Now on to MSNBC. This lady's problem seems to be that Women's professional sports don't get discussed enough on their website. I don't know what to tell you except- lack of interest. It might be a hard truth to swallow but fact is, no one really cares about Women's sports(The exception being tennis.), so why should they run stories about things people don't care about to begin with? I mean name one sports network in the US that regularly follows our cricket team, professional volleyball, Lacrosse, College level soccer and baseball. If the fan base isn't there to begin with then why report on it if no one's going to read it? That has nothing to do with sexism it has all to do about money.
In regards to the stories you claim were on their website(I have no idea of knowing because I don't follow the website and I'm not one to take someone purely at their word). So let's check these out:
- See the most depressing NFL cheerleader bikini calendar ever- Honestly, that's a pretty funny headline, I'd read it. So I guess their marketing works.
- Outrage! Pippa Middleton finishes second in ‘Rear of the Year’ contest- Now, I'm familiar with this story through a different outlet. The Rear of the Year contest is a 30 year old British tradition and I don't see how it's sexist because there is a man's division. The outrage comes from people who placed bets on her rear end to win.
- Hilarity ensues as Gilbert Arenas live-tweets his blind date- I honestly have no idea who Gilbert Arenas is- of course I'm joking. But I'm not too familiar with this story but once again if I saw a headline like that I would be interesting in knowing what's going to happen. I'm also their target audience anyway.
- Ryan Giggs’ brother’s wife slept with three other Man[chester] United Players?- I wonder how many NBC sports readers know who these people are, but it's a sex scandal so of course, being in their target audience I might check it out. Although not likely.
- Female soccer mascot ‘Donny Dog’ fired for posing in lingerie photos- That's so wrong, how dare they fire her for showing off her body willingly. That's absurd, soccer sucks. Would I read it? Probably.
- Booty call: Patriots’ Lockett says ‘It’s true,’ he had affair with Kim Kardashian- A lot of people are interested in this Kardashian person for some reason. Anything with Kim's name will generate traffic. And once again, it involves a sex scandal.
- Justin Bieber, in a Texas Rangers hat, was with Selena Gomez at the Heat-Mavericks game last night- As I said with Kim, people like this kid and anything he does makes headlines. But this is a waste and I wouldn't read it.
- Wake up call: Hold it, you mean that I missed Anna Kournikova’s birthday?- Whoa, it was her Birthday? She's a popular Tennis star and one of three I know(all women) so I'd be interested to read it if I saw that headline.
- Woman in center of Anthony Weiner scandal has brother who played for the Indians- This is a waste of bandwidth. But I guess since Congressman Weiner is a trending topic they might be trying to capitalize off of Google traffic so, that's life I guess. Weaksauce headline.
- Pippa Middleton runs triathlon, is bumped by sweaty goof- That's kind of inspiring, I mean she's a woman who ran a triathlon, those are tough. I have no idea what they mean by sweaty goof, but if I seen it I would have liked to know more. Plus they pretty much got anyone who ever searches for "Pippa Middleton's Sweat".
- Cameron Diaz: “Sex is my favorite sport”- I could care less, but some guys would enjoy reading it I guess. It depends more so on when and why she said it. If she was with a sports blogger or something. But it would probably get the 18-35 demographic to click and read as well as Google traffic.
