Media Fight! Media Fight! Calkins vs. Tillery!

" ... But this piece from Tillery marks the first time one long-simmering bit of intramural squabbling has been made so plainly public. The competitiveness-bordering-on-hostility between Tillery and CA columnist Geoff Calkins (the “preferred media outlet” in question) has long been obvious to those who cover the Grizzlies and probably to astute listeners of the pair’s adjacent morning radio shows. But it was still a bit shocking to see one take a shot at the other so clearly in the pages of their own newspaper.

"One neutral party I talked to at the paper characterized the situation as 'getting out of hand' and suggested that higher ups needed to get it under control.

"But, from the outside at least, it's good theater."

Chris Herrington takes a look at the intramural squabble going on at the Commercial Appeal. And he writes about the Grizzlies, too. It's all at the Flyer's Griz blog, Beyond the Arc.
