HBO's Real Sports To Profile Deadspin

By Marcus Vanderberg Comment

Last month, HBO’s Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel profiled Sports Illustrated writer Peter King.

This month, Andrea Kremer will tackle the sports blog you love to hate, Deadspin:

“The gossip column in the daily newspaper used to be the most dreaded place for major sports figures to see their names in bold – until emerged with the motto “Without access, discretion, or favor.” By adhering to its mission, the site has carved out a unique niche in the digital media landscape. Enormously popular, Deadspin has become a significant newsmaker by demonstrating a willingness to post the most personal material about sports headliners. One national publication recently described Deadspin as “the raunchiest, funniest and most controversial sports site on the web,” and the list of sport stars it’s embarrassed continues to grow, with little sign of slowing down. Correspondent Andrea Kremer visits Deadspin’s editors to see if anything is out-of-bounds for a website that has helped re-shape the sports media landscape.”

Can we just fast-forward to after the segment when Bryant Gumbel has his typical befuddled look on his face as he tries to comprehend Kremer’s story?
