ESPN’s sitdown with Barack Obama is outlined in full by Awful Announcing, hands down the best sports TV blog there is. It seems awfully brief and fluff-filled, as if the Worldwide Leader was very uncomfortable with asking any tough questions. C’mon, folks – Al Gore and Jack Kemp had to answer questions about Roberto Alomar spitting in an umpire’s face in a Vice Presidential debate! We deserve to know what Obama thinks of the BCS controversy! Favre’s prospects in New York! The designated hitter!
But the obvious question is: when will ESPN sit down with John McCain? No media bias here, folks – ESPN assures AOL’s Fanhouse that they’ve asked McCain to do an interview, but haven’t gotten a call back. Well, that’s just splendid.
