He's not the only so called sports journalist from the Telegraph who is stealing a living. During the Olympics the abysmal Jonathan Liew wrote a column saying that he was not impressed by the choice of BBC pundits wondering why they had gone for an obscure American athlete that he had never heard of. Here are the relevant paragraphs.
"These days, of course, cycling is far from an obscure sport, so who had the BBC assembled on its nightly highlights programme to discuss Great Britain’s failure in the men’s road race? John McEnroe, Dame Kelly Holmes and a former 400-metre runner I had never heard of
. It was like asking Gazza, Robbie Williams and Snooki from Jersey Shore to judge the Booker Prize.....
The third pundit, by the way, was a man called Michael Johnson
. Apparently he won Olympic gold at both the 200 metres and 400 metres, and broke the 200m world record in Atlanta. He weighs 12st 2lb and carried the London 2012 torch through Wiltshire. Amazing tool, Wikipedia. Amazing."
