I understand that can happen. But do they correct it when they discover they were wrong, or do journalists just take a care free attitude and continue to print unverified and nonfactual reports with no ramifications or responsibility? Maybe they do, I don't know.


Many think that they are above accountability. That's why so many newspapers are losing circulation.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports the Redskins recently offered their first-round pick in 2008 and their third-rounder in 2009 for Chad Johnson.

The third-rounder could've escalated to a first-rounder based on performance in 2009, but the Redskins were turned down. Mort says this is the first "significant proposal" Cincinnati has received for Chad. There is a chance Washington will up its offer on draft day, but the Bengals aren't budging yet.

So, would that make the Redskins stupid for offering?
Or, would that make the Bengals stupid for rejecting the offer?

What he said. ESPECIALLY given how many needs we still have. Our whole starting O-line is still all made up of guys who are 30+ and injury-prone (as a group; some of them play a whole season), and we need youth at other positions as well. I'd give no more than a single first-rounder for C. Johnson, and even that's a bit generous given his age. Better to just hold the pick and use it.
