'Skins.com : Washington Post inaccurate

Recommended Posts

Redskins.com all over the post lately, here is the latest

The Washington Post today inaccurately reported that the Washington Redskins had cut defensive back Ryan Clark.

"Imagine how Ryan felt after reading this morning's paper, packing up his bags and coming to Redskins Park to turn in his playbook," said Vinny Cerrato, vice president of football operations. "As his fellow players were commiserating with him in the locker room, the coaches were frantically searching for him to tell him the newspaper had it all wrong. Ryan is not being cut."

The team will officially cut 14 players by the NFL deadline on Tuesday, but does not plan to publicly announce the names until all are final.

"This guessing game to decide who will be cut has consequences, especially when the paper goes with information from uninformed sources. I wonder sometimes whether they stop to think that they are playing with people's lives and careers," Cerrato said.[/Quote]'Washington Post' Inaccurate; Clark Not Cut

Well, Ryan Clark better makes the team because if he ends up getting released when team has to cut down to 53 players the Redskins are going to look really stupid with their snide remarks.

Are you kidding?

Whether Clark gets released next round of cuts or not is irrelevant to the incorrect reporting that he was cut in this round of cuts. A report that came out before the cuts were announced and the team indicates had inaccurate information. This is a bad deal for the Post.

Not only is the team obviously getting tired of the Post's quality of writing right now, but, they are targeting these guys and beating them about the head and shoulders.

I am with Vinnie on this one. Bad reporting, even if it was reported prior. This is the same mechanics that wild rumors get started, instant communications, need for a scoop, and half a$$ reporting. Basic fact checking should be above scoops.

BTW, don't reporters usually have team sources that will save their butt from reporting the wrong thing? Like they will not provide the info but they will give them the reality check to ensure they are not completely wrong with their story.

The point I was trying to make isn't so much about the inaccuracy in reporting, but the childish way the Redskins have responded to this article through their own website.
