Defining Prostitution

Prostitution isnt always about sex. My definition of prostitution is when someone charges you money for something that you should be getting for free or can recieve elsewhere for free.

That brings us to the purpose of this post. Journalistic Prostitution, what I am talking about is our good friends over at ESPN who insist that we pay them money to become an “Insider” in order to hear or rather read the news. News that by the way is availible for free on other sites such as MLB. Com or CBS Sportsline. They expect us to pay up to 6.95 a month to read what usually turns out to be a piece of crap. Buster Olney , Jason Stark,  Keith Law and Jason Gray and many others like them are nothing more than Prostitutes. Like Sex the news is something that you should be able to get for free. This being said I make this Promise to you, ” I will never make you pay to hear about the baseball players that you all love, I will continue to bash Journalistic Whores and seek out the most accurate baseball news out there.  I will always be availible to you via Email 24/7 and will answer your questions to the best of my ability. If I don’t have an answer for you I will get one. When was the last time you e-mailed Buster Olney and got a response?

It’s Christmas now by about two minutes so in the spirit of that I will stop bashing those that steal from you.2010 is going to be a great year. 2009 was a great year. From all of us at BTFP and YOM  we wish you nothing but peace and Love during this Holiday Season.  Thank you for being loyal readers and keep coming back.

    Tyson has a pretty solid right hook. I wouldn’t tell him he sucks

    It’s simple econ…supply and demand. ESPN wouldn’t charge if there weren’t customers willing to pay. Stark, Law, and the rest of the guys at ESPN are some of the best journalists around. They charge for the same reason you pay to buy Sports Illustrated or the New York Times….it’s how they make a profit. ESPN is a corporation, and corporation’s look to make marginal revenue = marginal cost aka generate the most profit possible. It’s not stealing if you agree to pay. You know the product you’re getting; if you don’t like it, don’t buy it. The guys at ESPN make their living off of being paid, hence why they charge for it. Should the Yankees give out free tickets, because baseball should be free? Should 7-11 just let people take whatever food is there, because food is free? Nope. You’re argument is terrible, and for a blogger who relies entirely on pro-writers for your information, it’s silly. We all know you’re upset because you have less writing skill than Mike Tyson, but get over it and give Olney, Gray, and company some credit.

      Your analogy has many flaws. They can charge for whatever they want to, obviously. My point is why pay for something you can get for free somewheres else and saying they are the best journalists around is like saying Damon has the best arm around. ESPN makes plenty of money off advertising revenue and thats what pays there people. Not the fact that they are prostitutes. He who lives in glass houses should cast the first stone my friend. write whatever you want on your blog but keep your negative comments to yourself. It just makes you look unintelligent. Besides maybe Tyson can write, Im certainly not going to be the one to tell him otherwise. Peace
