that the MSM is doing this too, and for the exact same reasons. Ryan Ermanni says RR is fired. Brandon says no, that's not the case. Then it happens the next day, and Ermanni can claim "oh they just sat on this an extra day, but my source was true".
And it's not even the people reporting it that are making it up. It's their source, or their source's source. But confirming things, verifying that people know what their talking about, that's all gone out the window in this era of beating everyone else to the punch by 75 seconds.
Joe Schad is doing it. Schefter is doing it (with slightly more reliable sources). Mortensen is doing it.
I don't blame pigskinrodeo or whatever it's called. Well, I do, but not him alone.
