Chicago Sun-Times columnist Ed Sherman takes on Bryant Gumbel for not disclosing his membership in the male-only Burning Tree Country Club:

HBO President Ross Greenburg, who ultimately decided to keep Gumbel's membership out of the piece, calls the issue "an unbelievable case study in journalism." He says the network struggled over whether Gumbel should have revealed his personal situation.

Greenburg says his first instinct was to disclose Gumbel's membership, but Gumbel and the producers talked him out of it. They said it would give the viewers a predisposition to the questions and serve as a distraction to the piece....
