ABC and CBS sports coverage questioned
A two-day hearing last eck brought to a close a
four-month inquiry by the House
communications subcommittee into alleged
improprieties by both ABC and CBS sports.
According to U-p. Hcnson Moore of
Louisiana, the committee became extremely
interested in network sports' coverage after it
became known that the CBS "winner-take-all"
tennis matches between Jimmy Connors and
various opponents were not as advertised.
In July it became known that the matches were
not, in fact, w inner-take-all. ( or example, in the
second match of the series. CBS Sports President
Robert Wussler admitted that he knew the winnci
would earn $400,000 and the loser $150,000. But
CBS continued to promote the match as winner-take-all.
Not until the fourth such match did CBS
remove the winner-take-all promotion.
During questioning by subcommittee members.
Wussler argued that CBS had not tried to deceive
the public, but that (he entire episode was the
result of "sloppy procedures." But toward the end
of his testimony. Wussler confessed that he was
"personally embarrassed by the errors." He then
went on to say that he would make sure nothing
like this would happen again.
ABC. on the other hand, had been called belore
the committee to answer certain questions
regarding its "United States Boxing
Championships." The majority of questions asked
of ABC News and Sports President Koone
Arledge centered on whether the network deceived
the public with a boxing "championship" which
ABC knew did not represent the best in boxing.
ABC officials said they relied on Rtnx magaine
for the fighters' ratings, and that in retrospect, it
might have been better had the tournament been
postponed at the first sign of trouble.
Alter all the testimony had been completed.
Bv JIMMY WILKES
must committee members appeared to believe in
the networks' innocence. But some agreed with
Rep. Edward Markey of Massachusetts when he
said there remained a "gaping hole ol
responsibility. . . . You begin to wonder how big a
role prol it plays in the decision ol w hether a sports
program goes on the air." He added. "Although I
hear the right words. I'm not sure I've perceived
the right actions."
