Toward the end of the interview on Steiner's Baseball Beat, Bissinger casually included the 'F' word in his conversation. Steiner had been on his way to concluding the interview and just said in a normal tone of voice, "Next time we're going to have you wash your mouth out with soap."
Why does it matter? Why does anything matter?
It was rude to Steiner and everyone who works on the program.
The man was given a microphone to speak to a specific and dedicated audience. By his action, he said I don't need you people. Fine.
As far as any further interviews, Mr. Bissinger has proven himself to be at best a clown, a rank publicity monger.Tweet
