  • Reopening Sports: ‘Real Sports’ Bryant Gumbel On “Greed” Fueled Pro Leagues Wanting To Start Up Amidst COVID-19 Realities & Second Wave Worries

    “Any quick history lesson about how owners in sports have acted over time, how they’ve interacted with communities and governments and public coffers and everything else will tell you that greed dictates basically whatever they try to do,” Bryant Gumbel bluntly says of the motivation behind leagues like the NFL, NBA, MLB and the NHL to get their players back in action from the coronavirus lockdown of the past two months. “I think they view athletes as commodities to get them to an end,” the host of HBO’s Real Sports added. Never one to play it safe over the 25-seasons...

    Bryant Gumbel, who is now hosting a show on HBO called Real Sports, dished out some serious smack talk against the NRA in an interview with fabulist rag Rolling Stone.Gumbel told the magazine the NRA are “pigs” who “don’t care about human life” when he was asked about a segment he featured on the “Eat What You Kill” movement.“There are a few things I hate more than the NRA,” Gumbel said. “I mean truly.

    ...A 'Curse' on America In an interview with Rolling Stone, HBO host Bryant Gumbel was asked about the National Rifle Association and a segment he did on his Real Sports show about the "Eat what you kill" movement. There are a few things I hate more than the NRA. I mean truly. I think they're pigs. I think they don't care about human life. I think they are a curse upon the American landscape. So we got that on the record. That said, I'm willing to separate that this story had nothing to do with that. It's not a gun...
  • NBC Fires Employee for Posting 'What Is the Internet' Clip

    An NBC worker who posted old footage from the "Today" show of the hosts wondering, "What is the Internet anyway?" has been fired, the network confirmed, saying the person had a history of distributing material without permission. The footage, in which Katie Couric, Bryant Gumbel and Elizabeth Vargas try to figure out the Internet and e-mail addresses, made the rounds via said Internet last week, posted and re-posted to Facebook pages and sent via e-mail. Filmed in 1994, the clip features Gumbel demanding, with a befuddled expression: "What is the Internet anyway?" and Couric stumbling to define it as: "that...

    BYRANT GUMBEL'S LUNG CANCER IS FALSE: News anchor’s friend disputes reports Sean Cassidy says condition would be 'much more aggressive' than what Gumbel had By Chris Richburg (December 10, 2009) *News of Bryant Gumbel’s battle with lung cancer may have been premature, according to a friend of the television personality who says Gumbel donesn't have the condition. Despite Gumbel’s admission to going under the knife, Sean Cassidy revealed the former “Today Show” host’s situation would have been more serious had he actually been a lung cancer victim. "A tumor was removed from his chest cavity. It was malignant. It was...

    <p>ALEXANDRIA, VA, June 6, 2007 ( - Yesterday, while filling-in for Regis Philbin on Live with Regis and Kelly, CBS News Early Show anchor Bryant Gumbel actually boasted about once calling conservative culture-critic Robert Knight "a f***ing idiot". Gumbel used the actual word at the end of a June 29, 2000 interview on CBS's The Early Show about whether active homosexuals should work as scoutmasters in the Boy Scouts. Mr. Knight, then with the Family Research Council, is now the director of the Media Research Center's Culture (MRC) and Media Institute.</p>

    PROVO, Utah -- Rep. Chris Cannon is a loyal Republican with the endorsement of the National Rifle Association and a 100 percent rating from the American Conservative Union. He is unmarred by the ethical scandals that have roiled Washington in this election season.... Tuesday's matchup in Utah is viewed as a bellwether for how immigration issues play out nationwide. "If you want to throw the bums out, you can do that," Mr. Cannon said during his debate with Mr. Jacob earlier this month. Responded Mr. Jacob: "When you talk about throwing the bums out, I'm just working on one right...

       Not Enough Buckwheat In The Pancakes! March 2, 2006 I’m surprised that this year’s Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race didn’t remind HBO’s Bryant Gumbel of “a GOP convention”.  You know those sled dog teams...there simply were not enough black Labs...err...I mean...chocolate Labs...I meant...just plain old Labrador retrievers.  Well...he still has time to take a shot at the complexion of the mushers.  When Gumbel belittled the XX Olympic Winter Games, was he really postulating that Blacks are a breed apart from the rest of humanity?  Was he comparing humanity to the canine world where there are admitted genetic and behavioral...

    The Winter of Bryant’s Discontent HBO’s Bryant Gumbel sounded off about the Winter Olympics, finding them deficient in athletic prowess, something he attributed to the lack of black athletes. “So try not to laugh when someone says these are the world’s greatest athletes, despite a paucity of blacks that makes the Winter Games look like a GOP convention,” Gumbel said. Gumbel immediately became the focus of right-wing scolds. We here at The Blogaroni don’t usually find ourselves providing fodder for such a crowd. However, in this case it’s pretty clear. Gimbel was wrong. Ten Reasons the Winter Olympics is NOT...

    Some cast aside traditional loyalties... Adam Hunter, an ambitious law student with bright eyes, an easy smile, and plenty of charisma, seems practically destined for politics... a first-year law student at Howard University, a historically black campus with a long record of liberal activism. He has political ambitions of his own -- but not with the Democrats. Instead, Hunter, who as an undergraduate headed Howard's chapter of College Republicans, sees himself as part of a younger generation of African-Americans. He is ready to cast aside traditional loyalties to the Democratic Party and forge his own political identity. ''There's a lot...

    Where is the outrage that was manufactured to run Rush Limbaugh off the air? Is it absent because Gumbel is allegedly black? So just picture for a moment, if you will, that you're watching SportsCenter tonight and Dan Patrick says, "The lack of whites in the NBA makes it look like a welfare office." Think that would get buried like Gumbel's comments? For what it's worth, maybe Gumbel should do some research on the emerging face of the GOP.

    There were some eye-opening remarks from Bryant Gumbel on the most recent episode of HBO's Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel. According to a transcript posted by a television columnist named Seth Frelich, Gumbel said the following in his closing monologue last week (emphasis mine): "Finally, tonight, the Winter Games. Count me among those who don’t care about them and won’t watch them ... Because they’re so trying ... Like, try not to be incredulous when someone attempts to link these games to those of the ancient Greeks who never heard of skating or skiing. So try not to laugh when...

    About the Rendlesham Incident In late December 1980, in Rendlesham Forest, England, numerous U.S. military personnel witnessed what has come to be regarded as the most significant military-UFO incident in the history of Great Britain. The servicemen were posted to the RAF Bentwaters and RAF Woodbridge facilities — which together constitute one of the largest NATO bases in rural Suffolk, East Anglia — when, on December 27, they noticed unusual lights and activity near the base's back gate. A trio of security patrolmen led by Jim Penniston, thinking a military aircraft might be down or in distress, ventured into Rendlesham...

    As he prepares to leave CBS’s The Early Show, it is time that we remember the man who is Bryant Gumbel. Throughout his broadcast career, there has never been a more mean-spirited individual in the media. I must admit that I will be delighted to see him disappear from morning news. Gumbel is one of the most hateful, bitter partisans that I have ever seen in broadcasting. He makes no attempt to appear unbiased in his politics. Gumbel is the epitome of "unprofessionalism." He is rude to his guests, unkind to his colleagues, unfaithful to his wife, and disrepectful of...
