There is a brief item in today's Toronto Globe and Mail saying that the
USFSA has said they will not accredit Christine Brennan to cover any USFSA
skating events. The reason given was her "Inside Edge" book.
The sports editor of the Washington Post (Brennan's employer) said that
they (the Post) would decide who covers skating and not the USFSA.
I must admit I was sort of puzzled by this, as the book has been out for
a couple of months. Surely if the book was so shocking and horrible and
destructive to figure skating, the USFSA would have done something before
the competitive season that just ended. Anyone know what's really going
P.S. I must add of course that I think this is a totally ridiculous move
on the USFSA's part. It makes them look far worse than anything Brennan
could have written.
