CHICAGO – If you thought the video was difficult to watch at times, imagine having to read the tweets in front of them.
But that was the challenge for those participating in “Just Not Sports” video identified with the hashtag #MoreThanMean. It references the angry tweets received by sports reporters Julie DiCaro and Sarah Spain over the last year, focusing on the abuse which female journalists take on a daily basis.

Some of the tweets were so bad in the video that those men reading them struggled to get through them. Those powerful images have led to millions of views on Facebook and shares from big names like Kris Jenner and Ashton Kutcher.
Brad Burke and Adam Woullard played a role in getting the video completed as members of the “Just Not Sports” podcast. On Tuesday that shared their reasons for making the video with One Tree Forest Films on Sports Feed with Josh Frydman.
