PBS' "Frontline" will air an investigation into the NFL's response to concussions and head injuries among players. The investigation includes a documentary, "League Of Denial," that is set to appear Oct. 8 and 15 on PBS.
There was collaberation between PBS and ESPN on this story.
However, the New York Times reported that the NFL began pressuring ESPN after the trailer for the documentary was released on Aug. 6. The trailer shows people discussing players suffering from dementia and brain disease as a result from playing professional football. The NFL is being sued by thousands of former players claiming that the league hid information linking football-related head trauma to brain injuries.
