Giants World Series Win gets scant coverage outside Bay Area; Blame it on Sandy
It's never been easy for a West Coast team to garner any attention from the eastern media society and it's especially difficult when it involves a sweep and 70 million people are preparing for a 100-year storm.
Lots of love in the West. East of the Mississippi? Team coverage aplenty of Hurricane Sandy.
Network TV news barely mentioned the Giants World Series win. Radio was a little better, but the storm was the lead. Only did ESPN Radio, (as they should), lead with the Giants demolition of the Detroit Tigers. And sure, ESPN too, (duh!)
Locally, KTVU, as the Fox affiliate, was all over the story, including the usual post-game interviews and locker room hysteria.
