Deadspin has utterly loved trashing the “old media” for crappy journalism in the Te’o case. HLS as well as many other outlets have pretty much taken them to task on that assumption in the coverage of that case.
Today showed yet another example that’s just too hilarious not to highlight.
Detailed, gives context, inserts no personal bias or opinion into the piece, and came out when it was finished. Hilariously enough, includes more quotes from Ronaiah than the “everything that he said” column.
The two stories couldn’t be farther apart. If Deadspin really thinks they are trendsetting a new type of “journalism”, God help us all.
