Deadspin with some more solid investigative journalism

    You know, some people poo poo Deadspin's work, but I'm a fan of what they do. I also enjoy how they'll tell us their process of investigation even before the final story is complete. Latest example below:

    Exhibit A of why I'll always hate Deadspin and blogs in general:

    "(By the way, we've gotten emails indicating that the victim is indeed alive. We'll have more on this later, and we apologize for passing on rumors earlier that the man might have died.)"

    Oh, and you may want to remove "journalism" from the thread title. Journalists don't "pass on rumors."

    Should they ignore the subject? They made a mistake in saying he was dead, so they fixed their mistake.

    Is Alabama even in Deadspin's coverage area?

    Really? Do you not have a twitter feed or listen to the mothership's TV programming or radio stuff? It's not just the four-letter network, either.
