When ESPN came out with ESPN 2 and ESPN News, I was impressed. When they figured out 150 ways to skin the same footage/content such as PTI (Pardon the Interruption) or Around the Horn around its iconic cash-cow, Sportscenter, I was really impressed. "50 states in 50 days" was cute...didn't do it for me, but I appreciate the creativity.
However...gotta draw the line with ESPN Hollywood and something I saw today called "Classic News" which apparently is today's news about yesterday's events (and by yesterday, we're referring to years ago) Huh? Methinks someone is getting greedy or losing their way in the marshes of line extension.
