It's a big deal when football players are implicated in an assault. Ofcourse, it's gonna get published on the front page. I don't agree with it, but it is reality.

And they might have to answer the question during draft interviews. But so what? "It wasn't me and the story was false. Next question."

Clowney got handcuffed at Pavlov's didn't hurt his draft status. The media dragged him through the mud his entire junior season. Didn't hurt his draft status.

This is nothing more than a problem with people believing what they want to believe, and that's a societal problem that won't ever be fixed.

You keep repeating this...and it sounds real deep and all. But people should be able to trust their local media and believe what they are reporting when it comes to the local university. Gong for click-bait with shoddy, sensationalized headlines is what tabloids do. This was a rush to publish a story without doing any fact checking and without any regard to the people it could possibly hurt. That is hack journalism. With all of the negative recruiting these coaches are having to deal with you would think the local media wouldn't be in a rush to provide more fake fuel for the fire. I would bet if it was the reporters son involved they would make sure they got their facts straight before publishing the story.

It's the TMZ style journalism. Do whatever it takes to get clicks / sell copies. who cares if there is barely an ounce of truth behind it.

Something like this happens in tater town and not a word gets out. I guarantee it.

When they deliberately posted potential erroneous information that implies 2 people participated in an assault? If it was your name or someone close to you that got posted, would you feel the same way?

The State could have easily just waited or as a minimum, withheld the names. They had every opportunity to refrain, but they didn't.

Default Re: ALL DISCUSSION ABOUT THE INCIDENT AT 5 POINTS:

All The State did was report on a topic of interest to it's audience based on the information available. They made absolutely no claims to guilt or innocent about anyone. They updated their information in a timely manner. It isn't anyone's place to tell them what stories to run and not run. They didn't do anything wrong, and they don't owe anyone an apology. If you don't like the stories they run, then don't start buying their newspaper since I doubt most of those whining about this actually buy it in the first place. Who buys newspapers now a days anyway?

It's unfortunate that two players were falsely accused. It's shameful that someone at the Five Point Saloon gave the police false information. A representative at the bar should issue a public apology, and until they do that bar should be boycotted. Thank you The State for exposing they liars at Five Points Saloon.

Players take heed. If you dream of being an NFL player, the media scrutiny you are going to get if successful is only going to intensify. So learn to be careful out there now. Deebo and Skai deserve a lot of credit for coming through this.

Good Day!

The State did nothing illegal but there is no question they did something immoral to get money via clicks. You don't report the names until charges are brought, period. The State jumped the gun and Muschamp called them on it, I believe he said they operated like the National Enquirer. They didn't care about getting the story right, they cared about running with a one sided report and sensationalizing it even more to get more clicks. There is no defense for them. No question what they did was legal but it sure as hell was immoral as well.

Thank Yancey for the link to the video. Right after I locked the thread about the
incident involving the players, he sent me a PM saying "It's Blowing Up Right
Now" and a copy of that link, After I watched it, I felt like it needed to be
posted and allow y'all to discuss it. ...It's also why I said in the OP to keep
the players out of the discussion. They've gone through enough on this and the
State is now under the microscope.

I don't believe they did anything immoral. Not in this case. And they absolutely DID get the story right. There is no sensationalizing going on here. The was no spin. That is all in the heads of people that already hate the State because of Ron Morris, who did really deserve the hate. They started at the begining and it was an ongoing story, and in the end they got it right from beginning to end. If our players get in some kind of trouble with the law I WANT to know about it right away not weeks from now. The public has THE RIGHT TO KNOW. That is why police reports are public in the first place. Was it immoral for the media outlets to cover the Duke Lacrosse scandal just because they turned out to be innocent? No. It's ridiculous the even think that.

Reporting public information for clicks is not being in anyway immoral.The States kept right on top of the story and as the police found out the truth The State told us what was really going on. It's how they make their living. As long as they don't lie or report privileged information, they are just doing their job. There was vindication in the end. We should be putting away the pitchforks and celebrating. But if you want use the pitchforks, then point them at the people of the bar that talked to the police.

It's how they make their living. As long don't lie or report privileged information, they are just doing their job. Also, Skai's and Deebo's reputation were not damaged one little bit because . If anything they look like hero's and victims here. They were victimized the ones at the bar that actually made the false accusations. The Police complimented Skai for how he acted in the video tape when the guy he came in with gets into a fist fight with some guy? That is great! We should be putting away the pitchforks and celebrating. But if you want use the pitchforks, then point them at the people of the bar that talked to the police.
So when the Columbia PD told the state point blank that they shouldn't report this when they did because it was from 1 person and could be wildly inaccurate they made the responsible journalistic call to not only write about it but then actually include names? If you think that is responsible then you're nuts. It was done because two of the names were football players and they knew they could make money off of it. All they had to do was wait 24-48 hours then report it with all the facts, but they didn't they wanted to be first and accuracy be damned. And just so we're clear we have the RIGHT to know when the facts are fully gathered, not before. Frankly I hope Muschamp talks to the USC Athletic Department and it's made very clear to The State their screw ups are done as of now the next time they pull a stunt like the did they'll be blackballed from USC media events, practices, ect.
