Journalism professor reads Deadspin, The Big Lead

NBC Sports says, "Independent blogs driving edgier coverage: Sites such as Sports by Brooks go where newspapers would fear to tread." The story quotes one journalism professor (Sandy Padwe, an associate professor at Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism) as saying the following: "I read Deadspin and The Big Lead every day. But both of them are unbelievably misogynistic. It's OK to scour the Internet and link to other things, some of which are obviously true. But then what is it with all the pictures of the women on there, half of them don't relate to anything going on in sports?" The story cites Sports by Brooks, The Big Lead and Deadspin as the leaders in the blogging sports news business. FYI: Here is the definition of "misogynistic."

Here is The Big Lead's response.
