Sports Illustrated still propagating days-old misinformation

Screencapped at 3:54 p.m. today, SportsIllustrated.com’s college hoops page still has a headline claiming that Rod Strickland was arrested for a DUI.  The link leads to a story more correctly reporting that Strickland “was arrested near the Kentucky campus Thursday and charged with driving on a DUI suspended license.”  Why on earth, then, would they leave the misleading headline implying that the arrest was for a DUI?  Seems lazy to me.  I thought we went over this, Sports Illustrated.  Just goes to show that when false information gets out there, it can stick around for longer than anticipated, even when a retraction/clarification is issued.

    Makes them look dumb and very unprofessional, but they just hired Pete Thamel so what the **** do they know about anything anyways.

    The Lexington PD and news media in Lexington need to hold a joint press conference and admit to the world they all screwed up. To continue to allow this false hood to stick around is not justice. You can do better Lexington Police Department. I am not so sure the Lex Herald can do better.

    Don’t hate appreciate. This is a smooth sailing Saturday on the KSR. You got Nichols on top of the game with posts on the half hours, and I’m not sure it’s even possible for Tucker to post anything that isn’t well executed, witty and funny.

    I’m still laughing from the dude that stated last night that people were going to go get their UK information from the Lexington Herald Leader! Uhbwahhahahahahahha!

    The Lexington Herald Leader I tell you! lmao

    #4 – You can’t fight our comments by being nice. You could however fight them by sucking less!

    9 – If I wanted to “fight” your comments, I’d just delete them. It wouldn’t really be much of a “fight,” actually. I’m just trying to get more Twitter followers. We get a 5% bonus for every 100 followers we get. So tell your friends.

    It really is too bad that 5% of $0 isn’t bigger, though. I could use the money.

    Oh well, on ESPN NCAA BB web headline articles, one list Davis as a former IU and UAB coach. Another list Barlow as former Purdue guard. It list Strickland as UK assistant. Not until you click on article does it state former.

    I doubt it was a mistake more likely a headline intended to get people to click on their site. If pressed they can avoid liable by taking the position that the arrest links back to a record keeping mistake relating to the original DUI, which could not fit in a headline. So they can point to the correct story being in the article. A bit like an Enquirer headline.

    #15 – That’s the spirit! I’m a huge fan (not-so-subtle nod to your reply) of a well executed, sophomoric joke. Put that passion into your writing and you’ll be mediocre in no time.
