Interesting to see the new sports media writer of Canada's national newspaper is going about his business in the same laissez faire manner as the last one.
Today, we are treated to a diatribe about how all the "embedded" reporters at the Stanley Cup final - none actually named - were hiding the true nature of Detroit defenceman Nicklas Lidstrom's injury, and that it took the courage for this intrepid Globe and Mail writer to break the news (from Calgary, apparently) that Lidstrom had suffered a testicle injury when he was slashed or speared.
It was suggested that reporters - again, all unnamed - were "complicit" with the NHL's secrecy policy on such injuries, which is about as insulting to a journalist as you can get.
Well, I'll leave the Globe writer to sort out the insults with his colleagues at his paper - some of whom are among the best in the business - but who he apparently believes are in cahoots with the NHL. But just for his information, Lidstrom's precise injury was reported by The Star last week.
Now he knows the rest of the story.
Seems you might need to read all the media reports out there - or actually attend the sporting event in question - before calling others in the business hacks.
