The rush to be the first to break a story has become more addictive in the journalism realm than Blue Magic in “Breaking Bad.”
Regardless of if the intention was to break a story, a prime example of how rumors gain traction came up Saturday night when a Western Kentucky University broadcast news student and Bleacher Report contributor Sam McGaw tweeted out a rumor he read about LSU football coach Les Miles.
“@sammcgaw: There are rumors that LSU head football coach Les Miles will step down on Monday after allegedly having an affair with a student. Hmm...”
McGaw stated in additional tweets that he read about the innuendo on an online message board. The problem? The site was Bamaonline.com, devoted to LSU’s biggest rival.
Now Mr. McGaw certainly wasn’t the first person to make this assertion about Miles, true or not, and certainly won’t be the last. But he should have known better.
If youre last.

Alabama delenda est.
with all due respect mister Sanders, but doesn't this article describes exactly what you do?you are a journalist but you seem to have no problem posting rumors you hear.
Exactly. You have recently posted things about a former staff member and when questioned, you deleted the posts and never responded. A little different scenario but just as guilty.
It's a new day in Auburn football!
As the songs says - DON'T SLOW DOWN!! Eufaula, Alabama! WDE!!!
Another journalism lesson... LSU is not Bama's biggest rival.
Ever to Conquer!!
