During the wee hours of the night (around 12:20am) on Thursday, ESPN issued this apology to the New England Patriots for citing an incorrect report.

In recent weeks, SportsCenter had cited a retracted 2002 Boston Herald report (via the Boston Globe) that the Patriots had filmed the St. Louis Rams' walkthrough practice prior to Super Bowl XXXVI.

ESPN has been coopted by the NFL league office and the network spends part of each day spreading misleading and false information about deflategate. Information that is proven wrong is not retracted and continues to be aired. The writing was on the wall when ESPN decided not to broadcast their special on the league's handling of concussions. All the on air talent is spewing the company line.
