(NY Times' William C. Rhoden):
(Ozzie) Guillén has a rule that his players accommodate reporters. “Talk to the media, they’re part of the game,”
he said during a telephone interview Friday. “The better you treat them, the better you’re going to come out.
They will find a way to break you down, especially in big cities.”"
Since "the media" are unelected and unaccountable, I've never considered them part of the game. Anyone who chooses to hang out in someone's dressing room has problems with propriety to begin with in my opinion. (sm)
