ESPN's John Skipper Defends Decisions Made By Net During Fine Investigation
Published December 8, 2011
REALITY-TV SEQUEL? FOXSPORTS.com’s Jason Whitlock writes the Fine investigation has "never been a search for the truth," as it has been an "ESPN-generated, reality-TV sequel to the real-life Jerry Sandusky-Penn State tragedy." ESPN and the Syracuse Post-Standard are "leading a public lynching of Fine’s reputation before there’s ever been anything remotely resembling a fair airing of the facts." Whitlock: "The Bernie Fine Media Circus is a really bad TV show. ... Is there a search for the truth by the media organizations with the deepest investments in the Bernie Fine Media Circus? I don’t think so" (FOXSPORTS.com, 12/8).
