ESPN-Gate: ESPN explains decision not to report on Favre

Pro Football Talk finally got a response from ESPN on the lack of reporting on Brett Favre sharing information about the Green Bay Packers with the Detroit Lions. In a statement, ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz, said:
    “Like all reports that come in, we gave careful consideration to this one. We couldn’t confirm it. It’s obviously a judgment call. Given the nature of the story, we needed to bring a lot of sensitivity to our reporting and do what we felt was the most responsible thing.”
