(wium) - The panelists talk about ESPN's cozy relationship with NBA All-Star LeBron James.

James used the network to announce he would sign with the Miami Heat. The panelists feel ESPN did a poor job of reporting before the announcement. Rampant speculation replaced the idea of sticking to the facts.

In addition, ESPN's Stuart Scott and Jim Gray did little more than suck up to James. Both are an embarrassment to journalism.

The panelists feel ESPN is more concerned with self-promotion than serious sports journalism. However, while the panelists (and others) are critical of ESPN's coverage, the network might have the last laugh. The program garnered impressive ratings.
