Bumped up. If folks are sending in their notes, please make sure to note that in comment threads. Thanks. GO BRUINS. -N
If we make enough noise, ESPN will at least think a second time before running stories such as this. It counts as a major breakdown in journalistic integrity and method.

If you're too lazy to write your own email, then cut and paste the following (text shortened to fit within 500 characters per britishbruin's suggested edits in the comment thread, BN):
I was disappointed you allowed Shelley Smith (with known USC ties) to report the Norm Chow-to-USC story without any balance, fact-checking or due diligence. Your organization abandoned journalistic integrity for the hype of a developing story, which makes me question whether ANY of the information you report is true.
I demand an immediate on-air retraction from Shelley Smith and all other persons responsible for disseminating this story widely across ESPN’s media platforms.
Blue and gold.
