Anatomy Of A Non-Story
Earlier this week, ESPN’s Ron Jaworski said Niners quarterback Colin Kaepernick could be one of the greatest quarterbacks ever, which caused everyone on the Internet to lose their mind. I was dumbfounded that the comment got so much coverage and didn’t understand why people were treating this as a real news story. (Yes, that includes SI.com, too. ) Since I don’t really watch ESPN outside of game coverage or pregame shows, I just assumed this was a social media thing. However, after viewing this brilliant video put together by the folks at Deadspin, you can see in real time how the Worldwide Leader helped push a non-story to benefit itself.
I love you on Twitter and I’m grateful for all the Hot Clicks material. However, if I may be so bold as to give you a suggestion, I’d like to recommend you relax a little with the hashtags. Also, happy 35th birthday.
