This video from The Sports Hub’s Jim Murray is so refreshing to see these days. So many media members are too quick to block people on twitter who are critical of them. The media needs to understand that their job is to be the voice of the fans. They ask the questions that us, as fans, want answered. Some fans may be critical of media members based on their performance, but that’s just part of the job. Most of them are thin-skinned and can’t understand that. But not Big Jim Murray. As you can see, Jim will never block anybody. He believes in accountability and he’s always there to face the music when sports fans take issue with him. Major props to him, a true hero in the Sports Media industry.
