That's always been the biggest problem with the Danica sensation - the media frenzy is, if anything, to the detriment of the sport in the eyes of its core audience. That's not to discredit Danica, the accomplishment, or even the significance of it in the least. But focusing so heavily on the one driver during the race broadcast does nothing but risk alienating significant numbers of people *who are already watching*! It doesn't do a damn thing to magically attract the people who aren't watching. Leave it to the mainstream media to pick up the Danica story and obsess over it, but the dedicated motorsports commentary and jouralism circles ought to focus on continuing to report on the sport as a whole and be content with a tip their hat to the accomplishment.
I have no problem with Danica the racer...shes certainly not my favorite, nor my most hated...but the media overload drives me effing crazy...as somebody already said it's the same with Lewis. I hear then name and cringe, just like a good Pavlov trained animal
