Yeah...but in this instance, he was doing his job. Simple IMO.
I don't really follow him so can't comment on how seriously he takes himself.

Did he know that he was "bending the rules"? Yes.
Did he know(at the time) that the person who sent him the pic(if that is the case) is going to eventually lose their job? Probably wasn't thinking of that at the time.
Could he have just said.."sources" are saying that JPP had his finger amputated? Yep. But also Tweeting the pic of the doc added much more "punch."

Did the idiot at the facility who sent him the pic(if that is the case) know that they were violating the law? Yep.

Just because you have info doesn't mean you need to report it. Or at least not show the picture - say he had a finger surgery etc, but you don't need to show his actual records.

When Schefter tweeted that Ken Stabler had died one of the first comments was "do you have the death certificate?" I laughed.

That's pretty good.

How many players/union contacts do you think he lost/won't talk to him now

Oh...I somewhat agree with that.

But remember, he is a reporter...first and foremost.

and that means.... if you are legally allowed to do something, you should?

These people don't give two shits about ethics or morals. It's all about being the first to report breaking news so they get all the page hits and revenue.

Exactly.

Do you know what reporter and network was all over the news re this story? Exactly. Adam Schefter and ESPN. Guy has almost 4 million twitter followers. You think he cares after ESPN backed him (contingent upon him not doing anything illegal to get the info re the story)?

Reporters OFTEN look the other way when sourcing/confirming/writing a story.

Reporters report. They aren't priests.

But what's the difference there -- aside from maybe not burning his source? I mean, medical records are confidential because of the information they contain, not because there's anything unique about them as physical artifacts (sometimes, of course, the records aren't even physical documents). Unless there's some other private medical information in the records that you've decided not to disclose because you think it's not relevant or whatever, what's the real difference between reporting the contents of someone's medical records and publishing a pdf of the records?

Feels more visceral, seeing that he has the actual physical document in front of him.

Fair enough. But I'm not sure that has any bearing on the ethical/moral/whatever issue (which you may not have been opining on, anyway).
post #3177 of 4994
Well, I wasn't saying he should be prosecuted, or it was illegal, as much as it was incredibly insensitive and douchey
post #3178 of 4994
Maybe not prosecuted. But maybe a better solution will be to lay his balls on a railroad track and watch as a 104-railcar train goes over them

Greg Hardy suspension reduced announced late yesterday from 10 games to 4.

So hitting a woman carries the same penalty as deflating footballs. Nice. I'm no Pats fan, but even I can see how fucked up that is.
