Jack Curry: Yankee Employee

While you used to be an actual journalist (when working for the NY Times), and you're still a pretty good journalist in your new capacity at YES, you get no credit for "breaking" stories when you are an employee of the organization. When you were at the Times, if you learned something about future Times plans, that also would not have been a scoop. So lay off Olney in the future, and please be aware we will use this thread to mock you if and when we feel it necessary.

In watching Curry's coverage since joining YES, he still seems like he's trying to be a neutral reporter covering the Yankees. But since his paycheck is coming from a subdivision of the Yankees' conglomerate, it's likely that he will rarely, if ever, bite the hand that feeds him. The Yanks haven't had a crisis story yet that would force him to choose sides. If Curt Schilling had been an ex-Yankee who called out Girardi this week, I suspect Curry would have torched Schilling and protected Joe.
In today's ever-changing media environment, readers really should be aware of who is paying the reporters. One of the insights I got from the recent Penn State scandal was that the football beat writer for the local newspaper in State College was being paid by Penn State to reach journalism classes. That kind of conflict of interest could have played into his missing the biggest story of his life.
In the Yankees' new Happy World, what is the next big story somebody like Jack Curry might miss?
