ESPN Apologizes to the Patriots….Sort of

The network airs an apology while America sleeps

With the news of the Deflate-gate saga airing constantly on every news and sports show, ESPN has been consistently airing erroneous and libelous information for the past several weeks. The network has been reporting that “the Patriots taped the Rams walk-thru prior to Super Bowl XXXVI.”

This lie has been around since the Spygate story broke in 2007 by John Tomase of the Boston Herald reported it. It was proved to be false back then, Tomase admitted so much but a lie repeated often enough becomes the truth…especially in the highly sensitive area when it comes to the Patriots..

Hannah Storm reported this on-air just last week while having a conversation with Mike Ditka. She then took to Twitter, not the airwaves to retract her statement.

The network has still yet to correct the erroneous “Mort Report” of the Patriots having 11 of their 12 footballs being over 2 PSI under the league mandate during the AFC Championship Game in January.

But last night, while America slept, the network issued an apology at 12:20 a.m.

Really? no crying ex-QBs on prime-time, no ex-players with axes to grind….Steve Levy at 12:20 a.m.?

Is it enough? You be the judge…
