Keith Olbermann Says Ines Sainz “Undermines Every Female Sports Reporter Who Knows The Game”

We’ve already heard from Glenn Beck, and now Keith Olbermann would like to put a bow on this whole Ines Sainz/New York Jets situation.

In case you’re just joining us, Sainz is the Mexican TV reporter who was allegedly harassed by the Jets in their locker room as she waited to interview quarterback Mark Sanchez. Team owner Woody Johnson personally apologized to Sainz after the incident.

That still hasn’t stopped the media poop storm. A recap: women’s media groups complained to the NFL, Sainz had to defend what she wore that day, the story got mainstream media legs thanks to Sainz’s numerous TV appearances, then an NFL player said something dumb and apologized, which sparked a whole other debate about female reporters in locker rooms. Whew.

In short, everyone, everywhere has had something to say about this situation, except Keith Olbermann. He would like to rectify that now.

    I commented to another blog yesterday that I suspect Ms. Sainz was being used and now she innocently seems to be going through the system. Therefore, I don’t agree with Keith singling her out and his media day, standards argument is ridiculous. Isn’t that one of the occasions that Dave Letterman might send Biff Henderson or Jay Leno send his “Jaywalk Allstars”, depending on who had the rights in a given year? Who is to say what reporters get access and what type of coverage is appropriate?

    As to his larger indictment of “everyone else”, I sort of have to agree.
