KHOU-11’s newspaper partner (the Chronicle) must be pleased to know that the television station’s website is running a really great newspaper column on Astros manager Phil Garner.
There’s only one problem.
It’s a newspaper article by Dallas Morning News columnist Kevin Blackistone.
I’s a pretty good read, better than anything in today’s Chronicle actually.
Now, KHOU and the Dallas Morning News are both owned by Belo, and various Belo media entities share this kind of content frequently. Still, one has to think the folks down at 801 Texas Avenue can’t be too happy that their “partner” television station turns to the Dallas newspaper for opinion columns on the local sports scene. They should, of course, be even less happy about the quality of their own sportswriters.
