    We have to do a better job. Story creation, fabrication and out and out lies have no place in this profession.

    Just stick to documented facts...report the story instead of trying to be the story.

    Do we really need 5 threads on this shit that happened 6 years ago and barely anyone gave a shit about even then?

    The coach cared...the players who looked up to him cared...his family cared...and as a responsible small town sports reporter who knew the guy and even published his coaching record I damn well cared. If you are going to write a story about a public figure like this guy was you had better damn well make sure it is 100% dead on balls correct before you publish...if not the story needs to be pulled. I take my responsibility as a sports journalist very seriously and I don't half ass do my job when a person's reputation is on the line. Gould didn't do his job and I don't care if this is discussed 100 years from now it is something we have to be very careful of. Now if you don't give a shit about that maybe you should do something else for a living...understand?

    Enough. As someone said, we don't need multiple threads on the same topic.
