Here’s yet another D.C. media-related tidbit from the ESPN book that’s news to me. It comes from Tony Kornheiser, out of nowhere, during the section on the creation of ESPN2:
“Whenever ESPN2 started, Feinstein and I taped about ten things in a day, sitting outside the Capitol, just two guys yapping for ESPN2. We were called the Wise Guys. They just wanted debate. I don’t know if it was funny or not. We would debate an issue for about a minute and a half, then do another one. I never saw one of them; in fact, to this day, I’ve never seen any of them.”
This was news to me. I’ve never seen any of them, either. Would love to, though.
