Burk Watch: quotes Martha Burk as saying she told Bryant Gumbel he ought to resign from Burning Tree Country Club because of its all-male membership, but it was off-camera and thus not broadcast. As I noted yesterday, Gumbel omitted that information during his puff piece interview with Burk last night on his HBO program Real Sports.

"I told him it was wrong and he shouldn't do it," Burk said. "He mentioned it to me and I said, 'Bryant, you're wrong to do this. It's the wrong kind of statement to make not only to the public, but also to your own daughter. I think you need to reconsider what you're doing in terms of the public statement that it makes.' "

The HBO program will not feature Burk's discussion with Gumbel because she said it took place off-camera. She said she would have brought it up, but "he had control of the interview."...

CNS reporter Robert Bluey adds that he could not reach Gumbel and that HBO and Burning Tree declined comment. Considering all the hyped controvery over stonewalling by Augusta and Hootie Johnson, that's pretty funny.
