Darren Rovell mistweeted the death of former NFL player that hasn't actually been pronounced dead and this anonymous sportswriter (has been featured on Deadspin) is ripping Rovell a new one.

start from the bottom:
All so well said. Rovell seems lacking in self-awareness or basic human empathy.

I can't even comprehend doing a comedy tour after putting together an entire season of TV, let alone doing another full season of TV right after it

well he's just a shitty "reporter." I mean he got duped a few months ago by someone twitter regarding a story and broke it as real news, he fucked up a ton of "facts" on the movie Broke that the NFL sent out a memo explaining that he lied about his numbers, and now this.

how he still has a job is beyond me.

I mean all we're talking about is how he fucks up. He's never mentioned ever unless he screws a story up.

he gets plenty of attention whether he fucks up or not. he's been a polarizing figure on the internet for awhile now, and whether you like him or not (i don't) that means attention, and attention in this business means dollars.

unfortunately in this media climate first seems to be the most important thing and this guy knows it, so much that he's willing to come off as an insensitive, moronic douchebag in the process.

another product of media in our time, is that things blow over almost instantly. his employers know that. if this happens in 1995 the media firestorm would have built gradually (as opposed to instantaneously) and forced a much different outcome.
