With the Kentucky Derby looming I almost jokingly posted a "Barbaro Watch" this week, but I thought, "Come on don't be so snarky." Well, what do you know, this morning Scott Simon and NPR are back on the Saint Barbaro obsession.
You think I exaggerate? Take a look at the saturation coverage NPR gave Barbaro shortly after his demise. They weren't done with it, either; they followed it up with a Name Barbaro's Brothers Contest. Somehow, I missed even more Barbaro coverage last May (notice the long list of "Related NPR stories" beneath the summary of the report).
