The Masters golf tournament is currently being played at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. CBS Sports has the exclusive TV rights for all the late-round action.
NBC Sports’ Bob Costas–admittedly not a neutral bystander–took aim at CBS’ coverage on Dan Patrick’s radio show. Deadspin has some of the key quotes:
What no CBS commentator has ever alluded to, even in passing, even during a rain delay, even when there was time to do so, is Augusta’s history of racism and sexism. Even when people were protesting just outside the grounds—forget about taking a side—never acknowledging it. So not only will I never work the Masters because I’m not at CBS, but I’d have to say something and then I would be ejected.Advertisement
