It says something about our media culture when someone feels they got the story right when their initial report stated that Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittenton pulled pistols on each other, which even the Proffer of Facts in Crittenton's case doesn't support. But hey, I guess Vescey felt that because he was "less wrong" if judged by Crittenton's account, it was worth saying "Eff you" to all his critics. I have no idea who Mike Wise's source on his story was (I don't think it was Arenas - maybe it was Stevenson), and I'm starting to doubt whether Wise's story is absolutely correct, but that doesn't make Vescey's story correct either. It shouldn't be a badge of honor in the journalism world to get the story less wrong than one of your fellow journalists. UPDATE: Dan Steinberg nails it with this line: So he got the date of the confrontation wrong, the fact that they drew weapons on each other wrong, the entire tenor of the episode wrong, while bringing up a complete red herring about gambling on league games. He, more than anyone else, was responsible for this entire incident being framed as a Wild West shootout rather than the ridiculous bit of immaturity that it was. And now he finds his great love for the truth has been sullied by Mike Wise. Swell.
