Dan Snyder has taken the media rounds locally this afternoon, doing interviews with the Washington Post, ESPN 980 and 106.7 The Fan to discuss his impending lawsuit with the Washington City Paper. Some of those appearances have gotten in some difficult questions, while others (106.7 The Fan specifically) were not. Then, Snyder made some rounds nationally, and proceeded to trash a lot of those local efforts.â†µ
In an interview with Mike Francesa on WFAN in New York, Snyder had some harsh words for the media landscape in D.C. Via Jimmy Traina of Sports Illustrated:
Dan Snyder on with Mike Francesa, playing the woe is me act. Says he doesn't seek attention, says DC soothes a Watergate atmosphere. #Jerkâ†µ
See, Dan, this is why Al Koken has long described your media operation as "Dan-Jazeera." Later, Snyder said he has a good relationship with the national media and an "OK" relationship with the local media, pointing to Washington Post reporter Mark Maske as a guy he gets along with well. Oy.
