Jason Whitlock vs. fake black guy/Peyton accuser Shaun King

    Umm, so, Shaun King's tone is condescending and terrible and irate. Meanwhile, I think Jason Whitlock (the loser of many a Twitter fight) comes out on top ... by far.

    Also, did anyone read King's story about Peyton Manning? Man, that story needed editing. It was a chore reading that. Why would the NYDN green-light an investigative piece so slanted to one side? It's not a column.

    Both men should delete their tweets. It was pitiful to watch, and most Twitter fights are.
    The inherent problem with that medium is it's easier to just act like a twat and rage at the person rather than present/defend an argument.

    I prefer twat fights on sj.com over twitter.

    Don't know King from a hole in the wall. Not impressed with his work. Have known (way slightly) Jason for some time. His combativeness is a problem for him. Write something longer to make a point and let it go.
    I'm not on Twitter because if I was I'd have to stop drinking.

    That actually might have been one of the best columns Whitlock has ever written. I'm not sure I 100% agree with everything, but I thought he made his argument fairly well.

    Whitlock insulted his mother, which no man should bear lightly.

    I will say this for Shaun King: The man quarterbacked Tulane to an unbeaten season. That's no small feat.

    What did he say? I saw King reference a radio interview.
