Espn Expects to Part with 100 Sports Journalists in Content Strategy Shift
Espn expects to part ways with 100 of its sports journalists as the Walt Disney sports media juggernaut places more focus on its rejiggered “SportsCenter” lineup as well as digital content associated with that program.
A person familiar with the situation said those employees will come from the ranks of on-air talent as well as people devoted to producing reports for its print and online outlets. Already, Paul Kuharsky, a nine-year Espn veteran who has covered the Tennessee Titans and southeastern NFL teams, indicated via Twitter that he did not expect his current contract to be renewed when it expires in July.
“Our content strategy – primarily illustrated in recent months by melding distinct, personality-driven SportsCenter TV editions and digital-only efforts with our biggest sub-brand – still needs to go further, faster…and as always, must be efficient and nimble,” said Espn President John Skipper in a memo sent to employees. “Dynamic change demands an increased focus on versatility and »

The Social Network Gets the Honest Trailer Treatment
When you look back on the movie The Social Network it’s hard to think that Mark Zuckerberg was much like the character that Jesse Eisenberg played. There was an arrogance as well as elitist tone he used throughout the movie. Don’t get me wrong, it made for an excellent piece of cinema and to this day remains one of my favorite “biopic” type films. It’s just that seeing Zuckerberg now and the way he runs his company it’s hard for me to believe he was that much of a vindictive type of guy back then. Plus the entire movie is

Dad Turns Toy Kid Cars Into Something Straight Out Of Mad Max
I feel like it might be a little early in the year to declare a “father of the year” winner but this guy’s certainly got my vote so far. When you think about kids toys, do they really have to be so “kid like?” The honest answer is “not at all.” Think about it. A child is a child. If you really wanted to, as a parent you could shift their attention to basically whatever you wanted. You might think you have to play children’s music all the time but what if from day one your baby was listening to

King Joffrey With A Pug Gets The Necessary Photoshop Battle Treatment
While I don’t completely feel bad for Jack Gleeson because let’s face it, the kid gets to be on Game of Thrones, there’s a part of me that does have some sympathy for him because he’s always associated with King Joffrey. I like him to Tom Felton who will never, ever get out of the shadow of being Draco Malfoy. So here we see Gleeson with a perfectly harmless and nice picture of him with a pug. But of course as soon as it gets out you know that all the internet sharks are going to have a field day

21 Interesting Facts About Band of Brothers
It’s hard to believe that Band of Brothers originally aired in 2001. It’s even harder to believe that it lasted only 1 season. Granted it was only intended to last one season but I can guarantee you than in today’s day and age audiences would demand and cause major havoc if the show only lasted one season. But I love the fact it was a miniseries because now it gets to be “legend” status. It will always remain one of the best series to ever air on HBO. The series tells the story of Easy Company, 506th Regiment of the
