Sports Access: Public Right-to-Know vs Exclusivity

Mar 10, 2018 |

There is a constant tension in sports media between a sports event and athlete wishing to protect and monetise rights; and the need for the public to know about important events and people, both from a public interest 'right-to-know' news perspective (FIFA scandal, etc), and to provide the 'oxygen of publicity' to that sport or athlete. A panel of rights holders (event & star), journalists and media owners will discuss [argue over!] this conundrum. What balance to strike? What does the data say?
