Every single person in this country does the same thing pal. You pick and choose what parts of the bible to support. I believe some of the interpretations regarding homosexuality in the bible are vastly incorrect. I've done a lot of research on it actually. The bible barely even addresses the issue at all.

They baited him into saying it. I'm sure they were pleased with themselves.

Oh yea don't get me wrong, they aren't good at their jobs. But they aren't to blame for reporting on this.


So there was nothing they could have done? Why not just have the neutral responses by the other players. They were DROOLING over publishing this.

Because that's not reporting the full story... They had supportive comments from both Rivers AND Miles in the same article.

I don't think you understand what this means. He's free to say whatever he likes, but that doesn't mean that there are not consequences for his statements. Being a free country means that other people can criticize his statements.


I understand what it means perfectly, but who give a flying fruit bar if Alfred Blue or any other athlete for that matter calls gays sissies?

I mean really? Do you not have anything better to do with your life than to track and estalk famous people for them to do/say something stupid so you can call them out on an internet forum?

If people stopped giving a shite about famous people and just went about their lives instead of making it a huge media event if person X got divorced, or called his/her SO names or whatever, then the media would stop covering it, and we wouldn't have TV shows featuring a sex film star and her sisters.

quote:

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.


They had an agenda... Im glad someone was there to get the reporter away from mett

Blue said they left out part of his statements... thats not full reporting. So there's a clear agenda there that you can't deny.

and when has "the full story" ever been the rule for media?

For good journalists? Always.

Blue said they left out part of his statements.


Cool, do we know this for a fact? Or is he just saying that to save face? Do you have the unaltered quote?

nailed... Everyone knows this is what happened. They are just too engrained in the lib agenda to admit its poor behavior.

I didn't call him out or estalk him. You seem pretty interested in this yourself...
