Touré “Dismayed” By ESPN The Magazine‘s “Needlessly Shocking And Gratuitous” White Michael Vick Picture
Saying the image of a white Michael Vick was "needlessly provocative" and "doesn't fit with what I was talking about," journalist and cultural critic Touré implied the use of the image and the "What if Michael Vick were white?" headline undermined the points he attempted to make in the article. The interview, initiated by Touré after ESPN claimed he was "unavailable," came in the third hour of Patrick's program.
His appearance is noteworthy not only because of his criticism of how the article was presented, but also because it appears to violate ESPN's rules about talent appearing on non-ESPN-owned sports programs.
