I was listening to the podcast today with Bacon and I heard him say something I thought was interesting/sad and I wondered what you guys thought he should have done and how that conflicts with his role as a journalist.
He recounts a story about the Purdue game and how RR was talking with his family on what he should say at the press conference. Bacon is on the side thinking to himself that it is a bad idea to bring up. RR brings it up and it turns into another media fiasco.
My thought was Bacon is sitting right there and could have saved him from himself in this situation. Has anyone heard Bacon talk if he was conflicted by this? Obviously spending all this time together RR and Bacon form some sort of relationship and it seems like Bacon likes RR. It seems like he could have helped RR thru the Michigan mine field with some tidbits without changing his objectivity, but didn't appear to do so.
Do you think he could steer RR a little bit without effecting his objectivity or does he need to stand mute no matter what?
