Shame on the Reveille for its predatory journalism



and shame on Mike Gegenheimer.

Who thought it was a good idea to do this? Yes his comments are inflammatory, so why did they think it would be a good decision to put the school's rep in jeopardy? They had complete control over this situation.

Its not like yahoo did the interview, I would expect them not to care about LSU's rep... but our own newspaper? cmon!

Once they knew they had something controversial, They got excited.

Yes, No one cares about the Reveille, but here's where it becomes bad for LSU.
Look at this...

FOXsports

Yahoo

B/R

Just to name a few... Obviously more news sources are preoccupied due to events in Boston.


quote:

There’s a reason a Sports Information Director from LSU told a Daily Reveille reporter his interview with senior quarterback Zach Mettenberger was finished when the word “gay” came up. The Athletic Department was likely worried a player may say something insensitive about the controversial subject.

I'm happy someone is there to protect them from predatory journalism... Thats what this is.

quote:

I in no way meant to belittle any person's way of life and feel that everyone deserves a chance to become whatever they want to be. One of my comments that was left out of Friday's article shows this.
-Alfred Blue

to who ever targeted him and decided to publish his response...


Here's the audio. Written article is slanderous in nature when compared to the audio. LINK

EDIT

quote:

Micah Bedard ?@DardDog 18h Can it be tomorrow already? Because @lsureveille is about to break some news NO BR sports reporters did. It's gonna be a good day. Collapse Reply



Nasty people

quote:

Ben Love ?@BenLoveTSD 1h @Rome_TDR Man, the amount of chest-puffing by Reveille last night and today is puzzling. What exactly did you accomplish? Where's the story?


Glad im not the only one calling them out.

So you're cool with LSU doing damage to its own rep? stupid.

You have to admit the Reveille had control over everything

Nowadays? It's always been pretty terrible.

My favorite was Shanelle Mathew's "Athletes are Modern Day Slaves" rant.

Im sure the liberal gay who wrote the story is proud of himself and is all excited about the publicity instead of how it reflected upon the school.

Many other schools would protect their own...

Blue said it. Blue represents the school. The whole quote should have been in there, but Blue still shouldnt have said what he said.

Honestly, Blue's comments are pretty much what I assume is inline with most football players.

The jocks when I was in HS called the sissy kids gay. It is probably a part of the culture of machismo within the sport.

I just wish he wasn't the one on record saying it.

You are right but schools like Texas a&m or bama would have kept this under wraps.

re: Shame on the Reveille for its predatory journalism


These reveille kids think they are badasses because they got a college kid to say something he should have kept to himself. Pitiful.

Cody Worsham ?@CodyWorsham 1h @BenLoveTSD @Rome_TDR Well, they opened up an important dialogue, for one. Something everyone can learn from.

Ben Love ?@BenLoveTSD 1h @CodyWorsham @rome_tdr By finding one well-intentioned but green kid to say one quasi-insensitive thing on campus? ...

Bill Martin ?@LSUBillMartin 59m @BenLoveTSD @codyworsham @rome_tdr any off field type interviews the Advcate/picayune give us a heads up. TDR never. That's their intention.

So every student reps the school, or only those who plays popular sports?

I'm mad at the Reveille because they put it out there... Like I said, They didnt have to do that. They had something controversial, and put it out there... Are you okay with that?

More people will give a shite what the Reveille said... Look at this...

FOXsports

Yahoo

B/R

Just to name a few... Luckily more news sources are preoccupied.
