Gaby Sanchez and his wife Judy Sanchez, a Miami Herald sports reporter, were married on January 9, 2010. Judy’s maiden name was Erwin. Judy traveled with Gaby Sanchez to his first All-Star Game in Phoenix, and is writing a blow by blow recap of their time together. It’s a great read from someone actually experiencing the hoopla this week.
Aside from her almost diary style entries on the trip to Phoenix, we have to ask the question. Is it journalistically ethical to have a wife at least partially covering her husband’s team? There is nothing to indicate she’s been nothing other than fair and impartial, and this is in no way a commentary against Judy, but what if something nefarious did come up? Could we trust all parties to recuse herself and allow others to handle impartially?
