The demand drives the good coverage, which really is good. Where is the demand for quality news? Judging by the success of Fox News, it doesn’t exists.

Why? Because it totally glosses over why ESPN is such a “behemoth” – the outrageous and wholly unjustified price it gets per each cable subscriber in the U.S. It’s wildly over the value it actually delivers to advertisers, and why legislation is pending to go a la carte in the cable industry, so companies like ESPN/Disney can’t hijack dollars out of people who don’t watch or want its product.
