Payton reporting prompts ESPN to twist news terms
 
FOX’s Jay Glazer often jokes that ESPN misspells his name when he breaks a story and then ESPN puts the same story on the crawl at the bottom of its screen with the word “sources” instead of “Glazer” in front of the news.

We didn’t realize he wasn’t joking. (He likely didn’t, either.)

Last night’s report from Glazer that Sean Payton has agreed to terms on a new contract with the Saints resulted promptly in ESPN programming the news into its crawl after the term “sources.” That prompted Glazer to call ESPN out on Twitter — and it eventually provoked a response on Twitter from an ESPN producer named Steve Peresman.

Peresman explained that ESPN uses the term “sources” when there are multiple reporters reporting the same thing, including one of their own (in this case, Adam Schefter).

Remeber when it was a respected occupation? Kind of like being an attorney.

ESPN is such a joke. I think as Saints fans we all have hate for them after how disgustingly they handled "Bountygate" (i.e. sending out reporters to try and dig up as much dirt as possible about the Saints organization leading to a completely baseless wire-tapping story.) They are the TMZ of the sports world.

Schefter & Glazer are the two heavy hitters in breaking sports news, IMO. It's too bad Schefter works for ESPN and they do such a thing in order to keep their boy from being scooped. Bad form.
