(via Awful Announcing)
Dino Costa is a world class scum bucket. This is widely known.
The disgraced former talk jock turned from terrestrial radio to satellite them from satellite to a subscriber-only internet-only product. There and his dozen or so homophobic, racist bible-thumping clones share their distain for the outside media via Costa’s rants and his “blog”.
The problem is, without the outside media Costa wouldn’t have a product at all. Hidden behind Costa’s pay-wall (his subscribers are asked to pay $6/mo to imbibe his bullshit) are articles he stole directly from real sports writers.
How much stolen content is there? Lord only knows. I, for one, am not about to pay his ransom in order to view the articles contained at Costa’s site. The folks at Awful Announcing apparently bought their way in, however, and they found one of their articles there, copied verbatim, with no link to the original article or acknowledgement of where it came from.
The piece encourages ESPN to reunite Dan Patrick and Keith Olberman behind the Sport Center desk. The author is Matt Yoder and the publication date was May 22, 2014. Costa didn’t bother changing so much as punctuation. All he altered was the headline.
The world didn’t need additional evidence that Costa was a waste a useless waste of flesh but he provided it anyway. Now it is incumbent on the PR departments of the Rockies, Avalanche, Nuggets and Broncos to refuse Costa press credentials. He cannot be allowed to represent the Denver media.
