On July 31 I had an approximately two-hour session with a CNN interview crew. The producer who interviewed me was neither Drew Griffin (the on-camera reporter who narrates Death Grip: Inside Pro Wrestling and interviews Vince and Linda McMahon) nor the woman seen on the WWE video interviewing John Cena.
As the dust settles on Death Grip, CNN’s investigation of pro wrestling — both on its valuable moments and on its irresponsible quoting out of context of John Cena — I think it’s more important than ever to fight against Gresham’s Law.
Another Cena/CNN Bullseye … Wednesday, November 14th, 2007 … is provided on James Caldwell’s blog at the Pro Wrestling Torch website: http://pwtorch.com/artman2/publish/font_color_770000_CALDWELL_S_TAKE_font_12/article_23571.shtml
Your intrepid blogger’s search for more and more cites of intelligent commentary on the John Cena/CNN controversy led me to yet another columnist at Pro Wrestling Torch: Bruce Mitchell. I commend to one and all the “Mitchell’s Memo” headlined “The Truth About Cable News, John Cena, and WWE” from PW Torch Newsletter #997/#998.
Wade Keller, the grand pooh bah of Pro Wrestling Torch, tells me that, contrary to the previous post on this blog, Bruce Mitchell’s current column is indeed being given away for free on the Torch website “because it was too important not to.”
