A reporter who lies in a report even once is no different than a cop breaking the law, a firefighter committing arson, or a nurse poisoning a patient, even once. You are breaking your fundamental oath; you are positioning yourself as the absolute antithesis of the calling. And you should be limited to working nothing more than retail. Jason La Canfora can go to hell.

Lying is a standard part of mainstream media's business model.

1. Quote someone's click bait lie.
2. Don't correct it (not a legal requirement).
3. Profit.

I want Kaepernick to tweet out this link along with "Fake news!"

I'm surprised that in the whole "omg why are the NFL ratings down" hand-wringing, the McCarthyist blackballing of athletes and reporters for expressing pro-social-justice views seems underexplored as a potential factor in alienating audience members. The Trumpist right is barely a third of the nation. What sort of business model caters to them at the expense of the other two thirds?

After George W Bush stole his election, the MSM suddenly decided everyone in the world was a NASCAR fan and we wanted Rush Limbaugh as an NFL analyst.

This guy should never work as a reporter again. He should be writing greeting cards for Carlton Cards. Even Hallmark is too good for him.

Because the NFL ratings have been down since last year before Trump was elected.

LaCanfora is a dick. This doesn't surprise me in the least.

Speaking of teams that need a quarterback, is it bad that when the Browns announced Kevin Hogan was starting that my first reaction was "so what? he played pretty ok for them last year..." and then realized that was Cody Kessler.

Basically the Factory of Sadness is like the clone factory from Star Wars that spits out quarterback stormtroopers.

I mean, Kaepernick did say he'd stand...back in March.

Didn't they go back up after the election? And Super Bowl ratings were right in line with those of the last half decade.

And by "in line with" you mean "the lowest of the decade despite being the first SB to go into OT."

I guessing CK sits down to pee also, because, well, you know.....

Is this technically a repeat? Because even if it is it needs to be repeated.

Because he's worried about splashback? I understand the feeling, but I just can't bring myself to sit. Kudos to him.
