Video killed the newspaper reporter
During my appearance on Comcast SportsNet’s “Chicago Tribune Live” years ago, the show’s host, David Kaplan, asked what I thought about the subject being discussed because I hadn’t said a word the entire segment. That’s when a cold sweat came over me. I’d spent the last five minutes spaced out and hadn’t listened to a word anyone on the panel had said. It was like all those times when a teacher would call on you while you were daydreaming in school, only this was live TV.
