Ronn Owens Covering Bill Walsh Memorial Live...Where was the coverage of Chauncey Bailey?
I wrote Owens an email to that effect yesterday....haven't heard back.
But I'm stunned that a football coach can command a memorial at Candlestick, covered live by the biggest local radio station, KGO-AM (810) while the murder of an African American journalist is almost a footnote.
To me it once again demonstrates the not-so-subtle racism in this country, and I agree with African American groups who say that if this were a white journalist it would have gotten far more coverage.
What do you think? Your comments here will definitely be read by the managers of KGO.
