So Chris Mortensen was on 950 KJR this morning to talk NFL on the "Mitch In The Morning" show, and he decided to address the whole Brett Favre-ESPN situation. There's nothing really controversial said, but the guy seems to think he's a "fact checker" now....
The thing that amazes me the most about Mort's whole attitude when it comes to this is that he comes off like a complete hypocrite. If you take every story that Mort tried to break in the past two years, he did the EXACT opposite of what he said he did in regards to this story. I mean the guy has a laundry list of stories that he jumped the gun on, and now he's going to pretend that he's cautious?
You have the Mike Vick indictment story, Ron Rivera as the next Cowboys Coach, Eli Manning's injury, the Parcells to Atlanta guarantee. He even said at one point that Brett Favre WAS NOT going to come back this season.
Again, I don't deny that he's a hard worker, but he doesn't need to try and pretend that he's this beacon of journalistic integrity, when he's clearly not.
