Whom Do They Like Less: Downey or CBS?

February 22, 1992

We cannot blame Tim McCarver.

Someone, somewhere, sometime must have told the budding sportscaster that he had uttered a clever play on words. This seemingly harmless act unleashed a menace on us all, a man who has bombarded the airwaves with the most hackneyed and sophomoric puns. For this, the one who encouraged McCarver must be apprehended, prosecuted and jailed.

With talented, articulate and insightful journalists such as Charles Kuralt in the CBS stable, why must we have McCarver thrust upon us as a prime-time host? Why not relegate him to a demonstration sport such as freestyle skiing, never again to be seen at the Olympics?
