news source. We get you the news. We get it fast. We get it accurately. And in the future we’ll be relying on more trusted sources inside communities
