    How do you have any idea what is even on WLW? You don't listen right? According to you only people lacking critical thinking skills and self respect are the ones listening. So unless you are part of the group you just stereotyped I would say it's fair to point out you obviously don't listen so thus your opinion doesn't hold much weight.

    How about the NRA instead of NPR?

    Drop that political portion of this discussion, please. There's a reason we have a separate area for that topic.

    Yea, well sometimes its on from listening to the game in my car, or I'm waiting to hear some Reds news. Plus, some of the idiots have been on there for years. I don't watch Springer or Maury for longer than passing by a train wreck, but it doesn't take long to assess the ignorance of the content. Same for WLW. You don't have to go to the sewer to know it smells.

    Refraining from attacking players' character, work ethic and overall level of competence isn't being a jock sniffer, it's being a professional broadcaster. Marty's job isn't to bash players; he is paid to do play-by-play and he would do well to leave the commentary to others more suited to that kind of work.

    The worst part of the whole thing is that when Marty sticks to just doing the pbp, he is still one of the best in the business. Unfortunately it seems like he spends more and more time editorializing, which turns me off as a listener.

    That is pretty fair. I do not like homer announcers, but then it seems that Marty has gone so far to the other extreme to not be a homer announcer that he treads in territory where his opinions are misinformed and inaccurate. Most of it involves a set of unrealistic expectations based on a simplistic view of what it takes to be successful at the MLB level in this game. I think that is probably true of most of the media that did not play the game at advanced levels. There is a skin of truth to "I played the game" commentary is more informed than those who know the game mostly by observation or being novice players.

    Heck, if a lot of harsh critics just tried to teach a young person the proper mechanics of throwing, catching or hitting a baseball, they would be humbled at how skilled and talented even the worst MLB players are.

    No arguments on MSNBC, but you're basically about as close to being objectively wrong as you possibly can be about NPR.

    Sorry, a news station is not supposed to exist to validate every opinion that you have and tell you how right you are. It's supposed to present you news.

    Plus, criticizing people that listen to trash like WLW or MSNBC isn't being mean or whatever, it's being, yknow, factually accurate.
