KGO -TV has been hyping its pickup of the ESPN Monday Night Football 49ers-LA Rams game. Hyping for over a week and for good reason; the intrigue over just how Colin Kaepernick (and others, perhaps) would display his protest over racial injustice and intolerance --it turns out a 49ers player (Eric Reid) joined Kap and four Rams players in kneeling and raising a fist during the National Anthem.
If you were looking to observe this protest on KGO you'd have been out of luck.
KGO had sports anchors Larry Beil and Mike Schuman at the studio talking ...and talking...and talking before finally taking the ESPN feed --in other words, KGO fumbled the ball. If this was intentional then someone needs to be taken to task. If it was simply poor execution someone royally screwed up.
No matter one's feeling over this ongoing drama it is nevertheless a news event, particularly when it happens in your own backyard.
KGO blew it.
Plain and simple.
