Regarding Urbz, and the importance of intergrity and disclosure in sports journalism. Thoughts?
Last April, Matt Hayes of The Sporting News released a hit piece on Urban Meyer. Today, we take a gander back at one of the worst stories by a sportswriter in recent memory.

Can't read it.
My thought is that if you're really looking for discussion, you shouldn't make it VIP-only.
Vim -- noun: robust energy and enthusiasm : VITALITY
I don't have that ability?
That's not an article, that's a butthurt message board poster getting the chance to have his stupid post turned into a "story".
No depth, no deep counters, no quotes from anyone mentioned in the story debunking or disputing anything written. In fact, calling that an article is false. That is a blog post. There is zero journalism in it. It had as much insight and research as anyone with 10 minutes time and google could do.
Nothing interesting about it, your entire headline is false.
You don't think writers should be upfront with their bias? Isnt this a tRCMB cornerstone?
The editor could have put in that the guy was a UF grad, but the guy reported on facts. It was sourced, quoted, researched. IT was not an opinion piece. That's the only legit point this guy MAY have. And is there bias? Show it. And show what parts of the piece showed "bias" vs. actual reporting.
Agree - basically an Urbz fluff piece.
BTW - I suspect that VIPs now have access to all articles on the network but only the VIP posts on their home board. Can anyone confirm?
Yes. Been that way for a while.
I'm not really sure which article was worse. Biddle's over the top ripping of the story didn't accomplish anything other than to hack away at his journalistic credibility. He's clearly just a fan who's editor for Bucknuts. Zero objectivity. The guy is a crybaby and a shitty writer to boot.

How do you feel about his use if "butt hurt"?
