ESPN, Journalism, and Manti Te'o

The New York Times has a piece exploring ESPN's decision to not post a story on the Manti Te'o non-existent girlfriend that's worth a read. I tend to think ESPN is a bit more concerned about access than journalism as this point and it cost them two fold this time, as they didn't break the story and they didn't get an on camera interview with Te'o.

Deadspin's Editor-in-Chief, Tommy Craggs, who is quoted in the article, was interviewed on Slate's Hang Up and Listen podcast (the best sports podcast around) this week and if you're wondering about the process Deadspin took and interested in some first rate underdog journalist snark, you should check it out. It's the second segment after the promo.
