US Masters Golf BIAS
April 11, 2009 4:15pm CST
Hi All I must write to complain at the bias shown by the american producers of the US masters golf. I have just watched for an hour and although Rory Sabbatini (south Africa) Lee Westwood and Ian Poulter (English) were on scores of -4 there has not been sight of them in the programme, for the last hour. YET tiger woods and phil mickleson both on -2 (for non golfers -2 is not as good as -4) are shown all the time their tee shots their walk down the fairway their putts and then 2 or 3 replays when they sink one. The producers then show views of Augusta the flowers the trees the lakes for about 5 minutes I WANT TO WATCH GOLF.And watch the other players even Sergio who was on -2 has turned invisible Basically I think that the coverage of a MAJOR sports event is extremely poor and ruins the experience of the event Jim

I not really into sports but I do notice that the emphasis it put more on the sports announcers analysis then what is actually going on in the game. I don't need glitz and glamor because sports can get ugly but that is what makes it entertaining. The producers are just trying to market to a certain audience so that is probably why the camera seems to have a short of "Short-attention span".
