Analyst: ESPN reporter 'was on a mission'

FYI...I posted the following to my facebook page and to the article out on ESPN:

Dear ESPN,
While I realize the "E" in your name stands for "Entertainment", I would like you realize that you SHOULD have some journalistic integrity while "reporting" sports stories. Your latest coverage of the New Orleans Saints GM wiretapping "scandal" is laughable. When you are proven wrong for running a story with no EVIDENCE, I hope the Saints sue you so bad that the "S" in your name will stand for "Saints". Running a story from an unknown source, with ZERO proof is irresponsible. Quit making up news stories. After this latest report, TMZ has surpassed you in journalistic integrity. You are now among the ranks of "The National Inquirer".

Funny reporting:

ESPN: "A Louisiana state police task force is investigating..."

NFL: "Col. Mike Edmonson, superintendent of the Louisiana State Police, said Tuesday. "We assigned a trooper that works with the FBI to follow their investigation. These are allegations at this point."

More shock journalism by ESPN....ONE state trooper = not a task force.

Even though the NFL is now talking about this, they are being VERY careful about their choice of words. ESPN? Not so much

ESPN Reporter John Barr

EDIT: John Barr - not Mike

Apparently this guy has been hounding anyone close to Loomis or Payton for some scoop. He's on a witch hunt and is trying to dig up anything he can. If anyone has his email ir contact number, post it here so we can bombard his a$$
