How in the World Does Bob Nightengale still have a Job?
Being a journalist in the sports industry is a privilege. Anyone can try doing it, but only so many can actually be good at it. I think Bob Nightengale of USA Today should stop trying. He’s been doing this for over two decades. I don’t understand how he stinks at his job.
Seriously, we’ll look at some of his god-awful tweets and see just how terrible he is. Nightengale makes it seem like anyone can do this job. I’m sure Julia Shoffner could’ve produced better work than Nightengale has over his career.
That may be a stretch. Regardless, he’s still pretty terrible with his work for MLB. Most recently, he broke the news that Commissioner Rob Manfred isn’t optimistic the A’s will get a new stadium in Oakland and believes the team will move to Las Vegas.
Ah, but of course, he didn’t actually provide legit facts. Manfred apparently didn’t say that at all, and after listening to the interview it was very clear that he didn’t.
Did he even listen to the interview? Clearly not, and if he did then he’s due for a hearing check. It gets better, however. A day after this, the Kansas City Royals hired Rays bench coach Matt Quatraro. Nightengale didn’t quite understand and sent a tweet that simply made no sense.
At least he was smart enough to delete this one. We’ll highlight one more, and then I’ll leave you a list of hilarious tweets. When the A’s drafted Kyler Murray back in 2016, there was speculation whether he’d even stay with baseball. He didn’t, and four minutes AFTER Murray announced he was going to the NFL, Nightengale tweeted this:
Excellent reporting. I’m pretty sure Murray wouldn’t report to spring training if he committed to the NFL. But what do I know, I’m just an intern. Anyways, let’s cap this off by looking at some amazingly embarrassing tweets by Nightengale.
