Viewing and Reading for the Weekend

From The Poynter Report with Tom Jones:

  • LIV Golf. Have you heard of it? It’s the controversial new golf tour funded by the Saudi Arabian government. It’s continuing to attract big names despite where the money is coming from. The Washington Post’s Ben Strauss writes, “LIV Golf’s future on U.S. TV is uncertain, but it certainly has one.”
  • Speaking of which, this week’s LIV tournament is at a Donald Trump golf course in New Jersey — practically in the shadow of the 9/11 site. Boomer Esiason, the former NFL quarterback, has an extremely popular radio show on New York City’s WFAN and went on an angry rant about the new LIV Golf tour and Trump.
