    and the globe quote
    AP/ESPN conviniently added a single word and ommitted BB's explanation of his interpretation.

    and it doesnt end there..

    whereas the actual quote in the globe was why he didnt respond to the spygate story earlier.

    ESPN is just riding the Rams story .Pathetic case of journalism

    Can't say I am surprised, they won't stop until BB is dead and buried.
    Pathetic.

    my friend just sent me a text message "so...belichick is f'd"

    I called him back and no sooner than I said, "are you kidding? Tonights news is the best we've had in weeks" he interrupted me with "yeah i was watching espn and..."

    amazing phenomenon, the spin. It's like night and day. I promptly sent him a link to the reiss article and he couldnt believe the difference. The important and obvious ommisions from the ap/espn. What a world we live in.

    I, like everybody, just want the truth to come out, good or bad. But no matter what, it won't be reported responsibly.

    Somebody should tell Mike Reiss and the Globe how their article is being twisted. Pathetic journalism.

    Wow thats bad. I skimmed the ESPN article so I didn't notice that the first time around. And to think, I was glad they finally disclosed full quotes. :mad: Those bastards... Who the hell runs them bc seriously this bias is UNBELIEVABLE

    I just sent Reiss an email informing him about this. I thought that he should know. ESPN is an absolute DISGRACE. I will never visit their website or watch any of their sports coverage again. They are as dead to me as the Herald. :mad:

    Good point, as long as Brady has 3 rings and is still winning they will find a way to cheapen it.

    I thought I avoided ESPN enough, but you're right. The only approach one can truly take with espn, is the same one a majority of us have taken on the herald. I will officially stay away from anything espn. Only reading what is posted here from now on....same goes for the AP

    I replied to Reiss' reply to me, telling him how they are twisting what he wrote.

    It's really a shame...I thought the truth shall set you free?

    I just e-mailed Le Anne Schreiber with this thread linked and wrote that this deserves her immediate attention.

    Just wanted to say thanks for being the one great Pats reporter in Boston. Loved the article!

    Steve

    thanks steve. i think there are a lot of great reporters in town. i was just fortunate to be in position to get the story.

    --mike

    Then I wrote to him saying how ESPN is bastardizing his story.

    Good job, could not find her email this AM so just sent one to ESPN in general.. sure Ms. Schreiber will respond, or at least hope she will.

    I emailed her also..
