So if they say Adele is the president of the United States in a pamphlet . A journalist will not verify the information first before running with it. It was obvious the information was wrong or incomplete.
Holy exaggeration batman.

That analogy works if the following are assumed:

1. The pamphlet comes from the white house, senate, house, or all three in a joint statement
2. we don't have a public election process that requires voting
3. the president of the US can be removed and replaced at any given point in time as long as the Senate and the House agree on removing/replacing
3a. this requires 2 to be true for this to be a remote possibility

Like dude?

So, your opinion is that when a member of the media is given a media kit for a press conference by the organization calling the press conference, that the media member is in the wrong for including information from that media kit in a post about the organization and its event without verifying the information first?

Really?

No that is not what i am saying. In this scenario, it was obvious the list was wrong. He reported earlier that C Wells was turnng pro. A little bit of confirmation should have been done.

Wells’s comments after his last game at Folsom should be confirmed?

this is about Lytle. His name was in the materials handed to him by CU. You seriously want him to confirm it?

Not defending bb, but I think context is important.

In your described situation, if the media reports "organization is stating that fact is true", that's appropriate. If the media reports "fact is true", that's different. Especially if the fact isn't true.

Most media tend to be careful in stating it as the former when a single source hasn't been verified, even if that slice is generally deemed credible.

I do think sports repoeting is often held to a lower standard than other genres of journalism.

No, i didn't say anything about citations.

Here's an example from a few minutes ago near the top of my feed. CNN isn't saying "the Senate won't meet the deadline", rather saying "'Biden says they won't meet the deadline".

The difference in wording may be nuanced but the difference in meaning is profound.

20 by my count.

Now at catastrophic levels.

Best young defender (Gonzo) best young offensive player (Rice) , 3/4 of the starting defensive backfield, one of your best pass rushers (Wells), 1 of your few solid OL (Purcell), two highly rated offensive players (Clayton and Shenault). This is a disaster.

HCKD cannot recruit. He can't keep his talented players. He has had no real success in the portal. I wonder if they will even have enough players to field a team. Will we have the talent to compare to the post death penalty SMU squad?

Wells not on your list and would make it 20.
