Neil Best leaves no stone unturned in the world of sports media.

Larry Fitzgerald Sr. is a sportswriter and proud papa

Speaking of the Super Bowl, Media Day and Rod Tidwell . . . Check out this scathing piece in Slate that dissects the recent articles lauding the journalistic objectivity of Larry Fitzgerald Jr.'s father.

(I have written about this topic on a couple of occasions, but it appears the writer of the Slate story was unaware of my efforts, thank goodness.)

Josh Levin on the sportswriter-father of the hottest receiver in the NFL:

"Fitzgerald Sr.'s column in the Minnesota Spokesman-Recorder, a weekly African-American newspaper, is less a work of journalism than a proud parent's scrapbook."

Ouch!
