ESPN "Outside the Lines" sets questionable example for journalists and reporters

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

Don’t take me as strictly bashing ESPN and writing as a fan.  I have said from the beginning that if the Saints or anyone else was proven to be involved in a bounty program or any illegal matter, then they should be punished accordingly, IF the evidence was there AND was credible.

If a major network like ESPN or a publication is prone to report on players or topics with zero accountability or fact substance, then what example is being set for current and future journalists that are striving to become what is regarded as “the best”.

It should be that every journalist and reporter must set the example for those that come behind them.  I feel fortunate enough that I can learn from those that want to leave something a little bit better than they found it.  Shouldn’t we all?

    ESPN need to fire all these guys that’s writing anything to make the worsen a person reputation. That’s not right if you don’t know the truth don’t write it because you making yourself look stupid. What Sean Payton need to do is knock whoever talking bad about him out then you guys would call him crazy. He was the head Coach so if he don’t want you guys around him nor his players he has that right. These guys need to get a life before you guys want have a job.
